Voltaire Brown, Europe guidebook writer, talks about Russia, its experiment with Communism, and its embrace of pornographic shooting.


Russia


"The dictatorship of the proletariat was great while it lasted.   Russia learned the hard way that the public can be fickle.  One day, it's pogroms, the next it's purges, and the day after that it's hip hop.  To stay in power, Lenin, Stalin, and those who followed needed to make Communism sexier for the Information Age."  Voltaire Brown of Don't Travel Europe


 With world power status evaporated, Russia is trying to make a go at being a pornographic shooting power
