Nationalized Women

In every revolution, one finds individuals who take advantage of the chaos for their benefit.  As the Bolsheviks came into power in Russia, some used the new creed of Marxism-Leninism for their own gain, before Moscow put a stop to it.  In Suizran, north of the Caspian Sea, it was proclaimed that all the women should be nationalized.

Whereas before, the bourgeoisie hoarded the most beautiful women for themselves, leaving the workers and peasants with second best, from then on, all women would be shared communally.

When Lenin and Moscow found out, their disapproval was quickly made known.  The order was rescinded, and even possessing a copy of it was made a crime.
