75673 - Artificial Heaven

Ν. Lygeros

As Heaven was impossible for Soviets, they had to create artificial heaven to convince their believers. It was the place of forced happiness. And it was the same for all the workers. That’s why forced work was interpreted as something indispensable for the Soviet system. Their heaven wasn’t obvious and for many people it seemed like hell on Earth. So they needed to explain the reality of this fake history. At the start, the Soviet Union was presented as their heaven. And the believers of this strange religion thought that it was the truth. But only after years, this reality was dead. After decades, even the believers started to understand that this artificial heaven had nothing in common with heaven. But in some countries far from the Soviet Union this fake model was still alive. They continued to believe in it not only after the end of World War II, the Yalta Conference but even after the fall of the Soviet Union. It was really incredible. This blindness was impressive but also dangerous. Those believers thought that they could change reality to restore their ideal artificial heaven.
