PBC0120: joy at coming order

PBC 120 expresses the intense joy in anticipation of the coming post-war world of harmony among peoples, countries, and even planets. Bolsheviks’ impatient eagerness to build the new world shines through each mention of “Earth” in this PBC: “Let the planet Earth blossom” (W260). The revolutionaries are singing the “wisdom of the world and the joy of the blossoming Earth” (W310). Similarly, the “voice of the red thunder” signals that “Earth’s happiness is coming ever closer” (W381).
