PBC0280: joy at coming order

PBC 280 expresses Bolshevik joyful energy in anticipation of building a new and much brighter world. Sometimes appealing to the “children of the factories and plants” (W109), this PBC calls workers to remake the world (W565). It sometimes stresses the extreme importance that the Bolsheviks attached to literacy for changing the world, viewing the world, in one instance, as a typographer’s type case of metal typefaces (W110). One work (W174) using PBC 280 limits calls the new Russia “RSFSR” (the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, the new Bolshevik name for Russia). This PBC is deeply celebratory in tone.
