PBC0036: arrogant confidence

PBC 36 expresses Bolshevik arrogance at defeating the enemy, regathering Russian lands, and establishing the rule of workers. Images of roads appear in this PBC as the movement of the Bolsheviks to retake all Russia, and then the world. One instance describes Bolsheviks’ imminent victory by alluding to the titanic power of the people (narod), moving across large distances extending “eastward to the ocean” (W257).
