The Russian Revolution / Nestor Makhno

To this day he is revered as a great hero to many Russian and Ukrainians. I found some of his writings to be quite amazing.  

Did anyone read "Anarchist Revolution"? His manifesto on how he would govern Russia?

I think its interesting to think about what Makhno could have done would he have succeeded in defeating Lenin and the White Armies.

It is particularly interesting to immagine if Russia would have chosen Anarchism rather than Bolshivism. Maybe the world would have been spared the Great Terror of Stalin.

I say he could not have been worse than the Romonovs. At least the serfs would have been liberated a lot sooner.
