The Soviet Union, which was once a world superpower in the 19th century saw itself in chaos going into the 20th century. These chaoses were marked by the new ideas brought in by the new leaders who had emerged eventually into power. Almost every aspect of the Soviet Union was crumbling at this period both politically and socially, as well as the economy. There were underlying reasons for the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union and eventually Eastern Europe. The economy is the most significant aspect of every government.
They imprisoned the opposition, politicians and started attacking the church leaders. They also tried to abolish the monarchy. Counties behind the Iron Curtain were becoming communist quite rapidly and capitalism on the other side. The USA and Great Britain were starting to panic that communism was spreading and starting to take over. When the Iron Curtain was up, it had many effects on the different countries and its people.
The Hungarian Revolution was a spontaneous nationwide revolt against the government of the Hungarian People's Republic and its Soviet-forced policies. It was the first major threat to Soviet control since the USSR's forces drove out the Nazis at the end of World War II. In spite of the failure of the revolution, it was exceedingly significant, and came to play a position in the downfall of the Soviet Union years later. Hungary experienced not only Soviet occupation, but also political oppression and economic decline. Many were critical of Hungary’s problems due to Soviet control, especially political oppression.
This was the beginning of the Russian Revolution, a prolonged event that deeply impacted Russia and the whole of Europe and the effects of which continue to be felt today. As the tsarist regime fell, Lenin and the Bolshevik Party entered Russia. They operated on a Marxist platform and operated quickly to “develop Russia in such a way as to spread social revolution throughout Europe and eventually the world.” Though their opponents were also Marxist the Bolsheviks were the most militant, least tolerant and most revolutionary. After toppling the remaining dictatorial powers during the October Revolution the Bolsheviks created multiple Soviets and disclosed all the secrets of the tsars, including the treatises that had been made with other countries. All of this was done in an effort to expose the corruption of the capitalist countries and the old regime.
In the year 1922, after a long and bloody civil war, the Soviet Union was officially formed. After World War II, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, USSR, established itself as one of the world’s superpowers, opposite of the United States of America. The Communist regime reigned over the Soviet Union until 1990, shortly before the Soviet Union collapsed and was formally dissolved in December of 1991. However, during that reign, many rules and regulations were imposed on all aspects of life, including music. Many musicians were denounced because their music did not conform to the Soviet regulations.
years and years the world has been blinded by the evils in society. There are three main matters that shade us from the truth every day. These are corruption/greed, media takeover, and ignorance. Corruption is one of the worst evils to enter society; it has seemed to become a type of faith on its own. The way it is evil is that corruption has blinded society by the way we think and act, it allows people in society to think that doing evil things is an ok thing to do.
The Yalta Agreement in February, 1945, gave the Soviet Union complete power to extend its control beyond its borders into the Eastern European Countries under the Red Army, and eventually, Eastern Germany was swallowed into the Communist Regime. Until, the 1980s, the German Democratic Republic (GDR), or Eastern Germany, was under complete control of the Soviet Union. The governing party of the GDR was the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED) until its fall in 1989. At the dawn of the 1980s, the Soviet Union was facing economic collapse. Economic failures in the Soviet industry were frequent, and virtually all economic and social advancements had stopped.
The main reasons happen everywhere in the world. Societies always fall apart so if you know the main reasons you could stop societies fall apart. My first reason is that corrupt leaders make societies fall apart. An example is in North Korea. The North Korea's leader got the country into billions of dollars in debt causing the people of Ukraine to riot and rebel.

If the economic state was disordered to the laboring masses, it was unstable to the entrepreneurial classes. The trendy myth of the "Bolshevik" quickly grew: a fear of conspiratorial activity amid citizens who were Communists and the newly founded Soviet Union, committed to global revolution and the oust of capitalism. The challenges, the instability, the uncertainties, and the economic fall down created by the war were far harder to deal with than any circumstance that existed before the war.
Famine, basis social structures, civil war and a huge World War where everyday worries, along with a impassive dictator who could have cared less about the Russian underclass.
