Examples of soviet in a Sentence

  1. Bella Dodd:

    I was at last beginning to see how ignorant I had become, how long since I had read anything except Party literature. I thought of our bookshelves stripped of books questioned by the Party, how when a writer was expelled from the Party his books went, too. I thought of the systematic rewriting of Soviet history, the revaluation, and in some cases the blotting out of any mention of such persons as Trotsky. I thought of the successive purges. Suddenly I too wanted the answers to the questions Senator Hickenlooper was asking and I wanted the truth. I found myself hitting at the duplicity of the Communist Party.

  2. Samuel Goldman:

    For people who came of age politically before 1989, the word socialism is associated with the Soviet Union or Mao's China, and that doesn't sound like a very good thing, for younger people, socialism tends to be associated with Sweden and Norway and Denmark, and those are much more appealing societies than the Soviet Union.

  3. Ben Sasse:

    This is bizarre and flat-out wrong. The United States is not to blame. America wants a good relationship with the Russian people but Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Putin thugs are responsible for Soviet-style aggression, when The President plays these moral equivalence games, The President gives Vladimir Putin a propaganda win The President desperately needs.

  4. John Mica:

    We're running a Soviet-style train system and a third-world country operation.

  5. Gero Neugebauer:

    The The Cold War paranoia breaking out in Thuringia is bizarre - you get a feeling it's a state bordering Russia rather than Hesse and that Soviet tanks are ready to roll in, the reality is that the Left taking control of a state is a big step toward more German unity.
