"Bolshevism was defeated easily because it offered the Utopia for everyone." This was the common view of historians Nekrich and A. Heller in 1986 in "Utopia in power". This criticism deserves weight because the actors of Bolshevism, although advocates of the egalitarian dream, did not assert the universal immediacy and ease of regaining the economic and social power. They rather had people's expectations that were legitimate and feasible, and were not treated as their opponents. To understand the stakes of 1917 which will form the basis of our analysis, it is necessary to examine the state of political, economic and social development of Russia and its people. This year 1917 was the first year of war for Russia. Economically, this implies an economy that adapted to the population and subject to deprivation, and other restrictions as illustrated by the introduction of ration cards which highlighted the threat of famine. Demographically, Russia literally bled with about 8 million men killed, wounded or maimed. The year 1917 is also the year of internal change for Russia. The war regime changed with the abdication of Tsar Nicolas II to be followed by a fragile interim government that Lenin warned: "if farmers take land, be sure they do not take you, [and ] they do not ask us.
