Things are dull in the C.C.C.P.

In order to keep spirits high, the government floods the senses with propaganda and patriotic colors and flags. Most of all are the famous missile parades, the universal sign of a dictatorship.

On game day at a modern soccer arena, flags drape the sides of the stadium.

Even on the sides of brick tenements, brainwashing tactics penetrate the minds of the Soviet people.

At the factories, patriotism is inspired so the workers produce more to power the mighty Soviet economy.

Yes, in Soviet Russia, propaganda is very important because it inspires patriotism.

Patriotism provides that extra boost to keep the rusty gears of communism running smoothly.

After all, that's what Lenin would have wanted.

Tekindus I couldn't agree more :P

The photoshopping is awesome! The stadium seems a little off for the time period (unless this is a modern-day Soviet Union?) but besides that, this is on it's way to being best commie journal I've seen since SimHotTodDy's! :)

Great work!

I like it really much, is excellent work, and that is also really historically accurate (the propaganda).

Keep up the good work.

Or in Russian:

Следите за хорошую работу.

(Sledite za horoshuyu rabotu.)

Incredible update. I love these Soviet CJs, and yours is no exeption. Great photoshopping too! Those giant posters look very realistic.

These pics are fantastic!

It took me a while to understand Soviet culture, but now that I do, this CJ pretty much reflects Soviet life accurately.

'brainwashing tactics' o.O

I didn't realize Simtropolis was a site for political debates... Maybe your perfect cities look perfect just because of 'brainwashed' architects that originally created the buildings within. I say maybe... :)

This is not right place to condemn either communism or capitalism, so I hope we will all stick to the game, that's why we are here.

p.s. I like your pics. :)

Well that is the definition of propaganda. Biased information used to sway the minds of the masses.
Glad you liked the pics though :D
