A List of Similarities Between Silicon Valley and the Soviet Union Goes Viral


Over the Weekend a list pertaining to the similarities between Silicon Valley and the Soviet Union went viral. The list was posted by Anton Troynikov who accurately compared what it is like working for big tech companies and the working conditions of the USSR.

The list contains everything from housing conditions, to the mindset of the worker, to elitism. While the list in large part contains only attributes that pertain to the private sector, in 2017 the Christian Journal covered the apparent political shift of the left towards the resurgence of communism.

Remarkably, the list made by a Twitter user is also somewhat similar to a list that was discovered in 1963 by a US congressman, except the list discovered was the agenda for a takeover of the United States by the political ideology behind both the Soviet Union and Communist China.

The list of things that happen in Silicon Valley and the Soviet Union is as follows, according to Anton;

  • Waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it’s of poor workmanship and quality
  • Promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out
  • Living five adults to a two-room apartment
  • Being told you are constructing utopia while the system crumbles around you
  • ‘Totally not illegal taxi’ taxis by private citizens moonlighting to make ends meet
  • Everything slaved to the needs of the military-industrial complex
  • Mandatory workplace political education
  • Productivity largely falsified to satisfy appearance of sponsoring elites
  • Deviation from mainstream narrative carries heavy social and political consequences
  • Networked computers exist, but they’re really bad
  • Henry Kissinger visits sometimes for some reason
  • Elite power struggles result in massive collateral damage, sometimes purges
  • Failures are bizarrely upheld as triumphs
  • Otherwise extremely intelligent people just turning the crank because it’s the only way to get ahead
  • The plight of the working class is discussed mainly by people who do not work
  • The United States as a whole is depicted as evil by default
  • The currency most people are talking about is fake and worthless
  • The economy is centrally planned, using opaque algorithms not fully understood by their users

The list which was published in 1963 contains the forty-five goals for a communistic takeover of the United States and in comparison to Anton’s list suggests that some of the goals have already been completed.
