Re: "Nothing dramatic or revolutionary".
I think the point is that people assert that the Soviet Union was a police state that filled the jails with people whereas under capitalism there is freedom. The truth, in fact, is that in the greatest capitalist country on earrth there is a higher proportion of the population incarcerated today than in the Soviet Union at the height of what is described by bourgeois commentators as "the terror".
