No. What he’s suggesting is that you still have people in Russia who are operating under a modified version of the “Stockholm Syndrome” vis a vis communist rule.

No thinking person wants to be ruled by a government like that. Not even workers. You’ll recall that it wasn’t the general citizenry that threw off communist rule in Poland, it was the labor unions.

If a worker has to swap freedom for worker’s rights, that’s a bad trade.
