The Bolsheviks died for the same reasons that pits of vipers inevitably lead to dead snakes, once the easier victims are dealt with. Stalin simply happened to be a bit more agile and quick than his competitors (remember too that, early on, that the best of them thought to use the Iron Man as a useful tool, and a ready source of revenue and petty patronage).

Perchance, could your most humble presence answer me a curious quandry? If the Bolsheviks died for our sins, what did the Social Revolutionaries and the Ukrainian anarchists die for? Or were they 'deliberately resisting the inevitable tide of history' as well?

You ought to read up more on Stalin. You might find his views much more in line with your own than you might presently care to admit...
