Resume: The goal of this article is the attempt to reconsider the historical framework and ideas about the ontological characteristic and historical consequences of the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917. The author demonstrated and substantiates the reasoning that the entire period of the existence of Soviet Power in Russia and USSR represented a unified revolutionary process that was developing upwards approximately until the mid-1950’s, and since the beginning of 1960’s all the way until 1991 – downwards. In the author’s opinion namely this approach allows comprising an integral, logically connected picture, necessary for understanding the more important phenomena and processes which are characteristic to the entire history of the Soviet society. The author tries to define the place for both, positive, as well as negative manifestations of the Soviet structure; based on the analysis of the well-known historical facts, he tries to have a somewhat different look upon the historical-political development of the country in the XX century. The proposed in this article author’s interpretation of the revolutionary paradigm in the history of the country provides a better understanding of the specificity of the historical development of Russia in the XX century, as well as defines the more acceptable and corresponding with the historical logic ways and forms of paradigm remodeling of the entire complex of connections and relationships inside the modern Russian society.
