O-Bi, O-Ba, End of Civilization

Classic. With English subtitles. Very interesting film shows the view on the other side of the Iron Curtain of nuclear war. Pretty good until it flakes out at the end.

Just as with "The Bed Sitting Room" on the English-speaking side of the planet, it appears whenever the common man tried to think seriously about nuclear war he inevitably descended into wild fantasy. This played a big role in suppressing civil defense programs, since ordinary people had only been presented with fantastic visions that precluded any rational response.

In both the East and West, the population got propaganda about how it was completely impossible to survive nuclear war as the ruling classes frantically built shelters with their tax revenues. This has continued unabated until the present day.
