The Bolshevik aim was a society which would have no need of a standing army, no interest in war, and one where a people's militia, in which all would participate on a rotating basis, would patrol the orderly streets. But with soldier, speculator, and criminal all threatening the Bolsheviks' attempt to establish their authority, and the growing threat of civil war, such aims were relegated to the future. In their place came the determination to impose order by armed force and the politicization of law enforcement.
