Soviet atheist propaganda in 'Godless Utopia'

The 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s were not good decades for Christian, Jews, Muslims or any other religious group in the newly atheist post-October-Revolution Soviet Union, as the chilling anti-religious propaganda in Godless Utopia—the newest book in Fuel Publishing's series on weird Soviet design—makes clear. "The Soviet school is a school of militant godlessness," one 1931 advertisement reads, while others show American lynchings, corrupt and unproductive priests, ignorant Muslims and treasonous Jehovah's Witnesses, to name just a few scenarios. "Another gullible sectarian is glad to hear prayers from 'over there,'" this 1971 poster reads. "They are, as a rule, stained with outright anti-Sovietism." The radio broadcasts "Ave, Maria," "Slander of the USSR," "Anti-Sovietism," "Our Father."
