    The birth of the Soviet Art was preceded throughout the s by an era of intense ideological competition between different artistic groupings each striving to ensure their own views would have priority in determining the forms and directions in which Soviet Art was to develop, seeking to occupy key posts in cultural institutions and to win the favour and support of the authorities. Human rights, and even human material needs, were given second priority behind the needs of the nation's, and the party's, security. the USSR's enormously rich endowments in material resources provided the huge quantities of "fuel" required to run this industrialization machine. the result was an economy run by and for bureaucrats, biased.
