    The Soviets continued to purchase products on the capitalist market...

    They paid for licence production of the Gatling gun, the Maxim machine gun, a range of tractors and truck designs from the west, the Dakota transport aircraft,

    the huge irony in what you are saying is that China did not become powerful because of capitalism.... it has become powerful because of US consumerism.... the US model of consumption demands cheap products their economy cannot possibly provide, so they need an external cheap labour source to produce the crap they fill their lives with.... the ideal companion to a capitalist republic like the US is a slave labour economy like China where the workers work for minimum wages with no rights. The big companies make all the money of course...

    The big anniversary is mere day away and yet nobody in good old Russia seems to give two shits about it which seems to be driving everyone insane in homelands of Das Kapital (TM) Cool

    Revolution, what revolution? Russians show little interest in 1917 centenary

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/06/revolution-what-revolution-russians-show-little-interest-in-1917-centenary


    Alongside mandatory ''Evil Putin does not like our revolution'' shtick we have cold hard facts like these:

    ...“We realised we had to mark the revolution centenary because it’s one of the most important events of the 20th century, but we also see that there is little interest among the audience,” said Konstantin Ernst, the powerful head of Russia’s Channel One, and a producer of the Trotsky series. “Over the last year we’ve released various trial products, and there was no real reaction from the audience.” ....


    And comment sections on articles like these are the best.

    You have on one side bunch of assholes that are butthurt that their countries did not help Nazis exterminate Russians (and other assorted subhumans) and on the other side you have bunch of commie dickheads who want to exterminate Russians because they feel that Russians have ruined their promised Red Utopia.

    Watching these two packs of retards devouring each other in comment sections is almost as fun as season 2 of Stranger Things. lol1

    The opinion of the Russian masses has always been something to ignore by the west and its cultural proxies in Russia.
    The Germans, Brits and Americans helped foist the Bolsheviks into power since they wanted to break up the Russian
    Empire (for obvious reasons of gain). The Russian people paid in the blood of millions for this western meddling.
    One could argue that WWII (which was 80% on the eastern front) would not have happened if there was no ideological
    pretext and the weakening of Russia through mass repressions never took place. Hitler was convinced that the Bolsheviks
    and Stalin had made Russia/USSR weak and he was partly right. He just made the terminal mistake that Russians would kiss
    Teuton invader ass. Especially one preaching genocide of Russians.

    For context it should be noted that a lot of the industrial and military capacity of the USSR was developed during WWII and
    not before. The credit goes to the Russian people who sacrificed everything for the war effort. Russians have no reason
    to commemorate the 1917 Bolshevik coup (that is exactly what it was).

    And to celebrate anniversary here is some light reading for all the fans out there, enjoy! thumbsup

    The Real Lenin: Traitor, Parasite, Failure

    http://russia-insider.com/en/real-lenin-traitor-parasite-failure/ri21542

    One tiny bit relevant for today:

    ...All this was sustained in large part thanks to German money. In 1917, a grand total of around 50 million gold marks were transferred to Lenin’s party in Petrograd (this translates to an amzing $1 billion in today’s currency). This helped fund the Bolshevik printing presses, and there are numerous accounts of money being handed out for protests against the Provisional Government throughout 1917 (all standard features of modern color revolutions)....

    But so much more as well in the article, have at it...

    Yes, though Latin America is delayed compared to Europe or North America, Argentina is the "most advanced" in the region in this aspect, they are beginning to teach very young kids in some schools and kindergarten.

    I want to know do people in other countries consider universal healthcare to be Communist? Here in America, universal health care is portrayed as taking away the liberty of Americans.  The right-wing here portray it as people in Canada and Europe waiting in long lines and traveling to the US to get health care because it is rationed.  I want to know how do people in Russia and other countries in Europe and elsewhere feel about the health care in their respective countries? Also do you guys think Americans are extreme and narrow minded in their opinion that Universal Health care shouldn't be a right?

    Just want to understand the propanganda about health care from an international perspective.

    Here in New Zealand we have a healthcare system that should be universal, but there are long waiting lists for most important things.

    Personally I think the whole point of paying taxes is to pay for things everybody needs... roads, railway lines, airports, ports, healthcare for everyone, and education at least up until tertiary level.

    It seems to me that Americans leave the control of their health to insurance companies... in my limited experience with insurance companies I think that is a bad thing right off the bat.

    Isn't it funny how Americans seem to fear big government... something that can be replaced by vote if needed, though I appreciate when there are only two options it is not really much of a choice. Other westerners seem to fear big business... which I think is rather justified.

    Here in Dunedin an American company that owns controlling interest in Cadburys has basically decided to close our factory and move all production to Australia.

    Our factory was making a profit and can operate cheaper because it does not need to be totally air conditioned like those in Australia do, but there was a chance of making a larger profit with fewer overheads by closing our factory down so they will.

    Dunedin is not a huge country with a large population that buys a lot of Cadburys products so they clearly think it wont hurt their bottom line.

    Clearly they are thinking about their income to maximise it as much as possible and to be honest I can now pick up a nice New Zealand brand of Chocolate like Whittakers and feel I am getting back at Cadburys and helping a company that continues to make chocolate in New Zealand.

    I doubt Cadburys is shaking in their shoes however.

    Hey Garry B , do you think America is a very right wing country?

    Moreover, are there mass school shootings in your country like here in America? Conservatives say teachers should be armed and that gun free zones attract shooters. However, my opinion is that instead of entering the school; the shooters who want to maximize body count would simply wait until school lets out at 3 pm in the evening when hundreds of kids are walking out. Armed with a semi-automatic could kill hundreds but it has never happened. Also mass shootings at school are very rare.

    People who want to kill are going to find a way... banning guns will just annoy legitimate gun users who have done nothing wrong.

    ISIS has shown a busy street and a truck can kill more people than a lone gunman... I dare say there are plenty of other ways they could kill in a mass scale too like poison or simply starting fires in places where there is a high fire risk.

    From derailing trains and making aircraft crash or ships sink there are plenty of things people can do if they want to go for the record.

    That dickhead who shot people at that concert was clearly going for the record and a really good start for the US is to stop putting these ass holes on the news.

    Don't mention their names... report the crime and talk to the victims but don't mention the criminal... that was clearly what they wanted... their five minutes of fame... don't let them have it.

    Guns are not evil, bullets are not evil, people can be.

    Most killers are cowards... they want a body count and they don't care who.

    They never plan an attack at a shooting range or a police station for a reason.

    There are sometimes shootings on army bases but that is not so much planned as where it happened.

    Guns in schools would be a bad idea with bullying... though after a few bullies get shot because they picked the wrong target might sort out that issue too...

    The problem with guns is that they create fear but some people mistake fear for respect and think they get respect when they show a gun.

    Of course that sort of respect can get you killed.

    If I lived in the US I would take legal steps to be able to carry a gun to make me feel safe. Whether it actually made me safe or not is another question... carrying a gun wont stop you getting run over by a bus or shot by someone else with a gun.

    In the US there are a lot of guns and if you make guns illegal then the only people with guns are the police and the criminals.

    The other problem is that a hand gun is the least effective gun type... low accuracy, poor range, low stopping power.

    A rifle or a carbine are much better weapons.

    Here in New Zealand hand guns are rare and heavily regulated, which I think is a good thing... but if such guns were more easily available then I would think they should be more available to all.

    Banning guns is like banning drugs... it only means those prepared to break the law will have access to them, it does not make them go away, just makes them more expensive.

    If guns were illegal here instead of rifles and shotguns I would have pistols and SMGs because that is what I can't have at the moment and so if I am going to get illegal guns they might as well be fun like the silenced makarov pistol and the APSB and of course fun stuff like the Vityaz and SR-2 and Kedr/Klin and Kashtan.

    And now this British politician porn accusations . Why is it important ? Because it shows the efficiency of the state propaganda disinformation public opinion manipulation . Coming straight after Donald Trump tweet ! The public needs to normalise this racist terrorist tweet by US president ( diverting public opinion ) It is a favorite of the BBC . It is called a sheet sandwich . Character assassination is easy on the Web . You can hack the browsing history of a mobile to include visits to porn sites . Even I was subject to it , and had to complain to my MP about the activities of their special boys . The lesson for me is that they will try this with our politicians . So they must use secure modes of communication .

    God , they catch on quick ! To divert public opinion further , all of a sudden somebody must look worse than Trump . He must fall on his sword in public . Wow ! Flynn must be roasted in public for TV consumption for a few weeks . Any more skeletons in the closet ? Good time to come out now .


    @ Gary B

    I believe the original law in America allowed gun ownership to defend against state tyranny. When the state was young and had many opponents . If the American people were not busy killing each other , with guns . Then they have a chance to unite and sort out the political mess in the country . So the public can keep weapons in armoury . Voluntarily . This protect their rights . And so keeps weapons out of the streets . Areas that do this , will see a fall in gun homicides .

    If I was a violent criminal I am hardly going to pick the fit young men to attack.. I want a weak victim I can dominate.

    Like it or not, even a little old lady with a pistol she can handle... even if it is a .22lr calibre weapon.. can seriously hurt or even kill the biggest strongest man with a projectile through the heart or brain.

    Whether it is a wasps sting that can be used aggressively and repeatedly, or if it is a oncer like a bee sting that will ultimately end up killing its user, it just makes crime a less desirable way of making a living.

    If you know everyone is carrying you are less likely to piss people off...

    Obviously there are people who abuse the power.

    Yes problem is with people who misinterpret the original law . In order to stop state tyranny , people do not need to keep weapon at home . They can obtain permission from local neighbourhood group ( local milita ) to take weapon out . For the sole purpose of defending against state troops who opened fire on demonstrators or political groups . This is the right interpretation of the law . Others who are found to possess firearms in public , without permission from armoury or local milita , face a heavy fine or worse . For fighting armed criminals then only police to respond . This is civil matter . Me thinks !

    Except I think a right to defend yourself goes beyond just stopping the tyranny of government.

    The police are not always there in time to save you.

    I mean if someone robs your house and you admit you left your doors unlocked your insurance might not pay out for the theft... so where do you draw the line in actively taking steps to keep yourself and your property safe from those who don't obey the law?

    A home invasion could involve a group of men breaking into your house and killing your entire family and also stealing your property... the question of whether the police get there in time to do anything would not be something I would be interested in.

    I would have good locks on the doors and windows, a plan with all the family members as to what to do, and some sort of alarm system.... and I would also have a gun and practise using it.

    I am not saying I am going to chase those criminals and catch them like some TV character that solves murder mysteries, but I am going to make them think the next house on the street is an easier target... or better the next neigbour hood down the road.

    I have heard there are places in the US where the police wont go at night... WTF do those people do when they find themselves in trouble?

    Equally it seems if you are black in the US it seems to be likely you are the one going to get shot by a policeman whether you have a gun or not, so how can you claim they should let the police deal with it when they are clearly not doing their job.

    BTW all my firearms are locked away and I have no guns for self defence... I did use to play hockey so anyone who breaks into my house had better be a faster runner than me or know how to duck really fast... and to be honest if I do swing it wont be to give them a sore arm or leg... I will be swinging for the head and as hard as I can manage which means very likely a serious brain injury or even death... but that is not my problem... it is the perpetrators problem.

    I don't break into other peoples houses and steal stuff, so I have no problem with people taking action to defend themselves and their property.

    @GarryB

    It can be done . There are already communities in USA , that are called gated communities . Granted they comprise of well off middle class Americans . Nevertheless they employ private security that carry guns . In such environment there is no need for households to have guns at home . This may point the way for the future . Other neighbourhood can employ security guards . Move shops outside . Government can help in this . Inside residential area then , no guns . Or if so , kept on shooting range . To be taken out only in conditions that I mentioned . That will be very rare . Nowadays .

    Hahahaha.... and the first time their kids go to some ones house outside that gated community they shoot their friend because they find their friends dads gun under his bed fully loaded and they play with it like a toy because they have never been allowed to touch a gun before... the thing they see on TV and movies every day of their lives and are not allowed to touch.

    The real problem is not solved by fencing people in.... many people would hate being in a fenced in community... only fear creates such things...once you are in there the people on the board that run that place can tell you what colour you can paint your house and how often you have to mow your lawn... fuck that.


    It is way too high a price for alledged safety... they will hire people on the cheap and who can they get for the job?

    Old retired cops or young inexperienced people who failed the exams to be a cop.

    Rentacops are not respected in the US amongst the law enforcement community, nor by Hollywood.

    besides how many rent a cops do you think they can afford per head of population in each community?

    And that is great for the 1% and the middle class but what about the majority of americans?

    Another problem is lack of accurate numbers.... people throw around figures for people killed by fire arms in the US but often they are distorted.

    A gang member shoots another gang member and that is recorded as a friend shooting a friend and becomes an "accidental" shooting.

    I would not trust the numbers coming from the anti gun establishment as far as I could kick them.

    People need to be properly educated on fire arms and respect them and act responsibly.

    There should be penalties so harsh for the misuse of fire arms that criminals decide it is just not worth using them.

    Using a fire arm in the commission of a crime should result in the criminal treated like they want to murder someone, of course this will result in people defending themselves being arrested for murder because the justice system is fucked up.

    Get a good lawyer and you can do anything you want and get away with it.

    In case you haven't noticed your precious "proletariat" wants to be ruled by "bourgeoisie" scum as practice has proven extensively, your nation being one of many prominent examples
    Bullshit. The Bulgarian working class now has to clean toilets in the west, exploited for pennies, because our neoliberal puppet government privatized our industry to the International bourgeoisie which layed them off. Ask most non bourgeois, noveau riche mafia, or western propagandist Bulgarians and they deeply resent how the free market(one of the freest in the world in our country) exploits them. Almost all of them have warm feelings towards the Bulgarian People's Republic(except when it sold of the macedonian Bulgarians to Tito) and realize that the west lied to them.

    Even right after the 1989 bourgeois revolution the Bulgarian socialist party won and it had to be stopped by a US funded bourgeois astroturfing "protest".

    It seems accusing Russia of election interference is a big hit these days


    Russia meddling in Mexican election: White House aide McMaster

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - The Russian government has launched a sophisticated campaign to influence Mexico’s 2018 presidential election and stir up division, a senior White House official said in a video clip published by Mexican newspaper Reforma.

    U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said in a speech last month to the Washington-based Jamestown Foundation that there was already evidence of Russian meddling in Mexican elections set for July.

    “We’ve seen that this is really a sophisticated effort to polarize democratic societies and pit communities within those societies against each other,” said McMaster in a previously unreported video clip from Dec. 15 that was posted on Twitter by a reporter with Mexican daily newspaper Reforma on Saturday.

    “You’ve seen, actually, initial signs of it in the Mexican presidential campaign already,” said McMaster, a former Army general. He did not elaborate in the clip on how Russia was seeking to influence the election.

    Reforma published a story on Saturday on the comments, which have since been shared many times on social media.

    President Donald Trump’s senior national security aide added in the clip that the U.S. government was concerned by Russia’s use of advanced cyber tools to push propaganda and disinformation.

    A request for comment sent to McMaster’s office at the White House and a request for comment from the Russian government in Moscow were not immediately returned on Sunday.

    The Kremlin has repeatedly denied accusations by U.S. intelligence officials and others of interfering in foreign elections.

    In July, Mexico will elect a new president to succeed Enrique Pena Nieto, who is barred by law from seeking a second six-year term. Congressional seats plus some governors’ races will also be up for grabs.

    According to opinion polls, the frontrunner in the presidential contest is the leftist former mayor of Mexico City, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is running on an anti-corruption platform.

    Lopez Obrador, a two-time runner-up for the presidency and a divisive figure in Mexican politics for over a decade, is seen by some analysts as the Kremlin’s favorite, given the positive coverage he has received from government-funded media outlets like Sputnik and Russia Today.

    Both China and Russia are taking an increasing interest in Latin America as the United States, under Trump, has adopted a more protectionist stance and the future of the North America Free Trade Agreement looks uncertain.

    Lopez Obrador has been a fierce critic of Pena Nieto’s sweeping energy overhaul, which was favored by U.S. officials and oil companies. He has said he would seek friendly relations with the U.S. government but would demand respect.

    In 2016, Russia Today’s Spanish-language YouTube channel began running a weekly video blog entitled “The Battle for Mexico,” hosted by a prominent supporter of Lopez Obrador, according to David Salvo at the German Marshall Fund of the United States, who has written about Russian attempts to influence politics in Latin America.

    Pena Nieto’s office and the foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment on McMaster’s statement.

    Some Mexican political commentators said that there was little reason yet to fear Russian involvement in the election.

    “The point is that Washington hasn’t provided any solid proof for this,” said Marco Cancino, head of Mexico City-based consultancy Inteligencia Publica.

    “So far, it’s just speculation.”

    Lol the U.S has been extremely successful at controlling its puppet down South for decades. Obrador has been steemied time and again. This is just another ploy to help the Mexican establishment, and mask the actual significant interference.

    Of course the Cubans and Russians prefer anyone but the submissive puppets, even if Obrador is not a Chavez type figure, it's better than crap like Nieto but time and again, their efforts are simply no match for the corruption in the country and influence meddling of the U.S and its puppets - as far as Mexico is concerned - to me, a lost country.

    Better to pool resources on flipping Argentina and Brazil back than the shithole that is Mexico. That country will only be ripe for a good cleansing when the U.S empire collapses. Not until then.

    I will say however, Obrador will sweetly clash with Trump, if on rhetoric alone.
