    Now it is trendy in the West to praise Trotsky, since he was the kind of "leftist" that they like: one that talks vapid doctrine while he surrenders the country. Exactly the reason why they hate Stalin, which was exactly the opposite and didn't give a damn about implementing the "real" communism but did his job as statesman to perfection. Exactly the reason why they hate Putin too.

    Stalin was pragmatic, Trotsky was a naive idealist.

    He would have ruined the USSR with his pemanent revolution.

    PS Russia truly flourished between 1905 and 1913. That period saw the highest growth rate of any European economy - without ww1 Russian GDP per capita would catch up with Germany by 1940.

    Well, the english people. Always projecting their own misdeeds onto others. We could start with Churchill and his killing of millions of Indians or his order to use chemical weapons in the middle east. Invading other countries is there second most loved pastime (close after football and drinking).

    Russia build a lot of monuments for the victims of communism, Lenin, Stalin... I can´t see any monuments in GB for the millions of Africans, Arabs and Indians killed by the british army.

    Stalins greatest crime was that he didn´t use the WWII to get rid of the artificial borders that Lenin invented to carve up Russia. But he was half-georgian so you could excuse him.

    Trotsky was not naive nor an idealist, nor did he in any way advocate surrendering the country. During Trotsky's leadership of the Red Army during the Civil War, he proved that he and other Bolshevik party members proved that they can be fully pragmatic and ruthless when necessary. While in the late 30s, despite his exile and all his criticism of Stalin's USSR, he still called for internationalists to support it in the upcoming war.

    But the whole point of socialism is to remove the necessity for all that in the long run, and that shouldn't ever be forgotten.

    Stalin acted to simply remove everyone that could remotely pose a threat. He was probably the right man at the right time, but with his approach, socialism can never be built, and indeed the Soviet empire collapsed a few decades later despite all military victories and economic progress of prior years; it only took a decade of economic uncertainty, political instability and a military defeat to detonate the entire country. Because the inevitable contradictions between the stated ideology and how the whole thing actually worked just kept pilling up.

    As for Trotsky, though he conducted a very thorough critical rendering of Stalin and the system he built, his approach of permanent revolution was a dead end too.
    The only system that is not a dead end is the original Marxist analysis and its development into Marxist-Leninism. Which was discarded some years after Lenin's death. Perhaps as a matter of necessity. When you see that a genocidal war is being prepared against you and that attempts at revolution in more advanced capitalist states have all failed; you have to disregard the socialist approach, along with much else.

    Washington financed propaganda outlets are spreading the blood libel that Putin is connected to the Beirut blast.

    Because the crook owner of the ship carrying the NH4NO3 from Georgia to Mozambique owed big money and his
    ship was impounded in Beirut by Lebanese authorities. Apparently Putin is responsible for all Russian crooks and the
    chain of idiocy that led to this incident.

    1) Lebanese authorities impounded the cargo and then paid it no mind. They allowed fireworks to be stored basically
    on top of it.

    2) Workers showed up for some sort of repair activity at the warehouse without paying attention to the dangerous
    contents and started of a chain of combustion events that led to the massive explosion.

    Putin must be some sort of supernatural being able to arrange for such a chain of events. And he did this to undermine
    himself by enabling some pro-west colour revolution in Lebanon. The mind boggles.

    would be bitching about his "persecution".   But in Russia even violent crime is OK as long as the approved people do
    it.   This what liberasts are, they are the Russian version of woke SJW drones.

    Also, they love handing out long prison terms in the USA.   So 9 years is perfectly OK.   It is some sort of European
    fetish to give short terms even for murder (e.g. 15 years).  



    Canada is even "better", eight years in prison given to a local Anglo murderer of a teenager of ethnic Polish origin.

    The murder took place back in 2000 in British Columbia, but it took years for the police to arrest him.

    I think they released that murderer from prison back in 2018.

    I would not say it is his own nation and culture. He demonstrates the classic minority bunker mentality. Most of it delusion that
    crates subconscious and conscious resentment. I say to all such "oppressed" minorities, move to the promised lands of NATzO.
    You will be living in a paradise of your own choice.

    I have also seen a certain "tribal" support for Trotsky all over the place. As if his butchery during the civil war never happened.
    It was called the Red Terror for a reason. Putting it on a pedestal is rather thick and rich for the "terhorism" bleaters.

    The Reds were for Russians.
    Because the same system that uses Russians to oppress minorities also oppresses Russians. It's classic empire, only the Tsars weren't smart enough to build a racial heirarchy and actually give Russian peasants a better lifestyle than all the Muslims, Jews, Poles, etc... in the empire. If anything they were actually treated worse, they were serfs the property of nobles.

    And the Reds very quickly started eradicating all sorts of cholera and other diseases, mass-literacy and education campaigns, expropriating land from properties to the peasants who actually worked the fields, removing all sorts of backwards feudal practices and punishments, gave workers some sort of housing, electification campaign that spread electricity to nearly all corners in just 10 years, granted a lot of social mobility and so on.

    If that hadn't taken place then maybe the birthrates would have kept into 10 per family and there would also be a lot more Russians today, but the country would also look more like India than anything developed.
    Or again, it would have just been conquered by Germany, Japan, whoever.

    As for communism it's an analysis. And it won't go away by killing everyone; if anything by doing that you'll just draw attention to it as people will start to wonder why the powers that be consider it such a threat.
    Napoleon and the 1st French Empire did not abrogate the French Revolution of the borgouise. French society would eventually return to it - the 2nd republic, the 3rd republic, etc...

    As for depopulating a whole continent; the Russian Empire had huge famines every few years, it kept all its peoples in the dark ages with minimum development relying on feudal loyalties. Then WW1 came; and somehow this whole situation of European empires who've run out of land on earth to take over, sending millions to their deaths over national prestige did not amount to depopulation of a whole continent.
    How do you propose the people fight back against such criminal madness - with impeccable conduct and obedience?

    Russians must breed like rabbits but do it all on the quiet because if half the numbers killed by the commies is true they must all be dead...

    Clearly western propaganda is very strong for such hate to be directed at a group that thinks government should work in a different way from the west... but we all know how tolerant the west is...

    The usual self-absorbed, condescending wank fest.

    Elbrus is the only viable VLIW architecture on the planet. Russia is making this architecture work, Intel tried and failed with
    Itanium. Given the 1990s exodus of researchers from the ex-USSR to the west, it is rather clear that the Itanium project
    was an attempt to rip off the Russian knowhow. It failed.

    They killed plenty of non-Russian bandits, feudals, interventionists and imperialists as well as Russian ones
    Everyone backward had to go I'm sorry.

    Don't see what the problem here is to be frank. The Germans were trying to kill Russians, the Tsar didn't care if he killed Russians or sent them to their deaths, Kerensky who replaced the Tsar continued to send Russians to be killed
    And everyone tried to kill the communists as soon as they took power
    Yet you call on the Reds to sing kumbaya.
    By the same means as your are oppressed, do you bring the fight to your oppressor. Who taught you everything you know, who created you in their image - if not your oppressors and ruling classes in the first place?

    As for nation; it's the Russian nation, and the Russian civilization. National in content, socialist in character - that's what a worker's state is. No-one tried to erase Russia's history or heritage. Many churches were blown up, as the clergy was an instrument, but other than that all the galleries, palaces, etc... were regarded as cultural heritage.
    Reds did go a little overboard in the beginning but again, it's a reaction, and you fight with the same methods used against you. The Tsarist regime was one of stiffling paternal autocracy, of nationalism and love for the Tsar drilled into people since birth, of an aristocracy that does everything to appear like gods before the common population - and in order for this scheme to work keeps the common population in ignorance, illiteracy and economic squalor. The ruling classes had contempt for their own people, and their own people reacted with contempt against them, and everything they were associated with or wielded in their interests.

    You must not have gotten the memo that we went from backwardness to launching the first man in space. By the 70s 1/3rd of all scientists on earth were born in the USSR. By some accounts by the 80s this figure rose closer to 1/2.

    The hate you spew for commies because "they kill people" is amusing

    In non commie parlance commies = something that must be killed at all costs... better dead that red... but they are the bad guys... not you.

    And commie brilliant solution to this problem was to send Russians to kill and be killed by other Russians?

    The Tsar was sending Russians to kill communist Russians and Germans, the communist Russians were sending Russians to kill Tsarist Russians and could care less about killing Germans.... why were Russians trying to kill Germans in the first place? Because their bestest buddies Britain and France asked them to?

    Hardly a good reason to fight Germany...

    It's a win-win situation there for someone (other than Russians that is)

    Many western countries had civil wars where they fought their own... are you trying to suggest it is different when Russians do it?

    Which was done in spite of communism not because of it

    Actually without communism the Soviet Union really could not have justified the expense of going in to space. Of course even without communism the west would be isolating them and imposing sanctions and other hostile activity like they are now because the Cold War never really had anything to do with democracy or communism.

    Just imagine how much further ahead Russians would have been of they hadn't wasted a century (and half the population)?

    Pressure turns coal into diamonds... without communism, Russia today would be Albanian today...

    I don't think so personally.

    Russia was always poised to be a major power - regardless of the revolution or not.  It has all the makings of one - large population, large amount of land, a long history of technical prowess, and the resources.  If there was no USSR and or revolution, then there may have been a larger chance of more successful Russian advancement in that resources wouldn't have been wasted plus resources would be concentrated internally rather than propping up fabricated states like: Belarus, Ukraine, Baltics, etc.  These are same countries who currently hold Russian land and various people hostage right this moment.  Actually, because of the revolution, Russia lost territory that was vital (Odessa, Kiev, etc) and that became seperate states.

    Plus, the end result of make belief nations wouldn't exist this the land issues that we have today wouldn't be a current problem.

    I do believe though that Stalin's heavy hand was necessary for a drastic change. I just think that the process would have been slower but more stable if it was not done via a revolution and loss of territory mixed with resource allocation to other non Russian states

    Pretty much anyone willing to fight for regressive claptrap other people thought up of for their own benefit - Tsar, religion, nationalism, borgouise democracy, etc...
    Yes it's all backward

    The one ones the Reds destroyed that there may have been an alternative for were the Greens and the Blacks.

    The Green Army was kinda associated with the Social Revolutionaries (peasant socialists), but really the main motivation for their formation was just everyone coming to their villages and confiscating their grain to feed their own armies or own city populations. They got pissed off and just wanted everyone to leave them alone. So should the Bolsheviks have ideally. Peasants self-rule and working own land is not in contradiction to socialism.

    The Black Army were at times allies of the Bolsheviks but in the end entered a conflict and got crushed. Politically the anarchists associated with the Bolsheviks and other socialist parties. Basically the whole anarchist idea amounts to regressing to the most basic social-economic order of society - that of primitive communism and tribal confederacy. Which makes them entirely useless as an economic unit, but they are at least agriculturally self-sufficient (not modern anarchists but those back in the day were) and highly motivated. So there was an opening for some sort of understanding here.



    And commie brilliant solution to this problem was to send Russians to kill and be killed by other Russians?

    No it was to redirect the oppressed and downtrodden to deal with their oppressors and overlords, rather that fighting the same low-caste pawns of other monarchies as they themselves are.

    It's a win-win situation there for someone (other than Russians that is)

    Would have been great if the Germans themselves turned on their rulers, and it came close to happening.
    They had a revolution in 1919, which the German Socialist Party betrayed later and agreed to become part of a borgouise power structure and parliament. But the character of the revolution was similar enough to the Russian one; just it's leadership was corrupt.

    Which was done in spite of communism not because of it

    Just imagine how much further ahead Russians would have been of they hadn't wasted a century (and half the population)?

    Again you go with your inspired fantasies and 'what if's

    Who are you, to say how history would have turned out?

    We can only go by what we know. What we know is that pre-rev Russia was a country boiling over with an increased amount of social contradictions, inequalities, ideas, and uprisings.
    The revolution did not start in 1917. The first one was in 1905. And before that you had 50 years of arson, revolutionary gangs, various parties, so on.

    So your ideas about "well if not communism" - you miss the whole picture. Everything was heading towards it.

    Secondly, the Tsarist army had what - Belgian rifles, French artillery, British ships. In some units 2 men had to share one rifle.
    By 1941 the Red Army had the largest amount of tanks in the world, with all but the oldest of completely its own designs. It had an airforce, consisting of its own designs, its own production capabilities - the I-16 was for a time the fastest fighter in the world. It's navy was still underdeveloped but that wasn't critical.

    So no I don't see how the Tsarist model could have either survived, or succeeded by the 40s. Nor the borgouise model of the Kerensky government; which was tried in Germany but then coup'd by Nazism.

    When it comes down to it, it's enough to look at the difference between China and India, to understand which sort of economic system is better at modernizing a massive backwards country and population.
    To be academic, China had always been somewhat more cohesive and advanced compared to India, but never to the extent of the difference between the countries you see now.

    And every single one couldn't wait to get the fuck out of there Razz

    Funilly enough they did that after the system started to be torn apart and then collapsed, hyperinflation, shortages, with everything being privatized, all sorts of unrest and wars starting.
    Of course they left. What are they going to do - hang around for oligarchic capitalism?

    Those numbers are not accurate actually, but hey buy into that.

    Your boys were so effective they created so much hate to the point they allowed a fool like Yeltsin to come into power which set the Russians back by decades. Fact is USSR treated its people like dirt, and it's very well documented by people who lived in the USSR and those scientists.

    If there was no USSR and or revolution, then there may have been a larger chance of more successful Russian advancement in that resources wouldn't have been wasted plus resources would be concentrated internally rather than propping up fabricated states like: Belarus, Ukraine, Baltics, etc.

    Actually with no USSR and no revolution then there would be no such thing as Belarus or Ukraine or Baltic states or Finland for that matter... all those territories were Russia.... it was the Far East that was the problem because after losing a lot of territory there would not be the same showing as seen during WWII so they probably would not have gotten all that land lost to Japan in 1905 back... which is probably of more use than land occupied by ungrateful back stabbers in the west of the country...

    Fact is USSR treated its people like dirt, and it's very well documented by people who lived in the USSR and those scientists.

    It created a safe stable culture where everyone could work and everyone had access to healthcare and education, where no one starved or was left to fend for themselves.

    The US treats its people like dirt... get into enormous debt if you get sick or try further education... the US government does not give a shit about the American people... they are cannon fodder for foreign wars to make the few ultra rich actually richer, but in no other way benefits the US.

    When western companies pull production out of China it wont go back to the US and create jobs and help the middle class.... it will all go to Bangledesh and India because wages are cheap...

    USSR is super popular among campus commies precisely because none of them ever experienced communism but they heard that pricks with useless social studies college degrees were taken seriously there so they think it's Utopia

    Also free stuff (all of which was shit and there was barely any of it)

    And they keep forgetting that there were no iPhones, Amazon or Starbucks there either lol1

    USSR could be saved. But GOrbachev came 10 years too late.

    Lol Garry you have such a rosy view of the USSR and the facts and reality of what it was like ar every well documented.

    Your rosy view of the western world is cute to behold too... the west became rich and powerful by being total bastards to everyone but you are trying to tell me a political system which tries to make all people actually equal rather than just paying lip service to the concept like they do in the west is not just not OK but has to be actively removed from the world like ISIS or the plague... except the west actually considers it worse than ISIS... while still spending the best part of the last 40 years investing in and trading with China.

    I personally really don't think 70% of people who do vote really understand what they are actually doing, and really don't take the time to understand the issues at hand... they vote because Hillary is a woman or because Obama is black, but most of all they vote for Trump because he is less scary than Hillary and is less likely (note not unlikely.... just less likely) to start a war with Russia and end the world as we know it.

    Every man for himself and open competition actually sounds like a good idea, but look at the US using sanctions and banning foreign countries... all the total opposite of open competition and free markets... by its own definition the US is not a democracy because it lack a free media, and there are only ever two candidates to realistically choose from... even in the communist system there are a few to choose from... but just like in the US the people get very little say in who gets put forward as candidates...

    And they keep forgetting that there were no iPhones, Amazon or Starbucks there either

    Oh yes, I would be lost without my cellphone... not... and fuck Amazon... never bought a single thing from them in my life... and Starbucks... is he the pilot in Battle Star Galactica?

    Western culture looses its charm as you get older and see through the bullshit and lies... it might appear to be dressed up pretty but a real close look and you will see she really is just a worn out over used crackwhore with a voice slightly to deep to be sure she is a woman or if she just smoked hard all her life...

    The amusing thing is that over the last 40 years this western country has moved from socialism to more capitalism and things have not improved because of it.

    Pay tax, but look after yourself... real capitalism is going to end up looking like Mad Max... the original Aussie one... the rich still trying to control the oil of course...

    USSR could be saved. But GOrbachev came 10 years too late.

    Would it really be in Russian interests to keep those idiots in the family?

    The EU migrant crisis and a lot of Baltic states are thinking that maybe Russia isn't so bad... at least they are white and eat similar food and have a similar culture... and wont stab you in the street... or rape your daughters because in their culture a woman walking alone without a man is "available".

    The real funny thing is that we hear from the west that communism killed the most people in the world.

    Proper studies like Memorial have found the numbers including executed but also exiled was about 2.5 million... which is less Vietnamese than the Americans killed during that war, and certainly less than the number of Iraqis killed during the 30 odd years the US has had them under sanction and attack since the 1990s...

    The real reason communism is hated is because it is a viable alternative... for the US it wouldn't be much different... Democrat and Republican parties are so close on things like sanctions and war... a few minor things they disagree about, which are generally morality issues anyway... the main difference is that under communism you might accumulate power, but accumulating enormous wealth is largely pointless and not really practical.

    That is why the Soviet Union collapsed.... because the people with all the power... and therefore also the power to keep it going realised there was enormous money and assets tied up in the Soviet system they could exploit with their current positions of power and become overnight billionaires... and they did.

    The hilarious thing about the west is that they love these oligarchs from Russia who hate Putin, because Putin made them pay tax and stopped them raping the country for every cent they could get...

    Russia is nothing like communist at the moment, but China is... why is the west only now thinking of using Russia against China.... surely from day one in 1991 when the cold war ended that should have been the plan... use the now democratic Russia to destroy communist China... but western companies were making lots of money with super cheap labour in China....

    The west only cares about communism and human rights when it is a suitable weapon to get what they want, which is why I think the west is full of horseshit and wouldn't believe it if it said the sky was blue.
