I have probably posted this before, but it bears repeating. The failure of communism was its authoritarian core. It was predicated
on a false dichotomy. All or nothing social engineering of homo sovieticus (Trotskyist woke retardation) or bourgeoise decadence.
Social welfare did not require any destruction of the fabric of society and gulags. Russia today is showing the proper way. Elected
government that sets the tone over the economy. People can call this state capitalism until they are blue in the face and have a
stroke, but it is superior to Soviet communism and western capitalism. The latter is just an oligarchic toilet that spends all of its
time leeching the planet with colonial rape. The rabid reaction to Russian economic advances over the last 20 years proves this.
All the yapping about competition and freedom of this and that is for idiots to consume.
The concentrated power in the Party in the USSR created the conditions for the failure of the system. The rot would eventually
prompt the nomenclatura to dream of capitalist decadence and that is exactly what they did and engineered the collapse of the
system from within. In what must be poetic justice, these maggots only got about 10 years of good times (which Navalny sings
the praises of) and their fest was ruined by the professional faction concentrated in the defense and intelligence services that
has been tagged as "siloviki". Putin and others saw through the oligarch toilet system and figured out that some sort of return to
control was needed to restore sanity. It is really absurd how assorted "experts" try to paint Putin as part of an oligarchy. That
would be what the western system is, don't get them confused.
So Russia is an "existential" threat to the west. It presents a system model that undermines the western one. So naturally western
propaganda paints a totally false picture of the state of Russia today.
