“Вредители есть и будут, пока есть у нас классы, пока имеется капиталистическое окружение”. - Ю.В. Сталин
Lies from liars...
It is the underlying assumption of all anti-communist judgements of “Stalin repression” that the “wonderful, humanitarian, democratic” imperialist countries would not possibly stoop to massively, perniciously organize and richly finance subversive and disruptive activities within a competing socialist (or even a non-socialist) country.
To record the monumental horrific and ghastly crimes of “civilized” imperialism over the centuries goes well beyond the scope of this essay. Slavery and the slave trade, the brutal subjugation – if not genocidal extermination/ near extermination – of native peoples, colonialism and neo-colonialism, murderous wars after wars; all of this is somehow shoved under the table and is effectively barred from discussion.
The successful fruition and striking progress of a rival socialist system in the very large land area known as the Soviet Union – was viewed correctly(!) as an existential threat to the brutal capitalist system of mass exploitation and super-exploitation with all its resulting horrors.
, the imperialist powers exerted every effort to destroy Soviet socialism from within and without!
The massive endeavor was simultaneously external and internal.( Collapse )
