A most monstrous lie...
The abject distortions and gross falsehoods about the “Stalin repressions” arguably add up to the most vicious, longest lasting and most potent lie in human history.
This atrocious fakery has universally become “common knowledge” and is accepted as God's truth virtually everywhere – including Russia, of course.
This ugly deception has been shamelessly repeated, re-repeated and yet again re-repeated by imperialist propagandists and their toadies – and by simply uninformed people - with telling effect.
The smear goes well beyond the wild denunciations of the great revolutionary Joseph Stalin – who has easily become the most slandered individual in all of human history.
This lie aims at obscuring – by and large successfully - the enormous economic achievements and dramatic improvement in working people's lives that the Soviet people achieved under Joseph Stalin's leadership. Colossal gains that were made at the very time that the capitalist world was under the heel of the ruinous Great Depression. Even massive imperialist-directed and -financed subversion were incapable of large-scale disruption, much less wreckage of the USSR's vibrant socialist economy.( Collapse )
