Author’s Note: Some years ago, I acquired some rare volumes of books from the library of the ‘New Communist Party’ (NCP) in London. This noble institution possessed a number of collections directly linked to the old ‘Communist Party of Great Britain’ (CPGB) – which dissolved itself in 1991 during an ideological panic. The NCP had broken away from the CPGB during 1978 on the principle of wanting to continue in the tradition of respecting the reputation and history of Comrade Joseph Stalin. Since then, of course, the NCP has twisted and turned in its ideological alignment and orientation – but I am very grateful for the thirteen volumes of the Collected Works of Joseph Stalin this organisation furnished myself with – particularly as this set included two further books, a Short Course in the ‘History of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (Bolshevik)’ and the ‘A Short Biography of Joseph Stalin’! All these books were printed (in English) in the Soviet Union and are very respectful ‘hardback’ editions. I have placed various extracts on this blog as a tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the USSR – which happened on December 30th, 1922 – and here I place a short extract of the biography of Joseph Stalin! It is clear that there could be no USSR without the defeat of Trotskyism – very much an ‘enemy within’! ACW (26.12.2022)

Why Was the Dead Body of Karl Marx Not Cremated? (26.12.2022)
What we do know is that the mortal remains of Karl Marx are believed to lay in the soil of Highgate Cemetery under a marble monument placed over the grave during 1956 (replacing an older and much smaller gravestone – the current location of which I do not know). Although Karl Marx is often (disparagingly) referred to as a ‘Jew’ – in no way was his burial in Highgate Cemetery in accordance with Jewish tradition (of respectful encasement within a spotless ‘Mausoleum’). At least on that footing we are safe. As there was no ‘Cross’ placed over his grave either – the idea of a ‘Christian’ burial can also be dismissed. We are then left with what looks like an ‘irreligious’ burial very much in accordance with the ‘Atheistic’ or at least ‘non-religious’ ideology of Marx and Engels! As this happened just before the development of ‘Cremation’ as a regular or officially sanctioned activity – the physical remains of Karl Marx still exist. I believe an interesting scientific study could be carried-out if these remains were exhumed and subject to extensive DNA testing. A far more secure and efficient casket could then be designed to hold these remains and they could be more securely interred – protected from the hatred of the Bourgeoisie, their religious lackeys and the political far-right!
History of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union – Bolsheviks – Short Course (1939): Founding of the USSR (1922) [25.12.2022]
Author’s Note: Between 1914-1917 – the Russian people were allied with the UK against the Germans as allies during WWI. In that time, the Russian people lost around three-million casualties (mostly soldiers recruited from the peasant and workers’ class). This pointless mass murder unleashed various Revolutionary Forces throughout society – and the Russian Bolsheviks were eventually propelled into power through their slogan of ‘All Power to the Soviets’! The Bolsheviks were granted the ‘collective’ power held by their working associations (Soviets) – with Lenin ‘elected’ into the role of ‘General Secretary’ of the Communist Party of Russia! As a consequence, Lenin pulled Russia out of the war and thereby saved millions of lives! Following the Russian Revolution and Russia’s extraction from WWI, the UK, US (and twelve of their allies) militarily invaded Revolutionary Russia (between 1918-1921) and inflicted an attempted genocide upon the Russian toiling masses! This was aided and abetted by Imperial Germany which invaded Revolutionary Russia (together with six of its allies) between April-November 1918 (primarily operating in West Ukraine to the joy of the local Catholic population). Between April-November 1918 – British and German soldiers (primarily of working-class stock), fought shoulder to shoulder as ‘allies’ within Revolutionary Russia – whilst their British and German Comrades-in-Arms still killed one another as ‘enemies’ in the mud and filth of France and Belgium! This is part of the duplicitous ‘bourgeois’ history of WWI (and its immediate aftermath) that is never taught in schools nowadays! This mass invasion of Revolutionary Russia cost the lives of at least 10.5 million Russian people and has become known (rather bizarrely) as the ‘Russian Civil War’ – as if the Russians did all this to itself! And yet out of all this destruction, Lenin (and Stalin) cleverly manoeuvred the Revolutionary Russian people through the Revolutionary process, and a war with the entire known world! This they did in an expert manner and then established the ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ (USSR)! ACW (25.12.2022)
