The point being here, that for all his evilness – Adolf Hitler (who really did ‘kill’ verified millions) – is far more acceptable to the Bourgeoisie once his ‘National Socialist’ regime has been militarily defeated (ironically by the ‘Socialists’), and its threat to the dominance of the world ‘capitalism’ firmly removed! In Russia and China no one believes that their greatest leaders killed millions of people – as there are no bodies, no graves and no grieving masses. The Bourgeoisie, realising the practical weakness in their argument, decided that in Cambodia (Kampuchea) a new approach was needed – and the remains of the tens of thousands of innocent Cambodians killed in the illegal blanket-bombing (and military invasions) of that that country carried-out by the US during the Vietnam War – were simply ‘piled-up’ for tourists to gawk at – and see just how ‘evil’ Socialism can be!

The Sad Demise of the ‘CPGB’ – Or Why My Anachronism is Longer than Yours! (21.2.2023)
My family are proud to be Soviets, British, Chinese and ‘Internationalist’! It is the ordinary downtrodden and oppressed people that constitute the rank-and-file membership of any Communist Party! We, the People, the Workers, are the raw material that comprises any ‘Red Army’ which exists to protect the masses and confront the barbarism and racism of fascism! This is our Red Flag at the top of this article – which I found on a Russian language page! We need a ‘new’ and genuinely ‘new’ Communist Party that rejects the cronyism that defines most of today’s poor excuses for collective action! Do not be afraid – stand up and be counted – you have nothing to lose but your chains!
Neo-Nazi Ukraine: The Shameful Foreign Merceneries Fighting for Hitler! (7.1.2023)
My family are proud that our grandfathers fought during WWII against Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan (and their many Axis supporters)! We are proud that we fought Hitler! Furthermore, as Communists (Marxist-Leninist-Maoists) – we openly show our faces when we march in public carrying the Red Flag of freedom – and we clearly sign our names when we make statements opnely supporting Communist China and North Korea! Of course, we also support Laos, Vietnam and Cuba, but this goes without saying. We condemn capitalism and fascism – and we despise all these misguided people who join ‘White Supremacy’ groups around the world! Long Live Russia, Long Live the USSR – and may Russia soon achieve the major victory the Russian people historically deserve! We say ‘THANK YOU’ to the Russian people for once again defending our freedom against the corruption of the Bourgeoisie!
EH Carr (1946): The Ideological Impact of Bolshevism Upon the World! (1.1.2023)
EH Carr wrote objectively and in-depth about the history of the Russian Revolution (of 1917) and the development of the USSR (in 1922)! In many ways the work of EH Carr (which stretches to many volumes) is a fair ‘Bourgeois’ analysis of this crucial aspect of working-class history, as it covers virtually all the significant areas of 20th century development within the International Communist Movement! His work on the Bolshevik Revolution and the Soviet ‘Planned Economy’ represents a historical tour de force that covers not only ‘Russian’ history but also many of the key developmental issues effecting such countries as China, Korea and Vietnam, as well as those post-1945 countries throughout Eastern Europe that formed the ‘Communist Bloc’. Obviously, in the post-1956 Khrushchev-era fair-minded historians such as EH Carr were forced to ‘insert’ anti-Stalinist lies and disinformation into their work if they wanted it to be published! Most free-thinking individuals can read between the lines in a number of EH Carr’s later works which sometimes differ in part from the glowing approach he adopted pre-1956! On the whole, however, the infrequent and atypical interferences from under-pressure Publishers can be easily seen, duly noticed and discarded as being of no historical worth! EH Carr, writing very much like Antonio Gramsci whilst languishing in an Italian prison – had to write in a pro-Communist code that the average US-controlled censor was not smart enough to catch!

Lenin: Conversation with Clara Zetkin (1920) – Her Recollections! (31.12.2022)
Clara Zetkin was sent by Rosa Luxemburg to set Lenin straight over issues of the rights of women – and the direction and tone of the Revolution in general! Rosa Luxemburg – like many adherents of the failed Second International – disagreed with Lenin and his ‘Third International and suggested the Revolutionary Movement should cooperate with the existing Bourgeois status quo to a greater extent, and back away from the idea of ‘overthrowing’ the capitalist system! In this regard, and when taking these attitudes into account, Rosa Luxemburg sailed very close to the Trotskyite position of collaboration with reaction. Indeed, she would eventually be murdered by one of her former students – a tragic end that reveals the limitations of her attitudes. Below is an English translation of a text originally written in the German language by Clara Zetkin recalling her memories of a number of discussions, she had with Lenin during late 1920 in Moscow as the Russian Civil War was still raging and Lenin (and the Communist Party) were planning the forming of large federal Socialist State as a means to generating the conditions for a better form of military self-defence from attack by the capitalist world. During early 1918, Revolutionary Russia had been invaded by Imperial Germany and six of her Allies, and by the UK, US and twelve of their Allies! This war would last from 1918-1921 and cost the Russian people 10.5 million casualties! Imperial Japan would only abandon Vladivostok during October 1922 – just before the forming of the ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ (USSR) on December 30th, 1922! Meanwhile, far from telling Lenin what to do or think, Clara Zetkin found herself converted by his intelligence and insight and returned to Germany informing all and sundry that Lenin was right, and that Rosa Luxemburg should listen and learn from Lenin! Marxist-Leninist ‘Feminism’ is the only truly ‘Revolutionary’ path for women and is very different to the ‘Bourgeois’ mock-feminism that abounds today! For women to be truly ‘free’ – predatory capitalism must be overthrown completely and there can be no compromise whatsoever on this point! Anyone woman that compromises with capitalism is a traitor to the Revolutionary cause!
Biography: Joseph Stalin on the Founding of the USSR (1922) and the Defeat of Trotskyism! (26.12.2022)
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)
