NATO Terrorism in Europe: Operation Gladio (1945-1990)

Operation Gladio was a US-sponsored and NATO-controlled para-military (terrorist) project designed to keep standing armies of far-right guerilla fighters in place throughout the many countries of Western Europe. This NATO terrorist policy was used against local people (to keep them from embracing Socialism), and to fight any theoretical  invasion of Western Europe by the Soviet Union. These right-wing terrorist groups murdered hundreds of people between 1945 and 1990 – in an attempt to blame far-left groups. The problem was that nobody believed that far-left groups were carry-out these terrorist attacks (as Karl Marx and Lenin had rejected the use of terrorism). I suspect the ‘Madan’ neo-Nazi regime in the Western Ukraine is comprised of a remnant of one of these far-right cells nurtured to the position of full national governance by the US Government (under Barack Obama). Operation Gladio was exposed in 1990 as the Soviet Union was beginning to fall apart under the management of the traitor Gorbachev. The USSR never used terrorism in the West – but the mainstream media – colluding as it does with the Bourgeois State – presented every terrorist outrage committed by these rightwing thugs as originating in the USSR. Furthermore, the nature and design of these ‘false flag’ attacks appear identical to terrorist attacks that occur across the world today, an uncomfortable fact that has led many to speculate that national governments orchestrate terrorist attacks (blaming these terrorist outrages upon the enemy of the moment), as a means to inspire anger and hatred in the general population toward a particular (and usually ‘innocent’ third party).

The Fabricated Zinoniev Letter – How the British Establishment Brought-Down the 1924 Labour Party

Winston Churchill and His Close Personal Friend Major Desmond Morton

In the 1930’s, the conservative (bourgeois) establishment in the UK made much of Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. Indeed, the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph continued to support Hitler’s policies and military adventures right up until the eve of war between the UK and Nazi Germany, whilst Winston Churchill made glowing written comments about Hitler, and the British royal family (including Queen Elizabeth II) were photographed making straight-armed (fascist) salutes! The rightwing proclivities of the British middle and upper classes are quite clear for all to see, and are active today in the British State’s support for the ‘Madan’ neo-Nazi government, currently active in Western Ukraine. What many are unaware of, however, is that whilst the conservative British establishment harps on about the merits of ‘liberal democracy’, it has historically behaved in a distinctly ‘illiberal’ and ‘non-democratic’ manner on a number of notable occasions.

The ‘minority’ Labour government of 1923 was established with the cooperation of the Liberals – this was the first Labour government and the Liberals only allowed it access to power as a means to discredit and bring-down this working class movement. In this respect, the Liberals were acting in concordance with the Conservatives and the British State. Just ten months later, the Labour Party (under Ramsey MacDonald) lost the October, 1924 General Election to a landslide Tory victory. In November, 1924, a delegation of British trade unions arrived in Moscow, and subsequently published a report stating that its representatives had studied the minutes of the meetings of the Executive Committee of the Comintern and had not found traces of anti-British activity. However, it is believed that the Labour Party was ousted from its tenuous grip on power by a plot perpetuated by White Russians, MI5, MI6, the Daily Mail, the Conservative Party, the Liberal Party, Winston Churchill and Major Desmond Morton (amongst many other colluding individuals in positions of power and influence). This notorious episode in British politics has become known as the ‘Zinoniev Letter’ scandal, but is highly disturbing in its non-democratic and rightwing nature. I am researching from contemporary Russian language sources, but include a short English language video for reference purposes.

Although the Soviet Union was allegedly involved in this plot to incite a Socialist Revolution in the UK (by exporting the idea of armed worker uprisings via the various branches of the Communist Party), very little direct reference is made in Western sources to Soviet thoughts on this matter. Georgy Zinoniev (1883-1936) was the head of the ‘Communist International’ (i.e. ‘Comintern’) during the 1920’s, which served as the coordinating hub for all the Communist Parties of the world. Georgy Zinoniev (originally supported Joseph Stalin against Trotsky’s attempt to bring-down the Soviet System (following Lenin’s death in 1924), but slowly gravitated toward the Trotskyite Insurgency after this date.  This ideological about-face eventually led to his arrest, trial and execution for ‘Treason’ in 1936. However, in September, 1924, the British MI6 stated that one of its operatives (in Latvia) had been handed a letter signed by Georgy Zinoniev on behalf of the Comintern, which was directed toward the Communist Party of Great Britain, and suggested that the Labour Party could be used to incite an armed uprising in the UK. The letter was handed to the British MI5, and subsequently found its way to Ramsey MacDonald – the Labour Prime Minister. However, British Secret Intelligence Services also took matters into their own hands (despite being instructed by the Prime Minister to keep this letter ‘secret’), and distributed copies to the heads of the army and navy, as well as to the rightwing press and various other establishment figures – without the knowledge or consent of the British Labour Prime Minister. The motivation for this underhand (and non-democratic) activity stemmed from the Labour Party’s willingness to recognise the existence of the Soviet Union, and enter into formal trade agreements.

As the Labour Party struggled to hold on to power, the rightwing and racist British newspaper the Daily Mail published the ‘Zinoniev Letter’ under the alarmist headline ‘Civil War Plot by Socialist Masters’ four days before the 1924 General Election (on the 25.10.1924). The Daily Mail falsely stated that if the UK became a Socialist State, it would directly fund the development of the USSR. In the meantime, in the Soviet Union an investigation was underway with Georgy Zinoniev denying any involvement and pointing-out obvious structural and rhetorical errors in the text. The Soviet Government had not issued any orders for such a letter to have been written, and it was proven through investigation that Georgy Zinoniev had not written this letter. Despite Soviet denials, and the fact that Georgy Zinoniev wrote an open letter exposing the fake letter that carried his name, the British press conspired not to publish Zinoniev’s ‘real’ letter until a month after the 1924 General Election. By that time the Tories had won power and had cancelled all previous diplomatic and trade agreements with the USSR, and nobody in the government was listening. In 1925, however, the German Language newspaper entitled ‘Red Flag’ published an article exposing the White Russian emigre named ‘Sergei Druzhilovsky’ (Сергей Дружиловский), who was immediately expelled from Germany. In 1926 he was arrested by the Soviet Border Guards after illegally crossing the Latvian-Soviet border. After an open trial held in Moscow (by the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the USSR) Sergei Druzhilovsky was sentenced to be shot. Soviet sources make it very clear that the ‘Zinoniev Letter’ episode in the UK was the work of intelligence operative Major Desmond Morton, and that in the shadows behind him was the nefarious Winston Churchill.

The original letter was discovered in 1965, resulting in a book-investigation entitled ‘Zinoviev’s Letter’ and written by three journalists of the British newspaper The Sunday Times.  In February, 1968, The Sunday Times published an article stating that photocopies of the original ‘Zinoniev Letter’ had been inexplicably found in the archives of Harvard University. The graphological analysis carried-out by the expert John Conway, suggested that the hand-writing within the ‘letter’ belonged to the British spy Sidney Reilly, who thus also was involved in fabricating the fake letter. Interestingly, Soviet Intelligence lured Sidney Reilly into the USSR in 1925, under the pretension of him contacting a fictitious anti-Soviet underground movement. Two stories then compete for attention, one is that Sidney Reilly was ‘shot’ for spying, whilst the other story suggests that he changed sides and started spying for the USSR. In the late 1990’s, Robin Cook, Foreign Minister of the Labour Government of Tony Blair, ordered the opening of certain archives. According to these files, the Zinoniev Letter was transferred to the Riga residence (in Latvia) by a Russian emigrant from Berlin, who earned money by creating such fakes. The research was conducted by Dr. Jill Bennett, and although placating the British establishment (whilst ‘hinting’ at impropriety), it nevertheless falsely claims that the exact identity of the original forger cannot be known. This demonstrates how the Labour Party had moved to the right, and how it was willing to ‘ignore’ the Soviet research on this subject.

Perhaps a lasting testimony to the corruption of the bourgeois British State and the Conservative Party, lies in the Labour Party’s rejection of true Socialism, and the 1925 pogrom aimed at the 12 leading Members of the Communist Party of Great Britain by the Tories, all of whom were put on trial and found guilty of seditious libel and incitement to mutiny – before being sentenced to various prison terms. All this was allowed to happen due to the anti-Socialist (and anti-Russian) atmosphere created in the UK by the fake ‘Zinoniev Letter’.

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Of course, this entire episode is bizarre and indicative of an inverted bourgeois mind-set. Why would a letter addressed to the headquarters of the CPGB situated in London, be ‘discovered’ in Latvia? Logic dictates that if it was genuine, it would have been openly published by the Comintern and thereby made public. The Comintern made no secret of its Marxist-Leninist ideology, or the idea of its preference for a world-wide Socialist Revolution. However, such a Revolution arises from indigenous and spontaneous Workers’ Movements, and cannot be imposed ‘from above’ so to speak (as the fake ‘Zinoniev Letter’ and distorting bourgeois rhetoric suggests).

100th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution – Chinese Delegation Welcomed in Russia!

(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)

Russia was the birthplace of the October Revolution led by Lenin, and can be legitimately considered the home of the Socialist Revolution – (with the Soviet Union) being a great Revolutionary mentor. The victory of the October Revolution declared to the world that the Socialist System had transitioned from being an advanced theory (on paper) and into a practical reality, that initiated a ‘new era’ in human history.

November 7th, 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the victory of the October Revolution. This rare and historic opportunity happens only once in a hundred years, and so Star Fire Travel organized the ‘100th Anniversary of the October Revolution: Memory, Reconciliation and Hope trip’ – as the theme of this trip to (Moscow) Russia, is that of returning to the homeland of the October Revolution, to cherish the memory of Lenin, and recognise the brilliant achievements of the October Revolution.

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

This delegation from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was officially invited to Russia by the Communist Party of Russia, to take part in a march in memory of the October Revolution, with a chance to carry Red Flags (of differing designs), and hold-up placards of Lenin, Stalin, Che Guevara and Mao Zedong. As this was a very special events, the PRC delegation photographed and filmed extensively, with the intention of creating an educational documentary for release in China. People came from all over the world, and we were all treated with the utmost respect by the Russian people. Whilst on the march, we all joined together to sing the ‘Internationale’!

Rosa Luxemberg’s Bourgeois Dialectical Errors

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

SPD Party School, Berlin (1907): Rosa Luxemburg ( standing left), Wilhelm Pieck (seated to right of Luxemburg) and Friedrich Ebert (third row back on left-hand side of right row)

Rosa Luxemberg (1871-1919) was murdered on the orders of her former student – Friedrich Ebert. Friedrich Ebert had become the first President of the Weimar Republic following Imperial Germany’s defeat at the end of WW1, and in so doing, aligned himself with the rightwing of German politics. Prior to its defeat against the UK in November of 1918, Imperial Germany had deployed troops into Revolutionary Russia (alongside the USA, UK and 11 other countries), with the objective of destroying the Bolshevik Movement, and capturing or killing its leaders. It is a bitter irony that whilst British and German troops continued to follow orders and kill one another in France, a completely different set of orders (issued by exactly the same military and political authorities), demanded that British and German troops fought on the same side in an international effort to crush Soviet Socialism. Although Rosa Luxemberg opposed Germany’s participation in WW1, she remained unusually ‘quiet’ about German troops invading and attempting to destroy Revolutionary Russia in 1918.

The problem regarding Rosa Luxemberg appears to stem from her misreading of Marx and Engels, and her ‘rigid’ alignment with the Second ‘Socialist’ International which advocated (to a certain degree) a co-operation between Socialist Revolutionary forces and the existing Bourgeois State. In this regard, Rosa Luxemberg’s ideas were more ‘bourgeois’ friendly, than Socialist Revolutionary, as she spoke with the attitude of a fully empowered bourgeois individual. Rosa Luxemberg mistakenly assumed that the oppressed Working Class possessed the same bourgeois education and access to social and political institutions that she did, and that all the Working Class had to do was to ‘realise’ this apparently ‘hidden’ or ‘latent’ power. Of course, such mistaken ideas as this have more in-common with bourgeois ‘mysticism’ and ‘religion’, than with the historical materialism of Karl Marx, and firmly demonstrates Rosa Luxemberg’s thoroughly ‘bourgeois’ approach to politics. Although a woman, Rosa Luxemberg behaved with a typical (and ‘dictatorial’) paternalistic attitude. The fact that she was eventually murdered by one of her ‘bourgeois’ students only serves to highlight the reality of this interpretation.

Rosa Luxemberg hated Lenin and despised his Bolshevik Movement. Rosa Luxemberg also detested the Russian Revolution of 1917, and it is true to say that she dedicated her political activity to a continuous effort of undermining its success and hard-established power-base. Rosa Luxemberg, preempting Trotsky’s eventual treachery, utilised a corrupting bourgeois rhetoric designed to dominate and mislead the oppressed Working Class at the point of contact. One example of this rhetoric can be found in Rosa Luxemberg’s Neue Zeit Journal article of July, 1904, within which she denounces Lenin’s insistence of what she termed ‘ultra-centralism’. Working from her liberal, bourgeois ideals, Rosa Luxemberg misinterpreted Lenin’s concept of proletariat ‘centralised democracy’, with that of bourgeois bureaucracy and bourgeois dictatorship. In many ways, Rosa Luxemberg’s bourgeois attitudes laid the theoretical foundation of what would become ‘Trotskyism’, and provided the US with an ideological method to ‘criticise’ the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Rosa Luxemberg was a bourgeois reactionary exercising pretensions of leftwing revolutionary activity. Her opposition to the Bolsheviks demonstrated not an advanced proletariat mind-set at work, but rather that of a privileged ‘White’ middle class woman ‘playing’ at being a Socialist Revolutionary’. In the same article there is evidence that Rosa Luxemberg had thoroughly ‘ingested’ anti-Russian, or anti-Slavic German attitudes, as she again misinterpreted Lenin’s ‘internationalist’ and ‘proletariat’ attitude as being typically ‘Russian’ in nature, referring to Lenin as expressing ‘Russian absolutism’. Writing as she was from a distinctly ‘bourgeois’ perspective, it is laughable that Rosa Luxemberg accused Lenin of turning the revolutionary struggle upon its head! When Lenin and the Bolsheviks finally came to power, Rosa Luxemberg’s opinions were thoroughly discredited, but they still have a certain currency amongst the Trotskyite left, or those feminists who mistake middle class privilege for female emancipation.

Tate Modern: Red Star Over Russia (19.11.2017)

DSC_1404

Many, if not all Western exhibitions purporting to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution, are merely excuses for the prevailing bourgeois, capitalist system to continue to attack and denigrate the reputation of the Soviet Union, as a means to discredit Marxist-Leninism, and influence the working class away from positively relating to Soviet (Bolshevik) Socialism. It is perhaps ironic that the Tate Modern, a complex of art galleries constructed within an old (and huge) Central London factory, should host such a poorly conceived, badly organised and thoroughly ‘revisionist’ exhibition designed to convey not only the prevailing bourgeois negative view of the Soviet Union, but compounds this error by dedicating an entire room to the criminal Leon Trotsky! As the bourgeoisie has a tendency to ‘fetishize’ Trotsky, this exhibition focuses upon the removal of his image from all Soviet documentation, and completely ignores Trotsky’s open collaboration fascist Italy, fascist Spain, fascist Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany throughout the 1930s! Furthermore, this exhibition (based upon the collection of Soviet propaganda posters formerly owned by the British Trotskyite David King), has a number of historical facts incorrect. The 1905 Revolution had nothing to do with the Bolsheviks, and the February Revolution of 1917 also had nothing to do with Lenin. Stalin died in 1953 and not 1955, and Leon Trotsky was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1929 and not 1927! Lenin is treated as a potential criminal, whilst Stalin is treated as an actual criminal. Lenin disagreed with Trotsky but thought that he could be reformed through labour – but Trotsky always remained a bourgeois leftist and self-serving careerist. Whilst dedicating the last 11 years of his life to trying to destroy Lenin’s masterpiece creation of the Soviet Union – the Tate Modern commentary laughingly insists that Trotsky was Lenin’s greatest supporter! I have photographed a number of interesting Soviet posters because their original purpose was to express an entirely ‘new’ and ‘proletariat’ way of viewing the world, but I reject the Trotskyite viewpoints of David King, and the ludicrous bourgeois interpretation of events as conveyed by the Tate Modern. Nothing positive is said about the Soviet Union, and just as Trotsky’s dalliance with world fascism is ignored, so too is the Soviet Sacrifice in its war with, and subsequent victory over Nazi Germany (where the USSR lost between 27-40 million men, women and children killed and wounded). David King erroneously makes much of police photographs of suspected and/or convicted criminals which he gathered from the USSR, but the fact remains that if capitalism ever collapsed in the West, there would be millions of similar photographs ‘liberated’ from the bourgeois police archives!

RED STAR OVER RUSSIA A REVOLUTION IN VISUAL CULTURE 1905–55

A dramatic visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union from 1905 to the death of Stalin – seen through the eyes of artists, designers and photographers

2017 marks the centenary of the October Revolution. Rebellion brought hope, chaos, heroism and tragedy as the Russian Empire became the Soviet Union, endured revolutions, civil war, famine, dictatorship and Nazi invasion. A new visual culture arose and transformed the fabric of everyday life.

The core of this exhibition comes from the extraordinary collection of photographer and graphic designer David King (1943–2016). He started his collection of over 250,000 items relating to this period while working for The Sunday Times Magazine in the 1970s. The collection was acquired by Tate in 2016.

This show is an opportunity to see the rare propaganda posters, prints and photographs collected by King – some bearing traces of state censorship. Including work by El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dmitri Moor, Aleksandr Deineka, Nina Vatolina and Yevgeny Khaldei, it is a thrilling journey through a momentous period in world history.

The Apathetic British Working Class and the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution (2017)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The celebrations regarding the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution that brought Lenin and the (Communist) Bolsheviks to power in 1917, have been ‘muted’ in the UK to say the least. The British working class, compromised and infiltrated as it is by bourgeois Trotskyism, has remained generally apathetic in its recognition and praise for Lenin, with spontaneous (and even ‘planned’) celebrations in favour of Communism, and protests against the oppressive and unjust nature of capitalism, remaining virtually non-existent. The British working class has allowed the ruling bourgeoisie to set the agenda, and has remained ‘quiet’ whilst that bourgeoisie denigrates the memory of the Russian Revolution, suggesting in its usual self-serving middle class manner, that there was something ‘morally’ and ‘historically’ wrong about the Communist Revolution that overthrew its power-base in 1917, and gave the international working class hope. Of course, parody and disinformation from the (bourgeois) rightwing is to be expected, but exactly the same fallacious arguments are also employed by the (bourgeois) left! The British working class, as representatives of the industrialised proletariat, should be setting an entirely ‘positive’ agenda for the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Russian October Revolution, and be agitating against any and all bourgeois attempts at stealing proletariat history, and misconstruing that history for its own nefarious ends. The Russian October Revolution was one of the greatest and most important world events in working class history! Bourgeois attitudes are irrelevant to this fact, simply because the Russian Revolution marks the transcendence of Bourgeois domination and oppression. However, if the British working class does not adequately stand-up for itself, the bourgeoisie will use every deceptive tactic it can to sully the good reputation of the Russian Revolution, and dismiss any relevance it would otherwise have for the working class. The bourgeoisie limits the memory of the Russian Revolution to its broadsheets and its museums – as if it was an event of limited historical import, with no relevance to the modern era. The British working class should stop its association with the corrupting bourgeois ideology of Trotsky, and take its rightful historical place in the world proletariat movement of Marxist-Leninism.

Wealthy US (UCLA) Basketball Players Caught Shoplifting in China!

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

According to both US and China news sources – three wealthy UCLA basketball players were recently caught red-handed – shoplifting goods (that they could have easily afforded) from exclusive shops situated near their hotel in Hangzhou. The three basketball players have admitted their crimes both in China and in the US. They were confined to their hotel rooms by Chinese police whilst the investigation unfolded (which included CCTV footage). If they had been Chinese citizens, they would have been held in jail awaiting sentencing. The jail-term for shoplifting in China is ten years imprisonment. However, according to Chinese and US news sources, President Xi Jinping authorised (on compassionate grounds) the release (and return to the US) of the three young men concerned. Of course, President Trump has implied that his action freed these three men in a tweet:

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The disrespect of another country’s law and culture exhibited by these three privileged individuals might be described as ‘typical’ for Americans. These three young men, irrespective of their ethnic identities, whilst visiting China behaved in a manner typical of that associated with ‘White’ imperialism. The fact that these ‘criminals’ have been treated with the utmost respect and concern by the Chinese people and the Chinese government, has wrong footed both White racists and Black nationalists in the West – whose anti-China rhetoric makes even less sense than normal. The People’s Republic of China supplies all the needs of the Chinese people (and foreigners visiting China), so that the barbaric crime of ‘stealing’ from one another is neither required or permitted. Communist China also opposes all kinds of racism and supports all dialectically correct freedom movements. For decades the Western imperialist powers ‘stole’ from the Chinese people – please do not visit our country and continue this historical crime. Communist China welcomes all the people of world in equality and friendship.

Winston Churchill’s Support for Adolf Hitler (1935)

The British Winston Churchill is well-known for his racist opinions and anti-Socialist attitudes. Despite despising the British working class, Churchill would call upon it to sacrifice its lives to defend the UK during WWII, and Britain’s imperial conquests over-seas. The final stab in the back for the British working class, came with Churchill’s opposition to the Labour Party’s plans to introduce a Welfare State and National Health Service as a ‘thank you’ to the demobilised British working class (in 1945). What many do not know is that like the British royal family of the 1930’s, Winston Churchill fully admired Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist regime – implying that the British working class would benefit from a dose of fascism. In his 1935 book entitled ‘Great Contemporaries’ (reprinted unedited in 1937), Winston Churchill argues that:

‘(Adolf Hitler is) a genius born of the miseries of Germany. We may yet live to see Hitler a gentlier figure in a happier age.’

Winston Churchill: Great Contemporaries (1935)

In 1936, hundreds of thousands of British working class people (inspired by the Communist Party of Great Britain, but not the Labour Party of the day) stopped the fascist Oswald Mosley and his ‘Blackshirts’ during the Battle of Cable Street (in East London). An incensed Winston Churchill, writing as he was for the middle class elite, had his book re-published in 1937, so that the British nation (and its elite) could read yet again his glowing words about Adolf Hitler.

Alexander Pichushkin – Russia’s First ‘Capitalist’ Mass Murderer

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Russian language sources report that Alexander Pichushkin (Алекса́ндр Пичу́шкин) was born in the Soviet Union in 1974. His killing spree began with a single murder in 1992 – and then he did not commit another murder until 2001. The bulk of his victims (at least 48 killed and 3 wounded) happened between 2001 and 2006, Alexander Pichushkin claims that he murdered at least 63 people – but the Russian Authorities have not been able to confirm the details of these extra 10 victims. Alexander Pichushkin was most active between 2005 and 2006, where he is said to have been trying to kill one person for every square on a chessboard (this is also the time when he stopped deliberately ‘hiding’ the bodies of his victims). He would lure his victims into Bitsevsky Park – situated southwest of Moscow – and smash-in the back of their skulls with a hammer. He would then place a broken vodka bottle in the wound. Between 2001 and 2005 the local sewage works reported a constant stream of dead bodies being found in the water – some 29 in number. However, at the time the police did not suspect a serial killer. It must also be noted that there has never been found any evidence to support Alexander Pichushkin’s claim that he killed a fellow student (via strangulation) in 1992, before throwing his body down a well.

As usual, the English language wikipedia page presents a mixture of fact and fiction about this case. Completely excluded from the narrative is the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and the complete chaos and suffering that followed in the sudden abolition of the Welfare State and free medical provision (Russian statistics suggests that 5.9 million extra people died in Russia due to these ‘cuts’ between 1991 and 1999). Alexander Pichushkin is supposed to have committed his first murder in the first year of capitalist Russia i.e. 1992). However, his crime spree only really gathered steam in the early to mid 2000’s. As a child, Alexander Pichushkin fell off a swing when he was a young child, with the swing then striking him across the fore-head. He was a quiet child who liked to play chess, but after spending time in hospital due to his head injury, it was found that he could not talk properly and distinguish correctly between ‘sh’ and ‘c’, and had trouble reading these letters. Contrary to the English wikipedia claim that he was ‘bullied’ by other children at school – there is no evidence to support this view within Russian language sources. The Soviet Education System pursued an effective policy of ‘no bullying’, and respect for other human-beings. Alexander Pichushkin  was taken out of mainstream education to receive tailored educational treatment at a special school in the USSR. This move was successful, and Alexander Pichushkin eventually attended vocational college where he trained as a carpenter. It was only after the caring system of Soviet Socialism was replaced with uncaring predatory capitalism that Alexander Pichushkin began to kill. Indeed, many of his victims were the poor and homeless – people the modern ‘capitalist’ police in Russia term ‘anti-social’ – as if these individuals are to blame for the poverty they exist within, rather than the capitalist system that has failed them. Alexander Pichushkin thought that these people had no right exist – and in the adopting of this attitude – he appears to have internalized the outer brutality of the capitalist system.

President Obama – the first African-American President in US history – openly supported the ‘Madan’ neo-Nazi insurgency in Western Ukraine (in 2014) without any shadow of irony. President Obama also voted against a United Nations Resolution ‘banning’ the glorification of neo-Nazism (2014), He also presided over an Administration that saw the ‘White’ police force murder unarmed ‘Black’ people at an incredible rate – and he did nothing. In 2015, the so-called ‘Panama Papers’ were released by a consortium of US billionaires in 2015 – again under the Obama Administration – and funded by George Soros, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Carnegie Foundation. The Panama Papers appear to be a bizarre attempt by Obama to mimic Cold War intrigue, and attack the perceived ‘enemies’ of the United States. Capitalism is corrupt a priori, and the rich hire ‘accountants’ as a means to retain as much of their money as possible, by paying as least tax as possible. This is how people like President Obama and George Soros became rich in the first-place. Tax avoidance is lawful, whilst tax evasion is a crime. The Panama Papers supposedly reveal that many incredibly rich people in the world appear to be perpetuating the illegal act of ‘tax evasion’ through off-shore banking and the use of false front dummy corporations, etc. Of course, all this is being carried-out not so much by the rich people involved, but rather by their accountants and lawyers. Wikileaks has confirmed that the US Government is behind the Panama Papers – and has targeted President Putin (who in fact is not mentioned once in the Panama Papers), and supposedly various members of the Communist Party of China. Both the Kremlin and Beijing have rejected the allegations and termed the Panama Papers ‘fake news’. This entire exercise exposes the shocking lack of education that abounds in the US, where a group of corrupt capitalists can conspire to ‘fabricate’ a tissue of lies that falsely accuses other world leaders of being as ‘corrupt’ as they are themselves! It is almost beyond belief that 50 years ago the US Administration accused its enemies of being ‘Communist’, whereas today they are accused of being ‘capitalist’! Finally, the ‘Panama Papers’ may have been a half-baked attempt at combating Wikileaks – a misconstrued exercise in Obama propaganda that lacks the moral integrity that underlies Wikileaks. At the end of the day, ‘greed’ and ‘self-interest’ are the basis of the capitalist system and it makes no difference when this system is exposed for what it is.
