Russia: Capitalist Baby-Steps Toward ‘Bourgeois’ Freedom of Thought! (6.12.2022)

My view is that if an individual is ‘forced’ to accept an imposed point of view decreed by a government – then a country is ‘fascist’! This is exactly what developed capitalist countries do to their ordinary citizens! The US, UK and EU are prime examples, whilst many former Eastern European members of the USSR are now pursuing Neo-Nazi political pathways – all disguised as ‘Democracy’ and supported by the US! Modern Russia feels that it must ‘relate’ to its Soviet past (I can see this changing overtime) and so although inundated with fascistic modes of totalitarian thought itself (as can be seen through the illiberal attitudes as expressed by ‘Anton Korobkov-Zemlyansky’ and his student friend ‘Stepan Antropov’) – rejects ‘Hitler’ due to the mass-murder and destruction his regime inflicted upon the USSR (which included Russia)!  

The lunacy (and anti-intellectualism) of modern Russia includes the bizarre conspiracy theory that the US is supporting Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine as a means to import homosexuality into Slavic lands (rather than simply projecting ‘hegemony’) and attempting to ‘corrupt’ the idea of Russian Manhood as defined through the fascist ideology of ‘Pan-Slavism’! So, there is nothing ‘suspicious’ about an older (male) lecturer coming to the rescue of a younger (male) student – with a large ‘Z’ painted on his chest…?

The Neo-Nazi Ukrainian Conflict – a Tale of Two Fascisms! (3.12.2022)

Since 1991, the post-Soviet space has been inundated with far-right political ideology and religious extremism – as it is a combination of these two ideological thrusts that the US believed would uproot the ‘Internationalism’ and selfless and caring aspects perpetuated by the ideology of Marxist-Leninism! This is why Russia today is inherently (and disturbingly) racist, sexist, homophobic and highly nationalistic! All these things are present amongst the Russian population – and yet the same population appears collectively to be unable to discern the contradiction that these cultural attributes are ‘fascist’ and directly mirror the equivalent Neo-Nazi attitudes common throughout the Ukraine! In other words, Russians are being asked to fight and die in the Ukraine in an attempt to stamp-out exactly the same far-right ideology that runs rampant in their own country! In reality, this far right ideology was imported into the post-Soviet space by the US between 1991-1999 – after which time Russian leaders started to take control of their own country in a more effective manner. Therefore, there is no ‘Socialism’ within Russia and Russians in general react to the conflict in Ukraine with an unquestioning and thoroughly ‘racist’ nationalist fervour! The point is that as repugnant as modern Russia is, as a nation Russians are fighting the Neo-Nazism the US, UK and EU have financed and armed in the Ukraine. I oppose Russian capitalism just as much as I oppose Ukrainian Neo-Nazism – but as the Russian Armed Forces are currently opposing Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine – I narrowly support that fight.  

The Spectres of ‘Dead’ Ukrainians are Haunting Europe! (26.11.2022)

The mental illness recorded on film above, shows an area whereby well-armed and equipped Ukrainian soldiers were killed in earlier battles with Russian (or ‘Allied’) soldiers – with their fully dressed bodies simply being ‘left’. As a consequence, many have skeletonised whilst remaining in their dying positions. As the nature of war tends to produce dead bodies – it might be convincingly argued that this is to be expected – and this would be correct. These soldiers may well have been killed by bullet or bayonet – or perhaps caught on the very edge of some type of explosive power (as their bodies and equipment are fully intact)! What the Russian cameraman states is that this is a fluid frontline area that has seen much hand-to-hand ‘bayonet’ fighting with its occupation (and ‘control’) changing sides on a regular basis. However, what is also observed is that occupying ‘living’ Ukrainian soldiers occupied these entrenched areas whilst sitting, standing and lying next to the corpses of their Comrades who were killed during earlier battles – and whose bodies were NOT recovered or treated with respect in any way by the Ukrainian Forces still with us! Surely this is yet another example of the ‘mental illness’ that the capitalist system has ‘normalised’ and serves as the water the Bourgeoisie take great pleasure in making us all swim within!

Email: Why I Can’t Hear Wagner! (20.11.2022) 

From what I have seen whilst mixing with the Russian people via Telegram, many of them hold EXACTLY the same racist, homophobic and misogynist viewpoints as their Ukrainian counterparts – but just happen to be on the other side! There is no ‘Internationalism’ and the average Russian generally hates non-Russians. This is the damage done by just 31-years of capitalist indoctrination. The Wagner Group is named after a Neo-Nazi figure-head – whilst the badge of the Wagner Group usually depicts a ‘skull’ – similar to those used by the Hitlerite SS Units (particularly the ‘Deaths-Head’ Units)! Recently, the Wagner Group murdered a prisoner using a sledgehammer to the head (all filmed and uploaded) and Putin had the head of RT (a woman) go on air and ‘justify’ the murder! We certainly are down the rabbit hole on this one! Supporting the Russia fight against Ukrainian Neo-Nazism does not (and should not) equate to an automatic support for Russia Neo-Nazi (and Neo-Fascist) attitudes! I suspect the Trotskyites are loving this as it is all unfolding to Trotsky’s dream – a point little expressed by the Left (if we can still call it that)! 

A ‘Red’ Remembrance Day! (12.11.2022)

In 1956 – the USSR was corrupted by Khrushchev’s corruption – and the Revolution lost its essential Marxist-Leninist character! Russia has been dealing with loss ever since the Russian Socialist Revolution of 1917! Today, many ordinary Russians hold right-wing and far-right viewpoints – believing that the West is attempting to corrupt the pure ‘White’ Russian character with ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘homosexuality’! It is perhaps one of the greatest ironies that these ideas of social organisation and tolerance toward ‘difference’ actually originated within the Soviet Union and spread to the West – permanently effecting Western cultural development forever! Our grandfathers and great grandfathers fought in WWI and WWII – and we are very proud of them!
