Of course, a Russian colleague of mine thinks that this story might well be a modern invention designed to denigrate the reputation of modern Russia by referring to a corrupt Soviet past. The point is that the alleged Soviet sleep experiments are nothing but an unscientific and ahistorical myth, designed to keep a poorly educated Western workforce in a state of fear and opposition against the very Socialist ideology that would free it from the horror of capitalist oppression.
The Soviets – whether local, regional, national or All-Union – our elected on the basis of universal, equal and direct suffrage, by secret ballot.
The Soviet Union was a Socialist State seeking to evolve society beyond its feudal and capitalist limitations, and into an advanced Communist System where class, religion and State would no longer be required for the maintenance of an optimum human society.
In the meantime, the BBC, as part of the bourgeois media system, will continue in its mission to disinform the British working class, and prevent it from uniting in the name of its own class interests. The British working class should unite together and initiate its own Communist Revolution so the British people can share in the success of Scientific Socialism, and transform the BBC into the ‘Peoples’ Broadcasting Corporation’ (PBC), apologise to the peoples of Russia and China, and work for the positive establishment of Socialism throughout the world!
