The Memory of Vladimir Lenin was Honoured in Donetsk! (15.2.2016)

“The strength of Vladimir Lenin and his superiority over political opponents lay in versatility. A broad outlook, which was based on the Marxist method of cognition, allowed him to emerge victorious in theoretical battles every time. He substantiated the inevitability of the decomposition of the peasant community, and, consequently, the utopian nature of the populist idea of ​​building Socialism on its basis. He laid the foundation for Party building, and with it the victory over the Menshevik wing of Russian Social Democracy. The works of the Bolshevik leader became the most important stage in the preparation of the Socialist Revolution.”

De-Communization and De-Nazification in Equal Measure? What is Putin Doing in the Ukraine?

The Red Flag is flying but of course, the modern Russian Military flies this routinely as a ‘battle honour’ and it does not necessarily equate to any political ideology. Eastern Ukraine is not being ‘freed’ in the name of ‘Socialism’ but rather in the name of bland liberal democracy and consumer-led capitalism! In the end, although US-backed Neo-Nazism might be defeated – US-controlled capitalism will still continue in its place – which was, after-all, the intention of the Americans all along! What is interesting is that Russian Forces have been ‘removing’ Monuments dedicated to the Soviet Red Army during WWII under the guise of ‘protecting’ these structures! The thinking being that following ‘discussions’ after the war – a decision will be made as to what will happen to these once sacred objects! It seems to me that there is just as much of a ‘Communication’ going on as a ‘De-Nazification’ – and I am beginning to wonder whether Putin is applying the dictate of US anti-intellectualism that there is no difference between ‘Marxist-Leninism’ and ‘Hitlerism’! Of course, although Hitler inflicted around 41 million casualties upon the Soviets between 1941-1945 – the US Military (according to a recent report) – since 1945-present has inflicted between 20-30 million casualties upon the peoples of the world in pursuit of its socio-economic and military values!  It all seems to be a numbers game!
