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!
JV Stalin: Reply to Ukrainian Comrades in the Rear and At the Front! Pravda 213 – 13.12.1917! (15.1.2023)
I think that there are some similar sets which include books (or ‘texts’) after 1934 – but I do not possess any of these sets. I have always thought that JV Stalin’s leadership skills of the USSR 1936-1945 would be of the utmost interest for the working-class! From 1936-1939 the USSR coordinated the International Working-Class in its fight against the Catholic-backed ‘Fascist’ uprising in Spain! During the late 1930s the Soviet Red Army not only took on a ‘Fascist’ Finnish Army (an enemy encouraged by Hitler and the capitalist West) – and whilst doing this also inflicted consecutive military defeats upon some of the best Units the Imperial Japanese Army had to offer (during 1938 on the Manchurian-Korean border – and during 1939 on the Manchurian-Mongolian border). What follows, however, involves a report made by JV Stalin during December, 1917, when the Catholic Church (and capitalist West) was deliberately causing derision primarily throughout Western Ukraine – interpreting the presence of an ‘Internationalist’ Soviet Army (which included Ukrainian volunteers) as being merely a ‘Russian Army’ pursuing Bourgeois ‘Nationalist’ aims of conquering land and subjugating populations! As a text, it is like a script exactly describing what is happening in the Ukraine today! Of course, there is a ‘Russian Army’ today – but it is coming to the aid of those Ukrainians in the ‘East’ of that country who want nothing to do with the US-backed Neo-Nazi regime headquartered in the West of Ukraine!
100th Anniversary of the Founding of the USSR (1922-2022)! Two Articles by VI Lenin! (30.12.2022)
A few years ago, I acquired a Two Volume Set entitled the Essentials of VI Lenin (1947) from Comrades in the ‘New Communist Party’ (NCP) in London. The NCP was busy embracing the North Korean ideology of ‘Juche’ and were happy to jettison overt ideological works pertaining to the USSR – such as those involving Lenin and Stalin. Their loss was my gain (although a modest amount of money did change hands) and I acquired the full Stalin Collection and a very good (and quite ‘rare’) Two Volume Edition of Lenin – published at a time when the USSR was still riding high following its 1945 Victories over Naxi Germany and Imperial Japan – and before the US Cold War had fully kicked in – (falsely equating as it did the USSR with Nazi Germany). A point to remember is that the Nazi Germans (and their allies – which included the Vatican) murdered around 41 million Soviet men, women and children – far more than officially died in the ‘Holocaust’ (although at least in-part, the Nazi Germans carried-out some of the ‘Holocaust’ killings whilst occupying Soviet soil). The USSR, of course, betrayed Lenin and Stalin through the behaviour of Nikita Khrushchev in 1956 – a known coward who fled the fighting in the Ukraine during 1941 to save his own skin! The USSR as founded in 1922 must be applauded for the working-class achievement that it was, and which it remains! We must strive to keep its memory alive by correctly telling its story! Onward Comrades!
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)
