This is all part of what happens within ethnic Chinese homes and living spaces. Outside, there will be martial arts performances which will include lion, dragon and phoenix dances to bring good look – whilst families meet to celebrate together! In China there is now a two-week holiday with various traditional rituals on certain days! As China moves toward ‘Socialism’ – people are changing and becoming more modern and scientifically minded – and this leads to knew interpretations of reality and historical processes! This is a good thing as dangerous superstitions are abandoned, traditions are clarified and made safe and easily shareable, and Chinese people develop ‘Internationalist’ attitudes and tendencies!
Today, the US has manipulated one Neo-Nazi regime after another into power throughout Eastern Europe as a means to surround Russia’s Western border with hostile and pro-US countries all vying to have NATO move into their backyards and shift US-controlled troops right up to the borders of Russia (and beyond)! This is why – during the Xmas celebrations for 2022 – the Catholic-controlled country of Latvia (which now defines the attitude of ‘opposing’ Neo-Nazism and fascism as being an ‘outdated’ Soviet-era approach toward WWII) – openly exhibited Nazi-German ‘Swastika’ as festive lights for the children and the general population to enjoy whilst the country awaited the supposed commemoration of the birth of Christ – to an absolute ‘silence’ from the Vatican and most countries around the world! The particular example of Nazi German Swastika admiration (recorded above) was filmed in the ‘Lielvarde’ area of Latvia – situated in the (north-central) Vidzeme region! Like Ukrainians, Estonians and Lithuanians visiting our island nation (armed with their ‘Golden Visas’) of the UK – which prides itself upon the fact it historically ‘resisted’ the German Nazism these Eastern European countries now embrace – believe that it is their pro-Hitler Latvian laws that should run throughout our land! When we are confronted with these modern fascists – we hold the Red Flag of freedom ‘higher’ – and agree with every bullet the modern Russian Army fires at these disgraces for human-beings!
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!
From the end of December, 2022, Private Soldiers, NCOs and Commissioned Officers fighting in the Russian Armed Forces (primarily at the ‘Front’ during the ‘Special Military Operation’ in Donbass) became ‘eligible’ to receive this distinction!
This decision was taken after considering how respected and popular the ‘Soviet Order of the Red Star’ had been throughout the Red Army, and the use of its symbolism suggests a firm historical link between the past and the present with regard to Russia’s eternal fight against fascism!
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!
We must forge a ‘New’ Red Arny of many different modern and up to date components – and not just in the conventional military sense – to face down this threat of congealed and festering fascism which is spreading and gestating throughout the US controlled internet! We must take away this sense of ‘comfort’ and ‘safety’ that these criminals and child-molesters feel they now possess simply because of the favour the bourgeoisie currently extends in their direction! Fascists must never be allowed to take political power again – and we must suffocate the power they now have out of their collective lungs! Do not let them breath, speak or act with any ease! This way the ‘New’ Red Army will rain devastation down upon the heads of the fascist in yet a new way to that applied during the 1940s! Fighting fascism is the duty of every true Communist!
