The average Russian worker had never experienced such good times! Men and women were equal in every field, and children’s rights were recognised and respected! All adults over 18 years old could vote, education was free for all and truly universal! Industrial output and agricultural were booming as the Soviet State combined full employment together with scientific organisation, planning and advanced technology! Non-Europeans (including the Chinese and Koreans amongst many others, including Africans and African-Americans) frequented the schools, factories, medical centres and sporting facilitates! The Workers and Peasant Red Army employed men and women and explored many and different ways of projecting the USSR. The population expressed their gratitude and support by continuously ‘voting’ Joseph Stalin into Office (yes, the Soviet population participated in numerous and many democratic elections)!
The second story, if not entirely fabricated, serves as an excellent example of US (Eurocentric) racism, and exhibits a clear manifestation of ‘anti-intellectualism’ when warning the US working-class NEVER to develop any sense of unity or international collectivity with the working-class of China! If that were to happen, then an international unity between the working-class of China and the working-class of America would completely ‘undermine’ the bourgeois control of the US! If the collective working-class of America simply ended its ‘false consciousness’ and stopped its voluntary enslavement to the ‘White’ bourgeoisie – then a Socialist Revolution could well happen across North America! The bourgeois could be disempowered and removed from power as the working-class seize the means of production and hold individual bourgeois politicians accountable for the many crimes they have committed around the world using the US military and US economic terrorism! The racist aspect of this section of ‘60 Minutes’ assumes that the Communist Party of China (CPC) – which has done far more than any other government in its short historical existence to relieve poverty in the world – is as ‘stupid’ as the US bourgeois system and the average US citizen produced by this anti-intellectual aberration! The whole notion that a White American working for the ‘Pentagon’ is stupid enough to become entangled by a ‘Han’ Chinese National (supposedly working as an ‘Intelligence Officer’) and then voluntarily compromise his own freedom and safety (within the American system) by divulging trade secrets to a country that the US government continuously refers to as an ‘enemy’ – even though no state of war exists between the two countries (despite intense US provocations over Taiwan) – is beyond belief!
Two lost videos of a great country in mourning for one of the greatest working-class leaders the International working-class has ever possessed! The coffin of
This attitude is a total inversion of Marxist-Leninism! Indeed, it is a victory for a) predatory capitalism, and b) Trotskyism! What I find interesting is why modern ‘Russian’ adherents to Marxist-Leninism still insist on preferring a ‘Russo-centric’ (‘nationalist’) view of reality? Infiltrating ‘nationalism’ is one of the greatest betrayals of Marxist-Leninism and has been so successful outside of China that most European ‘Leftists’ take it for granted and see it as normal! Most post-1991 so-called ‘Communist Parties’ have abandoned ‘Internationalism’ as if such a pan-working-class attitude was an ideological mistake made by Lenin! The USSR is NOT a place but a concept.

During times of Austerity, the middle and upper classes ensure their dominance of society by withdrawing services and financial help from the ordinary people (who
