20 November 2012. The Coat of Arms of the USSR… “Workers of the World, Unite!” Socialism’s Death has been Greatly Exaggerated

______________________________

This year, the trend worldwide has been leftwards, politically. For all the ballyhoo over a “close election”, Willard Romney got creamed. Remember, the oligarchs have the money to buy favourable coverage from the Corporate Media. In short, the people want socialism, they’ve had enough of “trickle upon” economics… for only one thing flows downwards, doesn’t it?

19 August 2011. Vladimir Usov, Ilya Krichevsky, and Dmitri Komar… The Three Young Men at the Barricades… Вечная память! Memory Eternal!

The coup in 1991 still elicits bitter and mixed reactions… as for me, I believe that the USSR “had” to try capitalism. That is, people had nothing to compare socialism to. It was taking one step back in the present to go two steps forward in future, as Vladimir Ilyich said. Today, people in Russia say, “They lied to us about communism, but they told us the truth about capitalism”. That’s why a new Social Democratic USSR is going to rise again… Russians now know about the corrosive lies of unbridled Neoliberal laissez-faire capitalism first-hand. Somehow, I don’t think that Michele Bachmann was thinking of that when she spoke of the “rise of the Soviet Union”… boy oh boy, is the new USSR gonna put a true fright into the rightwingers… and to think that I’ll probably live to see it… hoo boy! Pray for the souls of Vladimir Usov, Ilya Krichevsky, and Dmitri Komar… without their sacrifice, without the present interregnum, there wouldn’t be a rebirth of a new and more vigorous USSR. Without this, the USSR would have degenerated much as the USA has… reflect on that. Pray for their souls… toast their memories… their spilt blood was not shed in vain…

11 July 2011. “Socialism is Good!” The Ordinary Folks of Gomel Oblast Say So!

Editor’s Foreword:

I’m sick n’ tired of hearing the Corporate Media‘s rants against Byelorussia… I don’t know who’s worse… the New York Times or Fox News… neither one tells the truth about this socialist state. They have an agenda, folks… so, look at the reality, not the crook news reports. Here are the people of Gomel Oblast… doctors, kolkhozniki, pharmacists, kids, co-op managers, grannies… the same as everywhere else. Reflect on this… the Internationalist Democrats and Neocon Republicans would bomb them without mercy to install a lickspittle Neoliberal Free Market junta, if they could. THAT speaks volumes about the morality of present American society, kids… none of it good.

Editor’s Afterword:

The people of Byelorussia have a modest sufficiency. They don’t have all the “things” that suburban Americans take for granted, but there are other in life besides material objects. Byelorussians approve of socialism, and they want it to continue. Why? They saw the chaos that capitalism injected into Russia and the Ukraine, and they want no part of that, thank you very much. Ponder this… America deliberately introduced chaos into Russia and the Ukraine through its lickspittles Gaidar, Chubais, Kuchma, and Yushchenko. Russia has mostly shaken off American capitalist chaos, and the Ukraine is in the process of doing so. Byelorussia never got involved in this… which has led to it being blackballed by Neoliberal Free Marketeers, who want to topple the socialist government of Byelorussia. Why is it that Neoliberals hate socialism with a passion, especially socialism that works? I hate to tell them this, but the USA was strongest under the socialist New Deal of FDR… it’s never been as strong (relatively speaking) since.

I’d advise po-nashemu people to have nothing to do with the Republican Party… they’re nativists who hate our ethos, our religion, and our culture. We’re inferiors in their view, fit only to be lectured and led. Get with it, guys, look at the images! It looks like your mom and pop, baba and dede, and everybody else in the old ethnic neighbourhood. Do you want to stand tall with them, or, do you want to suck up to the Republican Born-Again kooks? Is that really a question?
