Nikita Khrushchev held a speech in 1956 where he blamed Stalin for killing millions of people. He provided no documentation of the state and no proof of budget.
Everyone believed him and all demogogues and populists and propaganda ghouls out there have since proudly declared Stalin as one of the greatest genocidal tyrants in history of the world.
No state ever kills people without a budget and a documentation. Just doesn’t compute.
The other side of this coin is very interesting. From 1917 to 1922 Russia was devastated by a horrible Civil war which destroyed a country which before 1917 didn’t really have any modern economy or industry compared to western Europe.
From 1922 to 1926 there were lots of political conflicts and tugs of war within the newly emerging Soviet federation. Russia was still devastated, socially, economically, industrially, politically and genomically, as were the other Soviet states.
Yet, from 1926 to 1941, in only 15 years, Stalin created the strongest and most advanced economy, industry and scientific academia, in the world. It was powerful enough to defeat the whole of Europe in ww2 and then challenge the Pentagon empire for another 45 years.
We have been consistently told that the Soviet technology having lacked behind the western, when it was simply different.
On those foundations, when Pentagon had again destroyed Russia through ’91 to ’99 – using its agengts Gorbachov and Yeltsin – it rebuilt itself in less than a decade, based on the same foundations that Stalin laid out, and again is the second most influential state on the geopolitical stage.
Something doesn’t compute here. Therefore I concur with the great historian Robert Faurisson when he says regarding “the Nazi Holocaust” – Show me the budget, show me the documentation (of the state or bureaucracy).
Until proven guilty, Stalin is not guilty. Unless of course if you cannot believe in his innocence, then propaganda prevails.
On a last note, rebuilding a block of almost twenty states, in only fifteen years, compared to the history of our current times for example the progress from the crash of 2008 until now, merits at least a token of admiration.
