p346------------------------------

In March 1919, Moscow launched a campaign to expose as
fraudulent the relics of saints. According to the Orthodox faith,
the bodies of saints do not decompose after death. Russian churches
& monasteries displayed elaborate coffins said to contain perfectly
preserved remains of saints. When opened on orders of the regime,
they turned out to contain either bare skeletons or dummies. These
disclosures damaged the prestige of the church among the better
educated. On simple people they seemed to have produced the
opposite effect, reinforcing their faith by giving rise to tales of
wonderful mysteries. "Baryshnia", an old peasant explained to an
American visitor, "our holy saints disappeared to heaven &
substituted rags & straw for their relics when they found that their
tombs were to be desecrated by nonbelievers. it was a great miracle."

[--
This is an absolutely brilliant example of how stupid pee-pole can become with
religious mumbo jumbo. But, yet again, Miranians did even better: they could
see their Imam's ass on the moon! Such intelligent pee-pole only deserve the best!

--]

In1921, soviet Russia was struck by famine & by March 1922, over 30
million people were suffering hunger or actually starving. Various
private initiatives were organized to help the famine victims. Lenin
quickly disposed of such private initiatives, dissolving the committee
& arresting its members. Lenin, who even as a youth of 22 had
opposed giving humanitarian help to starving peasants in the Volga
region during the 1892 famine, had no interest in saving peasants'
lives. But he pretended to care in order to force the church into a
position of both un-Christian callousness & defiance of the state by
ordering it do something he knew it could not do, namely turn over
consecrated vessels for sale to aid victims of the famine.

[--
So the stupid Russian people could only blame themselves for what happened.
They forgot what Lenin did & failed to see what an asshole he was. But most of
the blame here goes to the intelligentsia, who were lusting for power, not the
pee-pole who were too stupid to know any better.

In Miran, Goh intellectuals in Jendeyeh Melli, specially the Goh Baazargaan,
should have known that a KK Mullahs like Khomeini, who had Kasravi killed,
could never ever give anybody democracy! They should've read his book on
having sex with animals being OK, but maybe this is what made them like that KK,
they did were used to having sex with animals!

But in a culture where, Marxists & fanatic shit-Muslims could merge into 1 group,
anything can happen!

--]

The regime wanted not relief for the hungry but a pretext for breaking
the church. In the town of Shuia, worshipers put to flight communist
officials who tried to raid the local church. 3 days later, these
officials returned in the company of troops equipped with machine
guns & soldiers opened fire on the crowd. Lenin seized on the
events in Shuia as justification for an all-out attack on the church
hierarchy. In a top secret memorandum, dictated over the phone &
sent to the politburo with instructions that no copies be made, he
spelled out how the famine & the resistance of the church to
confiscation of vessels could be exploited to serve the government's
economic & political ends. "... it is now & only now, when in the
regions afflicted by the famine there is cannibalism & the roads are
littered with hundreds if not thousands of corpses, that we can (&
therefore must) pursue the acquisition of(church) valuables with
the most ferocious & merciless energy, stopping at nothing in
suppressing all resistance.... In this way we shall assure ourselves
of capital worth several hundred million gold rubles ....All considerations
indicate that later on we will not succeed, because no other moment
except that of desperate hunger will offer us such a mood among the
broad peasant masses, which will either assure us of their sympathy,
or, at any rate, their neutrality in the sense that victory in the struggle
for the removal of the valuables will remain unconditionally &
completely on our side.... the politburo will give detailed instructions
to the judiciary authorities that the trial of the Shuia rebels who
opposed help to the starving should be conducted with maximum
swiftness & end with the execution of a very large number of the most
influential & dangerous black hundreds of Shuia & several other church
centers ...

[--
Wow, what a MJ Lenin was!
Only to be matched by KK Khomeini in Miran. He must have said similar things
When he planned the burning of people in a cinema to blame the old regime …

--]

Lenin proposes to capitalize on the famine, for which his agrarian
policies were largely responsible & which claimed millions of victims,
to discredit & break the Church &, along with it, what was left of
the bourgeoisie. The wealth extorted from the church in this manner
was to be used not for famine relief, but for the political & economical
needs of the regime. The American Relief Admin, which 6 months later
took charge of aid to the starving Russians, contended that there was
no need for additional funds to purchase food since ARA already had
more food & supplies at all parts & on all the lines leading into Russia
than the soviet transportation could handle.
Lenin ignored an offer made by the Vatican to redeem for any sum
required both catholic & orthodox church vessels slated for confiscation.

[--
Where were the Russian intellectuals? Why didn't they do anything to stop Lenin?
Were they like Miranians, who all moved to Khaarej to have a good time?
I think this is another proof that there was no "revolution" by brave & noble & united
people of Russia, coz if they had done it, they wouldn't put up with KK Bolsheviks.
Just like Miran.

--]

p355----------------------

In March 1922, Lenin was informed that the authorities had found in
the Kremlin museum Jewels estimated by experts to be worth at least
300 million gold rubles. The soviet government was prepared in
1923 to sell some of this hoard to pay for German armaments.

Most of violence against the clergy took the form of lynchings & arrests
by the security organs. Archbishop Andronik of Pern is said to have had
his cheeks hallowed, his ears & nose cut off, & his eye gouged: thus
disfigured he was driven through the city & then thrown into the river to
drawn.

[--
When it comes to violence, Miranians are very creative too.
They used to parade Bahai's with burning candles in holes made in their bodies.
All arranged & invoked by the holy Mullahs of course.

--]

Recently released evidence indicates that over 8000 persons were
executed or killed in the course of 1922 in the conflict over church valuables.

The surprising & shocking thing was that these outrages were committed
by Russians, who were widely thought to have a deep attachment to their
church & that the population at large did not rise in protest: History must
record the fact that, in 1922, Russian orthodox soldiers plundered churches
at the bidding of a government consisting wholly of atheists & anticlericals.

[--
Yes indeed, it was done by true no-bell Russians. Just like in Miran, when the Mullahs
ridand-tu-din-va-keshvar, "the population at large did not rise in protest". Miranians
didn't even care about their own God & religion, they just sat back & watched & left the
country if they could. In fact, many who brought the curse to power, deny any
responsibility for it & say "God will punish those Mullahs who are corrupt", meaning
that they still think that the Mullahs should still rule the country & that they have
no responsibility to ensure that the government of God is not corrupt & filthy & actually
cares about the people. In fact one such Miranian was an American citizen who kept
living in US till he became retired in mid 95, then he went back to live in Miran coz
it was cheaper for him to do so. He was khaarej educated & was/is fiercely pro KK
Khomeini & was/is actively involved in Shiit Islamic movement!

--]

The perception of Jewish involvement was exacerbated by the deliberate
Bolshevik policy in some instances of sending Jews to despoil churches.
Maxim Groky wrote "I know of cases of young Jewish communists being
purposely involved in the prosecution of the church in order that the
philistine & the peasants should see: it is Jews that are ruining monasteries
& mocking 'holy places'. It seems to me that this was done partly from the
fear & partly from a clear intent to compromise the Jewish people, It was
done by anti-Semites, of whom there are not a few among the communists".

The campaign against religious organizations was accompanied by
renewed drive against religious belief. The government launched an
effort to discredit Christmas & the holidays of the other faiths. mock
religious celebrations were hastily staged in the major cities.
One witness said:
The population, & not only the faithful, looked upon this hideous
carnival with dumb horror. there were no protests from the silent
street- the years of terror had done their work- but nearly everyone
tried to turn off the road when it met this shocking procession. The
parade moved along empty streets & its attempts at creating laughter
or provocation were met with dull silence on the part of the occasional
witness.
This was indeed the case is confirmed by the decision of the party in
1923 to curtail such activities. A resolution demanded that atheists
refrain from offending the sensitivities of the believers since ridicule
only intensified 'religious fanaticism'.

[--
Yes indeed, u can't hit the nail on it's head!
Many 'educated' Miranians don't even visit any sites that has every now & then some
anti-Islamic articles. Many don't like the Mullahs but they still don't even read anything
that would criticizes the Shiit Islam! Yet they don't see that with their 'passivity' to the
filthy & criminal Mullahs' regime, they are partners to crime against their own God!

--]

Bolshevik tactic called for a split to be effected among the clergy.
The regime created & sponsored a splinter body known as the
"living church". its assembly hailed the Oct 1917 coup as a "Christian
creation" for its struggle against capitalism, denied that the communists
prosecuted the church & voted gratitude to Lenin for his role as "world
leader" & "tribune of social truth".

As an analogue of the living church, the regime created "Jewish
sections" (Evsektsii) of the Russian communist party. Their mission
was described as the destruction of traditional Jewish life, the Zionist
movement, & Hebrew culture.

A singular disability imposed on Jews was the prohibition on the use
& teaching of Hebrew, the language of religious services but also of
the Zionist movement. By the mid 1920s Hebrew was outlawed.
Yidish, which the bundists of the Evsektsiia regarded as the true
speech of the masses, was declared the national language of Jews.

p367------------------

Of the 3 principal religions represented in the soviet state, the Muslims
fared relatively the best. Their comparatively lenient treatment was due
entirely to political considerations, namely the fear of alienating the
colonial nations whose support was critical to the strategy of the
Comintern, since middle east Muslims were counted upon to undermine
imperialism. Sultan-Galiev cautioned Moscow that antireligious
propaganda among Muslims had to be conducted in a very circumspect
manner, not only because of their strong attachment to the faith but also
because they regarded the Muslim community as an "undivided whole" &
perceived an attack on one as an attack on all.

[--
I don't agree with this that the "Muslim community is an undivided whole".
Most Sunni Muslims laugh at the Shiit Muslims & openly criticize them.
I've seen Shiit Muslims making a fool of themselves, & be laughed it, in Makkah.
Not to mention the hatred & animosity between Sunni & Shiit Muslims in Iraq.

--]

In the rural districts, religious rituals were universally observed. Ignoring
soviet legislation, the peasants insisted on regarding as legitimate only
marriages performed by a priest.

Church life in 1920 was fully restored & perhaps even exceeded the old
, pre-Revolutionary one.

[--
Wow, it seems that the gaav/olaaq actually need their religion.
Maybe this is why many Miranians can't even imagine criticizing their religion,
not even after their holy clergy turns out to be filthy corrupt killers. They would
just say that their God will punish the bad Mullahs & keep on believing the shit
they were taught as kids.

--]

The only thing the Bolsheviks had achieved was to loosen the hierarchy
& split the church.

When in March 1921, confronting economic collapse & massive rebellions,
Lenin felt compelled to make a radical turnabout in economic policy
resulting in significant concessions to private enterprise, a course that came
to be known as the New Economic Policy (NEP), it was widely believed
in the country & abroad that the Russian revolution, too, had run its course
& entered its Thermidorian phase.

Thermidor was the month of July in the French revolution calendar when
Jacobin rule came to an abrupt end, yielding to a more moderate regime.
o the Marxists the term symbolized the triumph of the counterrevolution.

During the last 2 years of his conscious life, Lenin repeatedly had to
defend the NEP & insist that the revolution was on course. Deep in his
heart, however, he was haunted by a sense of defeat. The attempt to
build communism in a country as backward as Russia, he realized, had
been premature, & had to be postponed until the requisite economic &
cultural foundations were in place. Nothing went as planned: "the car is
out of control," he let slip once, "a man drives & the car does not go
where he steers it, but where it is steered by something illegal, something
unlawful, something that comes from God knows where". "on the
economic front, with the attempt of transition to communism, we have
suffered by the spring of 1921 a defeat that was more serious than any
inflicted on us by Kolchak, Denikin, or Pilsudski, far more serious, far
more basic & dangerous". It was an admission that he had been
mistaken in insisting as early as the 1890s that Russia was fully capitalist
& ready for socialism.

The civil war had to some extent shielded the communists from the
unpopularity of their policies by making it possible to justify them as
militarily necessary.

In 1920-21, except for its own cadres, the Bolshevik regime had the
whole country against it, & even the cadres were rebelling. Lenin had
himself described the Bolsheviks as but a drop of water in the nation's
sea. And the sea was raging.

[--
Wow, yet they managed to brainwash so many that the Russian people made a
popular "revolution". What is amazing to me is that most Miranians have not
approved of the Mullahs' regime for over 20 years, but haven't done anything to
remove it. Bless the Masters for helping the KIR on top to rule the Miranians
for so many years.

--]

p382-------------------

Trotsky ordered the mutineers to surrender at once & to throw
themselves on the mercy of the government; the alternative was military
retribution. With minor changes, his ultimatum could have been issued
by a tsarist governor-general. One appeal to the rebels threatened that
if they continued resistance they would be "shot like partridges". Trotsky
ordered the mutineers' wives & children residing in Petrograd to be taken
hostage. Annoyed with the insistence of the head of the Petrograd Cheka
that the Kronshtadt rebellion was spontaneous, he asked Moscow to have
him dismissed.

The day after the 1st shots had been fired, the Izvestiia of the Provisional
revolutionary committee of Kronshtadt published a statement, "what we
are fighting for," calling for a "third revolution".
"in carrying out the October revolution, the working class hoped to achieve
its liberation. The outcome has been even greater enslavement of human
beings. Power has passed from a monarchy based on the police &
gendarmerie into the hands of usurpers-communists-who have given the
toilers not freedom but the daily dread of ending up in the torture chambers
of the Cheka, the horror of which exceeds many times the rule of tsarism's
gendarmerie."

[--
I'm lost for words here!
So not all Russians were gaav/olaaq, but they still couldn't beat the KK Bolsheviks.

--]

Arriving in Tambov at the beginning of May, Tukhachevskii assembled
a force which at the height of the operation numbered over 100,000 men.
Assisting the red army were "international units" of Hungarian & Chinese
volunteers. Tukhachevskii realized that he confronted not only a military
force-thousands of guerrillas- but also a hostile population of millions.
It was decided to conduct all operations in a cruel manner so that the
very nature of the actions(taken) would command respect.

[--
KK Khomeini really believed in this rule & Mullahs loved it & butchered non stop
for a long time. All the times bullshitting that Miranians did revolution coz the old regime
was "cruel". None of the Goh opposition groups admitted that the old regime was an
angle compared to the KK Mullahs. They all kept on bullshitting about the cruelty of the
old regime on & on & on. To justify their Goh Khori & betrayal.

--]

Essential to this strategy was good intelligence. Using paid informers,
the Cheka obtained lists of the partisans: a special directive ordered their
families to be held as hostages. Using these lists, to which it added the
names of peasants designated "kulaks", the Cheka herded thousands of
hostages into concentration camps especially built for the purpose.

[--
Yes indeed, Miranians turned into informers by the thousands. If they didn't like their
neighbor, they'd just call him taaquti or Savaki & hey presto the neighbor was
'eliminated' & they could take over his house or his stuff.

--]

p399---------------------------

Lenin & his associates believed that problems were caused by people,
& that one solved them by getting rid troublemakers.

[--
Just like KK Khomeini who had Kasravi killed, never thinking that eventually others
will see the big picture & will start questioning the Shiit Islam.

--]

Lenin wrote: the task of the judiciary was to provide a principled &
politically correct (& not merely narrowly juridical).... essence &
justification of terror...The court is not to eliminate terror... but to
substantiate it & legitimize it in principle.

[--
How could the Russian culture create such a MJ & asshole "creature"?!
How could the Russian intellectuals support such an asshole?

--]

Lenin thrived on combat: political warfare was his true metier. To
pursue it, he required enemies. Having been twice defeated-first by
failing to spread communism abroad, & then by failing to construct a
socialist economy at home-he now turned his energies to fighting
imaginary foes. The enemies he selected for repression were "guilty"
not by virtue of anything they had done or even intended to do, but
because by the mere fact of their existence they defied the revolutionary
order. The principal victims of his wrath were the clergy & the socialists.

There were numerous reports of the hunger-maddened killing & eating
neighbors & even their own. Nansen visited Russia & spoke of
cannibalism as a phenomenon spreading to a terrific degree.
The famine was accompanied by epidemics, which ravaged bodies
weakened by hunger. The main killer was typhus, but hundreds of
thousands also fell victim to cholera, typhoid fever & smallpox.
In the 1891-92 famine, when 12.5 million peasants were afflicted with
hunger, tsarist authorities moved quickly & effectively & arranged food
supplies to be delivered to 11 million victims & supplied generous
emergency aid to local governments. As a result the number of fatalities
were 1/13 of those suffered by the starving under the Bolsheviks.

In none of Lenin's writings or speeches of that period can one find one
word of sympathy for the millions of his subjects who were perishing
from hunger. Indeed, it has been suggested that the famine was to him
not unwelcome politically because it so weakened the peasantry that it
wiped out any likelihood of peasant resistance & pacified the village
even more rapidly than did the repeal of food requisitioning.

With Lenin's approval, Gorky issued an appeal "to all honorable
people" soliciting food & medicines. A group of civic leaders formed
"Pomgol", a public committee to aid the hunger. It had 73 members,
including Gorky. Gorky on behalf of the soviet government accepted
offer of help from the American Relief admin. ARA spent 61.6 million
dollars on Russian relief. But Lenin made short shrif of Pomgol: he had
used it as a go-between to avoid the embarrassment of having to beg
help from the "imperialist" enemy. Lenin asked Stalin to demand the
immediate dissolution of Pomgol & the imprisonment or exile of its
leaders, on the ostensible grounds of unwillingness to work. He
further ordered that the press be directed in a hundred ways to
ridicule & badger its members at least once a week for 2 months.

Once the American & other foreign organizations assumed the principal
responsibilities for feeding starving soviet citizens, Moscow diverted
its resources to other purposes. Three days after an agreement with
Hoover/ARA, Litvinov informed Moscow that he had sold to an English
party Jewels worth 20 million gold rubles & that the buyer was prepared
to purchase additional Jewels for the value of 20 million pounds- a sum
exceeding the combined US & European donations to starving
Russians. Trotsky instructed the soviet agent in Germany, in strictest
secrecy, to place orders for rifles & machine guns worth 10 million
gold rubles. At the very same time the soviet government was relying
on western charity to feed its people, it was offering foodstuffs for sale
abroad. In the fall of 1922, Moscow made it known that it had millions
of tons of cereals available for export- this at a time when its own
estimates indicated that during the coming winter 8 million soviet citizens
would still require food assistance.

[--
There was no limit to their M-Jendegi.
Mind u, they did all this in the name of "Brotherhood of Mankind"!
Who was worst, Bolsheviks, or the Mullahs who claimed to be the Karim-Rahmaan
merciful God's representatives?

--]

p425--------------------------

Soviet Russia provided the German army with a sanctuary in which to
build & test advanced weapons in exchange for some of this equipment
& the training of the red army in their use. This collaboration continued
until Sept 1933, 9 months after Hitler came to power.
Lenin formally requested the German army to help reorganize the red
army in March 1921.

For Moscow it was essential to keep the Allies & Germany at daggers
drawn, & to this end it found the Versailles treaty a perfect vehicle.

The organ of the German communists(KPD) now opened its pages
to Nationalists; Nazis spoke at communist rallies & communists at
Nazi ones. The KPD put on posters that blended the swastika with
the red star. The Spartacist, Ruth Fischer, herself Jewish, exhorted
German students to trample & hang Jewish capitalists. This
collaboration ended in Aug 1923, when the Nazis pulled out.

To prevent the new prime minister, Gustav Stresemann, from realizing
his policy of negotiating with the Allied powers for financial assistance
& for an easing of the Versailles terms, the Politburo decided in Aug
1923, to overthrow his government. Hoping to take advantage of a
wave of strikes that broke out at the time in Germany, Trotsky
dispatched there a military mission to organize the coup. One million
tons of grain were stockpiled in Petrograd & at frontier points to help
the Germans withstand an anticipated Allied blockade; a relief fund of
200 million gold rubles was also set aside. Trotsky discussed the
revolutionary tactics with German communists, on whose advice it was
decided to begin the coup in Saxony. But German workers failed to
respond to revolutionary appeals & the coup, which was concurrent
with the right-wing Kapp putsch, failed miserably. From Nov 1923 to
Mar 1924 the German communist party was outlawed.

Soviet Russia agreed to let Germany produced weapons prohibited by
the Versailles treaty on Russian territory in facilities financed & managed
by Germany.

p437---------------------------------

The Bolshevik leaders, & no one more than Lenin, fretted about the
progressive bureaucratization of their regime. The more the bureaucracy
expanded, the more of the budget it absorbed, the less got done.

It apparently never occurred to the Bolsheviks that "power" of which
they never had enough, meant not only opportunity but also responsibility;
that the fulfillment of that responsibility was a full-time occupation calling
for correspondingly large cadres of professionals; & that these
professionals were unlikely to be concerned exclusively or even primarily
with public welfare but would also attend to their own needs. The
bureaucratization of life that accompanied communist rule opened
unprecedented opportunities for clerical careers to lower-middle-class
elements previously barred from them: they were its principal beneficiaries.

... the peasantry, the working class, the armed forces ... now make up
the huge "soviet bureaucracy"- this new urban stratum, in its essence
& ambitions a petty bourgeoisie, all of whose interests bind it to the
revolution, because it alone enabled them to climb to where they are,
freed of hard productive labor & involved in the mechanism of state
administration, rising above the nation's masses.

By the time the civil war ended, the communist party had a sizeable
staff occupied exclusively with paperwork. Only 21% of the members
engaged in physical labor in industry or agriculture; the remaining 79%
held various white-color positions. The members' educational level
was exceedingly low & not commensurate with their responsibilities
& authority: in 1922, only 0.6%(2316) had completed higher education,
& 6.4% (24318) had secondary school diplomas.
...92.7% of party members were functionally semiliterate(18000 or
4.7%, were completely illiterate). from the body of white-color
personnel emerged an elite of functionaries employed in Moscow by
the central organs of the communist party. In 1922, this group
numbered over 15000 persons.

p440------------------------

Although the undoubtedly were communists who joined the party
for idealistic reasons, the majority did so for the advantages membership
bestowed. Members enjoyed privileges that in the 19 century had been
associated with gentry status, namely, assured access to executive
positions in government. Trotsky labeled them "radishes" (red outside,
white inside). From the beginning of it reign, the communist party's status
as an entity above the law transferred also to its membership. Such
power, combined with legal immunity, inevitably led to abuses.
Communist bosses behaved like 18 century owners of serfs.

[--
Many Miranians became very rich & powerful overnight by joining the KIR regime.
Many qaaltaaq & laat kids joined the Basij & ruled with terror.
They all ruled with terror in God's own name.

--]

Overall, between 1917 & the middle of 1921, the number of government
employees increased nearly fivefold, from 576000 to 2.4 million. By then
the country had over twice as many bureaucrats as workers.

Given the immense need for officials & the low educational level of its
own cadres, the new regime had no choice but to hire large number of
ex-tsarist officials, especially personnel qualified to run ministerial bureaus.
The new bureaucracy modeled itself on the tsarist. As before 1917,
officials served the state, not the nation, which they viewed as a hostile force.

Berkman visited Russia in 1920 & reported: ... gatherings of worn, tired
people, looking hungry & apathetic. The corridors & offices are crowded
with applicants seeking permission to do or to be exempt from doing this
or that. .... Workers & peasants, their heads bared, approach the long
tables. Respectfully, even servilely, they seek information, plead for an
"order" for clothing, or a "ticket" for boots. "I don't know," "in the next
office," "come tomorrow," is the usual reply. There are protests &
lamentations, & begging for attention & advice.

In the summer of 1920 the communist party was shaken by a heresy the
party establishment designated the "Workers' Opposition". The WO
were Bolsheviks, who accepted the dictatorship of the party & found
nothing wrong with the party's treatment of the peasantry. But they found
it unacceptable that the intelligentsia, formed into a new bureaucracy, was
displacing labor as the country's ruling class. For indeed, the country's
"worker" government had not a single worker in a position of authority:
most of its leading officials had not only never worked in a factory or on
a farm, but had never even held a steady job.
Lenin denounced the WO as a species of the Menshevism & syndicalism
& counterattacked & crushed it in no time. But in so doing he had
recourse to procedures that destroyed, once & for all, what was left of
democracy in communist ranks.

In March 1921, Kollanti released for internal party use a brochure in
which she assailed the regime's bureaucratization. The WO, she argued,
made up exclusively of laboring men & women, felt that the party's
leadership had lost touch with labor... This happened because the soviet
apparatus had been taken over by class enemies who despised communism:
the petty bourgeoisie had seized control of the bureaucracy, while the
"grand bourgeoisie", in the guise of "specialists", had taken over industrial
management & the military command.

Lenin had the 9th party congress pass a resolution forbidding trade unions
to interfere with management. He justified such procedures with the
argument that under communism, which had eliminated the exploiting
classes, trade unions no longer had to defend the interests of the workers
since this was done for them by the government.

[--
Wow!
Khomeini only banned & punished the very few 'good' Mullahs, who dared to oppose
him. He had no problem doing this & the mass gaav/olaaq were passive as usual.

--]

Worker defections confronted Lenin & his associates with a problem:
how to govern in the name of the "proletariat" when the proletariat
turned its back on them. One solution was to denigrate Russia's working
class. it was now often heard that the "true" workers had given their lives
in the civil war & that their place had been taken by social dregs.

Another way of dealing with the challenge was to interpret the
"proletariat" as an abstraction: in this view, the party was by definition
the "people" & acted on their behalf no matter what the living people
thought they wanted.

Trotsky said that it was not possible to entrust the management of the
economy to workers, if only because there were hardly any communists
among them ... In other words, one could have either communism ("the
dictatorship of the proletariat") or worker rule, but not both: democracy
spelled the doom of communism. Bukharin explicitly acknowledged that
communism could not be reconciled with democracy.

[--
KK Khomeini said that democracy would lead to prostitution!
I suppose the credit should go to the Goh Baazargaan.

p457----------------------

The 1st symptoms of Lenin's illness appeared in 1921. In March 1922,
he delivered a rambling speech attacking anyone who disagreed with him,
subjecting some of his closest associates to ridicule. Observing his erratic
motions, lapses of memory, & occasional speech difficulties, some doctors
now concluded that he was suffering from a more serious malady, namely
progressive paralysis, for which there was no cure & which was bound to
end before long in total incapacitation & death. He began to make
preparations for an orderly transfer of authority. This was for him a very
painful task, not only because he loved power above all else, but also
because he thought no one was truly qualified to inherit his mantle.

At the time, Trotsky, the "organizer of victory" as Radek called him,
seemed the natural hair. But he had much going against him. He had
joined the Bolshevik party late, on the eve of the Oct coup, after subjecting
Lenin & his followers for years to ridicule & criticism. The old guard never
forgave him for his past & he remained an outsider to the party's inner
circle. He was widely disliked for arrogance & lack of tact.

According to Lenin's sister, Trotsky could not control his temper & at
one meeting of the Politburo called Lenin a "hooligan". Lenin turned
white as chalk, but made no reply.

The key to Stalin's rising power was the combination of functions vested
in him as member of the Orgburo & chairman of the secretariat. At his
command, officials could be promoted, relocated, or dismissed. This power
Stalin used not only to eliminate anyone who challenged the judgment of
the central committee, as Lenin wanted, but to appoint functionaries
personally loyal to him. To make certain nothing escaped his attention,
Stalin required provincial party secretaries to report to him personally
once a month. Stalin acquired unrivaled knowledge of party affairs down
to their lowest levels ..... he withheld this information from his potential rivals.

Lenin endowed Stalin with powers that he himself 6 months later would
characterize as boundless. By then it would be too late to curb them.

Lenin did not anticipate that as a result of the regime he had introduced,
Russia would come under one-man rule. He thought that impossible. In Jan
1919, in a personal exchange with the Menshevik historian, who had
expressed such fears, he wrote:
as concerns "personal dictatorship", if you pardon the expression, it is utter
nonsense. The apparatus has grown altogether gigantic-in some respects
excessive. And under these conditions, a personal dictatorship is in general
unrealizable.

To a detached observer the problems that troubled Lenin & jeopardized his
revolution appear embedded in the premises of his regime.

In pursuit of the dream the Bolsheviks had built up an immense &
centralized machine of power to which they then gradually surrendered
more & more of their dreams: proletarian democracy, the rights of small
nations, & finally their own freedom. They could not dispense with power
if they were to strive for the fulfillment of their ideals; but now their power
came to oppress & overshadow their ideals.

[--
I think the KIR regime was different.
The Goh Mullahs thought they knew it all, coz they were representing God. So their
dream was to gain POWER & F* the hell out of the people & the country. But gradually
those people, who were stupid enough to think that Shiit Islam would provide salvation
for the country & the economy & turn Miran into behesht, started to see that the Shiit
Islam could not deliver! Like u just can't run the country without banks & Mullahs
making money from "interests" on loans. So they gradually started to accept "corruption"
of rules & the "kolaaye shar'i" that the Mullahs came up with (as they had done for
centuries). The Mullahs just kept on brainwashing people & killing all oppositions, while
moving money out of the country into their Swiss banks.

And those stupid intellectuals who had supported the KIR, had to keep on bullshitting
about how cruel the old regime had been. But they could never explain how they did a
revolution to gain freedom & democracy, but ended up with a regime so oppressive &
corrupt & criminal & incompetent (bad enough to destroyed the economy & almost
losing the whole country in a war), that it didn't make any sense at all.

Stalin played a brilliant game that deceived everyone, from Lenin down.
He would take on himself essential jobs that no one else wanted:
drudgeries involving the flow of paper ... He always claimed to have
the good of the party uppermost in mind. He seemed devoid of personal
ambitions & vanity, quite content to let Trotsky & few others bask in
the public limelight. At his country dacha, Stalin would gather the
party's leaders, sometimes with their wives & children, to discuss
matters of substance but also to reminisce, sing & dance. Nothing he
did or said suggested that underneath his amiable exterior lurked
murder. Like a predator mimicking harmless insects, he insinuated
himself into the midst of his unsuspecting prey.

[--
I wonder how much the opposition leaders of 78 knew about how KK Khomeini
was bent on killing & cruelty? Surely, by 78 he had already shown his hands by
having Kasravi killed, so they couldn't say "we didn't know", it was their job
to know these things. Besides, the issue was not just Khomeini, but the rule of the
Mullahs, who were really hated by the educated people & had very bad reputation in
Miran, so they must've known. Perhaps, once they saw the Masters giving the green
light, their goal was to get rid of the old regime & sorts things out later.

--]

This minor bureaucratic defeat(Trotsky persuaded the party to adopt
Lenin's position on some issue), & the specter of a Lenin-Trotsky
alliance, alarmed the triumvirate: their political survival demanded
Lenin's complete insulation from government affairs. On Dec 18, the
day Trotsky won his victory, Stalin & Kamenev obtained from the plenum
a mandate giving Stalin authority over Lenin's health regimen. The
critical clause .... read: to place on comrade Stalin personal
responsibility for the isolation of Vladimir Ilich both in respect to
personal contacts with communist workers & correspondence. According
to Stalin's instructions, Lenin was to work only at brief intervals,
to dictate to secretaries, one of whom was Stalin's wife. It was an
astonishing measure, which treated Lenin & his wife as mentally incompetent.
Feeling ensnared by a web of intrigue, at the heart of which he came
increasingly to suspect Stalin, Lenin turned for help to Trotsky, who
was in a similar predicament.

On Dec 21, apparently distrusting his secretaries, Lenin dictated to his
wife Krupskaia a warm note to Trotsky, congratulating him on
winning the battle over the foreign trade monopoly ... The contents of
this note were at once communicated to Stalin, who now had
confirmation of his suspicion that Lenin & Trotsky were joining forces
against him. The next day he telephoned Krupskaia, berating her
crudely for having transcribed her husband's dictation in violation of
the regimen he had established under the party's authority, &
threatening her with an investigation by the central control commission.
After hanging up, she fell into hysterics, crying & rolling on the
floor. She wrote that in all her years as party member no one had
spoken to her as Stalin had done. That night before she could tell Lenin
of the incident, he suffered yet another stroke.

Thus, under the pretense of safeguarding his health, Stalin & his
associates in effect placed Lenin under house arrest.

[--
I'm speechless again!
Some "revolution", hah?
He built a system to butcher people & starve millions to death in the name of
"brotherhood of mankind", but the system ended up treating him like a mad-man,
which he was, putting him under house arrest & at the same time parade him around like
a God.

--]

These measures had a curious echo 30 years later. In the fall of 1952
Stalin's physician found him unwell & urged that he immediately cease
all work. Stalin, probably mindful of precedent, ordered him arrested.

Lenin was paying dearly for his political habits. For 20 years he had
dominated his associates; but now they had tasted power, & were burning
with impatience to be on their own. They justified what amounted to a
quiet coup d'etat in a whispered campaign within party circles that the
"old man" was out of touch & even something of a "mental invalid".
Trotsky disloyally joined in this campaign.

Lenin wrote for Pravda an article intended for the forthcoming party
congress, in which he voiced anxiety over the possibility of a split in
the party & suggested ways of averting it. ... At the same time, the
leadership sent a confidential circular to the provincial & district party
organizations intended to neutralize the article's potentially harmful
effect. The letter drafted by Trotsky & signed by all the members of
the politburo, including Stalin, advised that Lenin was unwell & unable
to participate in Politburo meetings. This explained why he did not
realize that, in fact, there was not the slightest risk of a split in the
party. Had he known of this document, Lenin might well have echoed
the words Nicholas II had written in his diary after being forced to
abdicate: "all around treason & cowardice & deception!".
Lenin fought back like a cornered animal. ... he planned to intervene
with Trotsky's help ... Trotsky was his natural ally in this endeavor,
for he too was politically isolated. Had Lenin succeeded, Stalin's
career would have been seriously set back, if not ruined.

Stalin was a Georgian & spoke Russian with a comic foreign accent!

[--
I bet he wasn't really respected for this in his early days.
How strange that the KK Imam had a comic accent too, which must've pissed off
many intellectuals that now their own ruler was a dehaati Mullaayeh ahmaqeh Goh.
Credit goes to the Masters who pulled it off.

--]

Lenin felt so betrayed by his associates that during the 13 months he
had left to live he categorically refused to see any of them, communicating
only indirectly, through his secretarial staff. During 1923 he saw neither
Trotsky nor Stalin, all were kept away on his explicit orders. This
separation from his closest associates resembled the decision of Nicholas II,
in the last months of his reign, to break off relations with the Grand Dukes.

[--
To me this is just poetic justice.
--]

Lenin dictated: Stalin, having become general secretary, had accumulated
unbounded power, I'm not convinced that he will always know how to
use this power ... Stalin is too coarse & this shortcoming, fully tolerated
within our midst & in our relations, as communists, becomes intolerable
in the post of general secretary. For this reason I suggest the comrades
consider how to transfer Stalin from this post ...
Lenin thus fathomed only Stalin's minor vices, flaws & conduct &
temperament: his sadistic cruelty, his megalomania, his hatred of anyone
superior, eluded him to the end.

[--
I think too much is made of the MJ Lenin, he wasn't smart at all. Author uses
the term "eluded him" as if Lenin was so smart but missed to see this part.
MJ did too much damage to his country & many parts of the world chasing
his EGO in lust for power & got millions killed in the name of "brotherhood of
mankind". There was nothing smart about it. What do the Russians have to show
for it now?
What do the idiot Miranians have to show for it after over 25 years of nightmare?
Economic or any other sort of prosperity?
Any form of social-justice & fairness in the society?
Lack of corruption?
Good education or health?
F*ing de-mock-rat-see?
They have F* all!
But what would the Mullahs have to show for it 50 years from now?
Coz, when the Masters bring down the Mullahs, which it has to happen, the whole
hell will break loose & Miranians will butcher Mullahs & their families & the
Mullahs couldn't even take refuge outside Miran, coz they are hated by millions of
Miranians scattered all over the world.
So Khomeini's jendeh daughter could go around telling people "Imam never said
women shouldn't wear colorful cloths" but it won't work. Miranians maybe gaav/olaaq,
but they are not that stupid. Once the KIR falls, the "truth will set them free".

--]

To Trotsky, Lenin confided he was "preparing a bomb" against Stalin
at the 12 party congress. Stalin was fighting for his political life: powerfully
positioned though he was, once Lenin personally took the filed, he stood
no chance. His one hope was that Lenin would be fully incapacitated
before he could bring him down.

When Lenin found from his wife how Stalin had spoken to her the
previous December, he dictated a letter to Stalin:
you had the rudeness to telephone my wife & abuse her. Although
she has told you of her willingness to forget what you have said...
I have no intention of forgetting so easily what is done against me, &
needless to say, I consider whatever is done against my wife to be
directed also against myself. For this reason I request you to inform
me whether you agree to retract what you have said & apologize, or
prefer a breach of relations between us.

[--
He was as kineh'i as KK Imam!
But considering that the F*ing Imam was supposed to represent a merciful God,
Imam was far worst than Lenin.

--]

A few days later, Lenin suffered a massive stroke, which robbed him of
the power of speech. For all practical purposes he was a living corpse:
for although he seemed to understand what was said to him & was able to
read, he could not communicate. In this last period of his life, he
seemed to have been overwhelmed by a sense of failure. It was evidenced
by an uncharacteristic craving for praise, for reassurance that
whatever the outcome, he had made history.

Trotsky defended himself from criticism for having refused Lenin's
offer of deputyship. Although his Jewish origins held for him no
meaning, he said, it was politically significant. By assuming the high
post Lenin offered him, he would "give enemies ground for claiming that
the country was ruled by a Jew". Lenin had dismissed the argument as
"nonsense" but "deep in his heart he agreed with me".

p486------------------------

Trotsky awoke to the dangers of totalitarianism only when it threatened
him personally: his sudden conversion to party democracy was a means
of self-defense, not the championship of principle. The record indicates
that in his day, Trotsky, too, was one of the pack. His defeat had nothing
ennobling about it. He lost because he was outsmarted in a sordid struggle
for political power.

Lenin died on Jan 21, 1924.
Lenin had expressed the wish to be buried by the side of his mother in
Petrograd. But the party's masters had other ideas. They needed the
physical Lenin on permanent exhibit to cater to the popular belief, rooted
in orthodox religion, that the remains of saints were immune to decay.
None of them, except their common enemy Trotsky, was widely known.
Stalin was hardly a household name. A dead, & therefore mute but
corporeal, Lenin, suitably preserved, would provide validation of the faith
he had founded & provide continuity between the October revolution &
the rule of his successors. Stalin delivered a funeral speech with a "pledge"
in which, using religious cadences he had learned in the seminary, he
vowed in the name of the party faithfully to carry out Lenin's commands.
By March, the corpse began to decompose. Krasin, placed in charge of
the funeral arrangements, believed in resurrection & suggested that the
corpse be frozen: special apparatus for this purpose was imported from
Germany, but the idea had to be dropped as impractical. After lengthy
discussions, Vorobev was entrusted with the task of embalming Lenin.

Lenin's brain was removed & transferred to the Lenin institute, where
scientists were assigned to discover the secret of his "genius" & to prove
that it represented a "higher stage in the evolution of mankind". Lenin's
heart was deposited in the Lenin museum.

In 1939, Stalin assigned 22 scientists to a laboratory to oversee the mummy,
which, despite precautions, did not remain stable. The most advanced
scientific methods were applied to prevent further decay or changes in
appearances.

Thus the Bolsheviks who 5 years earlier in a noisy campaign of blasphemy
& ridicule exposed as sham the relics of orthodox saints, created a holy
relic of their own. Unlike the church's saints, whose remains were revealed
to be nothing but rags & bones, their god, as befitted the age of science,
was composed of alcohol, glycerin & formalin.

[--
Bravo!
The communist God composed of "alcohol, glycerin & formalin", wow!
What a poetic justice!

p490---------------------------

The Russian revolution of 1917 was not an event or even a process, but a
sequence of disruptive & violent acts that occurred more or less concurrently
but involved actors with differing & in some measure contradictory objectives.
It began as a revolt of the most conservative elements in Russian society,
disgusted by the crown's familiarity with Rasputin & the mismanagement of
the war effort. From conservatives the revolt spread to the liberals, who
challenged the monarchy from fear that if it remained in office, revolution
would become inevitable. In Feb 1917, when the Petrograd garrison refused
to fire on civilian crowds, the generals, in agreement with parliamentary
politicians, hoping to prevent the mutiny from spreading to the front,
convinced Tsar to abdicate.

Although initially neither social discontent nor the agitation of the radical
intelligentsia played any significant role in these events, both moved to the
forefront the instant imperial authority collapsed. In the spring of 1917,
peasants began to seize & distribute among themselves noncommunal
properties. Next the rebellion spread to frontline troops, who deserted in
droves to share in the spoils; to workers, who took control of industrial
enterprises; & to ethnic minorities, but the cumulative effect of their assault
on the country's social & economic structure by the autumn of 1917 created
in Russia a state of anarchy.

[--
Trust stupid pee-pole caring more about "sharing the spoils" than their own
country & future!

--]

...the Russian empire was a fragile artificial structure, held together by
mechanical links provided by the bureaucracy, police & army. Its 150 million
inhabitants were bound neither by strong economic interests nor by a sense
of national identity.

[--
I think lack of "sense of nationality" has been major factor in Miranian culture too.
Perhaps after centuries of invasion & looting & rape & internal fighting amongst
the ruling families or tribes, they just stuck their heads in the sand & learnt to care
only for their own families? But this is no excuse. They should know by now that
when the country gets F*ed, they all get F*ed. Maybe they are a bit "thick".

--]

Russia had ... certain weakness or lack of a strong cohesion or cementation
of elements which form a social compound. ... From political point of view,
Russian state institutions lacked cohesion & amalgamation with popular
masses over which they ruled ...

Once these factors are taken into consideration, it becomes apparent that
the Marxist notion that revolution always results from social ("class") discontent
cannot be sustained. Although such discontent did exist in imperial Russia, as
it does everywhere, the decisive & immediate factors making for the regime's
fall & the resultant turmoil were overwhelmingly political.

The half-hearted concessions made in 1905 to share power with society
neither made tsarism more popular with the opposition nor raised its prestige
in the eyes of the people at large, who simply could not understand how a
ruler would allow himself to be abused from the forum of a government
institution. the Confucian principle of ... Mandate of Heaven ... in Russia
derived from forceful conduct: a weak ruler, a "loser", forfeited it. Nothing
could be more misleading than to judge a Russian head of state by the
standard of either morality or popularity: what mattered was that he inspired
fear in friends & foe-that, like Ivan IV, he deserved the sobriquet of "awesome".
Nicholas II fell not because he was hated but because he was held in contempt.

[--
I think this is very true in Miran. Once u show kindness to gaav/olaaq who are
used to being beaten up on daily basis by all those that can be in any position of
authority, like police or any paper-pusher in bureaucracy or any doorman, they will
see it as "weakness" & will immediately try to dominate u! The damage in Miran was
done when the "student" protest was "organized" when Shah visited Carter in US &
later, when people could go to tazaahorat without being shot at, or when they could
do allaaho-akbar-baazi on their roofs & get away with it.

--]

Among the other factors making for revolution was the mentality of the Russian
peasantry, of a class never integrated into the political structure. They made
up 80% Russia's population. It is commonplace to hear that under the old
regime the Russian peasant was "oppressed", but it is far from clear just
who was oppressing him. On the eve of the revolution, he enjoyed full civil
& legal rights; he also owned, either outright or communally, 9/10 of the
country's agricultural land & the same proportion of livestock. Poor by
western European or American std, he was better off than his father, & freer
than his grandfather, who more likely than not had been a serf. .... he certainly
enjoyed greater security than tenant farmers of Ireland, Spain or Italy.

Problem with Russian peasants was not oppression, but isolation.

[--
Bravo!
They were too stupid to know they had it too good, so they got sucked in &
fell for their MJ intelligentsia.
Miranians were too stupid to know who would oppress them worst, & their
opposition leaders only lusted for power to oppress pee-pole themselves &
make their own families rich, even their own holy clergies.

--]

The peasant knew no loyalty outside his household & commune. He felt
no patriotism & no attachment to the government ... He looked down on
the city & on men without beards: Marquis de Custine heard it said as early
as 1839 that someday Russia would see a revolt of the bearded against the
shaven. The existence of this mass of alienated & potentially explosive
peasants immobilized the government, which believed that it was docile
only from fear & would interpret any political concessions as weakness &
rebel.

[--
Hell, the entire Goh culture of Miran "knew no loyalty outside his household &
commune" & "felt no patriotism & no attachment to the government". Anybody,
who could, would bribe & do anything to prevent his son to do military service.
Logic never played a role in the culture, pee-pole tried to get away with anything
they could, abusing anything or anybody they could, including abusing their own
religion. Their holy Mullahs invented abuse of religion.

--]

The traditions of serfdom & the social institutions of rural Russia
prevented the peasantry from developing qualities required for modern
citizenship. While serfdom was not slavery, the two institutions had
this in common that like slaves, serfs had no legal rights & hence no
sense of law. ... serfdom may have been worse than slavery in that a
serf had never known freedom, which prevented him from acquiring the
qualities of a true citizen: in his opinion, it was a principal cause
of bolshevism. To serfs, authority was by its very nature arbitrary:& to
defend themselves from it they relied not on appeals to legal or moral
rights, but on cunning. They could not conceive of government based on
principle: life to them was a hobbesian war of all against all. This
attitude fostered despotism: for the absence of inner discipline &
respect for law required order to be imposed from the outside. When
despotism ceased to be viable, anarchy ensued;& once anarchy had run
its course, it inevitably gave rise to a new despotism.

[--
Yes indeed, gaav/olaaq brainwashed not-to-think & follow-shit-religion & abused for
centuries can NOT become Civil overnight & have democracy!

--]

Russian industrial workers were potentially destabilizing not because
they assimilated revolutionary ideologies-very few of them did & even
they were excluded from leadership positions in the revolutionary
parties. Rather, since most of them were one or at most two generations
removed from village & only superficially urbanized, they carried with
them to the factory rural attitudes only slightly adjusted to industrial
conditions. They were not socialists but syndicalists, believing that as
their village relatives were entitled to all the land, so they had a right to
the factories. ... industrial labor in Russia was numerically too insignificant
to play a major role in revolution: with at most 3 million workers(a high
proportion of them peasants seasonally employed), they represented a
mere 2% of the population.

Vera Zasulich, who begun her revolutionary career in the 1870w &
lived to witness Lenin's dictatorship, acknowledged in 1918 the
responsibility of socialists for bolshevism in that they had goaded workers-
&, one could add, peasants- to seize property, but taught them nothing
of citizens' obligations.

A major & arguably decisive factor making for revolution was the intelligentsia,
which in Russia attained greater influence than anywhere else. The peculiar
"ranking" system of the tsarist civil service excluded outsiders from the
administration, estranging the best-educated elements & making them
susceptible to fantastic schemes of social reform, conceived but never
tried in western Europe. The absence until 1906 of representative
institutions & a free press, combined with the spread of education,
enabled the cultural elite to claim the right to speak on behalf of a mute
people. There exists no evidence that the intelligentsia actually reflected
the opinion of the "masses": on the contrary, the evidence indicates that
both before & after the revolution peasants & workers deeply mistrusted
intellectuals. ... But since the true will of the people had no channels of
expression,...., the intelligentsia was able with some success to pose as
its spokesman.

[--
The problem with Miran was that it didn't have 'people', so "opinion of masses' did
not exist. Masses of gaav/olaaq didn't have 'opinion'. They had never learnt to think
for themselves.
Miranian intellectuals looked down at the masses & called them "ahmaq amaleh dehaati"
& called themselves doktor & mohandes, while using their own people as slaves in
their homes as kolfat nokar. This was true even with people in the tudeh party, who were
supposedly "communists".
U must dominate others to prevent others from dominating u!

--]

... intelligentsia in Russia constituted itself into a caste:& since ideas were
what gave it identity & cohesion, it developed extreme intellectual
intolerance. ... Its stress on the inequities of the status quo was merely
a device for gaining popular support: no rectification of these inequalities
would have persuaded radical intellectuals to give up their revolutionary
aspirations. Such beliefs linked members of various left-wing parties.

The intelligentsia, which we have defined as intellectuals craving power,
stood in total & uncompromising hostility to the existing order: nothing
the tsarist regime could do short of committing suicide would have satisfied
it. They were revolutionaries not for the sake of improving the condition
of the people but for the sake of gaining domination over the people &
remaking them in their own image. They confronted the imperial regime
with a challenge that it had no way of repulsing short of employing the
kind of methods introduced later by Lenin. Reforms, whether those of
the 1860s, or those of 1905-06, only whetted the appetite of the radicals
& spurred them to still greater revolutionary excesses.

[--
Wow, this was very true in Miran.
Once the opposition leaders saw the green light for regime change, they just went
crazy with lust for power, completely forgetting the 'country'. Well, u could say
many never cared about the country anyway, coz they had been on the payroll of
Masters for years. But the fact remains that when they saw the green light & saw
that the old regime wasn't going to kill them, so they could get away with it,
they all became shojaa ane-qollaabi! Nothing the old regime did could save the day,
except for killing the ane-qollaabi-haa. So the old regime fell because it was too kind
to kill its own people. But during the fall of KIR, Miranians will see another difference
between the old & the new regime as far cruelty is concerned.

--]

Buffeted by peasant demands & under direct assault from the radical
intelligentsia, the monarchy had only one means of averting collapse, &
that was to broaden the base of its authority by sharing power with
conservative elements of society. Historic precedent indicates that
successful democracies have initially limited power-sharing to the upper
orders; these eventually came under pressure from the rest of the
population, with the result that their privileges turned into common
rights. Involving conservatives, who were far more numerous than
the radicals, in both decision making & administration would have forged
something of an organic bond between the government & society, assuring
the crown of support in the event of upheavals, &, at the same time,
isolating the radicals. Such a course was urged on the monarchy by some
far-sighted officials & private individuals. It should have been adopted
in the 1860s, at the time of the great reforms, but it was not. When
finally compelled in 1905 by a nationwide rebellion to concede a
parliament, the monarchy no longer had this option available, for the
combined liberal & radical opposition forced it to concede something
close to a democratic franchise. This resulted in the conservatives in
the Duma being submerged by militant intellectuals & anarchist peasants.

In sum, while the collapse of tsarism was not inevitable, it was made
likely by deep-seated cultural & political flaws that prevented the tsarist
regime from adjusting to the economic & cultural growth of the country,
flaws that proved fatal under the pressures generated by WWI. If the
possibility of such adjustment existed, it was aborted by the activities of
a belligerent intelligentsia bent on toppling the government & using Russia
as a springboard for world revolution.

[--
Not to mention Germany helping the radicals (Lenin) with arms & money.

But Miran being Miran has to always be different.
In sum, if the Masters didn't want a regime change, the opposition leaders of 78
hich gohi ham nemi tunestan bokhorand!

Amazing how the KK Khomeini too wanted to export his shit religion to the
whole world with total disregard to the majority of Muslims who didn't follow
his religion! Miranian gondeh guzi has no limits.

--]

It was cultural & political shortcomings of this nature that brought about
the collapse of tsarism, not "oppression" or "misery". ... Economic &
social difficulties did not contribute significantly to the revolutionary
threat that hung over Russia before 1917. Whatever grievances they
may have harbored-real & fancied- the "masses" neither needed nor
desired a revolution: the only group interested in it was the intelligentsia.
Stress on alleged popular discontent & class conflict derives more from
ideological preconceptions than from the facts at hand, namely from the
discredited idea that political developments are always & everywhere
driven by socioeconomic conflicts, that they are mere "foam" on the
surface of currents that really guide human destiny.

[--
Amen.
Not only Miranians had far more "oppression" & "misery" after 78, but they almost
lost the whole damn country. Lucky the Master's OIL was under their land, so they
saved the country!

To make things worst, even their "religion" got F*ed in the process & most of their
real good clergies were pushed out of the picture.

--]

p497-------------

Feb 1917 was not a "worker's revolution" : industrial labor played in it
the role of a chorus that reacted to & amplified the actions of the true
protagonist, the army. The mutiny of the Petrograd garrison stimulated
disorders among the civilian population unhappy over inflation & shortage.
The mutiny could've been contained had Nicholas chosen to quell it with
the same brutality Lenin & Trotsky employed 4 years later when faced
with the Kronshtadt rising & nationwide peasant rebellions. But Lenin's &
Trotsky's sole concern was holding on to power, whereas Nicholos cared
for Russia. When the generals & Duma politicians persuaded him that
he had to go to save the army & avert a humiliating capitulation, he
acquiesced. Had staying in power been his supreme objective, he could
easily have concluded peace with Germany & turned the army loose against
the mutineers. The record leaves no doubt that the myth of the tsar being
forced from the throne by the rebellious workers & peasants is just that.
The tsar yielded not to a rebellious populace but to generals & politicians,
& he did so from a sense of patriotic duty.
The social revolution followed rather than preceded the act of abdication.

[--
Bravo!

MJ Lenin was in Germany getting paid to set the country on fire while
living in luxury!

This too happened in Miran. The old regime chose not to butcher
pee-pole, but the KK Mullahs & the Goh Mojaahedin & Jendeyeh melli
brushed it off as weak & tried to pour more fuel over the fire to set the
whole god damn country on fire. The KK Khomeini even had some
Goh true-blue-no-bell Miranian set fire to a cinema, where 400 Miranians
were LOCKed in, to burn them all & put the blame on the old regime.
All this while many many Goh Miranians were getting paid by this/that
Master, like they always had been. Not to mention non-Miranians, hiding
in chaador behind the herd of Miranian gaav/olaaq, shooting at the
soldiers to force them shoot back.

By 1980 the shit had hit the fan, the facts were out about the filthy killer Mullahs
& the whole country was F*ed, but Miranians did NOTHING to save their country &
their future. They proved beyond any doubt what gaav/olaaq they always have been.

Miranian intelligentsia were forced to shut the F* up, or they saw that the Masters
wanted the KIR to be up, so they all went khaarej waiting for the next green-light
for the regime change in Miran, shouting cho-miran-lavaashak to make them feel good.

--]


The country at large- its political entities as well as its resources- became
the subject of duvan, the division of loot, which no one was strong enough
to stop until it had run its course.

Lenin rode to power on that anarchy, which he did much to promote.
He promised every discontented group what it wanted. ... In fact, all
these pledges ran contrary to his program & all were violated soon
after they had served their purpose, which was to undermine the provisional
government's efforts to stabilize the country. ... Lenin & Trotsky concealed
their bid for one-party dictatorship with slogans calling for the transfer
of power to the soviets ...

[--
The question is how the F* a Goh khaarej educated F*ing "mohandes"
Bazagaan could not have known what KK MF the Mullahs were, how
the asshole didn't know that KK Khomeini, having had Kasravi murdered,
could never ever have been anything but a KK khunkhaar dictator?!
It's impossible to believe that all the KK opposition leaders of 78 didn't
know. They did know, but they also knew that the Masters, after so many
years, had decided to remove Shah, so they put their F*ing EGO in
front & used the cattle of Miranian gaav/olaaq to get to power which
mattered more to them than anything else. So they all bullshitted &
gave all sorts of promises to get to power. They all would've been
killer bully dictators who would have butchered all who dared to oppose
them, after so many years of being on the pay-roll of the Masters &
craving for power.

Domination is part of the Goh culture of Miran. If u don't dominate, u will be
regarded as weak & bullies will walk all over u.

The so called "October revolution" was a classic coup d'etat. The
preparations for it were so clandestine that when Kamenev disclosed
in a newspaper interview a week before the event was to take place, that
the party intended to seize power, Lenin declared him a traitor & demanded
his expulsion. Genuine revolutions, of course, are not scheduled & cannot
be betrayed.
...one has to look closely at the events of Oct 1917 in Petrograd to find
the "masses" acting as spectators, ignoring Bolshevik appeals to storm
the winter palace, where sat elderly ministers of the provisional Gov
clad in overcoats, defended by youthful cadets, a battalion of women &
a platoon of invalids.

[--
Wow! I also remember the "mass cattle Miranian gaav-olaaq"
playing allaaho-akbar-baazi on their roof tops having a good time
partying, not having a f*ing clue they were being used to F* their own
country & lives. Mind you they only dared to do this after they found
that it would be 'safe' for them to do so. This is how the mass cattle
went to tazaahoraat too, they only did it after they knew it would
would be 'safe', & they did it for curiosity, too stupid to know what
goh-khori they were doing. While so many Goh qaaltaaq laat savage
street kids making a riot & destroying things & feeling important.

Once the killer Mullahs took over & proved they meant business by killing most of
opposition an-qollaabi, the pee-pole just shut the F* up & went back hiding in their
"andaruns", like they always did.

Lenin owes his historical prominence not to his statesmanship, which was
of a very inferior order, but to his generalship. His innovation, the reason
for his success, was militarizing policies. ... politicizing warfare enabled
him to seize power & then to hold on to it. It did not help him to build
a viable social & political order. He grew so accustomed to storming on
all "fronts" that even after asserting undisputed authority over soviet Russia
..., he had to invent ever new enemies to fight & destroy: now the church,
now the socialist-revolutionaries, now the intelligentsia. This belligerence
became a fixed feature of the communist regime, culminating in Stalin's
notorious "theory" that the closer communism approached final victory
the more intense grew social conflict- a notion that justified a bloodbath
of unprecedented ferocity.

The Bolsheviks ceased to be utopians when, once it had become obvious
the ideal was unattainable, they persisted in the attempt with resort to
unrestrained violence. ... For this reason they should be regarded not as
utopians but as fanatics: since they refused to admit defeat even after it
stared them in the face, they satisfied Santayana's definition of fanaticism
as redoubling one's efforts after forgetting one's aim.

... "merciless" violence, violence that strove for the destruction of every
actual & potential opponent, was for Lenin not only the most effective,
but the only way of dealing with problems.

[--
KK Khomeini brought out the violence, which is a major part of the
Goh culture of Miran, in Miranians & took it to new heights in the name
of Allah. The violence & corruption was so bad that many Goh Miranian
pro-KIR ane-qollaabi got turned off & pulled out of the system, but never
felt any guilt that it was THEY who gave rise to this monster & qaatel regime.
They just pulled out, many left for khaarej, either forgetting or hiding
behind Allah, saying that Allah will punish the evil Mullahs. Many, still
following their shit religion, never questioned what they did or what happened
or how could any God give rise to the monster KK Mullahs.

p501----------------

If Marxism means anything it means 2 propositions: that as capitalist
society matures it is doomed to collapse from inner contradictions, &
that this collapse("revolution") is effected by industrial labor ("the proletariat").
What do we see in Russia? a "socialist revolution" carried out in an
economically underdeveloped country in which capitalism was still in its
infancy, & power taken by a party committed to the view that the working
class left to its own devices is unrevolutionary. Subsequently, at every
stage of its history, the communist regime in Russia did whatever it had
to do to beat off challengers, without regard to Marxist doctrine, even as
it cloaked its actions with Marxist slogans. Lenin succeeded precisely
because he was free of the Marxist scruples that inhibited the Mensheviks.

[--
Wow, I'm speechless again!

1-
These asshole power hungry killer EGO maniacs get millions killed &
tortured & raped & starved to death, destroying a nation for over 70
years, but they were never ever F*ing communists?!!!
Even after they got smart enough to reject the KK Stalin, they still
continued the charade of "communism"!

2-
How the F* could Miranian Tudeh party be so F*ing stupid?!
OK, I can understand that their KK leaders were on the payroll, but
what about the others in the party? I could understand the idiot young
angry(from sexual frustration & the Goh culture) ane-qollaabi oqdei
"students" getting into the party to fix some of their oqdeh/urges &
serve their EGO or ..., but what about so many over 40 people in the party?

3-
In a way the KK Khomeini did the same! He used a shit version of
"Islam", which most Muslims in the world would completely reject, & used
it to gain POWER in Miran to create a killer dictatorship in the name
of Allah, whom most of its followers regard as Karim-Rahmaan/merciful !
He then used his power to destroy & butcher all opposition & destroyed
the country in the process, even before the stupid War, which his own holy
"brothers" started. And what did the cattle gaav/olaaq Miranians do? They
just either joined this killer regime, which was supposed to replace a "cruel"
regime, which was in reality much kinder & "caring", or left for Khaarej,
or just put up with the nightmare for over 25 F*ing years.

4--
I can't see how the old regime could be blamed. It was only created by
the "culture" over centuries of mismanagement. What about the
intellectuals, shouldn't knowledge add to their responsibilities?
After all the army didn't force the old regime out to take over, they
suggested creating a parliament to improve things. But the KK killer
intelligentsia, the power hungry bullies, did everything they could to
destroy the old regime & a nation, so that they could come to power &
completely change the nations in their own filthy image. Surely the
intellectuals should've seen it coming. But according to R Pipes they didn't
think the Bolsheviks could last long, & they didn't(well only 70 years), but they
sure did destroy the nation in over 70 years of terror.

5--
Now the good news.
If terror can't last for long & will eventually fail to rule in the long run, then
KIR will have to come down, even if the Masters don't bring it down.

--]

p503---------

According to Miliukov, bolshevism had 2 aspects: one is international;
the other is genuinely Russian. The international aspect of bolshevism
is due to its origin in a very advanced European theory. Its purely
Russian aspect is chiefly concerned with its practice, which is deeply
rooted in Russian reality &, far from breaking with the "ancient regime",
reasserts Russian's past in the present.

Berdiaev, who viewed the revolution primarily in spiritual terms, denied
that Russia even had a revolution: "all of the past is repeating itself
& acts only behind new masks".


[--
I can bet that once the KIR falls, many Miranians will come out & say that
Miran didn't have a revolution. I know I've been saying this, but these
people will be from the KIR regime itself, including many Goh Mullahs.
KIR will fall, coz if communism couldn't last over 70 years, surely KIR
couldn't last over 40. Specially when u consider Masters making money by
changing regimes like yoyo, it should be happening soon.

Tsarist patrimonialism rested on 4 pillars: 1, autocracy, that is,
personal rule unconstrained by either constitution or representative
bodies; 2, the autocrat's ownership of the country's resources, which
is to say, the virtual absence of private property; 3, the autocrat's
right to demand unlimited services from his subjects, resulting in the
lack of either collective or individual rights; & 4, state control of
information. A comparison of tsarist rule at its Zenith with the
communist regime as it looked by the time of Lenin's death reveals
unmistakable affinities.

To begin with, the autocracy. Traditionally, the Russian monarch
concentrated in his hands full legislative & executive powers, & exercised
them without interference from external bodies. He administered with
the help of a service nobility & a bureaucracy that owed allegiance to
his person rather than to the nation or the state. Lenin from the first
day in office instinctively followed this model. Although as a concession
to the ideal of democracy he gave the country a constitution &
representative bodies, they performed purely ceremonial functions, since
the constitution was not binding on the communist party, the country's
true ruler, & the parliament was not elected but hand-picked by the same
party. In the performance of his duties, Lenin resembled the most
autocratic of the tsars, Peter I & Nicholas I, in that he insisted on
personally attending to the most trifling details of state affairs, as
if the country were his private domain.

In all these instances [-- book gives examples of the 4 aspects--] the
Bolsheviks found models not in the writings of Marx, Engels, or other
western socialists, but in their own history: not so much the history
described in books but that which they had experienced in their own
persons fighting tsarism under the regime of Reinforced & Extraordinary
Safeguard instituted in the 1880s to deter the revolutionary intelligentsia.
These practices they justified with arguments borrowed from socialist
literature that gave them a mandate to behave with a brutality &
ruthlessness that far exceeded anything known under tsarism, for tsarism
was inhibited by the desire to be viewed favorably by Europe, whereas
the Bolsheviks treated Europe as an enemy.

Once they(Bolsheviks) rejected democracy- & this they did conclusively
in Jan 1918 by dispersing the Constituent Assembly- they had no choice
but to govern autocratically.

[--
Just F*ing beautiful, a group of asshole bully killers, took over the
whole F*ing country & got millions killed & butchered & tortured &
starved & bullied for over 70 years, in the name of equality & justice
for all; but in reality instead of justice they created just-piss &
the worst & most cruel regime Russia ever had, brainwashing the whole
world that Russian people rose up against the old regime to make "revolution".

Well, this is awfully close to events in Miran. In fact it was far worst
in Miran because the KK Mullahs, using the name of a merciful-God, even
destroyed God & religion in Miran!

As for democracy, the KK Khomeini, after giving all sorts of BS promises
& coming to power, said "democracy would lead to prostitution"!

Well, can a Goh culture create anything but Goh religion & Goh pee-pole?
--]

Nor is it surprising that the Russian revolution should have ended up
where it did. revolutionaries may have the most radical ideas of remaking
man & society, but they must build the new order with human material
molded by the past. For that reason, sooner or later, they succumb to
the past themselves. "revolution" derives from the Latin revolvere,
"to revolve", a concept originally applied to the motions of the planets,
& used by medieval astrologers to explain sudden & unexpected turns in
human events. And objects that revolve do return to their starting point.

[--
WOW!
Even the French "revolution" resulted in massive blood shed & cruelty &
execution & turned into an "empire" with an Emperor on top!

I can bet that France would've been far better off without its "revolution".

"evolution" is far better than "revolution".
--]

Judged in terms of its own aspirations, the communist regime was a
monumental failure: it succeeded in one thing only-staying in power.
but since for Bolsheviks power was not an end in itself but means to an
end, its mere retention does not qualify the experiment as a success.
The Bolsheviks made no secret of their aims: toppling everywhere regimes
based on private property & replacing them with a worldwide union of
socialist societies. They succeeded nowhere outside the boundaries of
what had been the Russian empire in spreading their regime until the end
of WW2, when the red army stepped into the vacuum created in eastern
Europe by the surrender of Germany, the Chinese communists seized control
of their country from the Japanese, & communist dictatorships, aided
by Moscow, established themselves in a number of recently emancipated
colonial areas.

[--
KIR too was a "monumental failure".
It could not export Shit Islam to the whole world, not even with their attack & capture
of Makkah! KIR destroyed the country & culture & religion & economy & made most
of Muslims government of the world hostile to it.
It also did a lot of damage to image of "Islam".

--]

Once it had proven impossible to export communism, the Bolsheviks in 1920s
decided themselves to constructing a socialist society at home. This
endeavor failed as well. Lenin had expected through a combination of
expropriations & terror to transform his country in a matter of months
into the world's leading economic power: instead, he ruined the economy
he had inherited. .. he saw political dissent ... workers turned their
backs on the communists & the peasants rebelled ...

... even terror proved useless in overcoming the ingrained habits of an ancient nation.

Communism failed because it preceded from the erroneous doctrine of the
enlightenment, perhaps the most pernicious idea in the history of thought,
that man is merely a material compound, devoid of either soul or innate
ideas, & as such a passive product of an infinitely malleable social
environment. This doctrine made it possible for people with personal
frustrations to project them onto the society & attempt to resolve them
there rather than in themselves.
...Even if subjected to the fiercest dressage, he cannot pass on the
lessons he has been forced to learn to his children, who come into this
world ever fresh, asking questions that are supposed to have been settled
once & for all. To demonstrate this commonsensical truth required tens of
millions of dead, incalculable suffering for the survivors, & the ruin
of a great nation.

[--
Not to mention the fact that every new generation will always look down
at the old & will try to find new things/fashion/ideas to be different
& "superior" to the old one.
After centuries of brainwashing, not only Mullahs could not even remove
Noruz from Miran, but eventually people like Kasravi rose up against
them, whom they had murdered. However, not only far more Miranian
intellectuals speak against the shit-Islam today, but far more
non-intellectuals Miranians speak out against the filthy Mullahs today
than ever before.
Mullahs have proven once & for all what KK khunkhaar M*Jendeh they are
& always have been. But the credit should go to the Goh culture than created
such a shit region with filthy killer clergies.

--]

The question of how such a flawed regime succeeded in maintaining itself
in power for so long certainly cannot be met with the answer that, whatever
we may think of it, it had the support of its own people.
Anyone who explains the durability of a government not based on an explicit
mandate of its citizens by its alleged popularity must apply the same
rationale to every other enduring authoritarian regime, including tsarism
-which survived not 7 decades but 7 centuries- & then still face the
unenviable task of having to explain how tsarism, presumably so
popular, collapsed in a matter of days.

...the early communist slogan "we will drive mankind to happiness by force!".

[--
Wow!
KK Khomeini must have thought that he could "drive the mankind to heaven
by force", in fact he did force many to their death & sent them to hell,
but he only managed to create HELL in Miran.

--]

Gorky, who knew Lenin intimately, agreed with Mussolini that he regarded
human beings as a metalworker regarded ore. His was but an extreme
expression of an attitude common to radical intellectuals everywhere.

[--
I'd say this is far worst in Miran where the word for the peasants &
laborer, dehaati & amaleh, are used as insults. Where the angry
in-tell-egg-chew-alls have used "savaad" to establish their superiority,
forcing others to call them doktor & mohandes, to highlight their
superiority, while using many as slave/kolfat/nokar in their houses.
Bullshitting about democracy & equality to serve their EGO but never
treating others as "equal". A culture, where compassion & kindness to
others only exists in poetry/theory, where only power & superiority over
others matter in reality; where if you don't dominate others, you will be
dominated
.
--]

It runs contrary to the morally superior as well as more realistic principle
of Kant's that man must never be used as merely means for the ends of
others, but must always be regarded also as an end in himself. Seen from
this vantage point, the excesses of the Bolsheviks, their readiness to
sacrifice countless lives for their own purposes, were a monstrous violation
of both ethics & common sense. They ignored that the means- the well-being
& even the lives of people- are very real, whereas the ends are always
nebulous & often unattainable.

[--
It was far worst with the KK Mullahs. Not only they used a shit version
of Islam, which is totally against the original principles & logic of
Islam. But they destroyed the good image of what was left after centuries
of brainwashing & proved what monsters they were, forcing any 'good' Mullah
to shut up or rot in prison. They even destroyed the economy & the country
in process. No matter how you look at it, it was completely against any
logic or sense. So not only their shit ideals was "unattainable", it was/is
completely destructive & even against the religion they claimed to follow.

--]

The moral principle that applies in this case has been formulated by Karl
Popper: "everyone has the right to sacrifice himself for a cause he deems
deserving. No one has the right to sacrifice others of incite others to
sacrifice themselves for an idea".

[--
Bravo!

eyb be rendaan makon ey zaahede paakizeh seresht,
ke gonaahe degaraan bar to nakhaahand nevesht.

I always find it incredible how some Islamic leaders talk young people
into suicide missions, but never tell their own kids/relatives to do it.
If nothing could be more important than being in heaven with God, why
don't they do it or tell their own kids to do it?

--]

...because modern society is so "vast & complicated" & therefore so
difficult to grasp, it is neither proper nor feasible to impose on it
patterns of conduct, let alone try to remake it. What cannot be
comprehended cannot be controlled. The tragic & sordid history of the
Russian revolution- such as it really was, not as it appears to the
imagination of those foreign intellectuals for whom it was a noble
attempt to elevate mankind- teaches that political authority must never
be employed for ideological ends. It is best to let people be. In the
words attributed to Oscar Wilde to a Chinese sage: there is such a thing
as leaving mankind alone- but there never was such a thing as governing
mankind.
