Fading Personality Cult

Rehabilitating Stalin-Hitler Pact


The critics of Stalinist Russia across the world are at pains to see how the return of the Soviet Prodigal is being welcomed by a large number of Russians. With every passing day more and more people are refusing to disown former Soviet Union. Even Vladimir Putin, the most notorious capitalist roader of post-Soviet Russia wants to rehabilitate Stalin's historic pact with Hitler. Stalin saved Russia and the world at large from Nazi Germany and no amount of anti-Stalin propaganda by the West and their Russian agents would erase the role Stalin's Russia played to halt the Nazi march and save the humanity from barbarism of Hitler. If Stalin-Hitler pact is rehabilitated, it is a matter of time that Stalin would be rehabilitated with full honour and glory in Russia, rather former Soviet Union. People look too eager to correct their past mistakes and get back what they have lost—the first socialist state.

One pet allegation against Stalin was that he was a dictator, comparable only to Hitler or Mussolini. They accused both Lenin and Stalin of 'authoritarian despots'. Of all things under the sun both Lenin and Stalin were dubbed as autocrats who built a totalitarian state in place of Tzarist autocracy.

Ironically the 'totalitarian state' of Soviet Union was free from unemployment, people used to enjoy good standard of living and peaceful life. The exaggerated myth of personality cult is fading and people, even young people are listening.

In the "totalitarian" Soviet Union, the unemployment rate was "zero", 100% of the population of Soviet Russia were provided with work. This is one of the signs of totalitarianism—the entire population of the country is totally provided with work and a salary that is sufficient for a normal life, as well as free housing, medical care, education and further on the list.

Moreover, in the USSR there was such a thing as "continuous work experience", which gave a number of benefits, and most people tried not to interrupt it. To do this, it was enough only when leaving one job to get another job within a month, and in some cases—for example, when moving from the far north—for 2 months. And imagine, for anyone it was not a problem—to get a job within a month?! Simply, the supposedly ineffective power was interested in its economic power, and therefore, in the fact that everyone worked for its economic power. From current government officials, one can often hear about superfluous people who do not fit into the market, and judging by the level of unemployment and employment in completely useless jobs, the "superfluous people" are now the majority. Someone, probably, want to say, "they paid a penny", "they lived like slaves", "they went in formation". Of course, this is a "penny" if the average wage of a worker in the USSR was 4 times less than the salary of the CPSU Secretary General of the USSR KGB. But what then is the modern salary of the few workers who miraculously survived the market occupation, or other ordinary aliens of the Russian Federation, if government officials and oligarchs have hundreds of millions or billons, and ordinary people have 12, 15 or 20 thousand? Someone does not believe, thinks I'm lying about the fact that the salary is only 4 times less than the highest salary in the country? Well then, look at the notes on party cards of the Secretary general of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Chairman of the KGB of the USSR, their salary was 800 Rubles/month, and the average worker had about 200 Rubles/month. Skilled workers received 300 and even 400 rubles, and in hazardous industries—for example casters or miners—and all 500 Rubles/month.

This is not ideal, Lenin and Stalin wanted to build a completely different country, and their salary was equal to the salary of a worker at that time, but still this is not at all what now, when the places, billions on offshore accounts and yachts alone, are forgoing due to the fact that others do not know how to collect a child for school with a salary of 12 thousand per month. Well, as slaves go in formation, see the following pictures.

Their tired and anxious faces leave no doubt that they are slaves. You can immediately see that they only think about how to pay for housing and communal services tariffs, to raise children for school if there is no money for school uniforms, and to live to see the next salary without starving to death. And yet imaging, in a totalitarian USSR the worker was not afraid of anything. Nothing at all—no dismissal, no boss, no Rosgvard, no police, and all the more so since tomorrow he will have nothing to pay for housing and communal services and he will be cut off Comments. 'Social equality was not a revelry of, the luxurious life of officials. Confidence in the future was not fear for the future. There was tree housing, not a bonded mortgage. (Only in the late USSR did food become worse.). Yes, processions, slogans and exaggeration of achievements were also there, but this is still there, and more and more every day.
