The USSR was heroic as fuck in defeating fascism in Germany during WWII and sending aide to Spain during its civil war, but unfortunately, no, it did not "win" the Cold War. Marxist Socialist Republics like Vietnam and the DPRK defended themselves from American imperialism, but they did not win. The forces in power are still in power and the oppressed masses of the earth are still oppressed. Communism did not win. Not yet.
Stalin was hard as fuck. He was one of the last great emperors, an ice cold purveyor of eternal struggle against the divisive forces of kikery and shiling. Even if the USSR lost on an economical level, it has achieved a moral victory.
Stalin was killed few weeks after purim, just when he uncovered a trecherous jewish scheme called the doctor's plot. Look it up.
>>39404893 As much as I agree with the core sentiment of your statement, I think Stalin would take aback at being referred to as "one of the last great emperors." Imperialism, fascism and capitalism are our enemies, comrade. We shouldn't forget the bureaucratic errors of the later Soviet Union under revisionists like Khrushchev. We should remember that Stalin dismissed Stalinism and hated any blind admiration of individuals, especially of himself.

>>39405163 This is a valuable opinion, comrade. I still am at awe of his unbelievable heroism in the face of evil. Many an atrocity might be mentioned. Alas, collectivization was brutal and unforgiving, but it is the relentless commitment to socialist values spurred by Stalin's charisma that kept the movement going, kept it alive through trials and tribulations. May he rest in peace.
when? The Bolshevik Party was still very much in charge. Stalin helped defeat authoritative regimes that bourgeoisie nations like the U.S funded. (such as Francoist Spain). The USSR arrested criminals and fascists that tried to use the revolution to get power. Nazis, capitalists, anarchist terrorists, American spies, religious powers, etc., all tried to destroy the Soviet Union. What other place do these people deserve to go other than prison?
>arrested fellow communists?
No. You're referring to revisionists like Trotsky who wanted to take a liberal attitude towards a revolutionary communist goal. These people who took their own interests above the interests of the starving masses and the workers deserved prison. How could you possibly defend their actions?

No I'm sure you're right and all MILLIONS killed by Stalin and his totalitarian government, even those outside the USSR whose soverignty was snatched, whose business were destroyed, whose families were separated, whose fathers were conscripted were all justifiable killed.
>>39406264 >mfw more Russians died in Russia than even existed at the time.
>Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians welcomed the nazis as liberators from the USSR.
No. Just, no. Anti-revolutionaries fought against Soviet expansion because they wanted to keep power over the areas they governed, even if that meant having a peasantry class that does most of the work. They were also extremely religious and didn't want to have their places of delusion torched down.
>Nazi invasion into their countries would've meant genetic cleansing for all of them. >lol Nazis "welcomed as liberators" like the U.S in Iraq.
>>39406657 >ignoring all the millions who died under centuries of Czarist rule. Yeah, that was fine.
Ok, how exactly was the Soviet Union "totalitarian"? It had a people's party which educated members of society were a part of and from which they took major decisions, not unlike any other republic at the time. Stalin didn't have supreme control. Your assertion of "totalitarian" is totally false and is pure propaganda.
No, seriously, there WERE American spies, anarchists, fascists, Nazis, counterrevolutionaries, within the USSR. Or did the Menshevik party not exist? Did no one ever try to assassinate Lenin? There WERE enemies of the state in the USSR as there was (and is) in the U.S. Just as capitalists were arrested/deported in the USSR, communists were arrested or deported in the U.S.
I won't deny that there was some unwarranted violence, but this is with every revolution.
Most of the millions who died, died defending the Soviet Union against the fascist threat of Nazi Germany and the United States.
I am from a former soviet satellite state and can't believe the propaganda the jews have been feeding to the west. 90 fucking million? You must be comatose to come up with estimates like that. And living in communist countries wasn't that bad. It wasn't great but it sure as hell beats being run by the fucking nazi wanted to exterminate all slavs.
>>39407036 anyone alive who remembers the USSR, remembers the decadent period under Khrushchev and takes that as representative of the massive change the nation went through as it went from agrarian (with a Czar who held most power) to industrial, with the people who held most of the power. No one alive today can recall the turmoil of those days and how drastic and truly revolutionary this shift was. But loyal Soviets did exist and they did love their country, they worked for the communist goal, wrote privately of life under socialism, and fought the forces of oppression as best they could.
