Which was worse, Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union?

April 26, 2018

The war unleashed by Nazi Germany against the Soviet Union in 1941 was an inevitable historical event that must have occurred regardless of the political regime in that country, General Majmut Gareev, president of the Russian Academy of Military Sciences, recently stated.

Hitler’s plans and those of German politics that sought to expand into the East for a long time were deeply rooted and, as a result, aggression against the USSR had to occur under all circumstances,” Gareev said. According to the general, Germany’s expansionist policy was one of the main reasons why it waged war against the USSR and not the threat that the communist regime was supposed to pose to the countries of Europe.

Does communism have any future?

March 29, 2018

In my opinion, the future of Communism is very bleak if communists all over the world, with special emphasis on those of Europe, do not set themselves the necessary tasks to reconstitute Communism politically, ideologically and organizationally from its very foundations and well adapted to the current stage of development of capitalism, in its imperialist phase already in full rot.

The Revolutionary Cycle that began with the Great Socialist Revolution of October 1917 in Russia is over in defeat. It is now time to close this cycle properly from its full understanding, as an essential part of the tasks of that reconstitution to which I refer.

Angela Merkel’s political crisis

December 7, 2017

Merkel is no longer untouchable. Among its co-religionists there is one who openly doubts that it will be the best candidate to the chancellery among the conservatives for the generals of autumn 2017. The two consecutive electoral defeats of his party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), in two regional elections have highlighted the erosion of what was, for more than a decade, the undisputed leader of his party, Germany and the European Union. His management of the refugee crisis – his most controversial and perhaps most personal decision – is taking a huge political toll on him: a divided party, a hole in the ballot box and the rise of the ultra-right. The end of the Merkel Age begins?

It was on the night of 4-5 September last year that the chancellor agreed, in a long telephone conversation with her Austrian counterpart, Werner Faymann, to keep the borders open and to allow the tens of thousands of blocked refugees in Hungary to travel to Germany. The wave of asylum seekers, mainly Syrians, Afghans and Iraqis, surpassed one million people in 2015.
