Russia Examines Its Past

Stalin and Mind Control

Many, many years ago, when I was still married and living in Saskatoon, my husband's brother and his wife also lived in Saskatoon. On one occasion her mother came to Canada for a visit.

The wife and, of course, her mother were citizens of the USSR. The brother, who was a member of the Iraqi Communist Party, had fled to the Soviet Union from Baghdad during one of the periods in which Saddam Hussein was attacking commies who were working against the Ba'athist regime, and secured a job in Moscow as a translator of technical literature. The wife's father had taught communism at a university in Moscow. The brother and his wife had later emigrated to Canada.  She eventually went back to Russia, but he stayed and became a Canadian citizen.

During the mother's visit I remember a conversation in our living room after hosting a dinner for them. My ex asked the older lady who she thought had been the best leader of the USSR. What she said stunned us. She replied that the greatest president they had ever had was Stalin. The series "Stalin and Mind Control" (linked above) will illustrate why we were both so astonished as well as how easy it is for a government to terrorize its citizens, a practice that Saddam Hussein was in the process of perfecting against his own citizens.

One of the videos in my previous entry - The History of Political Correctness - draws the many connections between today's leftist causes, the USSR and the history of communism. This includes why and how children are targets of indoctrination, the role universities so willingly play through the multitude of phony disciplines practicing "critical theory" (see also "Indoctrination U"), and especially how the doctrine of political correctness became so prevalent in today's "victim" industries, such as environmentalism, feminism, strident anti-Americanism, "black studies" and other special "victims" studies. We see this in the modern Israeli Apartheid nonsense so prevalent in our universities, in the dreck that comes out of Hollywood and in Canada's Indian Industry, too, and of course, in the fiasco emanating from Ann Coulter's attempt to speak at the University of Ottawa and our political correctness enforcers, the Human Rights regimes.

So many of today's youth are Stalin's willing accomplices, but because of their age, they know nothing about the communist era and are not likely to learn much about Stalin's butchery from many of the professors in a host of university departments across the Western world.  Stalin was responsible for the twentieth century's biggest genocide. I could go on, but I'll leave it at that.  Suffice it to say that the impact of Stalinist Russia is still very much with us, not only in Russia, but in the rest of the world as well, and we have a long road ahead before it is eliminated.
