History of the Hungarian People’s Republic (PART 6: The Social-Democrats and Communists Merge 1948)

In the course of the revolutionary movement in Hungary the Social-Democrats had very noticeably split into a left-wing and a right-wing.

The Social-Democrat Left-Wing supported collaboration with the Communists and had become closer and…

Analyzing the Moscow Trials

Also check out my three articles explaining the Moscow Trials from beginning to end (part 1, part 2, part 3). Apparently communist historian Grover Furr has a book called “Moscow Trials as Evidence”.

Soviet environmentalism in the Stalin era

Introduction There is a persistent myth that the USSR in the Stalin era was harshly anti-environmentalist. The research of historian Stephen Brain convincingly debunks this myth.

History of the Hungarian People’s Republic (PART 4: The 1947 elections)

These days, anti-communists often claim that in the Hungarian parliamentary election of 1947 there was some kind of election fraud, just like they claimed about the 1945 elections. However, there is absolutely no proof of this. On the contrary:“Such newspaper correspondents, however, as those representing Le Monde in Paris and the Times and Herald…

Why was Lenin’s body mummified? Who decided it?

“Nothing would be easier and more obvious than to imagine that upon Lenin’s death his successors— with Stalin in the lead— quickly gathered in a back room and immediately understood the utility of preserving, displaying, and worshiping his body. A top-down manufactured cult of Lenin would then provide a substitute religion for the peasants…

Hardly a house was intact and thousands of soldiers…

Lev Vygotsky and the “antipedology campaign” in Soviet education

The legacy of Lev Vygotsky There’s an anti-communist myth in the west that Lev Vygotsky was the “best soviet psychologist”, but he was suddenly “banned” or “purged” without justification – or something along those lines. In fact, that is not quite true. Vygotsky of course was never “purged”, arrested or even denounced in his life…

Short critique of Trotskyism

In terms of theory, Trotskyism is a form of revisionism. It tries to change aspects of Marxism-Leninism and replace them with Trotskyism. However, ‘orthodox trotskyists’ (the original type of trotskyists) also agree with Marxism-Leninism on many issues. Trotsky created only a few new ‘theories’: the idea that Socialism can only be built if it…
