centuries of ties to hungry and many common noble families my father hadn't even reached the age of ten after the outbreak of hostilities the government of hungry maintained a formal neutrality in practice because will and have promised to restore to hungry some of the terror trees taken from her off to World War one Budapest supported Germany and eventually declared war on both the Soviet Union and its allies but my only nineteen forty four the regent of the kingdom of Hungary a moment please hold the was no longer willing to be an accomplice to Hitler's third Reich and the

like the millennials we see on the streets of Hong Kong today who waving our flag decided to resist dictatorship in a silent protest they marched to a statue of a great Polish hero in one of the squares in Budapest on a cold October night they did this in sympathy with the workers who was striking in Poland against the communist regime that after that when they saw that it wasn't just students it was workers from the factories who joined them in this rebellious quiet protest they started to walk down the largest Boulevard in Budapest and as the people who have been suffering under eighteen years of communist dictatorship off to the private **** occupation they watched them from their storied buildings they watch them from their apartment balconies and they knew that something was happening they took the flag that the communists had given them the trickle of the red white and green Hungarian flag on which the communists had imposed the hammer and sickle over the ideology and the residents of Budapest cocked out the center of the flag to remove the call misspelled emblem in a sign of resistance and hung it out their windows so began the glorious freedom fight of nineteen fifty six the people would resist the Soviet occupation they would take up arms against the oppressor and eventually capture the Soviet tank with which they would drive to the political prison in Budapest break down the gates the rest will kill all the communist prison guards and then liberate all the prisoners of conscience inside my father included today is the anniversary of that

"But the reason I found portrait more effecting and more effective is that while he did belittle the man. We had the rest of the book and the rest of the book is about the utter horror and. Human debasement that Stalin was was perpetrating on on his fellow citizens. And so I thought that contrast was quite powerful, and it in I found that quite I think it went on to long, but I didn't find that. It wasn't just a psychological ex, you know, a catharsis in my view. But that's that's neither here nor there. Let's let's just wanted to get that on get that in. Tell me why do you think there's a renewal of interest in social sin as you point out, historically, credibly important? But at the same time as you point out, the Soviets has been gone for over quarter of a century, the Stoorikhel lessons, it seemed to be no longer relevant. I disagree. But many would argue that there's no threat of labor camps. As you say there wasn't even the threat of mass imprisonment or execution after after the death of Stalin on the surface. You could argue solstice is just distort curiosity important figures struggled in shows the courage of one man yet. I think it's more than that. What are your thoughts? You know soldier needs is going to stay relevant Ross. And the reason he's going to stay relevant is because it's not just the system that's gone. Not just the horrors that he described which are now hopefully, dead and buried the way Stalin, his dead and buried. But because he tapped into something larger he tapped into this hat organize our politics when countries have different cultures. One of the things we've discovered about globalization about integrating the world economically. Is that countries still have their cultures and their identities? And that these matter and that people often, welcome economic integration, but not necessarily at the expense either of their own well-being economically or of what they value in cultural terms in identity terms, and so sold neat sin was a head of the curve in speaking to those issues, he was arguing many years before the Soviet regime fell that the west could not universalize. Itself that the is the two Sion's which made the west what it is and from which soldier needs benefitted tremendously. Living in freedom owning private property publishing without censorship. He understood those values he appreciated those values, but hey, didn't think every country's history tradition and culture was amenable that that combination that package was a manageable to the same institutions the countries had national traditions national institutions which had to be taken into account, and so the post Soviet for him which has said he was thinking about well before the Soviet regime collapsed in nineteen ninety one was a matter not of westernization per se. He wanted some measure of local rule local self-rule democracy at the local level, but he wanted to marry that with a strong centralized power in Russia because he felt that that was part of the Russian tradition. He wanted us spiritual renewal in Russia. He wanted a country based on reality, not solely a predominantly based on the law. He wanted many things which people in the west didn't understand and was one of the reasons behind his difficult reception. Having been hailed as this great courageous dissident who held black in the Soviet regime. He was then seen as a bizarre nineteenth century reactionary figure who criticize the west in its values and is the Touche's. It didn't understand the west but affect. The kind of liberal condescension the attempt to pose a single worldview or single political system across the globe. Which we've seen backfire in our lifetimes that was something soldier Niessen worried about and he preceded and so he became a figure. Who fit in well with the post nineteen Ninety-one post nineteen nineties. In fact, mood in Russia and his works are assigned in high school in Russia today by the official federal curriculum in Russia. And in addition, he can be read in the west the same way that we read holocaust literature. We, of course, hope that something like that never happens. Again, what happened to the Jews under Nazi rule? But yet we still read the holocaust literature and Phil speaks to us because it's about who we are.

"Now once again, it can make you feel good. But to portray that regimes operatives those around Stalin when he died Beria mauling, call Moltov Khrushchev cog, Novic to portray them as idiots as venal corrupt politicians like we would find I don't know in in the urban political machine of any major city right graft and bribes and favors to portray them as corrupt and venal in that way. And then as not very intelligent is to miss, of course, how that system could have arisen in the first place and how it could have functioned. If everyone was so stupid, and if everyone was merely corrupt the Soviet regime never would have happened the people who ran the Soviet regime when not geniuses, but they weren't buffoons. They were blinkered ideologically. But they were affective administrators in addicted to'real regime in addict to'real way. And so the film for me full short as a portrait of the reality there. I do recognize it once again as an entertainment, and it may be harsh to judge it in historical terms, rather than as a piece of entertainment. However as a piece of entertainment at full short from me precisely because you can do satire well of a regime that big, but it's a little one dimensional ultimately in Nucci when he does this about a democratic a western political system, the US system, the British. System. It works much better. The stakes are lower because the political system doesn't matter as much and also because they don't have that monstrosity that evil on a mass scale that these officials perpetrated I wish cells Niessen had done better with his Stalin. But I knowledge that he probably derive some pleasure from being able to ridicule Stalin and print. I would make it distinction between the two in the following way between between social portrait of Stalin and the movie portrait in the death of Stalin movie. I don't know if this is accurate or not. But in in the movie, I will not there will be no spoilers here. But the opening scene I found quite quite powerful. And and creepy it's a concert seen. It did capture some of the tried to be humorous about it. But it did capture some of the utter abject fear that people had. Of being on the wrong side of of of Stalin, and in it tried to be it didn't work for me is that but it tried to temper the buffoonery with periodic gunshots.
