The Rise of Leon Trotsky & Communism

"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with

"What the book does is it starts with the real way this came about is Stalin started with literary poisoning He started with secret poisoning using anthrax and he would target individual people and kill them And he thought this was such a great thing He started a huge bioweapons facility still in operation Today under food at saratov and the Soviet Union west of east of Moscow and another one in kattenburg and in the urals These both leaked just described in the book The one of you Chapman killed over a thousand people and they blamed it on tainted meat If that sounds familiar those bioweapons labs expanded into China And in the Putin period Putin has lighted them all off again So they're in full operation Of course as the book describes in 1977 China was involved in developing a vaccine to a flu that existed only in its own lab And that leaked and what worldwide I had the 1977 flu And it was pretty much what is very likely to have happened again in Wuhan China in 2019 You're a great lawyer I start off with the idea sort of rest it's a lot of which are the same speaks for itself When you have a terrible virus that exists nowhere at all in nature and it appears right on the doorstep of a bio war lab that counts for me for a lot And then the Chinese killed the Doctor Who actually discovered it after charging with revealing state secrets Destroyed all the records as a lawyer when I get a guide destroying all the records I understand that That means that the evidence they contain is still bad that even the fact of destruction is not as bad as what you've learned from them And so we cover the Wuhan lab in the book

Tucker Carlson: Biden Says 'MAGA Crowd' Is Worse Than Stalin & Co.

"Listen to Tucker Carlson's really smart analysis of Biden's awful smear. Just today, Biden declared that people who insist on voting for things are not only wrong, they're the single greatest threat facing the United States. People who still believe in yesterday's understanding of democracy where they have power are more dangerous Joe Biden said than Al-Qaeda, the weather underground, even the Nazi Party. These people are terrorists. And you know what we do to terrorists. Watch. This is about a lot more than abortion. What happens if you have changed the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can't be in classrooms with other children? Is that legit under the way that the decision is written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this maga crowd is really the most extreme political organization that's existed in American history. So everything about that is a lot, hard to believe that's the president of the United States. Of course, it's not a decision. It's an opinion. And that opinion says explicitly this reasoning applies only to roe versus wade and abortion, and it should not be construed as applying to anything else. It says that flat out, if you read it, you would know that he didn't. Clearly. So what he said is a lie, but here's the line that you should never forget. And we're quoting. This maggot crowd, which is the tens of millions of people who voted for Donald Trump, is really we're quoting the most extreme political organization that has existed in history. In history, all human history, which is to say, worse than Hitler, worse than Stalin worse than Mao. It's hard to believe he's talking about tens of millions of American citizens, but he is. And you should know that no American president ever has talked about his own people like this or even considered talking about his own people like this. It is shocking that any president would and he just did.

Sec. Robert Wilkie on the Fleeting Neutrality of Finland and Sweden

"We are back with former secretary of veterans affairs in the Trump administration, Robert wilkie, senior national security contributor to newsmax. That's actually wilkie. You live breathe and sleep geopolitics. You love it as much as I do. For somebody who's followed European security matters for decades, you know, I thought I'd go to my deathbed with Sweden and Finland as forever neutral, like Switzerland, and the announcement that the likely to deposit the articles of accession to the alliance by the end of June. How historic is this and how much of a massive failure for Putin? Absolutely. Do you want to be the Russian leader whose gift to history is the rearmament of Germany. And the removal of neutrality status from Finland and Sweden. That's what is going to happen. I'll give you an example of what is what has taken place in Finland. Reuters did a survey a couple of years ago, two years ago. And Finns were asked if they were ready to kill Russians. 78% told Reuters, we are going to kill, we can kill them today. Explain why that isn't flash in the past. That is not the question. This is hundreds of years of history really going back to the days, even before Peter the great. When the Russians moved into the Baltics moved into what we now know as Scandinavia, Finland fought a very bloody war. Both against Lenin and also against Stalin. The Russians finally overcame the Finns in the 1940s just by sheer weight of numbers. But they lost the equivalent of an entire army in the snow. And usually this is individual snipers, more units.

Ryan Helfenbein: The Extremes of Sexuality Is Being Pushed Leftward

"About what's actually happening, you've probably talked about this on your program, the overton window, where sort of the extremes in our culture of sexuality is continuing to be pushed in a leftward direction. And I don't mean liberal. I mean left, right? Where it no longer even represents humanity. I mean, it goes way beyond the pale. The idea is deconstruction, really at the end of the day, if you have a society that is a sexless society. If you have a society that has taken puberty blockers, had breast removed, as actually surgically has harmed themselves, scarred themselves. This is a generation that becomes the shock troops of a cultural revolution that brings the country beyond the brink of recovery. We can not come back from that. Perceptive friend of mine who was noticing these things. His name is rod Martin. He said, look, you look at a generation and you say, this is back in the 1960s. Get them to hate mom and dad, right? Protest movement. Eventually, though, what happens? They get married. They have kids of their own. And then they realize, aha, mom and dad, we're not that dumb, right? If you get a generation, though, Eric, to hate themselves, they destroy their own bodies, there is no way to come back from that. They never experienced the joy of marriage, they never experienced the joy of children, right? Like irreparably harmed. I mean, but by the grace of God, the only way is Jesus saves, right? So culturally, people are so scarring maligning all of that to where there is no way to bring that back. That's what's happening though. It's sort of the fertile fallacy that's being planted in education at 5, 6, 7, 8. You go all the way back to Stalin, give me your children for four years, right? It's literally that thing. If they can start that early and create enough confusion in children, they'll never be a part of their parents forever. And that is when

How Did Morgan Zegers Become the Anti-Communist She Is Today?

"How does a 25 year old born in America end up being as anti communist? Some who have listened have heard your story before, but it was a long time ago. So share with us your incredible college story that kind of lit the fuse. Yeah, so I went to American university in Washington D.C. and my roommate was a communist with a poster of Mao Zedong, Lenin Stalin, Karl Marx and Fidel Castro on her wall. And as she has these mass murderers and dictators on the wall, she was telling me that her ideas, the similar ideas to the men on the poster, they were going to end poverty in America and uplift the working class and bring progress in all the usual talking points, and something in my brain just didn't compute and not only that, I mean, I knew that that didn't add up. But I just didn't know what to say to her. And so that really sent me on a mission to help young people in America that understand at the core that, you know, these guys were really bad mass murderers and dictators, but we just don't know what to say to our peers that are falling for it. I want to help equip them with the truth and equip them with the way to have a conversation that could change a heart and mind, because what really inspires me, there's this Michigan state university study that said the best way to change a young person's opinion with an imposing viewpoint is actually hearing it from a peer, not from a parent or a professor. So we really like to use that concept of peer rationale to reach as many young people as possible.

Have Wealthy Societies Historically Embraced 'Wokeism'?

"Of history, I'm curious, you mentioned the French Revolution. There has there been times ever in history. Where a very wealthy society decides to embrace this kind of woke ideology, something similar to woken. Does that make sense? I mean, there was a legitimate reason to get rid of the bourbons. And they looked at there were a lot of moderate people and they looked at the British system and they said, you can have a monarchy compatible with a constitutional republic. And that was eminently possible in 1787. And then you had these cycles of revolution where today's revolutionary would be tomorrow's sellout. You just want more robespierre was killed by the very people who used to support him, right? And basically got liquidated him and his brother in about 1400. And they applauded for ten minutes. The legend goes. They did. And then those cycles kept going and then you always are into it. So what does that mean for us then? Well, it always ends because chaos is unsustainable. So Napoleon ended it. Very brilliant fashion. He just said, I am the revolution, I'm going to make all the total power. I'm going to create a military academy that's going to be based on Napoleon. It's just like Stalin stopped it.

Why They Banned Me From Twitter

"We have a process on how we tweet around here. I actually don't have the Twitter dot com app on my phone, producer Connor does. And we have to go through a process of what is tweeted and what has approved upon and all of that. So there was this tweet that came out in our chat and we went back and forth and I read it four or 5 times. We even watered it down just so you know. We watered it down significantly because we don't want look less so famously said when he was trying to topple the Soviet Union, we have enough martyrs. And don't try to just run into a machine gun nest with your hands up saying, I hate Stalin and they shoot you. Okay, what good is that? That doesn't do any good. But if you get martyred for a good purpose and it moves the ball forward and you're still trying to be prudent about it, that's a separate issue. So enough kamikaze pilots, I suppose what I'm getting at. So we workshopped this tweet that said, I want you to listen carefully. Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family. He transitioned to being a woman in 2011. Joe Biden appointed Levine to a four star admiral and now USA Today has named Rachel Levine as a woman of the year, where are the feminists? Now that sentence I just read to you, I tweeted. And as a result, we have lost access to our Twitter. We have been suspended from Twitter for that specific tweet. It says, quote, you may not promote violence against threaten or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease. So that's interesting. I get threatened all the time on Twitter, people wishing me death, attacking me because of my conservative beliefs because of my Christianity and all that Twitter doesn't do anything about it. Nor do I want them to, nor do I care about it because I don't actually define myself by being a victim of some sort of group. I think it's a waste of time and a bad it's just a poor way to exist or to live your life. So then Twitter kind of offers this choice. They cock the gun, they put the gun to your forehead, and they say, okay, you can either click delete and then you get your Twitter back, basically you can acknowledge you did wrong and submit to us or you're not going to get your Twitter back.

By that, I mean that the pax Americana of the past three decades is over. You can see signs of this everywhere. He's not wrong. Freed zakaria is wrong about a lot. He's not wrong about this. And so this is look, on our program, we are not ideological when it comes to foreign policy. We're certainly ideological on some things. Not on foreign policy, though. We're very ideological on gender policy. Wouldn't you say Connor? And I'm pro life, I'd say. So, but when it comes to foreign policy, we want what's best for America. Realpolitik. And so in certain places, I could see a prudent argument for America to police shipping lanes. I think that's actually a good argument. We're not isolationist. I can't stand people that immediately default towards ideology when it comes to foreign policy. I think that's the worst, actually. If I were to try to say, what would the worst category to be ideological in? It would be foreign policy. And here's why. You're dealing with separate actors incentives, impulses, you're dealing with moving targets, you're dealing with unlikely alliances. So let me give you an example why ideology is so dangerous when it comes to foreign policy. Okay, let's say that we sit in a room and we say under no circumstances, whatsoever will we ever get into an alliance with a communist dictator? Good rule, right? Great rule. I think it looks great on paper. So let's just write that down, right? We're all in a room. We say this is our ideology. We hate communism. Hate dictators. No alliances with communist dictators. And we all say, yeah, that's right. Okay. Do you get an alliance with Joseph Stalin to defeat Hitler? Your rule says you can't do that. Real politics says, what's best for the civilization? Do you ally with an evil to defeat a greater evil? The answer is yes, that was the right decision, by the way.

Hang on a second, that's the moral equivalency argument of the Cold War that all states are the same. There is a qualitative difference between America and Russia. There is a qualitative difference between Ukraine and Russia. Putin has peddled a lie for 23 years that NATO is on the march. We are being encircled by those dastardly Democrats. Those democracies with their free markets. We aren't an empire. There's no emperor of NATO, who uses force to expand up to the borders of Russia, NATO is a club. You can apply to join, and if you meet the requirements of collective defense, you can join. Nobody, when we opened up NATO to Hungary, where I served for 15 years, when we opened it up to the Baltic states who had been swallowed up by Stalin. We didn't invade the Baltic states when gobbled them up. They wanted to join NATO. They applied, they had to meet criteria. And then when they met them, they were let in. There's no moral equivalent. It's like saying the Warsaw Pact was the same as NATO. No, the Warsaw Pact was Russia, the Soviet Union controlling every other slave nation in the pact.

The Fog of War

"There is a thick fog of propaganda. Surrounding the Ukraine war. The invasion of Ukraine. And this makes it difficult for us as it does for the Russians to try to figure out what actually is going on. On the Russian side, it turns out that the Russian media controlled by Putin is putting out all kinds of fabrications about the Ukraine. In fact, they are essentially portraying this war in very much the manner that Stalin portrayed the Second World War. As kind of a war against fascism. In fact, a war against European fascism. And Stalin, from Stalin's point of view, communism was nothing more than an anti fascist ideology. I mean, think of how deceitful this is communism and fascism came out of the same socialist route. But nevertheless, Stalin was able to mobilize kind of national feeling, mother Russia, and Putin, it's amazing how the playbook is kind of the same. Now, if all of that seems utterly deceitful, the question we have to ask is, are we getting the same kind of propaganda by which I mean, we're not having what normally occurs in America and in the west in these situations, which is multiple points of view, arguments that go back and forth. I mentioned one by John mirchi, or the realist scholar, very distinguished scholar of international affairs, who makes the point that the west sort of provoked this a little bit. Not provoked Putin's appetite for aggression, that was there already, but in a sense, gave Ukraine the idea that it would be kind of fun and that they would have that the west would be right behind them and poking the Russian bear and of course the Russian bears a lot bigger than the Ukrainian land, if you will.

Eric and James O'Keefe on What We Can Learn From 'Mr. Jones'

"Welcome back folks. I'm talking to James O'Keefe founder of project veritas, author of the new book American muckraker rethinking journalism for the 21st century. So James, I was just referring to this film mister Jones, which talks about Gareth Jones, a Welsh journalist who sees in Soviet Russia in the Soviet Union in the early 30s. What Stalin is doing, which is evil with a capital E but the other journalists, most notably Walter duranty of The New York Times who won a Pulitzer Prize that's never been rescinded for effectively giving cover to Stalin's genocidal murderous regime. But I thought it's so incredible because what the story of the film shows is how one of these reporters, one of these journalists, Vanessa Kirby's character, initially she's basically said, I believe in this communist utopia. And I'm willing to look the other way for the greater good. She eventually changes. But it struck me that that's where Mary very many American journalists are today. They hate Trump so much or they hate something so much that they're willing to overlook the facts, the story. I mean, the most dramatic example for me was the Hunter Biden laptop. When that story got buried by everybody I thought I just feel like my country is dead. You don't have a country if you don't tell those stories. Well, that's true. And in this book, I write about this idea of in journalism. There's always been a tension between access and autonomy. So what I drew from the movie about Jones movie was a study of the potemkin village, so the guy had access to the Soviet Union, and he was being told these things. And these days, journalists, if not narrative Eric, they tend to relay what they're told by the powerful. They just relay it to you. Okay, here's what The Pentagon says. Here's what Putin is saying. Here's what this guy is saying. Well, that's not really journalism. That's more like public relations. So of course, I can't go to these fraudsters. Hi, I'm James O'Keefe. Tell me all the fraud you're committing. They'll never tell me the truth. So investigative journalism is what you really want. You want, okay, you're told X okay, I'm going to go try to disprove X by finding out why. That's not happening anymore. And the reason is not just politics and narrative, yes, that's some of it. It's also economics. It's expensive and it's difficult to challenge the company line or to challenge the government line. And you burn your access to the government. Right.

"Reverses himself and is able to reverse himself or reverse the Soviet path to give various nationalities there, their ability to develop their own cultures and internal politics. Once he reverses all that, you know, you have the Ukrainian famine in 32, 33. You have the murder of kierra, who is one of the leading figures in the political system. You have the suicide of his wife. If you have all these things come together in 32 33 that then, you know, make it more likely in other words that bad things are going to happen. And people start seeing that too around him. They start seeing that. It's not a slippery slope. It's a dangerous. It's a dangerous situation, which is emerging. And some people really understand that. So I really do see a differentiation than between the 20s. I mean, it's true that Stalin during the Civil War, there's a lot of good research on that. You know, shows that he already had some of these characteristics of being, as it were murderous and being, you know, being dictatorial and pushing people around and that sort of thing. That was all there. But I don't really see that as kind of the necessary stage for the next thing that came, which was the 30s, which was really terror of the worst sort, you know, where everybody is afraid for their lives and their most people are afraid for their lives and their families lives and where torture and that sort of thing becomes a common part. You know, of who what people had to face. So it's a different it's a different world. And people will argue, they'll argue this kind of Lenin Stalin, continuity debate. You know, that's been going on since I was an undergraduate, right? That argument, you know, was Stalin the natural sort of next step from Lenin or was he something completely different?.

Tell you about his taste swell. Personally i consider the whole stalin's and he's the one that moved there. As far as oscar de sell section. They were setting some spirits. There's a bulge gin and a few other things and then i think there's some. There's certainly more kim. This theory is that stalin. Didn't actually drink that match us. Wanted to bribe paypal and two. If you got drunk enough you could get stories out of them that they might otherwise might not tell it was a regular. -tective was to keep these ministers up and get them blind drunk. It's four o'clock in the morning or all night and say what i would say exactly. I believe so. Maybe the sellers us that apparently kristof who ended up Succeeding in when east to get home from these ol- not drinking bats with stalin. He used to before he went to bed and he told his wife what he'd say during the course of the evening she'd write it down so we can remember the so couldn't be held against him. That's that's how mine was kind of almost an instrument of tariff stalin. So you got the dozen bottles back to australia. But there was still this nagging worry that they might be considered some kind of cultural artifact in georgia.

This is georgia in the caucus of georgia. Right this once. Out of the soviet union mean between turkey and russia anchalee. Yeah so that's where the ones silhouette where the wine was. Harry didn't tell us who's it was. He told us where was. And yes. And the georgians want a million dollars. Us for the wind for the wholesaler. And i said okay. So who who owns the one and he said all that's the best bit and he says i'll have to get nibbled to tell you that so we got two navels office and nivel said the story he got from georgia. It was the seller of the last russian nicholas. The second come the russian revolution nicholas. The second is taken out and not removed. And of course lennon took ivan then lynn not long after stanton coastal and took however so. This was the wine collection that had been the property of the czar of russia. Nicholas the second. He was inherited by the bolsheviks after the bolshevik takeover. And then that's how it came into the position of. Joseph stalin the dictatorship soviet union exactly everything becomes. Joseph's joseph says it's is it that's right who wants to argue not no one wants to so hounded the wine then get from what i can. Only assume is the winter palace instant petersburg all the way to georgia. Well come the second world war. Stalin was very concerned. Hitler was going to run russia so style and decided to move a lot of artifacts. And and there's this other story we told was that stalin divide the ceiling to three parts. One part went to the masandra winery and the crime. Which is the national winery and one third went to his hometown of tbilisi georgia. No would find it. And of course now i did find a for fifty years. So you've gone to see this money executive bought a mine in georgia near tbilisi the capital and from that. He's discovered this winery nearby. That has a huge collection of thousands and thousands of bottles of wine that had been done by the last czar of the romanovs pasta under stalin and had been forgotten about was the part of you that thought on being told tile here. That can't be true. I was incredibly skeptical about the whole thing. But when something like this you know when you're in the wine industry and your specialty is alderman ray winds and you get offered supposedly a collection. The no one's ever heard of it didn't own exists and it's got some of the greatest wines in the world..

Lennon starts at state, but you guys have just acted up but I know that the one military commander he did trust at. At that point is General Sukhov. who was a war hero? He's probably most famous Russian general of World War Two, and although Stalin had some good ideas, I think he also realized his shortcomings as a military leader, and increasingly he did rely on good advice and slowly, but surely at great expense in terms of the number of men whose lives were sacrificed and the amount of distance, Kevin and territory.

"And by no means he to be ignored, you know I think his great biographer wrote that he was probably the single most influential person of the twentieth century and I. Don't know that that's too much of a grab, because if you look at how much was achieved by Russia during Stalin's time. Time and how much he as a single person, affected and influenced the history of the world I. Think it's fair to say that. He Sydney in the top three, and his biographers say he's number one, so let's start at the beginning. Because his his origins are quite interesting to us born in Georgia, not in Russia and he was considered more Asiatic than Russian. Of, course he later on became known and identified as a Russian man, but he had a slight Georgia accent and beginnings were very much in a religion, so he grew up in a very rough town gory, which wasn't too far from Tiffany, which is the capital of Georgia which was part of Russia at the time, and his mom was a charismatic lady, and it just happened that visa who who was? was stalled instead he was sort of caught the fund in gory for a small period of Tom they got married, and he ended up, being drank that beat Stalin and was actually incredible that he actually survived it was it was a horrible upbringing with visa that drunk, but his mom was a very strong character, and she actually locked.

He sang beautifully. He wrote reproach. Yeah, that's right he was. He got into some fights when he was much younger. He also excelled as you say academically. He displayed tenant painting drama. He wrote his own poetry as you mentioned, too. He sang a choirboy boy, but talking about that there was such a Nigga, because gory, as said was such a rough and tough. Tan and vase have caused roles, and he won a lot of roles. As much as he lost, it was a smaller, but he he was very very tough and he was a natural Lido in those very early days, he.

He was hit by a carriage, and it actually caused a lifelong disability to his left arm, which prevented him from active military service. You think shortened these left on. It was quite severe newest down an APP for quite a long time. And that made a big difference. I think the fact that he was only fought for three and he had. He's sick and I think he's left foot with joined cy yet a whip foot, which the son of the Devil at that time. And you're! They were few challenges inferiority through. And then later on, because he was always on the run, and he was caught from time to time, and he got rotten teeth from being severe for so long, and so you will say lack teeth said that was another thing that he was quite embarrassed about well.

"Coming up Stalin is thrust into World War Two now back to the story when Joseph Stalin took control in the late nineteen twenties. His goal was to shape the USSR into a global power for his first steps. He decided to focus his efforts at home rather than abroad. While Stalin did agree with the idea of spreading socialism around the world. He recognized the difficulty after the resistance they met during the Russian civil war and his bungling support for bourgeois nationalists in China. Stalin took an isolationist approach when it came to foreign policy unfortunately for him. This meant not taking the rise of Fascism in Europe as seriously as he should have. Some historians have argued that Stalin's miscalculations on foreign policy actually helped give rise to his eventual fo- Adolf Hitler near the end of World War One Russia and Germany had gone through a similar crisis. A monarchy fell and the new government was overrun by competing parties jockeying for control in Russia the ultimate victors were the Bolsheviks in Germany. The rising power was the Nazi party. Stolen have the opportunity to help the German Communists and Social Democrats. Stop the Nazis from taking control when with think that he would have wanted to contain the openly anti-soviet Nazi party but he completely miscalculated the threat. Not only did. Stalin not side with the Liberals Social Democrats against the Nazis but he actually encouraged German communists to work with the Nazis to defeat the Social Dem's basically Stalin's strategy. Was this get rid of the liberal groups and the less radical socialists and make way for the Fascist Nazis because of the economic depression in Germany. The capitalist Nazis wouldn't be able to retain power for long then the communists could rise and take control however stolen underestimated the appeal of Nazism to the German workers. More importantly he didn't expect Hitler to expel Communists so quickly once. He attained power the liquidation of German Communists in one thousand nine hundred eighty three gave Stalin pause. Had He really been fooled again as he had during the Chinese civil war since the end of World War One Germany and Russia had been on good terms. But Hitler's move against the Communists was the first break in relations. It signaled the beginning of the decade long battle between Communism and Fascism Germany's sudden militarization only inflame Stalin's fears should Hitler invade the USSR. They wouldn't be ready to defend themselves. Stalin needed to buy some time before the inevitable war so he began reaching out to other European countries and forming alliances in September. Nineteen thirty four. The Soviet Union officially joined the League of nations a year later. They entered a mutual assistance pact with France and Czechoslovakia. They were sending a message to Hitler. Germany was surrounded. Proceed with caution but as the nineteen thirties continued so too did the spread of Fascism Stalin realized that treaties between a few nations weren't going to be enough war against fascism would have to be fought on the ground. The first battle would be in Spain while the Nazis supported Francisco. Franco's nationalist regime the Soviet Union sided with the Anti Fascist Republicans. Stalin gave them tanks planes and troops but despite his help the fascists won the defeat in Spain was a significant blow for Stalin. The paradox of course was that the Republican faction he supported wasn't communist or socialist. It was a bourgeois democracy. This was the third time he'd cited with a non Socialist Party in a foreign conflict and the third time it had failed according to historian. Stephen Kotkin Stalin might have thought supporting the Spanish Communists would alienate the USSR from Britain and France by supporting the bourgeois democracy. He kept himself in good standing with the Tube. Powerful nations whatever. His reasons the defeat in Spain put the reality of Germany's influence into perspective for the safety of the Soviet Union. He had to make peace with Hitler on August. Twenty Third Nineteen thirty nine Germany and the Soviet Union signed a nonaggression pact by now. Stalin was certain that war with Hitler was inevitable but the pact bought them at least ten years. The deal did more than just assure. Peace it also divided up territory in the eastern bloc. Hitler was given free rein to invade Lithuania and Dan Zick. While Stalin Got Estonia Latvia and Finland Poland would be divided between the two. This move not only helped. Soviet German relations it also allowed Stalin to expand the Soviet Union without the fear of retaliation a month after the pact was signed Germany invaded Poland. Stalin of course was expecting this but he may not have expected to launch the Second World War for stolen. This wasn't a problem he'd already made peace with Hitler. Two weeks later. The Soviet Union annexed portions of Poland and with a fewer now focused on his war with France and Britain. Stalin could turn his attention to Finland. The winter war between the Soviet Union and Finland was a quick but costly victory for Stalin in the end. The Soviet Union only gained eleven percent of Finland's territory and it costs them three hundred thousand lives Finland. Meanwhile only lost around sixty five thousand. Stolen took the pyrrhic victory as a learning experience but back in Berlin. Hitler saw the winter war as evidence of the Soviet military's weakness if Germany took them on victory would be swift show on June twenty second. Nineteen forty one. Germany invaded the Soviet Union. When word reached Stalin he was truly taken aback by Hitler's betrayal. Once again he had miscalculated. He put his faith in a man who is almost certainly going to betray him at some point and yet he seemed to be shocked when the predictable move finally came the German Blitzkrieg was fast and brutal Stalin's response was just as bloodthirsty both sides engaged in war crimes. The likes of which the world had never seen massacres. Sexual assault and beheadings were a constant the war between the Soviet Union and Germany. King to ahead at Stalingrad. For five months the two armies engaged in one of the most destructive and costly battles of the entire war. There were nearly two million casualties in a close quarters battle of wills but ultimately the Soviets prevailed Stalin's victory helped him internationally until then the Soviet Union was alone in its fight against the Germans on the eastern front that was because both the United States and Britain had no desire to work with a man who wants made peace with Hitler. And who was a communist at that but the battle of Stalingrad changed both Franklin d Roosevelt and Winston Churchill's attitudes at the end of November nineteen forty-three? The Big Three agreed to meet in Tehran. According to Historian Simon. See Bag Montefiore. Stalin became quite fond of Roosevelt. During this first meeting. He formed quote as genuine a diplomatic friendship as he ever managed with any imperialist. Of course. That didn't stop. Stalin from bugging Roosevelt's room always paranoid. He had to make sure his new weren't plotting against him. As the Soviets continued to push the Germans back on the Eastern Front Stalin moved his eyes towards conquering Berlin. If he were to take the fuhrer's capital it would be the ultimate retaliation. Of course this would have to be discussed with Roosevelt and Churchill. Their next meeting was in February. Nineteen forty five at that point. The Red Army was only forty miles from the German capital. Stalin knew he had an advantage in the negotiations. He even convinced the other to meet at his chosen location. Along the Black Sea. All three knew that the war was almost over. It was simply a matter of when so the main topic of discussion was how to divide up Europe. Once the dust settled for nearly two decades Stalin had been burned in his foreign policy either because of betrayal or simply by backing the wrong horse. But the Red Army's recent victories validated Stalin. He refused to come out of this meeting a loser by the time the Yalta Conference ended. Stalin was anything but in exchange for simply promising to help the US fight against Japan allowing free elections in Poland and joining the United Nations. Stalin was given the largest chunk of Germany along with the Polish lands. He had annex back in nineteen thirty nine. One thing that wasn't discussed at Yalta though was who was going to take Berlin. Churchill more than Roosevelt argued that the western front should be the one to take it. Stalin naturally argued that it should be him ultimately it was. Dwight D Eisenhower. The commander of the allied forces who conceded Berlin to the Soviets Eisenhower knew was much more important to work with Stalin than to fight with him delighted at the beginning of April. Stalin ordered his two best generals to advance on Berlin in the early hours of May First. Nineteen forty-five Stalin had just gone to bed when he was awoken by an urgent phone. Call Adolf Hitler's body had been found shot in the head and charred from Soviet shelling Stalin's response was so that's the end.

The first of the Moscow show trials began these trials had predetermined verdicts gave off the appearance of being fair. The first to be tried were common. You have and Zinoviev along with fourteen others. Even though there was no actual evidence of the elaborate plot both men confessed to conspiring with Trotsky to kill Stalin on August twenty fifth nineteen. Thirty six all sixteen defendants were of course found guilty and executed by firing squad. A second show trial occurred in January nineteen thirty seven resulting in seventeen more executions and on March Fifteenth Nineteen thirty eight Nikolai Bukharin. The man who helped shape Stalin's socialism in one country doctrine was executed as well. The great purge may have started with Stalin's own paranoia but over the next two years. He used it to strike fear into the entire country. Exact numbers vary but somewhere between seven hundred fifty thousand and one point. Five million. People were executed on Stalin's orders over a million were sent to spend their days. Gulags Stalin is often attributed with a quote one. Death is a tragedy. A million is a statistic historian Stephen Kotkin notes. That he quote showed no sign that he was in the least tormented by the slaughter. And why should he be? His point was achieved so much. As a whisper of anti-stalin rhetoric was caused for execution by the time the great purge ended in nineteen thirty eight. The only rival standing with Stalin's greatest enemy. Leon Trotsky it would take another two years for Trotsky assassination to come to fruition but not for lack of trying in August nineteen forty. The man who had caused a stall in so much pain was finally put to silence. There would never again be another internal threat to Stalin's power instead. He would have to turn his attention to outside threats because while he was trying to navigate a new Socialist Nation Europe was falling under the yoke of fascism and by the late nineteen thirties. Fascism had turned its attention eastward towards Moscow.

"August nineteen forty Leon Trotsky hunched over his desk in a humid stuffy villa in Mexico City for over a decade. He'd been in jail bouncing country to country. Wherever he went the Soviets were close behind him. He'd survived two failed attempts on his life already but Stalin could send as many assassins as he wanted. It wasn't going to silence. Trotsky at around five. Pm Trotsky was deep into his work on another polemic against the Secretary General. There was a knock on the door. Frank Jackson a young Trotskyite. Who'd been helping him build an international movement against Stalin. Trotsky invited him. In and rummage through his papers. Frank would love the new pages he'd written all of a sudden Trotsky felt a sharp pain in his head. He turned and saw his young protege with a bloody icepick in his hand. Back in Moscow. Stalin received the news. The undercover agent had successfully put an end to Leon Trotsky. It took three attempts but the job was finally done. Stalin's last remaining rival was dead.

Last week we explored Stalin's rise from Marxist revolutionary to leader of the Soviet Union. This week we'll explore how he ruthlessly suppressed dissent at home to maintain his control and miraculously emerged from World War. Two as one of the most powerful men in the world by the beginning of nineteen twenty eight forty nine year old Joseph Stalin de facto leader of the Soviet Union at squashed his political rivals common yet Zinoviev and most importantly Trotsky were either exiled from the Soviet Union or had their voices dropped to only a whisper within the government. The brute from Georgia who rose up the ranks within the Bolshevik cause was now ruling with an iron fist now that he was in power. Stalin began crafting. The Soviet political ideology Marxism Leninism. This specific philosophy wasn't technically around during. Lenin's time he simply called himself a Marxist. It was Stalin who shape the notion of marxism-leninism though we could spend hours discussing the particulars. This philosophy can be summed up in four key aspects. I A one party system. In this case the Communist Party would be the only political party in Russia. Second continued class warfare. Stalin believed that bourgeois ideals could seep into the cracks of Russian society. At any moment it was important to stamp it out before any problems began third dialectical materialism in essence. This means pudding science logic and materialism above religion. Soviet policy was to enforce state atheism and root out any religion and forth an economy that is entirely run by the state. Stalin knew that the Soviet Union was way behind the times when it came to industrialization as leader. He was determined to catch up with the rest of the world. What he proposed was the first of many five year plans and it was through these policies. That are brutal. Off Shoot of Marxism Leninism would rise Stalinism a few. Before his death Lennon had enacted the new economic policy as a way to jumpstart the Soviet economy it temporarily brought back free trade in agriculture and gave peasants private ownership of their farms with Stalin fully at the helm. It was time to do away with the N. E. P. IN. Its place was the first five year plan which lasted from Nineteen Twenty eight to nineteen thirty two. The key goals were rapid industrialization and agricultural collectivisation the industrialization aspect got off to a slow start. The Soviet Union barely produced more steel or iron in nineteen twenty nine than it had in the early nineteen ten's but as time progressed manufacturing in all areas increased exponentially. The second area was collectivisation. Basically farms weren't operated by individual farmers but in groups there were two types of collective call. Who's which were like co-ops and soft. Who's which were state run? Like the industrial policies. This move was meant to increase production at the beginning of nineteen thirty. Three Stalin declare that the first five year plan was a success. Oil production had nearly doubled. Steel output went from four million tons to six million tons a year. Whole cities were erected from nothing. The Turks Siberian railway had been constructed in its entirety and millions flocked from the countryside into urban dwellings. It's widely believed that. These numbers were inflated but Stalin had still made good on his promise he was on his way to turning the USSR into a modern nation. But with the good comes the bad one of the effects of Lenin's new economic policy was the creation of a new class known as kulaks. These were basically peasants who owned property and employed one or two workers in Stalin's eyes. They were essentially small. Scale capitalists and an enemy of the Soviets the collectivisation of farms was meant to end the Kulak class. Kulaks were violently forced to hand over their land to the government. They weren't even allowed to participate in the new co ops instead they were either exiled or forced into gulags linen had originally created the Gulags as labor camps for political enemies during the civil war but under Stalin's reign they were greatly expanded to include anyone deemed an enemy of the state a term that was liberally applied. Thanks to Stalin's collectivisation. Millions of farmers were killed in the gulags or by execution and millions more died in one of the worst famines in Russian history nineteen thirty two and one thousand nine hundred thirty three the Russian countryside of Ukraine Kazakhstan the Volga region and northern caucuses saw tidal wave of food shortages as flocks of people made their way into the newly industrialized cities. The government demanded a higher quota of food and the remaining farmers had a difficult time meeting it. The government had also sold off agricultural products like grain to foreign markets to help pay for Stalin's industrial projects. There was also the fact that many farmers didn't want to join a collective in Ukraine. The farmers revolted others simply drop their plow and walked away creating a lack of labor. My nineteen thirty to the food supply ran out. While grain was being held in guarded silos for urban consumption. The countryside was left to fend for themselves. The catastrophic result was the death of an estimated seven million people some have claimed that Stalin purposely initiated the famine but historians Stephen Kotkin argues that Stalin simply miscalculated the outcome of forced collectivisation he envisioned enormous farms producing an abundance of food. What he didn't count on was the high demand in the cities or the pushback from farmers who didn't want to collectivize Stalin's initial reaction to the famine was to blame the workers. He claimed that farmers ditching their land were lazy. And therefore enemies of the people and enemies of the people were either sent to Gulags or found a bullet in the back of their head behind the scenes. Stalin desperately made trade deals with other countries for aid. He returned over five million tons of grain held in storage back to farmers but the damage was done however despite the millions of casualties Stalin's still saw the first five year plan as a success. He accomplished his goals. The kulaks were virtually. No more and the Soviet Union had made strides toward modernization from his foreign hideouts. Trotsky observes Stalin's rule in horror in his opinion. Stalinism wasn't even socialism it was state run. Capitalism Stalin operated not with the working class but over the working class exploiting them like any other bourgeois leader and Trotsky made sure the world knew what he thought drodskie's inflammatory writings angered Stalin. To no end. He hated that his old rival was still alive and still good with a pen even if he was in exile. Trotsky still had the power to persuade. It wasn't long before Stalin convinced himself that Trotsky was plotting a coup and that the so-called conspiracy had members within the ranks of the Russian Communist Party. This paranoia culminated in the great purge which began with the assassination of Sergei Kirov on December. First Nineteen thirty four cure of was a high ranking member of the Polish Bureau. As well as chairman of the Communist Party in Leningrad formerly known as Petrograd. He was an ally of Stalin's but he was.

"Like it's big scene. Was you know I mean they were working? Its way up. Everything was getting exciting. You know they army comes in. They get their big plan. Then the Kelham and I mean everybody had vested interests at that point. You already knew. The army didn't want to lose power. Being the army is he was kind of bringing in his his own. Mike Secret Service kind of special army. I mean but it it was. It was good. It was cool. We'll Sergio what are you doing to picked it? So how do you feel so I do? I think you guys all do have a lot of great insights on especially everyone's interpretation on how the ending hit them me personally. It's kind of like a mixture of both like obviously you know it's coming if you know the history but just the execution of it it. A lot of humor does rely on the pacing of it as well as the pacing. And just how it hits you. And how the movie? And their punch lines in their jokes and their characters and the dialogues hit you and sometimes it will just be like long pauses of silence during a joke especially with Stalin's son when he does something stupid when he when he spit up and it landed in his face. I was just the portrayal of it. It's I I'm a fan of it because I just like the I enjoy the Mockery of the stupidity of it and in terms of how that ending hits. I'd say at going back to what Fred was saying about how. It does feel like a documentary. I do agree with that. And our documentary with humor. I do agree with that. And just like the Ted Bundy documentaries. That's fucking hilarious. Whole areas by the same guys to Steve. I don't think it was as dude St Bisham so good but yeah I just I good that. He looks like Zach at the Irishman. So the FUCK T. So one brothers. None of that I WANNA trip was. Does he sing in that movie. 'cause IF NOT. I think it's a MISNOMER SYNERGY. Save the SHAMMY SEE. Fried Nokia. Come on come on. He's things we're all in this together before he kills somebody fantastic. We're all in this together. But whatever no. He didn't sing in the first movie. I was like it. Sounds like wind right? No you're right with the movie but for some weird reason. Disney didn't let him sing in the first movie. Oh really yeah. But that's a whole other teen a serial killer of a different color but anyways with this movie. It's not the best movie out there. Of course there's very very there's other things that are very similar to it but the amount of scenes a mini amount of great scenes. The amount of great it's just The character interactions just each of the performances. Always trying to one up the other In like the most mellow way possible. I get largest like how they were like. Yeah they were mellow e like trying to be the best in the characters. Would Steve stands for every ten board a funeral? He's like he's like let me get on this other side of you. Is this subtle? Yeah Stupid Shit. Like that is riddled with that kind of stuff. Which is what I find enjoyable about it and it's just it's it's entertaining to watch. I find it hockey and the hockey. All these leaks scenes in joke gav right. This is what you go through when you watch the movie. The movie's just riddled with this kind of stuff. And that's how it structured. Which is why I find how it is. Structured very different to traditional things. Like this is because obviously a lot of. It's it's like it's on John. Right now at this point. But that's how it that's how this genre is it. Structured an paced by these jokes. Just keep coming and coming and coming in anything. That's what makes that ending. Hit some people that are expecting it. Because you're just so used to this flow this constant flow of almost like a barrage of just you know funny senior joker just something. That's really funny or entertaining to watch. And then all of a sudden it gets cut off and science and yeah it's very British Super Bowl so just reminded of like the Stalin's son is like the sun in that episode of the. Id crowd where he bussing to his father's All My god.

"It's still going on today a lot of places crazy dictatorships in you know even if it's not to that extreme. There's still stuff where like there's people who this crazy power hungry all over the place Yeah so Let's get in. Shit like the story and A bit more in Basically like what scenes stood out to you and like overall like what is. This is a very comedic Movie of course and for me like gateways There's just so much so many good like satiric goal or comedic moments like Xm. One that stands out right now is with Zebu Shamir and then The man that in the in the beginning stand Stolen wanting to be killed. I can't remember his name but Just that whole What's name from arrested Development No no no Jeffrey Tambor No the one that that Stalling wanted to get killed like like. He left at the end of the night the night. That's all in The one whose wife whose life that whole that whole wait there. We're we're Khrushchev is like here's your wife is Suffolk die. He's like she's dead. She's not there at like she's she's a trainer and stuff like that and then she she'll she shows up she's like Oh my. Gosh. I can't believe it. It's just the absurdity of that scene just like crucial which is like like. It's so cute. Like don't stop saying that. She's right behind the door. That stuff did happen during the time of the Soviet Union during like those totalitarian governments just the whole guest gulags and secret like the KGB and and the whole the whole thing with the interchangeable list Stalin's lists being replaced with new lists after his death and just the fight for power and those are the kinds of things where it's like all these big government things or whatever politics but politics aside. It's one big joke. Which is what the young he tries to show do using a lot of using a lot of different methods that they use in the movie kind of reminded me of Joe Joe Rabbit a little bit in that respect. Judge rather it was a lot more A lot less dark on. I mean it's kind of like. Was there bolt. But they're both like satires these horrible regimes and like these terrible people and Jo's rabbit you know you do kind of like have care to root for whereas you don't really have anybody to root for really in this one but they both kind of I think. Well I rooted for Khrushchev. I mean he was trying to reform and like and that whole at the end where it's like he. He was starting to reform. They cut to like the when they're like listen to the opera or not opera but the the concert and then they cut to like button. They cut the camera behind him. And it's It's one who's the one that overtook him and did restore relations on. This is a history lesson on itself But like yeah that'd be real. I remember anybody's name. So he's he's character you feel you hear CBA. Shammy took character Khrushchev took over and was doing Zeeshan but then He was kind of like the lesser of all evils. Honestly I did root for him the whole time but only because unlike the Shemi so I I liked him but I I was going to go into. That bucket loved a general. This movie was funny. I got I gotta say that I feel the movie was just shows up and shows you land ish way and says I'm taking I'm I'm you know I'm going to take everybody by the nuts medal. And he just like everyone else laid all this political stuff. No time you'll sneak in just like just like I don't get a shot let's go. Let's just do a coup? I'm GonNa Punch in the face like he just like. Let's do this like he just had no chill and it was fucking great. Yeah there's just so many super power it's there so many scenes there were just had me buzzing laughing like the whole The car is in. The car is like blocking each other in and then like doing we need to get out. We need to get out to pay our quickey. The kid back in the car very like British humor like when they're letting racing to gold hung spent. Lana like it's all that kind of like you know very dry British humor at like about these horrible people and I was always also just busting a laughing. The whole fucking yeah. I definitely one a a definitely enjoyed in lake. I WanNa see it again. It's been it's been like a a week or so since I watched it but yeah I definitely want to see it again in lake. I like I got the sense of like gallic the job. It kinda like comedy of like if you like Joel. Rabbi you'll definitely probably and up liking this one Very satirical yeah and Just putting like a different interpretation of like these you know definitely evil people. Are you know stolen and and hot? Take these guys. Oh man how? How dare you say that? Wow that's that's super controversial a warning before this takes hoster trigger warning so yes what a. T. I was touching on before I wanted to go back to it. Is that There yeah for me. There was a fell. A definite tonal shift in the last like I'd say maybe like ten minutes of and it was like it was super sudden that it was like a shotgun to me like a shot. Gun Shot Of Wind they started basically they're quote unquote trial of The main like we like the bay area It just was like so sudden and it was soon just. There was no comedy to it like. That's what it which made for me like a lot. More impactful and drastic live like their action. Like this is like it happened so suddenly and I mean like yeah historically. I'm pretty sure like that's how it was like like it was within within ten minutes. This man was just dead gone burned and it wasn't until maybe like once. Steve Wants cruise ships started like listing his his His what. He was shot his crimes in his charges. Where I was like Oh like Oh this is like this now kind of thing like you know and for me it was like it was a very smart choice to actually do that and how to do it so suddenly to take the audience off guard because in a sense like all this whole movie everybody is getting getting caught off guard. You know there is some planning and stuff like that but with the politics of of Soviet Union and maybe touching on like politics of today in in certain countries like it could go that fast. It's like you know like it's just like a very I very like Smart writing and in my opinion. Yeah yeah no that was. The ending was really good I definitely like that. Kinda like fast. Paced frenetic dislike. Because you knew it was building towards something. But you didn't know who. I knew vaguely like what was going to happen. Like the new Khrushchev would come to power. But I didn't know what was going to happen. Like the details would have with Barry and like will allow like Stalin's son and all these other players and so that. Yeah it was definitely ramped up really quickly like you were saying that provided a very powerful impactful finale and then just kind of the Cherry on top of Khrushchev eventually to power. But then he got upset by somebody else and just kind of goes around around around for me. I didn't feel that change like I kind of felt it was coming. 'cause I was like the whole movie's colleges. You're expecting this climax is going to happen because it like the political kind of satire things like. It's just just a lot of Shit's going on. It's Kinda like Dr Strangelove. Were just a Lotta Shit going on and like it's a lot of light dry humor and then you have to throw something there at the end to like. I don't know like eight to give it a chance to explain. Ballet League would would like Dr Strangelove where they have the whole like. Oh we're going to drop the bomb and there's a cowboy riding the atomic bomb all that you're kinda like okay cool that that's the big thing but this one. I was like the half kill. This'll the co like he's he's antagonised you can tell from afar like you're late they're gonNA kill him or something was. GonNa have been but I like that. Changed for me was more like we're here. Finally you know the this is the end of the road. Yeah like I was going to happen but it was just for me. It was just like I guess I wasn't like I thought it was going to be carried out like a bit. Not just within the span of like Five minutes I think I was just selling like enthralled in the movie and in story in like that it's for me was just like a son in thing like I wasn't expecting but I understand like if you were like expecting and like waiting for it then. Yeah I'd like. Oh Kay we're here kinda thing. Yeah like that's how I felt that I was like. Oh we're here cool. Look let's get to. I'm assuming like his other show. Has other stuff is going to be like that as well like it feels like. Dukana just jumped into the middle of some shit going down and then when it ends. You're still in the middle like adjust. It was just a day in the life kind of thing happening. And you're Kinda like okay. A lot like moves on life happens beforehand kind of thing. I don't know Mosley you can't. It just felt very like it's in. The middle of this grander thing. But I think it's because I knew all it's something that you know. They're they're satirizing real life and you know with other movies. There's a climax boom gruden's feels like it's going to happen. Some some Shit's GonNa have been waiting for him to die and go Yeah I got a I mean I kind of our. They were headed to as started coming up. I mean I feel kind of like almost the kind of like a documentary where you kind of already know what to expect and you. Kinda know where 'cause you know how they kind of list at the end like well then he raises our then. Someone else gets the power and with the music and the stuff which is in Nevada and it I mean because you do get some of the last thing you do get some of this stuff in the movie but it's very factual and the sense of the movie so watching it. It felt like I was watching a documentary with humor. I guess I can put it that way and so and so You know when it once you once seen happened and then I feel like the end with all the stuff is almost like the ramp down for it..

"In Stalin's time because the Supreme Soviet met in it for awhile and they painted over all of the gold and all of the beautiful blues that are in there into a dull purple. and now they restored it and you can compare the room this is right in your wheel house aren't throw throw it to you on a few occasions three great men and great defined not with a moral component but with a significant component Stalin Churchill and FDR got together and I I you know I wish we coulda recorded these conversations because they represent the confluence of very different points of view with F. T. are being the least intellectual of the three but also the most powerful of the three in the long run do you think they ever talked high theory. well first of all there are extensive records about them talking and lots of the meetings were recorded in minutes but also Churchill himself you know because he wrote about everything you did. he wrote a lot about his conversations with Stalin and that that here's the most dramatic you know he he wrote in the world and the second World War that. one of its most popular books he wrote that very question Stalin about the crane and about the collective farms in the famines and he said yeah those peasants just wouldn't agree and they had to be made I'm paraphrasing and and Churchill said that he heard that any name some number and Stalin said no no and he admitted to another number and if memory serves the number you've made it too was eight million. enter to recorded that and you know I thought that was very indicative and another thing that's really wonderful is that at this long letter that Rachel wrote to Stalin and in the church archive there three versions of it. and he wrote a long protest against what Stalin was doing in the second half of the war. and he made a diatribe against Karl Marx or he made an argument against him and invited Stalin to reconsider all but in the road on that not sent. and then a second version shorter some of that remaining not sent and then the third version that was sent and all that remained to is is a paragraph this just these words I was never any good at Karl Marx. the doctor what. install and in the final analysis is he just a progressive with visions of humanitarian grander as was hinted at in the last segment he thought he was Jesus without all the hoopla or or or with it. and and and and and the progressives of today are just different because they're not coming out of the ashes of a leading this revolution armed with check out or is he something different entirely no what I'm saying he's really he's really a Marxist meaning he's a guy who's not just progressive in our look conductor liberal sense he's a guy who wants the rack can destroy. all private property private business everything's going to be collectivized reason why he had the murder thirty million peasants by starving them to death and some some of them to shot and sent away to the good life was because he thought that in order to save humanity we all had to become going to get away from people having their own farms that was the bottom line question bottom.
