Control the mainstream media and you can get away with saying anything.

Continuing the series exposing communism.
The Soviet Union denied Holodomor ever happened in the late 1980s—right before it collapsed. The Russian government still denies it was a genocide.

A 99-year-old man recounted his experience of one of the greatest crimes—one unbeknownst to many—committed in Ukraine right before World War II.

Millions of people were killed when Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin starved the populace, forcing a famine on Ukraine, according to some scholars. To them, it was known as Holodomor, or “death by hunger” in Ukrainian.

Although there is debate as to the role the Soviet leadership played during the famine, “Stalin’s targeting of Ukrainian farmers proved relentless and insurmountable for the country’s peasantry,” says Rutgers University.

  • To the best of my understanding, there were provident farmers in Ethiopia. Hot weather crops have been grown in that desert since times, immemorial.

    They received the death penalty, for the crime of “original accumulation.”

    Because, they could unfairly enslave the less-fortunate.

    Hoards have been burned in the street, and the hoarders, shot in the open, under every Communist regime.

    In your own country, people are paid not to produce, useful food is destroyed, and confiscated, and prevented from transport. Independent interests are taxed, fined, and evicted from arable lands, or kept from conventional water sources, used for generations.

    The state is the presumptive, moral authority. The state is democracy. (sic) And, they are creating an alternative to welfare. They are competing with state interests.

    When you read the Russian interpretation of the Holocaust, the main area of focus, was not denialism, not the human toll, not racialism, not religious ideology. They were concerned about the creation of a parallel system of govt or state-within-a-state. In other words, a centralized, all-powerful authority feared the prospect of secession.

    In our Civil War, the South had what was called a Golden Circle of agriculture, which had later come to ruins. Again, the concern was not about human rights. Radical Reconstruction was just being used as a weapon.
