    Return to The New Australian The Left's war against America By James Henry Few people appreciate the power of ideas. When they experience the social and economic effects of intellectually inspired long-term trends, many tend to ascribe the process to a conspiracy of some kind. (If only that were so). More than 160 years ago J. S. Mill wrote of how the ideas of a few writers can eventually influence the thinking of a nation's intellectuals. Keynes made a similar point when he wrote: "Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic...
  • When Victimhood Leads to Genocide

    (Auto Generated Transcript) one of the things that Maya and I found when we were writing this paper we were looking at the discourse that precedes genocide in genocide all states and the enhancement of a sense of victimization on the part of one of the groups usually the group that's going to commit the genocide first of all their sense as their sense of being victims is much heightened by the demagogues who are trying to stir up this sort of hatred so they basically say look you've been oppressed in a variety of ways and these are the...

    You’ve probably never heard of Gareth Jones. You’ve certainly heard of the writer he inspired, and the classic dystopian novel that writer created. You were forced to read it, or at least the Cliff’s Notes, in high school. But shorn of its context, that novel lacks the full punch it could deliver. Mr. Jones (2019), starring Peter Sarsgaard and James Norton, directed by Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland and written by Andrea Chalupa, provides that context in a must-see film. Mr. Jones is powerfully relevant today, even more than when it premiered in 2019. Mr. Jones tells the true story of...
  • Russian Orthodox Church Says “No” to Stalin’s Mosaic in the New Temple of the Russian Armed Forces

    05/14/2020 6:09:22 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 2 replies
    The Moscow Church does not want Stalin to be depicted in the new church of the Armed Forces. The disagreement was expressed by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk. “I believe that the images of Stalin should definitely not be placed in a Russian Orthodox Church, because Stalin was a persecutor of the Church. the blood of millions, including new martyrs and confessors of the Russian Church, is on his conscience, “the Metropolitan told Rossiya 24 (VGTRK) TV channel. “The church is neither an exhibition hall, nor a panorama of the Battle, nor a place where military parades should be depicted,” he...

    What do the people Eisenhower warned us about in his Military/Industrial Complex speech, expect to get out of deceiving us, that they don't already have? This is not advocacy, this is a question, that one of our members has the answer to: Why is it so important that they get us to believe lies? What do they expect to get out of it, that they can't get if we at least understand the broader outlines of the true strategic picture that they control anyway? Nikolai Yezhov (right) oversaw the executions of more than half a million Soviet citizens during the...

    The walls of Russia’s new Orthodox cathedral dedicated to the Armed Forces will be decorated with the faces of President Vladimir Putin, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Soviet leader Josef Stalin, the MBKh News website reported Friday. The 95-meter Armed Forces cathedral, a symbol of close defense-church ties in Russia, is expected to open on May 9 — the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in World War II — at a sprawling military-themed park near Moscow. Once completed, the building will become one of the tallest Orthodox churches in the world. Following MBKh News' report, the...

    The Religion of Immoralism By MAX EASTMAN The notion of Karl Marx as a noble brooder over man's hopes is dispelled in this account of his invention and philosophic justification of the ruthless methods of modern Communism.With Stalin gone it has become necessary to find a new focus for our hostility to the unscrupulous and inhuman behavior of the Communists. I wish it might be focused on the real cause of the trouble: Marxism. Much force of argument is wasted among Western intellectuals through a wish to exempt Marx from responsibility for this return to barbarism. Realpolitik in the evil...

    The Hill ^ | March 3, 2020 | Merrill Matthews
    ... Maybe in his next interview, Sanders could identify some of the good points of the Russian dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin. For example: Stalin improved literacy. Once firmly in control, Stalin sought to expand literacy, establishing state schools and later universities throughout the country — just like Cuba. Of course, there was an ulterior motive. As the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information notes: “After Stalin became the leader of the Soviet Union, speedy reforms of the Soviet schools and educational system began.” But it wasn’t just to teach people to read; the goal was for Russians...

    The Kremlin reacted with fury on Tuesday after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Soviet collusion with Nazi Germany led to the outbreak of World War II. While visiting Poland on Monday to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz death camp, Zelensky said the Poles “were the first to feel the consequences of the criminal collusion of the totalitarian regimes.” Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union invaded and carved up Poland in September 1939 under a secret clause of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The Nazi invasion prompted Britain and France to declare war on Germany. “We categorically disagree with...

    A cafe in a museum in Russia's second-largest city, St. Petersburg, has stopped selling chocolate bars with the portrait of the Soviet dictator Josef Stalin on its cover after a public outcry. The museum's administration told RFE/RL on December 16 that it pulled the chocolates from the cafe's shelves after it learned they were on sale in its cafe via the Internet. According to the museum’s press service, the administration of the museum was unaware that the cafe's owner had bought such chocolate bars. A day earlier, a Facebook user named Vadim Fialko placed a photo of the bar with...

    The children of victims of Stalin-era repressions have the right to receive state housing in the cities where their parents had been deported from, Russia’s Supreme Court has said in a landmark ruling Tuesday. Amendments to the 1991 law rehabilitating victims of Soviet-era political repressions adopted in 2005 contradict the Russian Constitution because they make it “impossible” for their children to receive housing, the court said. The court instructed federal and regional lawmakers to amend their legislation to ease housing restrictions “without delay.” “This is practically the most we could have expected from the Constitutional Court,” Grigory Vaypan, a lawyer...

    ANDREI VYSHINSKY QUOTES THE LEGAL PHILOSOPHY OF TERROR IN STALIN'S RUSSIA Although Andrei Yanuaryevich Vyshinsky is best known as Joseph Stalin's chief prosecutor during the trials of "state enemies" in the 1930s, Vyshinsky was also something of a theorist of the relationship between law, Marxism-Leninism, and the Socialist state. The quotations below are drawn from three of Vyshinsky's publications. They illustrate the basic direction of Vyshinsky's thought and political philosophy throughout his life as a leading member of the Soviet state apparatus. What is here is a scientific justification for the use of terror by the state.

    To understand communism, it’s important to look at the man who was the first to institute a government dedicated to Karl Marx’s ideals: Vladimir Lenin. When I was in college, I recall a conversation with several classmates who joked about throwing a get-together and naming it “The Communist Party.” They mocked the idea that anyone would fear this supposedly well-meaning ideology. I wonder if they would have been laughing if they were in the presence of gulag survivors. This Nov. 7 marks the 102nd anniversary of Lenin’s rise to power in Russia, and Nov. 9 will mark the 30th anniversary...
  • Putin Says It’s ‘Cynical’ to Blame Stalin for World War II

    Blaming Stalin for starting World War II is “the height of cynicism,” Russian President Vladimir Putin has said amid renewed discussion over the Soviet Union’s role in the conflict. “To say that Stalin unleashed the war is the height of cynicism,” Putin said at an international conference in southern Russia on Thursday. “It’s as if the Soviet Union attacked Germany at 4 a.m. on June 22 [1941] and not vice versa,” he told the Valdai Discussion Club. Russia and former satellites disagree over Stalin’s role in 1939, when he clinched the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany that paved the...

    Is the New York Times "airbrushing" history again? It would seem so. On Saturday, November 22, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko presided over a commemoration in Kiev of the 75th anniversary of the famine genocide of 1932-1933 that took the lives of 7-10 million Ukrainians. Known as the Holodomor (Ukrainian for "murder by hunger"), it is one of the greatest mass murders in history, and one of the cruelest ...

But his Foreign Ministry tried to make sure the Soviet Union’s role in ending the war got acknowledged at least. The ministry tweeted on Sunday: “One may have varying opinions on Soviet policy during the initial period of World War II, but it is impossible to deny the fact that it was the Soviet Union that...
