I know what do you feel. But do not lost a hope. Believe! one day your country will be free, like many other countries that liberated themselves from that criminal system. 20 years ago nobody believed that it is possible that Poland, Czech Rep., Hungary and others will be free, that Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, etc... will be independend countries.
But few years later Soviet Union broke down, Soviet Army came back home and millions of people in Central and East Europe become to be free. There will be also time for Cuba, China, Bielarus, North Korea and other contries. Red fanatics will not stop that.
Sadly, nobody will give back life to millions of murdered people.

matwis, thanks for those words...
yeah..some day this regime will be bringed down. And people will be able to have free speach and their OWN properties, and all the human rights a country deserves.

But like you said...the lives that were lost,... will only remain in our hearts.
Both, the people killed for their will to be free and the ones vanished trying to scape over the sea.

Meanwhile....we gotta keep struggling.


My respect towards you matwis.

You have something precious: freedom in your mind. You are invincible, because they can't manipulate your mind, reason and soul.
They are lost. Communism did not work good in any country. The most obvious prove is that they can not propose anything except brutal force to keep people in they system. Everywhere communists were governing, they imprisoned and murdered people who had other views, they had to establish censorschip to prevent people to know the truth. People escaped and still escape from communistic countries to countries where is "terrible capitalism". It is difficult to show many examples of people who chose oposite direction of emigration ;-). Their time is close to end.

All the best fot you!
I hope you are not hurt by "Dennis".

Is it acceptable that in the site like that criminal totalitary ideologies are glorified?
I want to remind that communism resulted in at least dozens of murdered people in many countries. It is really NOT FUNNY!
Would it be also OK for you if any guy put here eg. wallpaper with nazi symbols?
I may understand that many people in Russia still are under influence of soviet (now in national form) propaganda, but I am wondering why it is accepted by others, and nobody protest here.

BTW: soldier on original photo had many watches on his hands (stolen) but they were erased by censorschip.

I think your first number was more realistic. :-)

But I have only one thing to say in reply to your little rant:

When capital and the ruling classes apologise for: colonialism, the 7 day working week, children in coalmines, the Opium Wars, the massacre of the Paris Commune, slavery, the Boer War, Apartheid, anti-union laws, the First World War, trench warfare, mustard gas, fascism, the Great Depression, asbestosis, the Mafia, DDT, McCarthyism, the electric chair, environmental degradation, the military suppression of Greece, Malaya, Indonesia, Chile, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Turkey, the Gulf War, trade in human body parts, Exxon Valdez, deforestation, the destruction of the ozone layer, exploitation of labour and the deaths of 50,000,000 communists and trade unionists in the 20th century alone, then - and only then - will I consider apologising for the errors of socialism.

Pwned. :D

You forgot about earthquakes, tornados and ectinction of dinosaurs. :-D
Your explanation is childish, however typical for commies propaganda.
If someone else is doing something wrong it does not give you right to harm other, innocent people.
If you really think that number of victims of communists was "closer to dozens that to dozens of millions" no discussion with you is possible, like with neonazis who say that there had been no genocide in Auschwitz. It is also possible, but I doubt it, that you are just ignorant, in that case read more about revolution in Russia, GULAG, Vorkuta, enforced famine in Ukraine , Nazi-Soviet (Ribbentrop-Molotov) pact resulted in II World War, Katyn, Red Khmers in Cambodia, Cultural Revolution in China, crimes in North Korea etc, etc... you can find a lot of information even with a use of google.
If you think that capitalism is wrong and communism is good, compare the level of life in North Korea and South Korea, West and East Germany (before reunion), East an West Europe. And try to explain, why people risk they life trying to escape from "Eden on Earth"?

This is not the place to get into a polemical discussion about the relative merits of capitalism and communism. But if you talk about comparing the level of life in different systems, how about comparing the level of life in Russia under Communism and under capitalism. Russia is now a devastated, looted wasteland, a shadow of its former self. The army which crushed Hitler's Wehrmacht has been humiliated and ruined. The people have been reduced to beggary and prostitution. Every corruption and decadence created by the Western bourgeoisie has been introduced into Russian society, corrupting the young and polluting the nation's moral fibre. The Soviet Union was a great superpower; now Russia is a looted shell of its former self. Lenin found a backward, agrarian society and he created an industrialised world superpower. He must have been doing something right.

It seems to me that you did not notice that Soviet Union LOST cold war. Your "good" system bancrupted. Communism does not work, it is a dream like perpetuum mobile. Thats all. Maybe it would have been a nice dream but the problem is that you forced hundreeds of millions of people in many countries to live in that "experiment" that costed many of them life, properties, health or/and morality.
It was better in communism? Don't tell me such fairy tales, I remember that time. Why such many people lost life trying to escape by wall in Berlin? You had to shoot them to stop in your "dream"! Read what a man from Cuba is writting you here.
Maybe you should ask yourself why have you lost? You have the biggest country full of natural resources and a lot of people. Russia have everything nedded to build the richest society in the world. But... why you were and still are poor?
Now, you pay the price for giving, now and in the past, a rule to people who had not respect people and their rights, both in your and other countries.

Did you asked yourself why people in most of european countries that were depedned on SU, that were controlled by your armies during half of century now are living much better than Russians?
Maybe you should not have to allow to rule your country former KGB-ist or other guys who despise peoples, their life and will. Maybe you should not to follow the dreams about "superpower"? Maybe you should concentrate on your own problems like powerty and others that you mentioned, and not to try to rebuild "empire". That dreams cost! It is time to wake up!
And please, don't write about morality in Soviet Union. Too many people were murdered, robbed, raped and lost their health in your camps.

From the moment of its birth, the Soviet Union was encircled by enemies who wanted nothing more than to strangle it in its cradle. The Western imperialists invaded the Soviet Union in 1918 (the 'Intervention') and started a Civil War in which millions of workers and peasants were killed. It was those same imperialists who had started the First World War, a completely unnecessary conflict in which countless millions were killed and which reduced Europe to ruin, caused by nothing more than the imperialist Powers of Europe trying to divvy up the spoils of imperialism. It is true that Lenin, and after him Stalin, set up a system of corrective-labour camps, in which thousands and eventually millions of people were imprisoned. However, this was entirely necessary - there were elements within Soviet society who longed for the return of the capitalist-imperialists, who were eager to sell their country to its enemies. Indeed, in 1991, they did precisely this - Russia was literally sold off to the highest bidder. Not since the time of the fall of ancient Rome has such cynical treason been seen. These traitors and enemies of the working people existed in Lenin's time and in Stalin's time; they formed a vast Fifth Column inside Soviet society. Without the Gulag, these elements would have thrown open the gates of the nation to Hitler's Wehrmacht, thereby handing victory in WWII to the Nazis. By preventing this, Stalin saved the world from the nightmare of a Nazi takeover.

And most of the ruling classes of the Eastern European nations had eagerly collaborated with the Nazis during the War; their oppressed peoples were liberated from the Nazi yoke by the Soviet Red Army. The threat of a renewed attack from the imperialists remained after 1945, doubly so since the West had the Bomb and the Soviet Union had only its conventional forces to protect itself. To draw Eastern Europe into the Soviet sphere of influence was therefore an absolute stategic necessity - there could be no repetition of Hitler's surprise Blitzkrieg of 1941. And the policy worked - the West did not invade again for another four decades.

You talk of the millions who suffered and died in the camps; what of the millions who suffered and died in the wars of imperialism, in the slums and ghettos of capitalist societies, and in the Nazi death camps? The Soviet Union, and its armed forces, saved the world from that. Слава!

...which is why I called it 'Communist Victory' rather than 'Red Army Victory'. And by then it was officially called the 'Soviet Army' anyway. ;)
