The Cold War:  Soviet Communism's Murderous Legacy

anarchteacher
The list author says: "The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was a murderous parasitic regime responsible for the deaths of over sixty million of its own subjects by its state security forces, and over twenty seven million persons killed during the Second World War. This later devastating conflict was enabled by the duplicitous actions of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and his Politburo of killers (see book #7 - Victor Suvorov's The Chief Culprit: Stalin's Grand Design to Start World War II, below).

In 1920, Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises demonstrated in his path-braking article, "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth," (see item #25 below) that all attempts to establish socialism would not work, for reasons of informational efficiency. Because of the absence of a market-based pricing system of profit and loss, socialism could not perform the necessary economic calculation to survive. The Soviets turned to economic parasitism through espionage, theft, and expropriation of technology from the West.

For Soviet parasitism and the transfer and theft of technology from the West which built the Soviet Military-Industrial Complex, see volumes #28-37.

Historian John Earl Haynes has composed several extremely helpful bibliographic resources on Communism and Soviet Espionage which scholarly researchers will find very useful. Here are the links:

"Nearly 30 million prisoners passed through the Soviet Union's labor camps in their more than 60 years of operation.

The Soviet Story - 30 Languages - 2 Disc Set (NTSC & PAL)
"Marx and Engels were the first proponents of genocide. The National Socialism of Hitler and the Soviet Socialism of Lenin and Stalin were based on systematic mass murder. The film traces the implementation of these ideas which led to the deaths of over one hundred million persons. Particularly revealing is the close ideological partnership of the bloody Nazi and Soviet regimes."

The Chief Culprit: Stalin's Grand Design to Start World War II
"Stalin's grand strategy leading up to World War II grew from Vladimir Lenin's belief that if World War I did not ignite the worldwide Communist revolution, then a second world war would be needed to achieve it. Stalin saw Nazi Germany as the power that would fight and weaken capitalist countries so that Soviet armies could then sweep across Europe."

"Between 1929 and 1932 the Soviet Communist Party struck a double blow at the Russian peasantry: dekulakization, the dispossession and deportation of millions of peasant families, and collectivization, the abolition of private ownership of land and the concentration of the remaining peasants in party-controlled "collective" farms."

"The definitive work on Stalin's purges, Robert Conquest's The Great Terror was universally acclaimed when it first appeared in 1968.

"It is estimated that some three million people died in the Soviet forced-labour camps of Kolyma, in the north-eastern area of Siberia. Shalamov himself spent seventeen years there, and in these stories he vividly captures the lives of ordinary people caught up in terrible circumstances, their hopes and plans extending no further than a few hours."
