Stalin thought he rescued Russia. Feedback
« on: March 04, 2009, 10:22:55 PM »
Stalin thought that he rescued Russia, but in reality it was Russia that was imprisoner of Stalin himself and his team in order to be saved in its history. 
 Earlier, Russia had identified as a commander Lenin, who helped it get rid of the nobility.   They represented the majority, it was necessary to save them. Stalin was as a "successful manager" at a time when society was ineffective team in one way or another to be in good standing on the continent.
 The concentration of non-free crowd to a free worker is employed theory and practice of Stalinism.  It's success can be measured by the inevitability with which it ended in August 1991.

Re: Stalinism never went away

Tim Wall at Moscow News Weekly wrote these words:

They say Stalinism is making a comeback, but it never went away.

If not in terms of Stalin's repressions and purges, then certainly in the Stalinist system of bureaucracy.

While the nascent army of bureaucrats that arose along with the consolidation of power by Josef Stalin had its roots in Tsarist officialdom, of course, the mutation was severe - and the results were catastrophic in human terms, from the millions who perished in the Gulag to the suppression of democracy and the general clogging-up of society.

While many of the more extreme forms of repression were reduced after Stalin's death, the other legacy of his system - an overweening reliance on bureaucracy, mindless paperwork, form-filling and box-ticking - survives to this day.

And this is a legacy that is inhibiting Russia's ability to respond to the current economic crisis.

Today's Stalinism is in the form of a million, often nonsensical Catch 22-type rules, perhaps originally designed to curb the free-for-all excesses of the 1990s. In reality, these rules inhibit any form of initiative on the part of enterprises and emasculate grassroots movements in society, so that civil-society initiatives that could hold authorities accountable find it difficult to get off the ground.

One example of how antiquated, Stalinist-style legislation holds society back can be seen in Russia's residency registration rules, which make it difficult for the inhabitants of small towns and cities where the main industry is closing down from moving to other cities where work prospects are better.
