The sovietization of the USA

“What ultimately ended the nihilist Soviet system

Was it not that Russians finally tired of the Kremlin’s lies and hypocrisies that permeated every facet of their falsified lives? 

Here are 10 symptoms of Sovietism. Ask yourself whether we are headed down this same road to perdition. “

“A job in the bureaucracy or a military assignment hinged not so much on merit, expertise or past achievement. What mattered was loud enthusiasm for the Soviet system. 

Wokeness is becoming our new Soviet-like state religion. Careerists assert that America was always and still is a systemically racist country, without ever producing proof or a sustained argument. “

The Soviet Union was run by a pampered elite, exempt from the ramifications of their own radical ideologies. 

Now, woke Silicon Valley billionaires talk socialistically but live royally. Coke and Delta Airlines CEOs who hector Americans about their illiberality make millions of dollars a year. 

What unites current woke activists such as Oprah Winfrey, LeBron James, Mark Zuckerberg and the Obamas are their huge estates and their multimillion-dollar wealth. Just as the select few of the old Soviet nomenklatura had their Black Sea dachas, America’s loudest top-down revolutionaries prefer living in Martha’s Vineyard, Beverly Hills, Montecito and Malibu. 

The Soviets mastered Trotskyization, or the rewriting and airbrushing away of history to fabricate present reality. 

Are Americans any different when they indulge in a frenzy of name-changing, statue-toppling, monument-defacing, book-banning and cancel-culturing? ” VDH

    There is a reason why kids get Anne Frank & Civil Rights Mythology shoved down their throats nonstop but the lead up to the Russian Civil War is ignored.

    Mystery Grove Publishing has done two books (so far!) about the RCW, both autobiographies from White Russians, both very good. Their Peter Kemp trilogy is also very good, following Kemp as he fights for the Nationalists in Spain (joining the Foreign Legion), organizes partisans against the Nazis in Albania, and then bounces around French Indochina where he has a run in with Aaron Banks.

  2. Eliot says:

    Mystery Grove is fascinating. I would love to know who it is.

    Sergei Obolensky’s memoir is especially astonishing. That’s a man who lived ten lives.

    Whoever it is, is clearly concerned about what’s happening in the States. Every book they republish is a warning.

    “America’s loudest top-down revolutionaries prefer living in Martha’s Vineyard, Beverly Hills, Montecito and Malibu”

    I would point out that these are places where annoying upper middle class people live. The American bourgeois. And these are places the old WASP ruling class would never live.

      Montecito Monarchist report: appears the newly ensconced Duchess Meeeeeghan and her Cuckolded Consort Prince Harry have called the local county sheriff’s office nine times already, to deal with stalkers on their secluded property. So much for their progressive agenda to “defund the police”.

      Old WASPs shunned publicity, which did make them far better neighbors than these two new publicity whores. Early Montecito was a creation of 19th Century Chicago commodities wealth, before it became a nouveau Hollywood retreat.

      At one time, Montecito philanthropists quietly donated locally and formed the cultural backbone in support of surrounding community. Now the new money keeps to themselves, while in return courtesy we ignore them too.

      If only they would provide vagrancy camp sites on their own vast properties, instead of merely verbally championing “progressive” causes at awards ceremonies when the cameras are running, before they retreat to their own gated compounds.

        “Now the new money keeps to themselves…”
        That is the last thing new money does now.

    • Tess says:

      Which Sergei Obolensky do you mean, the one who wrote a book about Russian Masonery?

      • Eliot says:

        Tess,

        Prince Sergei Platonovich Obolensky Neledinsky-Meletzky.

        He became an American and worked for the OSS in Europe in WW2. He was 55 when he joined.

        In 1943 he’s parachuted into Sardinia to persuade the Italian forces to come over to the allies. Which works for the most part.

        One of the Italian divisions was of dubious loyalty, they had fought alongside the Germans in North Africa, and were known as Fascists. The Italian commander, General Basso, believed they would retreat with the Germans, to continue the fight. Brigadier General Roosevelt has just landed in Sardinia, and his solution is personally reviewing them the following morning without a security detail.

        It’s just Roosevelt, and now Lt. Col. Obolensky. Roosevelt tells Obolensky to leave his side arm behind. No guns.

        Roosevelt ends up charming the Italians, pulling men out of formation to talk to them about everything from boxing to their distinguished performance in North Africa. They come over to the allies.

        Obolenksy is told later by one of the soldiers, that they had planned on murdering Roosevelt. But they were so impressed by Roosevelt’s display of bravery, that they abandoned the plan.

    Third Generation Fail principle – revolutionary elites protect their own progeny and by the third generation of elite privilege, revolutionary zeal has dissipated into unsustainable internal corruptions.

    • Mark Logan says:

      Deap,

      You reminded me of Hedrick Smith, “The Russians”.

      You’ve probably read it but just in case, Smith was the NYT Moscow correspondent for a long time and the Soviets gave him a remarkable amount of freedom. Yours was precisely Smith’s observation. Stalinism failed in Russia because it takes a Stalin to run it properly, and the Russians wanted no more of that kind of brutality.

      When managers had to fear death for failure or corruption it worked pretty well. The Russians rose from Europe’s poor neighbor to the first in space. The lot of Russian peasants hadn’t changed much from the 17th century and Stalin brought them railroads, even electricity in some places within a short span of time. However when Stalin passed his draconian methods largely passed with him. Corruption became rampant almost overnight. As soon as the mid 70’s that Third Generation kicked in. Many Russians Smith encountered actually pined for the good ol’ days when things got done without backsheesh and petty tyrants jealously guarding their turf and bribes to the exclusion of everything else. An inherent flaw of an inevitably all-powerful bureaucracy of Marxism, unless run by an iron hand in a spiked steel glove swinging a 20lb sledge, ala Stalinism.

      They didn’t run out of American or any other kind of dollars, they ran out of initiative and competition. “They pretend to give orders and we pretend to obey.” The scope of harm Marxism does to a people and a culture is difficult to fully fathom.

  4. Tess says:

    I think that being the Soviets fond on historical materialism ( HisMat ), they have been way overpassed in the creation of alternative realities by the disciples of Karl Rove…

    I do not see something like the Soviet system coming onto you, but a dystopian one, neither it is Joe Biden, nor exclusively Sillicon Valley billionaires who are orchestrating all this…See for yourself…Why nobody names ever this dude?

      tess

      You are a Brit? I have often found lodging in Sheikh Jarrah at the American Colony Hotel. The Jewish population has been encroaching on this neighborhood for a long time, driving streets into it, etc. The US has surrendered it all to the Israelis.

    • Fourth and Long says:

      Larry Fink would be my nominee for most evil person on the planet.

  5. Tess says:

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    – Karl Rove.

    Wiki-

    On August 29, 2003, retired ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV claimed that Rove leaked the identity of Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, as a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee,[54] in retaliation for Wilson’s op-ed in The New York Times in which he criticized the Bush administration’s citation of the yellowcake documents among the justifications for the War in Iraq enumerated in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union Address.

    • Deap says:

      Watch out for Wiki, Tess. It is highly edited, totally partisan today, and often downright dangerously inaccurate.

  6. FeinGul says:

    The Soviet System ended because they ran out of American funny money, aka dollars.
    That won’t work here. Not for us.
    And how do Historical Analogies help?
    We have lost our B@lls and the will or knowledge to fight, if it wasn’t Leftists doing us in it would be Rightists or someone else.

    We learn to fight or perish; justly and good riddance if we lay down and die.

  7. Tess says:

    I think it is nothing Soviet what is being unleashed on us all, but something much more sinister.

    Recently discovered, through a mention by Pepe Escobar, I found this blog by Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben quite interesting and on point.
    He has a bunch of entries on the pandemic….
    For your consideration….

      • Tess says:

        Yeah…You may find also interesting these quotes he brings in in another entry by Simon Weil in the pre-war period, how it sounds exactly as the current heavy, opaque, and suffocating atmosphere

        https://www.quodlibet.it/un-u2019atmosfera-pesante-opaca-e-soffocante-u2026

        «A heavy, dull and suffocating atmosphere has settled over the country, the men are depressed and discontented and, nevertheless, they are willing to suffer anything without protest and without being surprised.
        This is the characteristic situation of times of tyranny. The general discontent, which superficial observers regard as an indication of the fragility of power, actually means exactly the opposite. A dull and widespread discontent is compatible with an almost unlimited submission for tens of years; when the feeling of disaster is joined, as is the case today, by the absence of hope, men obey until an external backlash restores hope to them ».

        (Simone Weil, 1940)

        “The feeling of security is profoundly altered. It is not necessarily a bad thing, since there can be no security for man on this earth and the need for security, beyond a certain limit, is a dangerous illusion that distorts everything and makes minds dull, superficial and foolishly satisfied; it was well seen in times of prosperity, and it is still seen in those social categories that believe themselves to be safe today. But the total absence of security, especially when the catastrophe that is feared seems to exceed the resources of intelligence and courage, is no less harmful. We have seen in the past the economic crises deprive young people of all hope of being able to fully enter the ranks of society and earn a living and nurture a family.Now we see a whole generation of young people in the same impasse… The modern media of communication, the press, the radio and the cinema are, after all, powerful enough to influence the mood of a whole people. Of course, life continues to defend itself, protected by instinct and some form of unconsciousness; and yet the widespread fear of great collective catastrophes, passively awaited like a flood or an earthquake, increasingly conditions the feeling that each one can have of his future .”

        (Simone Weil, 1939)

        • Barbara Ann says:

          Tess

          ..the need for security, beyond a certain limit, is a dangerous illusion that distorts everything and makes minds dull, superficial and foolishly satisfied“.

          This is an excellent description of our present circumstances: The ever expanding list of petty tyrannies in the name of risk aversion that the state Leviathan imposes on our every day lives is infantalizing us all. COVID-19 is merely the latest excuse. We are being conditioned to entrust our safety in all realms of life (our thoughts not being exempted) to the all-powerful security state apparatus, whilst at the same time abandoning our innate capacity for risk assessment. This sure feels like Sovietization.

          The distortion Simone Weil describes is exemplified by Larry’s last post. I think it quite likely I will meet my end clothed in Hi-Viz, wearing a mask and stuck in a lockdown curfew – perfectly insulated from mostly trivial threats – when I am vaporized by the nearest ICBM. Most of my acquaintances do not share this assessment and consider I am the one with the distorted risk perspective. We shall see.

    We’ve got the Colonial oil pipeline shutdown due to “Eastern European” hackers. The commerce secretary yesterday on “Face the Nation” advises there will be more of these hacker attacks. I guess that’s a good way to deflect from the damage done by the covid lockdowns.

    Fauci says we should keep wearing the masks, advises we are now used to wearing them so, why not?

    Gov DeSantis of Florida declares if Antifa comes across our border, they will be dealt with swiftly and harshly.

    My wife ran into a woman we haven’t seen in 14 months at the beauticians.. She finally decided it was ok to get her hair done. She’s looking awful, pale and just sickly looking. It must pay to get out now and again. I had a medical appointment today, a lady I spoke with said she’s also seeing folks for the first time in 14 months. She also says these types look awful.

    I only know of one covid casualty. He had a thriving advertising business. Today, he’s a lunatic.

    Colonel,

    A pipeline inspector called into Alex Jone’s show and said that the Fuel pipeline imbroglio was a 100% manufactured event. The pipeline inspector said that if they had really wanted the fuel flow back up and going, they would have sent out guys to open up the valves and get the gas flowing. This pipeline inspector says that he’s surveyed the Colonial Pipeline in the past.
