Monday Matinee: The Soviet Story

The Soviet Story tells of the Soviet-German alliance that was responsible for the deaths of so many – the horrifying deaths of so many. This is history that must be remembered and thanks to FrontPageMag, I can bring this to you.

Only halfway through I can tell you that it is very well done and captivating, yet horrifying at the same time. It starts out with the forced famine in the Ukraine that killed 7 million people over the course of one year. It then moves on to the birth of Nazism and then to their alliance with the Soviet Union that led them through World War II.



This is another film that I would categorize as a must watch, however I am giving it a
Content Warning of VERY GRAPHIC. It is certainly not suitable for children.

Until your website allows 200-300 coments per post, it wont be taken seriously. Go to zerohedge.com and get a clue.

I knew about the Ukraine forced famine genocide but I didnt know about the German/Russian allience or the genocide post WWII.

Here is some frame of reference to gain perspective from another must short watch .

This is great scoop, thanks for posting it. It reminds me of Beck’s ‘Revolutionary Holocaust’ documentary from a while back. Very good production value and very informative. This is required viewing.

The Nazis performed mass killings based on race; the Soviets did it based on class. Both demonstrate the danger of collectivism.

It’s a tragedy that the Black Army of Ukraine fell for Lenin’s trap and got decimated and scattered while sending Nestor Makhno into exile.

Makhno and his anarchist army from the free territory of ukraine actually fought off both the red and white army, the white army even tried to confiscate the grain harvest like Stalin. The Black Army saved the harvest and the locals.

I’ve always been aware of the atrocities and interconnectedness of the Soviet Union and Germany but having to actually watch it first hand it pretty tough. That being said it should be standard viewing in schools across America and the world. Our enemies are the same as they’ve always been, nothings changed expect our unwillingness to admit they exist. The next time Russia falls could we please not aid them into becoming a evil incarnate….again. If we just drilled for oil and gas in our own country we could alleviate the European need to turn a blind eye out of necessity. I think the US needs to drill now it would put all the despots on notice. Chavez would disappear over night if we didn’t use their oil. The middle east wouldn’t be a concern of ours at all. Europe….well I don’t know they might already be gone anyhow after… Read more »

It reduced me to tears of grief and rage. Kudos to you for posting it, and thank you. Your courage is admirable.

I was in Budapest, Hungary, recently, and there’s a holocaust museum there that’s one of the greatest in the world. It’s called The House of Terror because that’s what the Soviets called it. The Hungarians have made this building into a monument to Soviet/Nazi vileness; a witness for all time to the horrors and bestiality of these people. Worst of all, though, is British and American collaboration during WWII. We have a lot of confession to do, and a lot of criminal behavior to face up to. Particularly FDR and the Democrats.

That’s why you can’t advocate against all form of tyranny from the most blatant example of the USSR to the more insidious form of democratic republics?

Would you please explain why you can’t square Libertarian disgust with the actions shown in that film? Under Libertarianism, such atrocities would never occur, at least on such a scale. I defy you to find private aggressors who have killed as many people as the states on display in this, never mind the rate just the volume is unsurpassed.

Libertarians aren’t big on national defense and since I’m not going to believe that one day everyone in the world is going to suddenly get along and play nice I believe we need a strong military to defend us. What Russia and Germany did are examples of what happens to people with little to no military might in the real world. How would libertarians create this world of peace and prosperity? Will you just explain it to China and they will get on board with it? No, some how you’ll have to remove the system they have now and institute yours….how? Open boarders? Tell me how that doesn’t ruin America inside of 1 year. Only in America and with an American out look can you even float this sort of political ideology. It requires a level of trust, responsibility and respect that not everyone in the world has or is… Read more »

Oh, with the exception of a few blind or naive enthusiasts who have just stumbled upon the idea of consistent Libertarianism/Voluntaryism, I’m not sure there are many of us who think it’s practically possible to snap into a stateless voluntary society overnight, or even in a year. That’s what discussion, suggested reading, and general informing are for, taking the non-hypocritical steps to potentially convince enough people that it could be managed. Libertarianism was really fleshed out by Murray Rothbard, who also coined the term anarcho-capitalism, and he was American, true enough. His mentor though was the Austrian Ludwig Von Mises. Rothbard also read and respected the earlier American Individualist Anarchists such as Benjamin Tucker and the Constitutional lawyer Lysander Spooner. But the first person truly noted to refer to himself as an anarchist was Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, a Frenchman. Proudhon was also sadly, a socialist like many of the early Anarchists… Read more »

Sorry for how long that reply got, I just have one more point. Communism if you go by the words of Marx directly was anarchic itself, but a socialist anarchy, which is why the Anarcho-Syndicalist (red and black diagonally bisected flags) are so dominant, even the anarchist militias Orwell was with in Spain were among them. But ideology aside, Marxism or Leninism is irrelevant, to a Libertarian, it is all repugnant due to the conclusions Socialism incurs when you accept Neo-Lockean concepts of property rights. Socialism is necessarily anti-propertarian, no private property, and central to Libertarianism is the idea that you absolutely own your own body. The two are diametrically opposed, under an anti-propertarian ideology you don’t even own yourself, you are the property (thus slave, literally) of every other member of society. Though, technically, such a precedent of 0 self-ownership is already set here in America through substance prohibitions… Read more »

Good film, they ought to show this kind of thing is highschool/college. Beck should watch it too – then he’d quit equivelating Nazis and the ‘far right’.

I’m critical of Beck, but it’s not fair to blame that incoherence on him. The incoherence belongs entirely, in this case, to the left/right paradigm itself. It is a “model” without context and based on a misleading aggregation of people’s beliefs to stick them somewhere on a COMPLETELY arbitrary graduated scale of nonsense. And that isn’t even addressing the fact that a 1-dimensional scale for something as nuanced as political ideologies is beyond inane, I was drawing in 2-dimensions before I was in kindergarten.

Anyone who picks up a pencil or pen and scribbles even a line is drawing in two dimensions it has a length and a height.

I would have been more impressed if you said that you’d figured out how to draw in 1 dimension by the time you made it into kindergarten because so far no one has ever accomplished that wink

lol ya I almost split it down even more to technically everyone draws in 3D from the get go but it’s just not always perceptible to the naked eye. I do follow your point though and I agree with you. I look at them on the scale of total control vs no control. I also look at the out come of each variety not their stated practice. 1940’s Russia and Germany to me are politically identical. While historically they’re called different names the end result was the same total government control. Anarchy at the other end of the spectrum seems like pre Magna Carta days and in the end a pointless societal step backwards. Which oddly enough I think that the two extreme ends wind up connecting if you just let Anarchy run its course. I think it would likely lead to a totalitarian state of sorts. I’m not sure… Read more »

Well, stateless Iceland survived perfectly fine for 300 years before they had a civil war instigated from the inside by statist elements. That’s over 3 times longer than the US went. Medieval Ireland did pretty well for the times as well. Somalia ever since the collapse of their socialist (brutal oligarchy) has seen increases in their standard of living almost across the board. Out of 15 factors in which such measurements are made, 13 of which have gone up. The “wild” west had stateless volunteer vigilante groups and collaborative groups of men of similar trades work to guard each other’s property from rustlers and the like. It also had effective conflict resolution systems (non-judicial arbitration) for dealing with disputes. The best part though, is that the murder rate per capita was lower than in the “civilized” areas of the States, many mining and frontier towns refused to allow in official… Read more »

Actually Beck placed them on the far left, on the far right he placed the Anarchists. Although the right/left flat line analogy is terribly simplistic,placing them on the political left is accurate for the analogy.

Didn’t The Messiah ram through the START ll treaty with Russia less than a month ago ? OUR Marxist-in-Chief is piece by piece destroying America’s Constitutional Republic; and our ability to defend ourselves. What is Homeland Security/DHS ? Answer: The Gestapo and NKVD/KGB apparatus of the 21st century. Of course, most Americans are too busy to be educated by the horrific scenes in this disturbing video. WE must pay homage to the massacred dead by totalitarian regimes; NEVER FORGET that these Orwellian Gestapo/DHS forces, buried in EVERY major American city, county, and state police forces, are already waiting for their orders from Big Sis and the Activist-in-Chief. WAKE UP AMERICANS; THIS CAN HAPPEN HERE….

There is the problem that the Constitution has within it the means by which any tyranny can be Constitutional through vague wording or amendment processes. This is on top of the fact that the Constitution has no real power of it’s own, it doesn’t grow teeth and attack Congress when it is violated. The only power/authority inherent to the Constitution, ultimately, is illusion derived from ideology and magical wish-thinking propagated by the court intellectuals commonly known as “pundits.” Statism is a religion, the U.S. denomination’s golden calf is a piece of paper. The hope, it seems, at least is that finally it seems a large number of people are chafing at their chains or realizing they are ultimately free-range tax cattle. And they don’t like it. We’ve ALREADY had several heads of state kidnap and incarcerate multitudes of people on mere whim and put down dissenting individuals exercising the freedoms… Read more »

Thank you guys! I posted it on my website at http://www.mediaaccess.hu/index.php?module=staticpage&id=208&lang=1
Europe, and especially certain countries like Hungary are making the same mistakes – welcome to George Soros Country! Hungary just became the European Union’s presidency. In other words, backed by George Soros. He now owns Europe and the USA.

Soros does NOT own the USA!

If he does, then I and my weapons are late to the fight and so are the rest of you.
