Stalin Society reply to a Daily Telegraph article written in ‘response’ to it’s educational program.
The Stalin Society was formed in 1991 to defend Stalin and his work on the basis of fact and to refute capitalist, revisionist, opportunist and Trotskyist propaganda directed against him.
Stalin’s name is synonymous with communism, the October revolution, and the overthrow of capitalist exploitation and imperialist tyranny. For this reason, the international bourgeoisie have spearheaded their attacks on working and oppressed peoples by slandering Stalin and the Soviet Union.
They have employed a variety of tactics to this end over the last 90 years, but have been guided to a large extent by dissidents who betrayed the Soviet people, most notably Trotsky and his followers. The powerful US Based Hearst press, sympathetic to Hitler, was a pioneer in these methods, but the rest of the capitalist world’s media and political elites have not lagged behind.
It is worth reading “Lies concerning the history of the Soviet Union” for an exposition of the main planks of this anti-soviet propaganda.
One of the main post-war tactics has been to conflate Hitler and Stalin, Fascism and communism. While these trends — of working class power and extremely reactionary aggressive expansionist capitalist imperialism — are in reality opposite ends of the political spectrum, so much effort has poured into generating this filthy propaganda, that attacks of the type dealt with here are all too common.
Guy walters, a student at Sheffield, had the columns of the Telegraph opened to him to pen the following diatribe, which we answer in this video:
Fear not the fight for truth – it will set you free!
