And has not ruined any countries
oy vey goyim
I mean the privileged relationship between Italy and Russia goes back to Mussolini and Stalins mutual respect
Italy only got dragged into the war because of an autistic Austrian apart from that they both saw the capitalist west as more of a threat than eachother
Then weirdly enough Himmler once praised Stalin and the Soviets over the Italians as the Italians weren't "revolutionary like the fuhrer"
He killed gorillions of his own people goy
yes,stalin did that
2 to 60 million wtf
@Krieg#0336 It's like the holocaust numbers now!
@Biermann#5625 hilarious and original meme
very original @Biermann#5625
@Krieg#0336 Population of Russia 120 million. 60 million killed. Population became 140 million. This is American mathematics mate.
even as an anarchist, I still think that the death toll under stalin is ridiculously exagerated
its more like 25 mil if you count from both famines AND from ww2, and even that is pretty exaggerated.
but population growth and population in general would've boomed under this period due to Stalins high amount of industrialization
for instance, before stalin life expectancy was around ~37 or so
it became like 60 something by the end of the reign
which meant that more children were being born (becaues medicine) and people were living longer
which counteracted some of the pop loss from ww2 and famines
but not nearly enough to facilitate +80 Million people in 20 years, thats just absurd
+40 Million at the absolute most is the most believable
Our estimate is 300k
death from Gulag + executions.
300k is a lot
Estimates I've seen is about 1-2 million, but thats just because the Soviet Union is pretty damn big place.
And is of a shameful legasy
besides, there a lot of kulaks to get rid of
honnestly, the kulaks deserved it, but I don't like the fact that Stalin sent anarchists to the gulags too
besides that act of Left Secretarianism, Stalin was a pretty cool noodle
There were not many anarchists. Anarchists were kept in regular prisons separately from everybody else. Conditions for them were better than conditions of soldiers on the WW2 front.
nonetheless, still sent to prisons.
