oy vey goyim

I mean the privileged relationship between Italy and Russia goes back to Mussolini and Stalins mutual respect

2018-02-03 00:02:55 UTC  

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

2018-02-03 00:04:47 UTC

2018-02-03 00:05:24 UTC  

Then weirdly enough Himmler once praised Stalin and the Soviets over the Italians as the Italians weren't "revolutionary like the fuhrer"

2018-02-03 00:06:10 UTC  

He killed gorillions of his own people goy

2018-02-03 00:06:22 UTC  

yes,stalin did that

2 to 60 million wtf

@Krieg#0336 It's like the holocaust numbers now!

2018-02-03 03:44:50 UTC  

@Biermann#5625 hilarious and original meme

2018-02-03 04:35:30 UTC  

very original @Biermann#5625

2018-02-03 04:55:20 UTC  

@Krieg#0336 Population of Russia 120 million. 60 million killed. Population became 140 million. This is American mathematics mate.

2018-02-03 04:55:48 UTC  

I agree

2018-02-03 04:56:11 UTC  

even as an anarchist, I still think that the death toll under stalin is ridiculously exagerated

2018-02-03 04:56:53 UTC  

its more like 25 mil if you count from both famines AND from ww2, and even that is pretty exaggerated.

2018-02-03 04:57:16 UTC  

but population growth and population in general would've boomed under this period due to Stalins high amount of industrialization

2018-02-03 04:57:29 UTC  

for instance, before stalin life expectancy was around ~37 or so

2018-02-03 04:57:42 UTC  

it became like 60 something by the end of the reign

2018-02-03 04:58:00 UTC  

which meant that more children were being born (becaues medicine) and people were living longer

2018-02-03 04:58:10 UTC  

which counteracted some of the pop loss from ww2 and famines

2018-02-03 04:58:31 UTC  

but not nearly enough to facilitate +80 Million people in 20 years, thats just absurd

2018-02-03 04:58:45 UTC  

+40 Million at the absolute most is the most believable

2018-02-03 04:58:57 UTC  

Our estimate is 300k

2018-02-03 04:59:52 UTC  

death from Gulag + executions.

2018-02-03 05:00:19 UTC  

300k is a lot

2018-02-03 05:00:31 UTC  

Estimates I've seen is about 1-2 million, but thats just because the Soviet Union is pretty damn big place.

2018-02-03 05:00:33 UTC  

And is of a shameful legasy

2018-02-03 05:00:38 UTC  

besides, there a lot of kulaks to get rid of

2018-02-03 05:00:59 UTC  

honnestly, the kulaks deserved it, but I don't like the fact that Stalin sent anarchists to the gulags too

2018-02-03 05:01:19 UTC  

besides that act of Left Secretarianism, Stalin was a pretty cool noodle

2018-02-03 05:02:07 UTC  

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.

2018-02-03 05:02:45 UTC  

nonetheless, still sent to prisons.
