A chegada de um trem na Rússia: "-É ele, é Lênin!" - 2 views

  •  
    ustamente para as primeiras festas da Páscoa revolucionária, o governo provisório anuncia distribuições excepcionais de manteiga, farinha e leite nas grandes cidades. A multidão, que já se comprime nas igrejas, poderá festejar em regime republicano a ressurreição de Cristo com gigantescos ovos vermelhos. Precisamente naquele dia, um trem chega ao anoitecer à estação da Finlândia. Na Rússia, é um costume bem arraigado acompanhar os amigos até a estação, bem como lá ir receba-los; mas para Lênin, que acaba de atravessar a Alemanha, seus partidários desconhecidos, que se multiplicam de hora em hora, fizeram as coisas direito. Como as fábricas estão fechadas para as festas, os operários convocados estão presentes, e, pela primeira vez, as célebres tripulações da frota do Báltico, vindas de Kronstadt. Dispuseram-se na plataforma auriflamas e rosas em profusão, O presidente do Comitê Executivo do Soviete da capital, Tchekheidze, espera em pessoa, de péssimo humor, após ter atravessado a praça por entre uma imensa multidão.

Herbert Aptheker's Distortions by C.L.R. James 1949 - 0 views

    • Aaron Palm
       
      CLR James in 1949 acknowledges that Aptheker was a toll of Stalinism and there are many flaws in his African American History.  
  • “It was the development of increased agitation on the part of non-slaveholding whites prior to the Civil War for the realization of the American creed that played a major part in provoking the desperation that led the slaveholders to take up arms.” (p.41)

    Upon the flimsiest scraps of evidence, the theory is elaborated that it was the withholding of democracy from non-slaveholding whites that pushed the South to the Civil War.

    “In terms of practice, as concerns the mass of the white people of the South, this anti-democratic philosophy was everywhere implemented. The property qualifications for voting and office-holding, the weighing of the legislature to favor slaveholding against non-slaveholding counties, the inequitable taxation system falling most heavily on mechanics’ tools and least heavily on slaves, the whole system of economic, social and educational preferment for the possessors of slaves, and the organized, energetic, and partially successful struggles carried on against this system by the non-slaveholding whites form – outside of the response of the Negroes to enslavement – the actual content of the South’s internal history for the generation preceding the Civil War.”

  • Stalinist Sleight of Hand

    Stalinism tries to manipulate history as a sleight-of-hand man manipulates cards. But unlike the conjurer, a stern logic pushes Stalinism in an ever more reactionary direction. For five years Aptheker covered up his anti-Negro concepts with constant broad statements about the “decisive character” of slave insurrections, Negro agitators etc. in the Civil War and the period preceding it. In 1946, however, in The Negro People in America, Aptheker broke new ground. He put forward a new theory that at one stroke made a wreck of all that he had said before. Let his own words speak:

  • ...1 more annotation...
  • t is clear that only at the last minute Aptheker remembered the slaves and threw in the phrase about their “response.” Historically this is a crime. The non-slaveholding whites who supposedly pushed the South into the Civil War were not in any way democrats. They were small planters and city people who formed a rebellious but reactionary social force, hostile to the big planters, the slaves and the democratically minded farmers in the non-plantation regions.

    What particular purpose this new development is to serve does not concern us here. What is important, however, is its logical identity with the hostility to Negro radicalism and independent Negro politics which has appeared in Aptheker’s work from the very beginning to this climax-pushing the Negroes aside for the sake of non slaveholding whites in the South.

    However fair may be the outside of Stalinist history and politics, however skillful may be the means by which its internal corruption is disguised, inevitably its real significance appears. There is no excuse today for those who allow themselves to be deceived by it. For all interested in this sphere, it is a common duty, whatever differences may exist between us, to see to it that the whole Stalinist fakery on Negro history be thoroughly exposed for what it really is.

Kennan Institute (covering Russia and surrounding states) : Media : - 3 views

  •  
    The Kennan Institute and National Public Radio in the USA has established an online audio archive of Soviet and Russian history. "The archive consists of recordings dating back to the earliest years of the Soviet state. Included are the voices and speeches of key political figures, including Lenin, Kerensky, Kirov, Beria, Stalin, Gorbachev, and others. Among the recorded interviews are Anna Larina (Bukharin's widow); Valentin Berezhkov, Stalin's wartime interpreter; Yelena Bonner, Sakharov's widow; and Lev Pevsner, a survivor of the Leningrad Blockade. There is also on-the-scene recorded sound of many events in Soviet history, including: the Russian and American armies meeting at the Elbe; Stalin's funeral; the August 1991 coup against Gorbachev. [...] The material comes from Soviet and Russian sources, the NPR archives, the archives of the BBC, and individual donors. Some of the material is in Russian, some in English. "

    The bulk of the audio files are in Russian, however if you scroll down closely there are speeches by significant Western figures too. Yet another excellent set of resources from the Woodrow Wilson Center.
