1st of May, the celebration of Gulag camps

Many millions of people are singing and doing rallies today in order to support a system that never has and never will work. Most of the worst crimes of history have been accompanied with the same songs and the same ideas. One of those crimes was the Gulag camps, mostly forgotten by people since socialists everywhere always see to it that they bury the dead and then don’t talk about it. The same thing would probably happen to Hitler and the Holocaust if it wasn’t for the convenient turnaround making National Socialists “right-wing” and with that label they of course need to be spoken about as often as possible.

What was Gulag? “GULAG” is an acronym for the Soviet bureaucratic institution, Glavnoe Upravlenie ispravitel’no-trudovykh LAGerei (Main Administration of Corrective Labor Camps) that operated the Soviet system of forced labor camps. Gulag camps existed throughout the Soviet Union, but the largest camps lay in the most extreme geographical and climatic regions of the country from the Arctic north to the Siberian east and the Central Asian south. Prisoners “work” was typically unskilled, manual, and economically inefficient. The combination of direct shootings form the guards, extreme climate, hard labor, meager food rations and unsanitary conditions led to extremely high death rates in the camps. It is hard to accurately calculate the exact number of dead within the GULAG, but the toll is in the millions, most likely tens of millions.

We should never forget this crime as well as the madness of Pol-Pot or the biggest killer of all, Mao Tse Tung. But somehow these rallies on the 1st of may still go on today, in many countries they are even national holidays. National holiday to celebrate the main killer of all ideologies; socialism. Isn’t that nice?


  1. It's not that strange. Children in Sweden don't even KNOW what a gulag was nowadays. And it's not strange that they don't know as the schools in Sweden are very socialistwinged.

    Humanity experienced it's worst ever crisis 70 years (+-10 years) ago. I see signs of a new crisis coming just like before but it's going to much bigger and world altering than Nazism/Communism was... and still is (socialism).

  2. What's so bad about Gulags? Who cares if 5% there died? You don't. Do you care about wage-slavery, starvation, wars and fascism caused by liberalism?

    Counter-revolutionaries, i.e. former slave owners, capitalists, royalists etc who actively work to undermine the socialist society have to be dealt with just like the bourgeoisie uses its police and military to deal with wage-slaves.

  3. Socialism is not communism. You just wasted a lot of time writing that post when you were wrong from the very beginning.

  4. It depend what one means with "socialism". The word can also be used as a collective name for all -isms on the left.

    One can also call Stalin and the rest of the mass murderers for being socialists as this is more correct than calling those communists since the communistic idea don’t end with socialism as those countries did. There is another step.

    But you are right, it is not exactly the same, the basic ideas about collectivization and socialization are however the same and, more importantly, what comes out of it is the same. The difference between some colors and whether or not one uses 6 years economic planning or 5 years is hardly even semantics. Even social democrats can be thrown on the same heap; their idiocy takes longer, but the end results are still the same.
