Ukraine's government finally admits that it's been faking population figures for years. In December, Kiev estimates there were only 37 million in the country. Down from 52 million when it left the USSR, in 1991. In reality, there are probably even fewer. https://t.co/U239DyxCin— Bryan MacDonald (@27khv) January 23, 2020
Which idk how its connected to the thread, to the "amerikan holodomor" of the 1930s, to some, other stuff, Idk, getting too senile in the brains tissues for to make sense of it all :,(
My Reply to Reviews of Two of my Books by Jean-Jacques Marie in Historical Materialism.
In December, 2021, Historical Materialism (HM), a British journal, published reviews of two of my books by Jean-Jacques Marie. Marie is the most prominent Trotskyist academic in the world today. (Marie’s review of Yezhov vs Stalin (YS) ; of Khrushchev Lied (KL)
Both of Marie’s reviews are full of crude personal insults and attempts at sarcasm. They are also full of shocking errors.
HM, a journal open to social-democrats and Trotskyists, participates in what I have termed the Anti-Stalin Paradigm – meaning, that they will publish nothing except negative statements about Stalin, regardless of the evidence. I assumed that they would reject my reply to Marie, and they did.
Here, then, is my reply to Marie’s incompetent and ignorant reviews. I welcome comments and criticisms.
