    Corrections needed... Trade is never a taboo in socialist cultures, and not even Iron Curtain can prevent trade. Russia has been trading with Japan for 70 years without any peace treaty. The only exception was Nazi Germany as they proclaimed...

    There was no famine in the U.S. in the 1930s, hidden or otherwise. Disruptions in U.S. agriculture during the Great Depression were all due to OVER-production. Farmers were dumping food because there weren't enough buyers or they couldn't get their...

    In colloquial English usage, hypotheses which support a central position are classified as arguments. They are still just hypothesis - they can be used to support theory. My central thesis, though, is pretty easy to get. In history, there's no...

    And two stories that got on my news feed today. https://www.livescience.com/64437-crickets-sonic-attack.html If anybody remembers the scandal with "sonic attacks" that has been going on for quite a while. The article I got was also wondering if somebody would send apologizing...

    3. "Out of anti-communist bias, historians use a ridiculous method to calculate deaths" Tis but a misconception here. Those historians who strongly engaged in anti-communist bias, are not historians, and vice versa. TBH, the method is actually ridiculously inaccurate in...

    Let me know which parts of your argument I've misrepresented? Let me be actually very clear here - what you listed are not arguments, they are hypothesis. Hypothesis are supported by arguments (sometimes presented as concrete facts), and when you...

    to GT @911, again And, you have just called me, &all the other people saying that the Holodomor was deliberate ... Nazis. No, obviously, I only said you are repeating after Nazis, which is a different thing altogether. Now you...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    What is it that you're trying to do/ask specifically? The purpose of the exercise is to test the theory and see if it holds to arguments. Preferably, graphically so. Is there any weak reasoning, unclear factors, or century-old dogmas. What...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    I see this topic has been again sidetracked by the likes of Greg Tingley, who fail to engage in comprehensive discussion. Apparently, I thereby failed to deliver the message that I am not in a denial of famines in USSR....

    Registered excess deaths in Ukraine were 1.54M for 1932-33, unregistered deaths are estimated at 1M-3M some of which would have occurred in the Ukraine, Volga and North Caucuses. Ok, now, come again, how do you register an excess death, exactly?...

    to GT @873 The Munich agreement, disgraceful as it was, was to buy time. So was the non-aggression pact, wasn't it? European powers were so much eager to collide USSR and Germany directly they decided that interests of Poland are...

    Consequently, I'm more apt to think that these non-gov't records might be much more accurate (because they were so personally and culturally relevant) than stuff that's in the-then official Soviet gov't files. As I pointed out before - it makes...

    to GT @859 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich_Agreement https://spartacus-educational.com/SPbritain.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Bloodstone Pls stop trying. You may think I am a flat-earther, but only because you yourself are Ptolemaist that does not yield to simple historical facts. to paws4thot @861 Let me point out the logical...

    to SFR @845 Well thank you much, because this is exactly the thing I was looking for! Not too much can be said about that database in itself - it seems to be a fairly good collection of links, not...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to GT @807 I STRONGLY SUGGEST that you read: THIS book "Hitler & Stalin, Parallel Lives", by Alan Bullock. Nope, not going to spend money on this book - I've seen enough of such manipulations already. As an expert as...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to Ioan @798 Yes please. Good to know - it shows a big difference between apologetic blabbering and actual data (one can compare that to today's noticeable demographic stagnation in Russia, which is an echo of 1990s economic decline). Anyways,...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to Ioan @771 So you're telling me that 10 different Western European governments (many of them empires in their own right) hid a famine within their own metropoles out of deference to a small distant power (that was the US...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to Ioan @755 I'm sorry, what Western European or American famines are you talking about? I'm looking at the Wikipedia article on the list of famines. This is exactly the point I was making. "If the tree falls in the...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to Troutwaxer @692 What I am taking about is that (according to information I received) famines weren't limited to teritory of Ukraine, or even USSR. They were, it seems, all over the Europe as well, and always involved all the...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to paws4thot @684 At the dawn of market capitalism many believed that the growth will continue on forever and there's no need to worry about possibility of crash, since some minimal controlling mechanisms provided a fairly long-term conditions for nation's...
  • Commented on What I published in 2018
    As I offhandedly promised in this blog some time in the last several months, I did buy this release of Labyrinth Index and, after completing it, I immediately complemented it with Rhesus Chart. I liked them quite a bit, as...

    This might have worked if Stalin hadn't become enamored with Lysenkoism. Plus, there was lots of outright ethnic bigotry. There are/were other factors. However, all in all, most of the Russian/Soviet screw-ups are attributable to stupidity/dogma. All in all, "stupidity"...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    @661 The best most objective account is Wheatcroft's book which I referred you to, which he did a lot of research in Ukrainian sources for, working closely with the best Ukrainian historians. Appreciated, I've skipped a dozen of pages of...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    to JH @630 First, there was an outbreak of hunger in post-war USSR, but nobody in the west ever mentions it, because a) it is not in line with official "genocide" rhetoric and b) it was solved fairly quickly with...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    But reading your post also makes me think that there are two parallel Russian influence operations Which is a good sign, because most people who invoke the "influence" don't even think too much when they say the word. So you...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    So let me turn the question: which regions do you think have not experienced a reduction in poverty? From our conversations, you believe that poverty has fallen in Europe, the Americas, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. So, you believe that...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    No one is saying there aren’t differences between the way capitalism works now vs Rome however its still the same economic system Excuse me, what in the world are you even talking about. This one particular mode of thinking has...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    My major complaint is that even though technical stuff is rather easy to learn, it is not easy to learn WHY it is working in such way, which is rather more important than just knowing it. People would ignore it...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    I sure hope I am, because with all that push-pull going around I tend to see that there's too much about technical details and too little about basic mechanisms and social problems. Probably it has something to do with education...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    I'm going to be repetitive at this, but there's one reason I don't believe 90% of modern "climate" folks in anything they do and say. It's the reasoning. The reasoning is the classical libertarian trapping of the "free market" that...
