Going Straight For The Jugular
on 13 June 2013
This ruthless work ought to have been titled 'WHO'S Behind Communism', as it is an expose of the men and women who worked at the peak of the international communist/marxist movement, be they in the public eye or not.
This book doesn't deal with communist/marxist theory - for that read the writings (if you can bear it) of Marx, Lenin, Mao, Gramsci (especially the 'Frankfurt School')and others. It only touches on the marxist legacy of mountains of corpses but as it reveals the names (and often faces) of those responsible for almost one hundreed years of mass murder, national enslavement and general hell-on-earth, it is just as important as books that reveal those more statistical truths of the most evil and dehumanizing ideology of known history.
This review is based on the latest 2012 Ostara Publications edition which is updated and expanded. I have also read an original 1953 edition and a 2003 'Criminal Politics' edition. This latest edition is far superior and contains much that is relevant today. It is in chronological order, beginning with the Social Democratic Party (soon to be renamed the Commununist Party) and it's origins and finishes on the communist ANC of South Africa and the Communist Party of China. The chapters on how the USSR gained the nuclear bomb technology and the subversive activities of israelies (thieving) in furthering their own inhumane cause are particularly pertinent to the current era. Those responsible for these crimes - that have lead to the deaths and suffering of so many - are named and shamed here without compromise.
The author makes some play out of a supposed conflict of interests between communism/marxism and zionism, but fails to mention that the USSR was in fact the first regime to officially acknowledge the existence of the new state of 'Israel'. Bolsheviks have always made use of masks in order to conceal their true positions, so the issue of compatability between zionists and bolshevists is almost certainly not all that it seems.
This book is printed on good quality thick paper and the many images and diagrams have turned out crisp and well reproduced.
For details on the actual communist slaughter itself, i cannot do better than recommend R. J. Rummel's Lethal Politics: Soviet Genocide & Mass Murder From 1917, and on the actual communist revolution itself and it's immediate after-effects, Robert Wilton's Last Days of The Romanovs.
All in all, the 20th century cannot be truthfully surmized without the knowledge this book contains.
