    When someone brings Holodomor they’re not even trying to understand what they’re even blaming, so out of tiredness, I don’t bring up the fact that the ones who ruined the farms and crops were the rich private landowners who didn’t want their properties to be turned over to the state. Holodomor is a capitalist genocide in what was a communist country.

    Think for a second: why would a country building an army, needing healthy adults, purposely cause a famine?

    Meanwhile every western genocide is about racism, slave-labour and exploitation of the land. Every single one.

    Also, nice fallacies you’re throwing out there, like that ad hominem at the end, truly marvellous.

        That logic about Stalin destroying the farms himself doesn’t even work. The country needed the farms and crops as much as any other country building an army. Are you gonna say next that he ordered the eating of babies and kicking of dogs?

        I’m not Stalinist btw, but history has facts, and landowners who were having their farms taken and wanted to make the communist party’s life harder are a fact. Bourgeoisie will be bourgeoisie no matter which country.

            Starving families =/= massive landowners. The ones hit by the famine were the families working for the landowners, most of them owned no land at all. If you want to blame someone, blame rich folks being pissy about not being able to exploit families on their farms anymore

                Likewise. I’d like to see how your “version of the facts” goes on the eastern countries. Have a good day.

                    I know about how you, all the way from the west, consuming only western media and participating in western politics, knows more about the east than eastern folks themselves. All the eastern countries and the global south know about what western people believe.
