The Soviet Union

The butchers who ran the Soviet Union killed between 25 million [The Black Book of Communism] and 60 million [Rudolph J. Rummel] innocent humans - men, women and little children.

The monster Stalin may be the greatest mass killer of all time.


The home of evil.
Lenin's tomb, Red Square, Moscow, Russia.

Stalin was the no.1 killer of Soviet citizens in WW2

The Russian butchers

Just like the national socialist butchers, the international socialist butchers killed millions of innocents, men, women and little children. It is incredible that anyone still defends these monsters.

Even in 1930, westerners knew the communists were starving their own people:
The comic book Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (1930) (search for pdf) is pretty accurate in its description of the brutal Soviet state.
Bizarrely, the Tintin author was later embarrassed by it. I don't see why. He got it right first time.
See another sample and another sample.

The death of Beria in the darkly hilarious movie The Death of Stalin (2017).
Putin's creepy modern dictatorship in Russia banned this movie.

The Soviet Empire

For 70 years, occupying countries, enslaving their peoples. A brutal totalitarian empire. Genocide, gulags, mass shootings, famine, deportations, tyranny. Sadistic torture to death in interrogation. Gang-rape of women prisoners. Mass rape of civilian women in war. The gassing of prisoners. Starvation to death of prisoners.

A police state, run by fear. No human rights. No civil liberties. No freedom of speech. No freedom of religion. A one-party state, tolerating no opposition or criticism. Threatening the free world with nuclear weapons. Threatening Western Europe with invasion and slavery or extinction.

The Soviet Union was truly a curse upon the earth.

The democide of Germans in Eastern Europe, 1945-48

A massive and unacknowledged ethnic cleansing and democide of Germans took place in the Soviet sphere in Eastern Europe after victory in 1945. The worst killing was in Poland and Czechoslovakia.


The imperialist Soviet Union brutally occupied the countries of Eastern Europe for over 40 years. All totalitarian philosophies tend to be imperialist.


No trade unions

As well as being imperialist, the Soviet Union oppressed the workers and banned workers' trade unions.

Global terrorism

The body of the mass murderer Lenin gets its regular preservation treatment.
Images here and here and here.
Lenin killed 4 million people in democide.
His body should be destroyed and his tomb bulldozed.

The Cold War

"The Germans took a somber decision. Upon the western front they had from the beginning used the most terrible means of offense at their disposal. They had employed poison gas on the largest scale and had invented the 'Flammenwerfer.' Nevertheless, it was with a sense of awe that they turned upon Russia the most grisly of weapons. They transported Lenin in a sealed train like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia."
- Winston Churchill nails it yet again, on Lenin's return to Russia from exile in 1917.

[On a book about Russia written in 1913:] "a cataclysm of world-shaking proportions in Russia was only four years away from the publication of the book: what inkling did the author of the book have of that? The answer is 'None whatever.' ... There is no sense of impending doom or catastrophe in the book, no intimation that a regime is soon to be established in the country that will regularly kill more people in a day than its predecessor in a century."
- Theodore Dalrymple considers the book Provincial Russia (1913) that (like everyone else) completely failed to see the horror that was coming. How appalled the 19th century Russians would have been if they could see 20th century Russians.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
