    Yes, it was socialist. I'd argue it wasn't a particularly good form of socialism, but there was no capitalist class in Yugoslavia. The sixth...

    Hi Ismail, just dropping by to thank you for the amazing work you do scanning all sorts of old and rare documents and books. We probably would disagree on many many many many things but I feel compelled to commend good work when good work is done.
    By the way, do you have any info on anti-religious campaigns in socialist countries? Be it accounts of events, official documents, examination of their effectiveness or whatever? Including Albania, of course, but not exclusively, I'm actually curious of lesser known examples if there are any.

    Hello, are you in the CPGB-ML?
  4. 1. The historical context does justify itself in practice, but what of contemporary politics? I know as a Hoxhaist you deny they are socialist, but look at Cuba or North Korea; they are being squeezed, bullied and vilified by a veritable coalition of major imperialist powers, as well as suffering economically due to not being able to spread their countries’ resources well enough.

    2. No comment here really, though I would like to know about the exact degree of control by the workers in the workplace.

    3. No comment. Thanks for clearing this up though.

    I’m quite conflicted over what to align myself with, as everyone seemingly has a good defence of their tendency and good criticisms of their opposing ones; it is difficult to know what is true in such a maelstrom of information.
  5. As the foremost Marxist-Leninist on this website I thought you would be the best person to ask this; what is your defence of Socialism In One Country, and of the notion that the USSR under Stalin was a democratic workers' state with "actual existing socialism"?
