"Now that the true character of the US political system is increasingly apparent to the whole world, now that the parasitical nature of its economic system is causing ever greater numbers of victims, now that the lies that underpin the US domination of world politics are finally being exposed, the time has come to take a serious look at what the US victory over the Nazis has brought us."

Well, that’s a load of c***, it’s Pravda.. but I repeat myself.
*WE* aren’t the ones who signed a treaty with Von Ribbentrop.
What a splenetic article. From what this guy says, one wonders why so many bust their butts to sneak into this place.
They are almost as bad as the American Pravda AgitProp we get from Ass.Press.
Lucky for the USSR, otherwise generations of western students would have found out that the allies had nearly as much reason to war on Stalin as they did Hitler. We would have been told how the typical soviet soldier conducted himself while beating the nazis, ie not much differently than their enemies. Not to mention how the soviet enslaved the vanquished for decades afterwards.
Actually the model used in America for nationalizing businesses so a country can become socialist is in fact the National Socialist model.
FDR liked the NAZI model and used it here during his time in office.
Most Americans when they think of nationalizing a company think of the communist model.
I have for the last two years posted about this very issue here on FR.
here is the FR Link:
Here is a little from the article:
“It was common in those days, as it is in ours, to identify the Communists as leftist and the Nazis as rightists, as if they stood on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. But Mises knew differently. They both sported the same ideological pedigree of socialism. ÂThe German and Russian systems of socialism have in common the fact that the government has full control of the means of production. It decides what shall be produced and how. It allots to each individual a share of consumerÂs goods for his consumption.Â
The difference between the systems, wrote Mises, is that the German pattern Âmaintains private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary prices, wages, and markets.Â But in fact the government directs production decisions, curbs entrepreneurship and the labor market, and determines wages and interest rates by central authority. ÂMarket exchange,Â says Mises, Âis only a sham.Â
That was the contention found in the book “The Managerial Revolution”, which was penned by a leftist during WWII (or at least, part of it was written before and during the war, not sure right now).
