Claire’s bio of Margaret Thatcher “There Is No Alternative”:
journalists and academics all loved alger hiss. they always side
with the communists and they control the flow of the narrative.
ernest hemmingway totally misreported spanish civil war but
he never gets called on it. maintained wealth and celebrity status.
I'll give you just one little tiny guess.
Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?
American Thinker ^ | January 16, 2010 | Jason McNew
In a bizarre 1984 book [New Lies for Old], ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception. ..."
"Golitsyn's argument was that beginning in about 1960, the Soviet Union embarked on a strategy of massive long-range strategic deception which would span several decades and result in the destruction of Western capitalism and the erection of a communist world government."
"Golitsyn published his second book, The Perestroika Deception, after the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. This book contained further analysis of the liberalization, in addition to previously classified memoranda submitted by Golitsyn to the CIA. The two books must be read together to get a complete picture of Golitsyn's thesis."
Nice find...thank you!
Score another for the French, it was French journalists that wrote The Black Book of Communism.
Claire and her brother Mischa are both top-notch writers. I count their mother as one of my friends.
Great article about the history of communism and it’s creeping deviousness.
Anyone able to translate from the Russian?
I saved the article to my computer.
Eye opening to say the least.
Thanks TigerLikesRooster.Though Mikhail Gorbachev is lionized in the West, the untranslated archives suggest a much darker figure.Just adding to the catalog, not sending a general distribution.

For anyone interested in a comparison between the evils of the Nazis and the Soviets, I recommend the movie, “The Soviet Story” (2008).
It is quite graphic in content, much of which is interviews with some of the participants.
There are more political science professors and journalists in this country than there are germs. And there are none to be found who have any interest in delving into the detailed workings of a political culture that murdered tens of millions of its people and directed the most pervasive totalitarian state in history? What a bunch of worthless numbnuts.
