Question by Rev-’em-up Wright: Was Nikita Khrushchev right?
“I once said, “We will bury you,” and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.”
Communist Party Leader
Russia still exists, and it is still Nikita’s Russia.
The USSR was communist in name only, they believed in economic socialism, but the communist party ruled as fascists. As with Nazi Germany, the Nazis claimed a government that was socialist, again economic socialism, but they too ruled as facists. And in both cases being a member of the “party” meant one was above the common people.
GunnyC, of course he was talking about Russia and the USSR, after all he was Russian. Who else would he refer to as “we.” Of course he was speaking about Communism and the Marxist/Leninist movements that brought the communists to power in Russia and formed the USSR.
As John McCain said about Putin, “when I looked him in the eye, I saw KGB.”
Joan S, yes, of course, but mother Russia still exists and always was the power behind the USSR. Although Reagan took credit for ending the Cold War, it was actually the economic conditions that killed the USSR. But make no mistake, dealing with Russia is the same as dealing with the USSR.
