Disgusting Communism – or who is afraid of Lenin, Mao and Stalin?


Disgusting Communism – or who is afraid of Lenin, Mao and Stalin?
by Shazde Asdola Mirza

It all starts with the sad story of a peasant boy who doesn’t have enough to eat, the worker girl who can’t afford medication, and the elderly pensioner who is thrown out of his little cottage. You are made to feel bad about being bourgeois and educated, but not doing anything about those atrocities.  

So you ask the all-knowing comrade, “Can we fix it by social security, by public education or job creation?” No is the answer! There is no use doing all those “soft capitalist” things … only true Socialism leading to Communism can save the world! So to the jungles, the dark rooms and the dark lords we go … to find that ultimate alchemy to cure all the ills of this earth.  

History shows that, you are really unlucky if your dear socialist revolution actually succeeds and you land in the Commie land … I mean real unlucky. Talk about eating one’s own children, because no monster has eaten more of its own children than a successful Socialist revolution! Forget about the old atrocities, as the mind numbing brutality of the new election-less, press-less and merciless utopia makes your old royal enemies look like the best of friends!  

Then after decades of pain and despair, you wake up one day … lying among the 20 million corpses killed by comrade Stalin – the 50 million souls tortured to death in comrade Mao’s cultural revolution “reeducation” camps – the killing fields of their true apostles in Cambodia, comrades Pol Pot and Yeng Sari (the photo). Wake up and see how taking the power of choice, the possibility of ownership and the freedom of speech, turns any community into a zombie nightmare.  

The stench of death and decay is so overwhelming, after sleeping with the murderer commies like the Chaochesque of Romania, Anvar Khoja of Albania and Kim Il Jung of N. Korea … that you can only seek absolution by serving something holy – maybe Allah, perhaps Islam and their glorious representative on Earth: Grand Ayatollah Imam Khamenei.

Welcome to the Disgusting Socialism … currently broadcasting as the Disgusting IslamioAssLickism!

 just to add to your question of HOW....

Back in 82  the communist party was ahead of cdp (christian democrats)in Italy as far as the numbers of eligible voters and the cpi claim was that if the votes are not rigged ITALIA will become......even they were tied to the pope's shooting .

 guess what ? with in 30 days there were articles after articles that Mr. Berlinguer the head of the Italian communist party was share holders in more than 30 European countries and owned 12 companies himself with PROOF...

and the party pulled out of election over night.     Maziar

Go see Shazdeh, i believe he has some of those new Islamists "light beers" still hidden in his refrigerator :)

All you said about Rouzbeh and Siamak and some others, we already know all this and it has been already discussed here in this same Iranian.com.

But you are right, I have never heard that Kianoury was advocating the Armed Struggle during his whole life as a Toudehy leader.

Nevertheless, as I already said, this topic is too sensitive for me and I would rather to stop it here.

Have a good beer...

But beer isn't good for the headache!

Well, it seems I struck a familiar chord!

by Farah Rusta on

Gucci, Maxmara, Kaviar or  Gstaad (the most exclusive Swiss ski resort) Marxists (I know a family of Iranian Marxists who regularly take their skiing holidays there), the point I wished our socialist experts could kindly expand on is how one can reconsile one's subscription to Marxist/Socialist doctrine with their excessive appetite for capitalist products and services?

Mr Targol we have more than one or two Hitchins in our midst and no Mr Puck they are much more sophisticated than Mr Ghotbi and Co. In fact a number of them come from the same circle which at one time had Mr Targol's Tudehi idol, the late Morteza Keyvan, as a regular member. Sadly Keyvan did not live to witness how his former comrades hit the big time under the Shah's drive to modernize Iran and fortunately his name remained untarnished.


But my question remains standing: how can our champaign socialists justify their extravangant life styles?


ps - Mehman jaan I will gladly cook you an Aash with yek-man-roghan-roosh any time my dear (no pun intended) :)




Hoshang Targol

Souri jan, you're not helping my hangover!

by Hoshang Targol on

Obviously your some 30 years' old biase is too strong to even merit a careful reading of two paragraphs.

Not sure where you get this notion of "Killing the people for politics," but unlike me and you people in Kurdestan for the past 31 years have not, do not and will not have the luxury of NOT BEING KILLED BY ARMED FORCES OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC.

HENCE; SELF-DEFENSE. Now you could relate to that can't you. If someone attacks your house, kills your elatives, what will you do? Just sit back and cry, or hit back and scream? Again the option of self-defense is a healthy strategum.

While many Tudeh members were escaping Iran, through Kurdestan they were incredibly happy to be guests of Komala, especially since we didn't hold up their working with mullahs against them, but have always hoped they would learn from their mistakes.

I'm afraid your knoweledge of history of armed struggle debate within Tudeh is not as comprehensive as might think.

Way back in the 40's and 50's Tudeh has a military wing, folks like  Col.Siamak, and others, and actually UNLIKE THE LEADERSHIP OF THE PARTY, THE OFFICERS WERE STAUNCHLY INDEPENDENT MINDED. Read Khosro Rozbeh last defense : Eta'at Korkoraneh, (Blind Onbedience), but that's not all.

Back in the 60's before the Sino-Soviet split even Kianory was in favour of Armed Struggel, but that's not all.

Even during IR and Tudeh's playing up with mullahs and teaching them all their trick from K.G.B. vault! there were members within the Tudeh leadership that were opposed to any cooperation with mullahs but never had the chance to dominate the discussion.

So, you and I could sit back in our leisure in Californian and Canada and think whatever we wish, the fact of the matter is that Iranian Kurdistan has been militarily occupied for the past 31 years, becuase Kurdistan WAS THE ONLY AREA THAT REFUSED TO SUCCUMB TO MULLAHS, and as natural as breathinga the air, self defense is a human reaction to repression and armed onslught. 

If you had the slightest knwoledge of CPI's policy towards self-determination you would have never distorted it to "seperation from Iran," but unfortuantely you dont!

Now, I gotta get a beer to stop this headache! 

Oh, workers of the world where are you , when I  need you?!?!?


Champaing Socialists vs. Ashtray Intellectuals

by Souri on

Ms Rusta,

Your comment made me smile. I remember when we were student back in 80-82 in France, we were used to joke about ourselves, calling ourselves the Ashtray Intellectuals (Les intellos du cendrier).

That was referring to the gathering in a small room, smoking and discussing about the politics and how we would change the future!

by Souri on

As I have previously mentioned, I am an old fashion old lady, which now have kissed all those studying/discussion about the armed struggling.

As for Komala (Koumleh) and Pishmargian, I knew them some 30 years ago, as a Toudeh sympathizer. Apparently they did not change one iota of their vision.

This is what I had categorized as the "more radical left" in my comment (Niloofar's blog). Actually I was referring to you, in that post.

To be honest, I think I have nothing to add to what I have already said about Armed Struggling. Killing the people for politics, has never been  approved neither, by true socialists.
That's why Toudeh always disagreed with those other left parties and that's why Toudeh party has been called "khianat kaar or Sazesh kaar" because it never approved "terror".

I don't approve Komala's strategy . Neither do I agree with the separation of Kurdistan from the land of Iran. Sorry, I am not a radical communist.

No more comment :)

Ms.Rusta I've seen, know and read many good articles from

by Hoshang Targol on

many a "Gucci" socialists. The most outstanding one was our erstwhile Comrade Christopher Hitchens ( before he switched sides, god could he write, I'll still give a body part if I could write like that!!!!)

I'm sure ( I hope) our fecund Iranian diaspora has at least one or two like him. As they say it takes all kinds of Lefties to really mess up the  working class, opps, I meant, to liberate the working class.

P.S. Working class doesn't need anyone to liberate it, wink, wink!!!

Or is it Max Mara Marxists? We had, and still have plenty of them around in Iranian circles. The so called socialist shick! Can our experts enlighten us please?



Hoshang Targol

Rea jan, I beg to differ

by Hoshang Targol on

Just keep in mind the incredibly vast, different, range of people who claim to be "socialist," you have people from Pol Pot to Adorno, all calling themselves Lefties!

Gramsci has an excellent line on religion and its intrepetations, I don't recall the exact quote  right now but it goes something like this : There are as many intrepetations of a religion as there are belivers," simply meaning there's no one solid take on any religion.

While socialism is not a religion ( or hopefully shall not be considered as such) there are as many schools of thought in it as there are individulas calling themselves Lefties!

Check out Raymond Williams and his take on " Many Roads to Socialism," unlike me he was an original genuis.

Puck & Souri

by Hoshang Targol on

Got rid of grandchildren yesterday noon, just have to get rid of, get over this hangover and I 'll be fine. 

Souri khanom you are incorrect. CPI and its Kurdestan Organization popularly know as Komala, actually have a very sophiscticated policy on Armed Struggle, in order not to cause any more misintrepretations I'm going to post two entire paragraphs from one of Komala's documents, you be the judge.

" Armed Struggle

It's an inalieanable right of people in Kurdistan to confront central government's onslaught through various forms, including armed resistance. Having armed themselves against a regime that deals with them through oppression and unrestrained violence, armed struggle is a from of resistance that people have chosen as various points. Komala has always strived to also organize this aspect of resistance as a part of the strategy for a revolutionary movement in Kurdistan, thus utilizing armed struggle in the service of achieving a people's victory, and protecting their rights and liberties. Such principled orientation shall be maintained.

The Peshmerg force operates as the armed wing of a political party, and its purpose and content is one and the same as other aspects of Komola's actvities. Armed struggle is part and parcel of Komala's strategy for the movement in Kurdistan. For this reason, at the current stage the potential capacity of this force shall be maintained and augmented. The issue of at what point, in what scale, and in which location of Kurdistan how this force chooses to organize its armed action is a concrete matter, stemming from our concrete analysis of the conrete situation is each stage. Our prirority at the moment is creation of a social space in which workers and oppresed people of Kurdistan could get together and assemble in various civil formations, institutions, and organizations, and utilizing such organs for improvement of their everyday lives, and tools in struggle against the Islamic Republic. Our goal is for the masses to believe in their own power of consciousness, unity, and direct action, at work and at home. Our armed struggle shall be in the service of accelerating this process and facilitating victory" (Report to 12th Congress of Komala July 2006).

As you could see, this is a bit more nuanced than your average "urban gurrilla" operations! Here we have armed struggle as a component to WORKING CLASS SELF ORGANIZATION, as a contingency, not a fetish.

Hoshang, this is were we differ

by Souri on

"this formation that not only has organized two ( mind you not just one,
but two) General Strike in Kurdestan, has had a continuos tradition and
capacityof Armed Struggle against IR for the past 31 years, is
thoroughly non-sectarain and strongly belives in...."

The Armed Struggle factor is what I don't agree with. I had already noticed this when I was reading your comments in that other blog by Niloofar, but wasn't sure about that until I read your statement today.

I'm radically against any Armed Struggle as a strategy. A 31 years armed struggling, is already a sing of defeat!

We may consider  the Armed Struggle as a short-term tactic (like during the time of an Armed Revolution) but subscribing to a strategy of Armed Struggle and terror is completely against the  Socialism ideology.

It is this kind of theory and strategy which lead to Maoism and Pol Pot-ism. Sorry!


Hoshang Targol

Shazdeh keep in mind you enjoying your "weekend," two days off

by Hoshang Targol on

thanks to disgusting socialism, and it's not just establishing of 40 hours of week as an standard, but many other social priviliges and rights that would not have been possible without the world wide socialist movement.

As far as "marxism-leninism," its all a myth. Marx did say on his death-bed that he was not a "Marxist," all that's worth from his ideas is his critique of capitalism, three volumes of Das Kapital, and the way world economy is behaving looks like everyone could use reading that book at least once! Same thing with Lenin, until he was alive not a single person uttered the word Leninism, actaully on the eve of October Revolution every single member of the central comiitttee was opposed to his views, none were "leninist" then. Right after his death his ideas are reduced and distorted as a dogma. Lenin's most outsatnding acheivement was HIS LACK OF DOGMA, INSISTENCE ON CONCRETE ANALYSIS OF THE CONCERET SITUATION. Did he made mistakes? yes. Was he an absolute genius? yes. So Mrax and Lenin and whoever are relevant as far as they have something to teach us, other than that they become mythical non-sense.

Again, this whole notion of dictatorship of the polotarai ( hope you smiled with that typo, this discussion is getting a bit too serious, moment, moment, I'm talking to my favorite Shazde!) Marx's example is the Roman Dictator that was actually ELECTED by the pleb, so in the Roman notion of Dictator, the dictator get his dictat from the people, he's elected to carry out that public dictate ( I'm not making this up, check out  Agamben or Habermas on Roman Law and they point out the same thing, I should have written: that's where I read this explanation!)

But, you are 100% on Romania, Albania, Cambodia, and tavabin,....

One last point, though you very correct on pointing out grouplets with membership of less than one's fingers, or quivelant to one's fingers! not all Left formation in Iran are like that, there are actually a handful of execptions , one that I'll leave you with is this formation that not only has organized two ( mind you not just one, but two) General Strike in Kurdestan, has had a continuos tradition and capacityof Armed Struggle against IR for the past 31 years, is thoroughly non-sectarain and strongly belives in,  and practices UNCONDITIONAL POLITICAL FREEDOM.


Democratic socialism good, authoritarian socialism bad!( that's as simple as it gets)

Keep it up, and kick those Stalinist asses!!!

Moment, moment , I almost  forgot, while in San Fransisco don't forget to read comrade Wilhelm Reich! I think he was greatly influenced by your take on San Fransisco, or vis-versa ( you by his ideas on...)!!!




We must agree to disagree dear Shazdeh :)

by Souri on


And I don't mind it. As long as we are respectful to each other, we can disagree on many things. Indeed we actually do :)

1) About the Central Committee:

You are smart and informed enough to know that any system would need a Central committee. It just can't work in any other way. Be it the  Monarch, or  Congress or any other institution, but in any system you need a top head who govern.

2) As you mentioned yourself previously, Communism has been founded on the base of Marxism. So it is absolutely normal to assume that the Proletariat would be the vanguard and the central (brain ?) of that system. As the Persian poet said: Shir e bi yaal o dom o ashkam ke did? The whole idea of Marxism is based on the power of the proletariat as the motor of the Socialism. So as Lenin said : che bayad kard?

3) At the end I must say: Not so fast!

You said :

" So those geniuses, who knew nothing about the human nature and the human history, turned their utopia into the worst of worst dictatorships, by subjecting everyone to the wishes of a brutal centralized leadership..."

What makes you think that those "geniuses" didn't know anything about the human's nature and history ?

I don't know who you have in mind exactly, but if you read all those "geniuses" works (books and other writing) , you will sure agree with me that they were the real "geniuses" very knowledgeable in History and Philosophy, even in Physics and Mathematics.....etc etc.

Don't judge a book by its cover, dear.

Let's give the credit where it is due! (and I don't talk about Mao and Co)

Ceauşescu, did lots of wrong , he was a savage dictator.....but as a result, those poor Romanians,  are the most intelligent people I have ever met as a nation! They have  very big capacities, they are smart, most of the educated ones speak two/three foreign languages, they are so knowledgeable in Philosophy and History and Social Sciences...(and were the bests at sports)....etc etc.

Of course I wouldn't give a minute of my freedom and comfort here in the West, to live under such dictatorship. Life is too short !

سوری خانم: اشکال اصلی‌ در "دیکتاتوری پرولتاریا" است

Shazde Asdola Mirza

The Dictatorship of Proletariat (DP) is the cornerstone of Marxist-Leninist ideology, and the source of all their troubles.

How can you bring peace and humanity to a society which is under the Absolute Rule of a non-descript semi-god called the Proletariat?

Their solution was that the Party would be the vanguard and the brain of the DP, with the Central Committee as the brain of the Party and the Glorious Leader as the brain of C.C.

So those geniuses, who knew nothing about the human nature and the human history, turned their utopia into the worst of worst dictatorships, by subjecting everyone to the wishes of a brutal centralized leadership.

It is not by chance and bad luck that all the truly Socialist countries turned into disastrous and murderous dictatorships ... it was embedded in their design!

Without freedom of speech, people become brainwashed into craziness. Without freedom of ownership, people become slaves to the government. Without democratic elections, governments become the breeding grounds for power hungry and inhuman monsters.

Thanks for your kind notes.

You are right about the liberal social ideas and actions of the 20th century which have been a cornerstone of the modern West, since the 18th century. However, please note that the discussion here is about the Disgusting type of Socialism, exampled by the likes of USSR, N. Korea, Romania, Albania, Cambodia, etc.

Those truly disgusting Socialists and Communists had utter disdain for the western Social Democracy, as very early on noted in all Lenin's writings. For them Social Democracy was an ally of capitalism and even worse, which had to be destroyed for the Dictatorship of Proletariat (i.e. Rule of Thugs) to prevail.


Maybe not related, but good to know anyway :)

by Souri on

"After the first stroke, Lenin dictated government papers to Nadezhda; among them was Lenin's Testament (changing the structure of the soviets), partly inspired by the 1922 Georgian AffairJosef Stalin, Grigory Zinoviev, Lev Kamenev, Nikolai Bukharin, and Leon Trotsky.
About the Communist Party's General Secretary (since 1922), Josef
, Lenin reported that the "unlimited authority" concentrated in
him was unacceptable, and suggested that "comrades think about a way of removing Stalin from that post
." His phrasing,
(Russian cultural assimilation of constituent USSR republics), and it criticized high-rank Communists, including "Сталин слишком груб", implies “personal rudeness, unnecessary roughness, lack of finesse”, flaws "intolerable in a Secretary-General".

At Lenin's death, Nadezhda mailed his testament to the central
committee, to be read aloud to the 13th Party Congress in May 1924.
However, to remain in power, the ruling
troika Stalin, Kamenev, Zinoviev — suppressed Lenin's Testament; it was not published until 1925, in the United States, by the American intellectual Max Eastman. In that year, Trotsky published an article minimizing the importance of Lenin's Testament, saying that Lenin's notes should not be perceived as a will, that it had been neither concealed, nor violated;[103] yet he did invoke it in later anti-Stalin polemics."

My point from posting this text above, is just to mention that even the greatest humanist ideology can fall in the hands of totalitarian Men and end up to be a disaster for the people.

The real problem of the humanity is not the "ISM" in my opinion. The real problem is the " Power".

There's something strange about this!

All disasters of the humanity happened because of the love of human being for the Power. Once they have it, they don't want to give it up!

It will take a long while for a politician to be detached from his human instinct and leaves the pride and the pleasure of dominating others.

Many revolutionist, were good at first, then after they succeed to convince the people and reached to the position of power, they didn't want to loose that position.

When I was a child, I have seen an interesting movie casting by Marlon Brando, about Zapata, the Mexican rebellious (1910).

Of course that was an American movie :)

But it shows how people may change when they move from one side of the bench to the other side!


BTW: Mehman had a very good point here. You should listen to him.

And the Islamist Commies are just absolutely fundaMental insane, illiterate , idiotic lunatics (actually words fail me) ....


However there are a  number of aspects of some "socialist" "systems" which are quite laudable, which also include civil liberties, civil societies etc. for which I'm rather grateful and I admire as in e.g. Norway, Kerala etc.....

Shazde don't waste your time on "yek-shabeh" experts

by Farah Rusta on

When one cannot put forward a solid argument, one hides behind the "go-learn-more" shield. What our Sock puppet (SP) and a few others miss is that socialism, like any other ism has its own shades including Euro-socialism. The socialism of Tony Blair, for instance, was radically  different from the socialism of his predecessors from the same party. Incidentally Shaban Jafari was much more of a socialist than Firooz and Eskandari put together.
