A Sunday Meeting

Anyone stuck for something to do this weekend might consider attending a meeting of The Stalin Society. It will take place in Birmingham on Sunday the 8th of July from 1pm to 4pm at Café One. A talk will be given by Carlos Rule on How the Soviet Union prepared for the Nazi Invasion:

“Carlos Rule will counter the bourgeois slander that the Soviet Union had not been prepared for the Nazi invasion of 1941.” [1]

No doubt speculation that one’s time and historical understanding would be better served by staying in bed all day, or by toddling off to the park in a seizure of boredom to throw bread at ducks, is bourgeois slander of the worst kind.

Bourgeois slander is the making of a false statement by a person who owns property. I would like to know exactly where Carlos Rule heard or saw such a statement.

Oh, so losing all those men and territory to the Nazis was a deliberate strategy on the part of Stalin. Well, that explains everything, doesnt it? No one would do that sort of thing on purpose, would they?

'Akaky' edges towards what has hitherto been a state secret. At the time, Stalin took strategic guidance from a certain Comrade Baldrichvich who had, so I am told, "A very cunning plan".

The rest is history!

Did anyone attend? Was it riveting?

"Did anyone attend?"

I didn't. I'm saving myself for the talk on How the Soviet Union prepared cakes and tea for the Kulaks.

Deogolwulf, better stay away from that one. I hear that they're preparing the same cakes and tea for the bourgoisie...

Not only were they ready but they were preparing to attack. Only the pigeons stopped them.
