I will rehash lessons from yesterday. We asked a simple question , why were the Jehovas Witnesses put in jail. We got lets blame the Russian people except Communists built and ran the gulag. Then we got true communism has never been tried.
Then the morons of the far left reflexively went into Israel and the Joooos. The far left stooges can not help themselves as anti semitism is at the heart of their twisted faith.
Yesterday we touched on the topic of residents of the gulag. The myth perpetuated by the stooges is that the workers are treated better under communism. However the reality behind the rhetoric is that the authoritarian state runs the means of production. The plant is apt to be run by a political hack who should be in the DMV.
This is not my description but the description of a former boss who was an engineer in the USSR.
In a free market business has to compette for workers. The problem with illegal aliens is that they lower the playing feild and unscrupulous businesses like Tyson Chicken connected to the Clintons will exploit these workers. In a functioning labor market companies compette for skilled workers.
Yet in the Soviet Union we have a series of interesting crimes. If one is twenty minutes late for work twice you can go to the gulag. This happened to General Ledbed's father. If you take office suplies home you could be sent to the gulag. Most of the above are treated by personnel departments but leave it to the Marxists to exploit people worse then the capitalist ever did.
What were the gulags in actuality ? The common misperception is the gulags were prisons. No the gulags were neoslavery where the state exploited people for crimes real or imagined. Mining , Making musical instruments, lumber are not labor needed for the upkeep of the prison.
Then there is another more curious resident of the gulag. Spouse of the enemy of the people were sent to the gulag. Your husband commits an act of alleged Communist apostasy or falls out with the current clique you could be sent to the gulag along with your relatives. The constant need for purges in the ranks of Communist systems bears an uncanny similarity to organized crime. However organized crime has a more efficient business model .
Let the excuses begin. How do workers end up in the gulag for being late or taking a pencil ?
