Boob tube culture: What if the U.S. electorate had been educated to think?

Boob tube culture: What if the U.S. electorate had been educated to think?

By Lev Navrozov I am going to say something I know may not be popular with the readers. I spent half of my life in Stalin’s Russia. I was born there, got married there, and I never knew what the television set looks like. My mother would say, “Why do you need to watch television […]

Stalin's dentist: Talent, that mysterious quality, is a rare thing

Stalin's dentist: Talent, that mysterious quality, is a rare thing

By Lev Navrozov England was our first love. Good Old England. There was no way for us who studied English to go and live there, which was our impossible dream. We got to learn so much about it from books and recordings. Chaucer’s “The Canterbury Tales” was the title of my wife’s MS degree. Our […]

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded 'progressive' assaults on freedom in the U.S.

From late-night arrests in the USSR to Soros-funded 'progressive' assaults on freedom in the U.S.

By Lev Navrozov I was born in Moscow; I went to a Soviet school, where I discovered that there were things one should never mention in class. In particular, my parents told me never to reveal to my classmates any conversations we were having at home and never to discuss anything going on in our […]

Memories of lost souls we befriended: American communists stuck in the USSR

Memories of lost souls we befriended: American communists stuck in the USSR

By Lev Navrozov While surfing the Russian Internet the other day, I came upon the Snob site (www.snob.ru), an “international Russian-language media project, which was launched in 2008, with the aim to connect international and global audience of influential, high-net worth individuals.” One item jumped at me right away: “Lessons of Patriotism from Tim Kirby,” […]

Much more to China than meets the (American) eye

Much more to China than meets the (American) eye

By Lev Navrozov Last week we had a call from someone whom we used to know some years ago: an intelligent young man, a brilliant computer specialist, with a keen interest in international affairs, at that time particularly concerned with Falun Gong persecutions going on in China. He had several Chinese friends associated with the […]

Big Government's nightmare: The Internet

Big Government's nightmare: The Internet

By Lev Navrozov Even Stalin would have had a very long way to go before becoming the owner of the globe. Russia, which Stalin seized as its absolute owner, had technologically lagged behind the countries with developed capitalist systems. Germany, for example, had become industrialized long before Russia. It is hard to imagine what Russia […]

A thing called freedom: Does Barack Obama control the United States?

A thing called freedom: Does Barack Obama control the United States?

By Lev Navrozov Some centuries ago, there originated a thing called freedom in some countries of Western Europe — and in particular in Great Britain and later in the United States. The founders of the United States created a unique society allowing a maximum amount of liberty for the individual and restricting government involvement into […]

The experts on slave states are not the analysts in free states who have never known totalitarianism

The experts on slave states are not the analysts in free states who have never known totalitarianism

By Lev Navrozov Let me recall our release from Russia in the early 1970s. The slave-owning “government” can mistreat any data on anyone and convert to slavery anyone except the “government” slave-owners. Freedom guarantees that the rights of any human being be defended in an independent court of justice if his or her human rights […]

Consequences of transferring the world's best technology to a slave state

Consequences of transferring the world's best technology to a slave state

By Lev Navrozov Marx and Lenin, and later Soviet propaganda, asserted that crimes and criminals exist due to poverty in the “capitalist world.” In their “socialist-communist world,” there will be no poverty and hence no desire for wealth. After the “socialists-communists” had seized power in Russia, Lenin became the head of the government. Why? Allegedly, […]

Revisiting the 'Revolution' of 1917 to put the Putin of today in context

Revisiting the 'Revolution' of 1917 to put the Putin of today in context

By Lev Navrozov What’s this? Don’t I know what is going on in Russia? The entire world is watching! And here I am recalling oh, God, those horrible events of 1917! The trouble is that as a result of chasing after what is happening this month, this day, this hour, this minute in a certain […]
