Can the CCP govern 1.3 billion web-savvy, corruption-hating Chinese?

Can the CCP govern 1.3 billion web-savvy, corruption-hating Chinese?

By Sol W. Sanders BEIJING – Only a few hours in this capital of a country with 1.3 billion people are enough to pose the question of whether the control of the Communist Party may not be cracking under the growing strains accompanying the exposure of its economy to the outside world. Stalin perhaps had […]

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 […]

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, […]

Next president can cope with Putin redux and China's sinister rise … if his name is not Obama

Next president can cope with Putin redux and China's sinister rise … if his name is not Obama

By Lev Navrozov “China Builds the Bomb” is the title of a 327-page book written by two American nuclear scientists and published in 1988. I bought this book as soon as it hit the bookstores. Indeed, the book invited the readers to pay special attention to Chapter “China’s Nuclear Weapons Tests, 1964-1978” (pp. 244-245). Quite […]

The choice for Russian voters: Who will uphold freedom?

The choice for Russian voters: Who will uphold freedom?

By Lev Navrozov These days we are living in the world in which the future political development of Russia is of great importance to the entire world. Why? Before the “revolution of October 1917,” Russia had been viewed by those most enlightened in the world as a country of great hope. It is beyond an […]

China's dictators are not stupid like Stalin and Obama is their ally

China's dictators are not stupid like Stalin and Obama is their ally

By Lev Navrozov In my columns, I have been writing a lot about PRC’s aggressive policies, its growing military might, and its global ambitions. Today’s PRC’s dictators are not as stupid and naive as was Stalin, who kept his country isolated from the entire world. Nobody, except Soviet spies and high-post ambassadors he sent abroad […]

From a prison state to a dream country, now endangered

From a prison state to a dream country, now endangered

By Lev Navrozov To emigrate to America from “Soviet Russia” was like going to live on some distant planet reproducing your favorite country: A dream. But one fine day those who ruled Russia decided to stage an unusual experiment: they allowed several hundred “Soviet citizens” to emigrate from the “Soviet paradise.” Naturally, we were highly […]

The 'trusting American voter' and the end of freedom

The 'trusting American voter' and the end of freedom

By Lev Navrozov We trace the mental development of mankind only as far back as, say, one of the tribesmen of that distant time would if he could write and did write on a certain surface that we have found x thousand years later and were able to decipher what he wrote at that time. […]

Unreported: Putin’s six million guaranteed votes

By Lev Navrozov By the autumn of 1917, Russia had become, culturally, a free society. The Russian 19th-century prose was intensely read in all culturally advanced countries, Chekhov’s plays were staged, several composers were considered classical, Chaliapin’s voice was admired… Now, since the autumn of 1917, Lenin, who was only for a short time in […]

Now that they're safely dead, it can be aid: The 'geniuses' Marx, Lenin and Stalin were idiots

By Lev Navrozov We know very little about the beginnings of mankind. But we know a great deal about the life of mankind in the past three millennia from its writings, paintings (recall the Italy of the Renaissance), its printed sources, and about its recent history from its radio broadcasting and now from the Internet.
