Uh, Talsley, you do know there is a difference between Joseph McCarthy and the HUAC, correct? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:06, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
For one, McCarthy was dead by its reprinting. Mcc1789 (talk) 01:55, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Huh. Odd title.[edit]

You'd expect this to be some wingnut conspiracy theorist's inane prattle, not an actual Stalinist manifesto. TheMyon (talk) 17:48, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Up until the Seventh Congress of the Comintern in 1935, it was customary for communist parties to call for a Soviet America, a Soviet Canada, a Soviet Britain, a Soviet China, etc., since the idea was that the system in place in the USSR (with a Congress of Soviets and whatnot) would be replicated abroad. The Seventh Congress emphasized patriotic themes and the need for a popular front against fascism. Consequently, communist parties sought to "nationalize" themselves. This ended up culminating in the establishment of People's Democracies after WWII, which were said to be another road to socialism different from that of the USSR. --Ismailov (talk) 21:07, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
