wow you guys. this sounds terrifying.
thank goodness nothing like this could ever happen here!
“The Sentinel of the Revolution narrowed its eyes with even greater vigilance—and wherever it directed its narrowed gaze it immediately discovered a nest of wreckers.
“This therapy continued full speed from 1927 on, and immediately exposed to the proletariat all the causes of our economic failures and shortages.… The GPU puffed and panted in its efforts to grab off and drag off the ‘wreckers.’…
“Every industry, every factory, and every handicraft artel had to find wreckers in its ranks, and no sooner had they begun to look than they found them (with the help of the GPU). If any prerevolutionary engineer was not yet exposed as a traitor, then he could certainly be suspected of being one.
“And what accomplished villains these old engineers were! What diabolical ways to sabotage they found! Nikolai Karlovich von Meck, of the People’s Commissariat of Railroads, pretended to be terribly devoted to the development of the new economy, and would hold forth for hours on end about the economic problems involved in the construction of socialism, and he loved to give advice. One such pernicious piece of advice was to increase the size of freight trains and not worry about heavier than average loads. The GPU exposed von Meck, and he was shot: his objective had been to wear out rails and roadbeds, freight cars and locomotives, so as to leave the Republic without railroads in case of foreign military intervention! When, not long afterward, the new People’s Commissar of Railroads, Comrade Kaganovich, ordered that average loads should be increased, and even doubled and tripled them (and for this discovery received the Order of Lenin along with others of our leaders)—the malicious engineers who protested became known as limiters. They raised the outcry that this was too much, and would result in the breakdown of the rolling stock, and they were rightly shot for their lack of faith in the possibilities of socialist transport.”
—Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “The Gulag Archipelago,” Volume 1
I just read where Barnes and Noble won’t stock either Alex Berenson’s “Pandemia” nor RFK’s Real Tony Fauci books yet the oldie but baddie Mein Kampf is available in stock. Meanwhile the two books are sold out on Amazon yet nary a Lamestream peep huh?
Gato, Substack comments section on various pages, including yours, has been very buggy today. Some of us have been unable to reply, like, or expand comments unless we get lucky, even then, only one action before having to refresh the page. I'm contacting the authors to see if y'all have a good link to get help from Substack. I certainly hope this is not only on pages posting covid wrongthink. 🤨Thank you.
...and the Deep State & School Boards manufactured ‘insurrections’... labeling patriots & parents ‘terrorists’... threatening and imprisoning them...but, then something the demons hadn’t planned on... parents loved their children so very much, patriots loved their country so very much... the Love was so powerful... it was God’s Love...and they were Not Afraid Anymore.
Don't know if this link will work, but Elon Musk's tweet is on point. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1466074646240014340
This is exactly what we said would happen 20 years ago when they rammed the USA PATRIOT Act through. Now WE are the 'terrorists'.
There are many parallels in psychology and language, and this is not about isms. This is a very important and emotionally significant topic for me since it has to do with the history of my people, something that impacted me personally, too.

Has Gato or Substack started some type of timer or limitation on posting yesterday (Dec. 1)? I'm getting odd glitches on his and also Eugyppius stacks. Can't post. I get prolific at times. But can, the next day, so not banned. Perhaps a problem with my PC or Firefox? Pardon putting a tech support question here, but I see no way to directly message Gato.
Obviously this is why the left hates small/ private business. Not as easy to control. Shut them down and put them out of business over a bad flu season.
History repeats itself often. The greatest arrogance is thinking that anyone is above making the mistakes of the past.
And people here laughed when Khrushchev said back in the 1960's, "We will bury you." I was a kitten then and I remember. Everyone thought he was talking about the Soviet Union/Russia, but what if he were talking about Communism/Marxism in general?
Love your work. My friends here in DC, not so much. Stay safe.
I believe that if any of the so-called insurrectionists were found to have had a gun on them on January 6, we would be seeing the closure of armaments factories in the U.S.
BTW no one has been charged with insurrection in regard to the January 6 protest.
I am usually on board with what the author writes, but this is lacking context obviously. When I search 'Motovilikha strike' year 1918 shows up. Russian Civil War lasted from 1917 to 1922 (more or less). This is obviously war time and during war time war laws apply. It's literally Civil War as written in the tweet. It was a war where anti bolshevik forces committed atrocities no less than bolsheviks themselves and those forces have been supported by foreign powers who little remorse towards local population.
1984 is a technical instruction, mao's red bookis a guide and stallin their paradigm giver....
Can anybody tell me where the above quote came from? I like to read the original sources before I place too much trust in such things. I've learned this from hard experience as there is so much fake stuff out there.....
It's our Living History Theme Park. What a franchise! There's one within a three-hour drive of everyone...
I weekly ask a friend "how did we get here?" But at least I understand now (for those who read ancient history) how all those ordinary Germans felt. It's like cartoon steamrollers flattening you before you see them coming. I live in a highly-"educated" blue area of a red/swing state, and all the good folks in the letters section of our regional newspaper are ready to line us up against the wall and shoot us fer real. Only I and one other wrote to resist the tide...
A kind of Counterinsurgency
Agree, that would be awful. Thank Brandon we have a kind and just leader.
Of course, the Soviets (and Maoists) were also big on politicizing science. Mr. Lysenko, and all that work developing nuclear and other weapons rather than trying to improve the well-being of the proletariat.
Yes, I have a pretty good feeling that this is Jack's newest diversion. wrecking and crashing substack blogs he does not like
Unrelated question to readers as some of you have spreadsheets or databases of links: do you have any articles linking the shot to high blood pressure?
