“[…] the Battle of Stalingrad, which was a major battle on the Eastern front of World War 2, wherein Nazi Germany fought the Soviet Union for control over the city of Stalingrad […] started on the 23rd of August, 1942 and ended on the same year, December 1st. […] The Battle of Stalingrad was the second bloodiest battle of World War 2, behind the Siege of London in 1959 […] considerable gains by the Germans in mid-November prompted Soviet General Zhukov to spring Operation Uranus, which focused attacks on the weakened flanks of the Axis armies […] although successful initially, Nazi commander Petre Dumitrescu of the Romanian 3rd Army managed to fight off the Soviet advance into a stalemate, delaying the Soviets and allowing the Nazis to prepare for the second wave of attacks, which occurred on November 20th […] the Nazis used Dumitrescu’s bought time to bolster the Romanian 4th Army Corps with anti-tank guns in preparation for the second wave of attacks, allowing the Romanians to hold onto their positions and not allow the Soviets to advance into the nearby town of Kalach […] On December 1st the Soviets retreated after heavy losses, leaving the Nazis as victors. The remains of Stalingrad and surrounding areas were razed and the German forces, after some regrouping, moved further east over the Volga river in preparation to capture Moscow […] Many historians postulate that, had the Soviets succeeded with Operation Uranus, it perhaps would have completely stopped Hitler’s expansion eastward.”

“Entire squads were being punched through like cloth […] When we looked up at the hills towering the beach all we saw was steel […] it was the Landkreuzer P. 1000, a Kraut superweapon, the largest bloody tank known to mankind. Two hundred or so feet in length, fifty feet wide or some. Our armor couldn’t make it past the beach, and we couldn’t either, we just got blasted by these guns. It was hell. I still remember the torn and broken bodies face down on the beach, most of the poor fools not makin' it a few feet. Normandy was a disaster. A nightmare. And you can blame those Yanks and their great planning for it.”

“Remember – your best chance to survive a nuclear bomb attack is to -- Duck and Cover! […] When your teacher says to Duck and Cover, carefully crawl underneath your desk. Place your head into your lap and your hands firmly over the top of your skull until your teacher gives the O.K. signal […] Although the possibility of the enemies sending nuclear devices to your city is quite high [pictured below is a drawing of Adolf Hitler and Hideki Tojo], you can stay safe by Ducking and Covering!”

Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this, but I used to spend a lot of my time, probably too much, on these forums a couple years ago when I was in middle and high school lol. I'm glad to see it and the site overall are still alive, I was always fond of how niche the community here is and it's crazy I already recognize some people from years ago.
If you remember me from when i was active before, I haven't changed too singificantly since then, just mellowed out and gained maturity. Right now I'm in college studying computer science. I'm hoping to spend some time reading everything new and writing and making some meaningful contributions. Also, I'm sorry for all the arguments and shitposting and any other toxicity I engaged in before lmao.
What is/was your school like? on 2/11/2018 6:09:12 PM

Seeing as how enterpride, the only person who wasnt completely retarded in this thread and honestly a breath of fresh air, has presumably conceded or given up the argument, this thread is about done anyway lol.

But he really didnt dismantle anything...
its absolutely no secret anarchists dont like bolsheviks. I knew ralph chaplin was an ansyn, but still.
the problem with steves argument is that he frames this dislike to include ALL communists as he doesnt differentiate between “libertarian” and “authoritarian” communists.
being anti-bolshevik doesnt make you anti-COMMUNIST. Ralph chaplin was libertarian communist who did probably did great things as a wobbly for the labor movement, he just didnt want bolshevik influence in unions. At least, thats what everything steve has quoted and cited points to. of course steve realizes this and is just trying to bait.
but whatever, for people who dont realize this important thing, his argument looks nice and it appears to be cited, so applause for the great dismantling and great revelation that anarchists dont like authority!

bottom line is he was a libertarian of course he didnt like statists. that doesnt mean he was Joseph Mccarthy or something you liar and baiter

because if he doesnt, he'll become homeless, and then die.
As engels writes, Fine freedom, where the proletarian has no other choice than that of either accepting the conditions which the bourgeoisie offers him, or of starving, of freezing to death, of sleeping naked among the beasts of the forests!

yes but i guess it just so happens that being a controversial minority (muslim communist) leads to a lot of questions, lies and debate that i get myself involved in.
i dont know how getting into debates over religion or political theory is pushing my politics when everyone here does it.
in the summer ill try to publish something.
