@Oldcat: emigration was VERY strongly discouraged. Otherwise half the country would have left.

comment Did Stalin believe Israel would go communist?
@Oldcat: nope. Emigration means loss of human material. Communists never encouraged that, they just sent the undesirables to labor camps.

comment Would you explain 'development from bourgeois oppression'?
What exactly would you like to hear? Why Marx and his followers believed this crap 100 years ago? Or how his modern idiotic followers reinterpret every word you set in bold to make it believable today?

comment Is this Brzezinski quote real?
@T.E.D.: This specific incarnation of the phrase comes out of the Russian loonies, not the American ones, and harks back to the Hitler's use of the expression.

comment Prisons and prison laws in Old Testament times?
@Clockwork-Muse: Exodus 21:7 "she is not to go free in the manner of male servants" - she DOES go free, but in a different manner (i.e., at puberty).

comment Prisons and prison laws in Old Testament times?
@Clockwork-Muse: Jewish females were also released. The intent of her "slavery" was that she would become a wife of the master or his son, but if it did not happen, she was to be released after 6 years or at puberty, whichever comes first.

comment Why was Tsesarevich Alexei's hemophilia a state secret?
