Do you know of any ressources that give factual, evidence-based information about the development of the soviet union from its beginnings till the death of Stalin.
I'm particularly interested in its industrial and educational policies.
Original textbooks from that time would be golden!
Looking at wikipedia I can only find the usual "it was all just communist propaganda and lies" and "everything was horrible, nothing worked" litany.
Are there reliable, uncensored translations of Lenin's, Stalin's and other important policy makers'...

There are lots of stuff by Lenin and Stalin on the web, and you would know that if you bothered to even google it.
As for other stuff, some of it is freely available, others are locked away. I have a friend who occasionally does Archive work at Moscow State University, and peer-reviews historical writings on this exact time-period, so I may ask him for some stuff for you when he gets back.
Why do so many people fall for the north africans were black maymay?
Even goes up to hollywood. Why not instead glorify actual African kingdoms like Mali and Axum. You could even go as far to say Yemen is black considering it has considerable mullato history.
Because Western normies don't actually want to learn about shit like the Epic of Sunjata because few have heard of it, yet alone know what it's about. They barely care about the Ancient Greeks, let don't know anything about Mali or Axum.
It's must easier just to make something that says "Caesar was black" than to actually try to do a foreign culture justice like that, and even if they do manage, the chance that it bombs goes up exponentially simply because of it's limited appeal.
I got an idea. I want to collect those snails the next time I'm on holiday and make myself a real tyrian purple T-shirt. Are here any guides how to do it? How many snails would I need to get for one T-shirt?
Kind of wasting it if you use it on a t-shirt
use it on a dress shirt or something instead.
"twelve thousand snails of Murex brandaris yield no more than 1.4 g of pure dye, enough to colour only the trim of a single garment.
>I die innocent of all the crimes laid to my charge. I pardon those who have occasioned my death; and I pray to God that the blood you are going to shed may never be visited on France.
What are the effects of Louis XVI's execution on France? Did it result in more bloodshed?

Out of Rivera, Codreanu, Mosley, and Degrelle were any of them credible leaders with decent policies, or were they all just carbon copies or Hitler or Mussolini that wouldn't translate to their own nations.
Codranu was based. In terms of style that is, don't really care about politics.
Rivera too was very stylish. He should've been an actor. He has the Al Pachino vibe without the weak chin and being a manlet.

True fact: American Communists played a notable role in the struggle against slavery.
From Philip S. Foner biographical introduction to Friedrich A. Sorge's "Labor Movement in the United States":
>The Communist Club of New York was not only the first Marxist organization in the Western Hemisphere; it was the only socialist (and labor) organization that invited blacks to join as equal members. Its constitution required all members to "recognize the complete equality of all persons—no matter of whatever color or sex." The club was also in the forefront of the struggle against slavery, and its members played an important role in mobilizing the German-American workers in opposition to the "peculiar institution." ....
>By 1860, these workers had become committed to a radical antislavery position. Moreover, men like Weydemeyer, Douai, and members of the Communist Club, including Sorge, formed a significant force in the Republican Party, seeking to push the party in a more radical direction, particularly in the direction of favoring the total abolition of slavery.
>When the Civil War began with the attack on Fort Sumter, most of the German radical organizations disbanded because the majority of their members enlisted in the Union forces. The New York Communist Club did not meet for the duration of the war since most of its members had joined the Union army.
Can anyone name any famous Medieval European people who were heavily critical of religion or even Atheist? Preferably ones that existed before the Age of Enlightenment.
I can think of a few Islamic ones like Al-Ma'arrim, Ibn al-Rawandi and even Al-Razi I suppose. But funnily enough I can't think of any Europeans that lived in a similar period who were equally or more critical of Christianity like they were.
Am I just ignorant or were there really not that many of them?
