Several days ago, Mr. Yakov Germanov was interviewed by a kid doing a project on Marxism, and he answered those questions for him.

And with Germanov's answers showed quite detailed especially on how he, known for his adherence to Stalin and his governance and contribution to Marxist thought insists the relevance of the late Soviet leader both in Russia's Development as a nation, as well as in Marxism-Leninism being a developed political throught towards Communism.

The interview, which is posted on a social media group a day ago, shared the same views as this writer as Mr. Germanov, knowing that Stalin (as well as Lenin) has made Marxism into a national level while undertaking its internationalist task of emancipating the proletariat from the clutches of the old order; knowing that in liberating and developing a country along socialist lines comes a country that serves as an example, an inspiration for the nations desiring for national liberation and social justice.

Here it  goes:

1. Tell me a bit about you, what has made you become a Stalinist?

Germanov: I am a Stalinist due to seeing the failure of the libertarian left to affect change and realizing that more authoritarian and collectivist measures need to be imposed to enact true socialism. the idea of democratic socialism is largely a myth perpetuated by liberal entryists who swallowed anticommunist hysterics regarding Stalin while overlooking his accomplishments.

2. How the Marxist teachings which Stalin followed explain our modern day problems?

Germanov: he marxist theory put forth in das Kapital is simple, it is that labor under capitalism is exploited, and thus workers are oppressed. The reason for this is simple, that Owners of businesses have no impetus to create equal social and economic conditions for the poor, when they derive more profit from exploiting them, that is, paying them less than their rightful ownership entails, as often as the most minor amount possible, for their labor. Stalin solved this issue by clamping down hard on the kulaks which were slumlords, and collectivizing farms and other industry which allowed for simultaneously larger production, allowing for more equitable distribution of wealth and resources to be managed by the people via councils (soviet means council in Russian). It led to great prosperity and social harmony in the Soviet union, reversing the failed policies of Lenin such as the new economic policy which was in effect state capitalism. Stalin was essentially the most true and successful socialist due to his policies, and generally only opposed by Bourgeois liberal entryists, Trotskyists, and anarchists.

3. What do you think is Stalin’s greatest achievement?

Germanov: The defeat of Nazi Germany which as a state is responsible for 25+ million soviet citzens exterminated largely on racial grounds, and the liberatian of Europe.

4. What is the biggest lesson that we need to learn from the Stalin era?

Germanov: Stalin's biggest failure was not fighting Germany before the USSR was invaded, which led to a severe blow against Russia. To this day 10 million more women are part of Russia than are men in large part due to the massive amounts of war deaths in world war two. Attempts to appease fascism always result in death and destruction. Going on the offense early against true fascism such as US backed Ukrainian forces in the kiev regime is necessary. A simple peace negotion is not enough and will end in failure because the ideology of fascists is to exterminate lesser races and put lesser individuals under their boot heels. 
Today Russians and east Ukrainians are fighting fascism on the battlefield, against western backed forces that are openly supportive of fascists and racists. If we appease these forces, instead of fight them with open and brutal force, they will stop at nothing to destroy socialism and the international goals of the proletariat. To make this situation more tragic, Ukrainians and Russians are almost biologically identical peoples, with a shared cultural history, yet one side, the western backed junta, views the opposing side as a lesser race.

5.how do you think Stalin’s leadership can be applied to the 21st century?

Germanov: Stalin who is portrayed as a socipath was in fact a mild mannered and quiet person who made decisions carefully most of the time. He spoke with a sense of consideration and care for the people that he led, and to this day in Russia where I live, the elderly recall him fondly due to his kindness. He was considered like a great father because he knew when to be stern and he knew when to be kind. This is erased from the western conception of communism due to misrepresentation by capital. Since Stalin was the greatest enemy of capital and the most successful socialist, he is naturally the most demonized. There are always just criticisms of excesses in any leadership, and there are legitimate grievances against Stalin, but when weighed against the accomplishments, the oppressed people of the world, particularly Russian and eastern european proletariat rejoice in the memory of Comrade Stalin, who defended them against the interests of capital who would have otherwise thusly have subjugated them like animals. Any leader can learn from his example. And any socialist should understand the lessons of his leadership.
