An interesting video that argues that far from being opposed to Nationalism and Patriotism, in most anti-imperialist struggles it's the Communists who lead the Patriotic defense of the nation. And that makes perfect sense. The Patriotic struggles in Russia, China, Korea, Vietnam and many African and Latin American countries were led by the Communists. Indeed, the same can be said of Poland and countries like it. Under Communism, Poland had national pride, a strong army, and a strong economy. Today, Poland is the bitch of the USA and Germany. Of course, Germany is the bitch of the US Régime, but Poland is even further down the food chain, with many of Poland's young women in the brothels of Western Europe and the USA, and Polish men doing menial jobs where ever they can find them.

Wasn't Trotsky racist in a way that Stalin was only racialist? Trotsky apparently often criticised Stalin based on his Caucasian race & not based on any substantial reason. Stalin was the one who believed, for instance, in the cause of Asian Socialism.

Yes, in general, I'd say that Trots are racists. They believe that all other races should become the same as the white race.

Sweden is a Capitalist state. Capitalism needs an unlimited supply of cheap labour, and so imports migrants.

Sweden is also, though this is rarely pointed out, a massive producer and vendor in the infernal world arms trade.

They're no socialists, unless you count M Higgins and Bertie Ahern as socialists.

socialists are destroyers of nations. So you decide whether to count these two or not ?

Would you care to give us some evidence to back up that extraordinary claim?
Socialism is, ultimately, international, though, is it not? I wouldn't say it is a destroyer of nations, since it initially raises them up, if the initial phase of Stalinist "Socialism in One Country" is taken.
