    Stalinism places its emphasis on a sound body but dumb mind; Marxism/Leninism places emphasis on a sound mind first (and foremost); exercise secondary.

    • Fred Johnson says:

      No, you have to be stupid to accept either. Marxist, stalinist, leninist, hitlerist, doesn’t matter, you have to be brainwashed or stupid. Because you are a slave. Only under parochialism are you free. Free to win, free to lose, free to not even participate.

  2. I am I says:

    Change the logos and Russian texts into German, and you’d find no difference vs. Hitler’s Main Kampf ideas of a pure Aryan race breeding.

    • Tom says:

      That’s very true, and it’s because Hitler was obsessed with Russia. Look at how Nazi Germany was. Most of it was modeled after what Russia did.

    I wonder how many of those poor people made it through the purges and World War II.
