This is the very same Stalinism

Grigory Yavlinsky’s web-site, 19.04.2019 

 

According to public opinion polls, the attitude of over 50 per cent of Russians to Joseph Stalin is somewhat positive. This is not surprising.  Stalin’s methods of governing based on fear and lies were maintained under Leonid Brezhnev and country leaders after him. Mikhail Gorbachev abolished this practice. But then, not yet overcome, Bolshevism with its “goal justifies the means” and indifference to the life, dignity and destiny of man, formed the basis of the reforms of the 1990s, which gave rise to the mafia state. And in the 2000s, capitalism with a Stalinist face emerged on the basis of this “market Bolshevism”: lawlessness, authoritarian rule, contingent property law, dullness in power, and corruption, which was deliberately laid in the foundation of all relations in the country, so that to serve as a universal charge for arrest for anyone at any time (just like “anti-Soviet activities of the enemies of the people and spying for world imperialism” in [Joseph Stalin’s] 1930s).
