Reflections on modern imperialism based on the work of Vladimir Lenin


At the end of December 2019, Valentin Katasonov, Doctor of Economics, presented his new book, Imperialism: Metamorphoses of the Century.


This is a peculiar look at the work of Vladimir Lenin, "Imperialism as the highest stage of capitalism." This work is the second, expanded edition of the 2016 study. According to the scientist, the work of V.I. Lenin indicated in the title of his book is of particular interest in terms of explaining many economic and political phenomena and processes in the world capitalist system of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

What are the main economic signs of imperialism that were first formulated in Lenin's work, which every student knew in Soviet times? What serious "stretch" can be found in Lenin's work? What did the founder of the school of utopian socialism Saint-Simon and the leader of the world proletariat have in common? What is the level of concentration of production and capital in the global economy today? Which companies are the core of the global economy today?

You will find the answers to these questions in the video below. The author discusses the trends inherent in the capitalist system with an eye to history and modernity.

    In the Soviet years, students did not know any basic principles of imperialism that Lenin formulated, absolutely. And when they say that they knew how this is said in this article, they are telling a lie. Farsovka, barracks, drunkenness, The Beatles, street gangsterism, BAM - who cares about Leninist works? No need to dream.

        Yes, he is lying, because he had to pass exams even at technical universities, and therefore, from the MLF to Scientific Communism, he had to study at least something so that he wouldn’t look like a fool. And I just got to the time when, in addition to defending my diploma, in the fifth year I also introduced the exam on "Scientific Communism", which of course did not please me much, but it did not depress me - that's for sure.

      If you watch Youtube channels instead of the TV, then I advise you to watch a series of videos about Pavel Badyrov’s capitalism. A man born in 1964, a little older than me, speaks as he actually did. Here is one of the videos.

          If you are truly 1982, then this is a lie. Because the history of the CPSU has not been taught since 1988, or something like that.

            And, Soviet people "scored" at the CPSU, including .......every student, much earlier than 1988, as well as on the foundations of imperialism.
            In 1988, pornographic films were openly played, in the so-called video salons, there was no end to those who wished.

              We have the “History of the CPSU” and “Marxist-Leninist philosophy” taught by the kindest man, Ph.D. Colonel Titarenko, who participated in the Kerch-Eltigent assault and fought for several months as a sergeant in a tiny bridgehead north of Kerch. I don’t remember what he told us about the history of the CPSU, but sometimes he remembered this landing, and according to him, he hadn’t experienced such horror anywhere in the whole war. But he went through it all, and his stories did more for our upbringing than his lectures about some issues that some party congress discussed before or after the war - that’s what the TEACHER with a capital letter means, who was believed at least for that that such people don’t lie like Solzhenitsyn or the like.

                hi A lot, from childhood, I read and heard about the Kerch-Feodosia operations of 1942 and 1943, Adzhimushka ...
                He visited Eltigen (present Heroivka) more than once, in the “metal scrap” 90s and the beginning of the “zero” ones, he crawled out and exited our and Hitler’s positions, preserved trenches and pillboxes (in the 2000s a lot of things went wrong there, destroyed and were stolen, the remnants of the rusting shipwrecks off the coast are completely gone!).
                Then, for days on end, young cheerful Germans delved into them, living in tents — the West Kholuy “independent” authorities didn’t fix any obstacles for them and they felt sovereign! Traced on our land in a businesslike way, there were traces of their excavations and fresh deep "holes" deep in the trenches and trenches, undermined walls of the trenches with the remains of aluminum flasks, equipment, shells, and fragments of human bones protruding from there ...
                .
                When I looked up the slope from the edge of the water, from the landing site of our assault force, and down from the former German positions, it became scary for our soldiers to hide in the “folds of the terrain” for paratroopers; it was almost impossible there — everything was visible and shot through by frontal and flank fire (And the rare folds of the terrain did not save from the mortar fire-shanks of those German mines and lay in the 90s, dozens of years after the fighting, under the Eltigen fences, thrown out when digging gardens ...), on land and on the sea!
                From the ruins of the artillery bunker (on the slope, to the right of the famous monument “Sails”, also built on the site of the artillery bunker, the blasted concrete remains of which lie lower down the slope), the entire Kerch Strait and the shore of the landing ship’s Taman boat were also visible. ..not to mention floating anti-boat mines and Hitler high-speed artillery barges, constantly strolling through the strait and shooting our boats and low-flying planes.
                The paratroopers could break through and survive there only by chance, the Hitler positions were very strong, skillfully organized and thoroughly equipped - the first line of German trenches was located at the very edge of the coast!
                It’s a pity that our front line survivors veteran veterans about the majority of what was experienced in the war, its non-parade side, did not talk at official meetings with students and could not openly write about it in their memoirs!

                  In the sixties, there were about a dozen thrown out buildings sticking out of the water, and in the water we were looking for the termite cores of shells for pampering.

                  Yes, it was from them that they inflicted huge losses on our paratroopers during the entire operation.

                  Then apparently they wanted to quickly forget the horrors of the war and some uncomfortable questions about the losses, so they did not encourage the publication of books from ordinary participants. And different people interpreted these memories in different ways - they were afraid that they would begin to distort the official history of the war. In the nineties, the late D. Egorov wrote a book on the basis of letters and conversations with front-line soldiers, in which he used a lot of materials on the Western Front of the first days of the war. In general, the book is interesting and useful, but the author made mistakes in the interpretation of some episodes of memoirs, and this did not benefit the readers. So not everything could be published - that's why they were careful in Soviet times.

                    On the completely covered with blood and human suffering the shore of Eltigen I never slept peacefully, I really feel such places!
                    There, in the 90s and 2000s, after a bit of a storm, marine engineers, mine clearance groups, the sea regularly threw up dangerous work (I think that now, too, on the shore, in sandy rifts along the shore and in the strait, there are many more mines and other GPs hidden forward generation).

                    The grandfather, who fought in the summer of 1941 and died in Stalingrad, died after the liberation of his native Ukraine, and the surviving dad with his uncle, father-in-law younger brother (from a marine, a landing party participant, by the end of the war, after being wounded, who became the tank driver), they didn’t really like to remember the war — their memories didn’t fit well into the then officialdom.
                    If even Victor Nekrasov, for his very smoothed "In the Trenches of Stalingrad", was persecuted, then my relatives and friends of the front-line soldiers leading edge, even if they wrote their memoirs during the time of Khrushchev and Brezhnev, then only "to the table"! request
                    What is most interesting, but it was precisely in the first post-war years, under the "totalitarian Stalinist regime", and not during the "Khrushchev thaw", that many truthful memoirs of front-line soldiers and warriors of the "invisible front", partisan underground workers were published! winked

                    After examining the initial exposition, freshly opened by the “great commander” Brezhnev of the Kiev Museum of the Great Patriotic War, I drew the attention of museum workers in my review that their exposition was more “about the feat of generals and colonels, not ordinary soldiers” - there wasn’t any inside, and I don’t know if they then took into account my remark ?!
                    And now in our former Ukraine (ex-Ukrainian SSR), in the post-Maidan amecolony "Ukraine", even the name "Great Patriotic War" is punishable by criminal records, about whom the exposition in the former Museum of the Great Patriotic War is now "reinterpreted", I’m even afraid to imagine. ..

                      There is another interesting book that describes the tragedy of the Crimean Front in 1942 and the evacuation from Kerch - L. Ivanov, "The Truth About SMERSH." Read, you will not regret it.
                      I had a lot to come out of the roads of the Great Patriotic War. I fired the first shots at the enemy at three in the morning on June 22, 1941, when the Soviet people did not know that the war had already begun ... I had the opportunity to attend the signing of the surrender in Karlshorst, among the first to know that the greatest war in history has ended with our victory .
                      But neither in defending Odessa, nor in the bleeding Stalingrad, nor near Berlin, which was so dear to us, it was so desperately hard, so hopeless, so insulting as in 1942 under Kerch blocked by the Germans ...

      Well, to whom as in Soviet times, and now. But to say the words “speak no truth” is simply not ethical, for it is simply an insult to many people of that time. Although I was not a student, I was a cadet at VVMIU where we taught, and specifically, "Imperialism as the highest stage of capitalism" in the 60s. I taught the same thing in the 70s at the Kaliningrad Technical Institute. The fact that we did not apply this in life in the 90s is another question.

            I hope that future generations will be smarter than us, and will find a way to return without revolution what their ancestors created for our entire country. At least I want to believe it. Otherwise, our people will simply scoff, and become the same devourer of values ​​as the whole rotten West, where the main commandment is "man-to-man beast."

      I personally knew, even studied. In any educational institution there was a course of Marxism-Leninism. And many knew about the three components. And even among the smugglers and drunks there were experts with a capital letter. And in the army it was difficult to build a career without knowing the foundations of historical materialism. The dvoechnik of that time was a cut above today's excellent students (they just didn’t know what windows, android, etc.), but nobody knew that then .... Do not judge by yourself and generalize.

        To build a career in the army, you had to first have a membership card. And, when you talk about some obligatory knowledge of source material, it is very naive to listen.
        As one acquaintance of the political commander used to say, those who are interested in reading the PSS of V.I. Lenin should look suspiciously, and at the same time they twist a finger at their temple.
        What to take from him - it is well known that the Soviet Air Force said so ....... a squadron without a political officer, that the village is without a fool.

          I do not know who told you what, but the officers entering the academy intensively studied the classics of Marxism-Leninism. Few read the entire collection of V.I. Lenin; there was a mandatory list of articles. Everyone can twist at the temple, but see a detailed guide to the state. a coup or revolution (anyone likes it), not everyone is capable. The question of three sources and three components was mandatory when joining the CPSU. Not everyone liked it, but it was. And then there was a collection of works by I.V. Stalin, it was not required to be studied, but a pity. It is in these works that guidance is given for building a strong state, a healthy society, and an optimal personnel policy.

            Only those who had a membership card had the right to enter the Academy, and the holders of such a ticket automatically became experts in the classics of Marxism-Leninism. It could not be otherwise.
            Therefore, to study and was not necessary.

              You are distorting. There is a list of mandatory questions when joining the CPSU, there is a program with a description of the disciplines for admission to the academy. About the moral character and everyday conversations on this topic, I did not say a word.

                Of course, there were questions and disciplines. With one caveat, it was an empty formality.
                Here is how the grades were distributed when passing the Marxist-Leninist training:
                Member of the CPSU - the mark is excellent, even if you say that the earth is flat.
                Member of the Komsomol - the assessment is good (you have to put someone not good)
                This is all, in the end, and ruined.

                  at one time in a military school, at 4-5 courses, the competition was between members of the CPSU and the Komsomol, strangely enough, the Komsomol members had a higher score and physical training was better.

        Masterpiece maxim. The basis was known, if not all, then by many: "Being determines consciousness."

    In Russia, state-monopoly capitalism is a form of imperialism, which is characterized by the combination of the power of capitalist monopolies with the power of the state in order to preserve and strengthen the capitalist system, enrich monopolies, and suppress popular indignation.
    "... State-monopoly capitalism is the complete material preparation of socialism, there is a vestibule of it, there is that step of the historical ladder, between which (the step) and the step called socialism, there are no intermediate steps," Lenin V. I.

    I remember at school at the Social Studies lessons all these Leninist postulates were studied .. and Marx’s Manifests, and a lot by heart .... and this despite the fact that I was not a Komsomol member ... The teacher was an ardent Communist, Stalin-type .. !!!! You yourself understand what was the inheritance of the students -. all these dogmas bounced off the students’s teeth ... Those school notes on social studies from Svetlana Ivanovna (she advised when leaving school), used at the institute - and was successful with the teachers there .... The technical university, and you understand, that nothing will revolve in industry without studying the works of Lenin, Marx, Engels (then Stalin did not quote, he won all of them now ..) .... Yes, yes, they studied these works at the school and institute .. .and party and not .. - for what?
    I also remember the complete works of Lenin and Stalin .... a communist neighbor bequeathed to her parents, and they poor people didn’t know where to put this pile of papers - they were afraid to throw out, and they stood on the shelves in order of book numbers ...... flipped through the student body - in order to pass the exam .... damn it, this knowledge ... have never come in handy in my life! only an institute with honors ..... a paradox !, but there was such a time ... And the communist neighbor Olga Nikolaevna that she handed over the books at the end of her life - she kept correspondence with Stalin ... her parents took care of her, one remained in old age , the son died in Germany in April 1945 ....., so my parents took care of the elderly neighbor and buried her with dignity ... after her death, the parents saved those letters ... and letters from the son ...
    then the neighbors changed, and we started a series of numerous transfers - the letters were kept for a long time ...

        Little. But there is a bulk cheaper. Well, to the extreme - just go to the store. The choice is for every taste.

          The cost of going to a restaurant with alcohol then could fluctuate on average from three rubles to a dime per person, it all depended on what to order. In the cafe, you could eat from a ruble to two, so when you earned 100-140 rubles, you could go to the cafe for lunch. The worst thing at the time was that it was difficult to get to restaurants in the evening - there weren’t enough places for everyone, and I remember that well.

    I can’t watch tyagomotin. I can read (somehow it is much faster), I don’t have enough patience to watch.
    Therefore, not criticizing (did not look the same), but immediately his opinion.
    In 1991, the "petty bourgeois" came to power in the USSR. Like any "petty bourgeois" he was a petty nationalist and dragged the USSR to his nat. education. Moreover, Russia, as the main "petty bourgeois", intensely pushing these entities aside, may still remember: "Take as much sovereignty as you take away" and customs at the borders of the regions and ... ASSR. And by the beginning of the 2000s, imperialist capital had formed in Russia and the country began to gather, politically, too: they were able to end the Chechen wars, and began to increase external expansion. And the process goes further.
    Yes, by the way, who lives in the illusions of the super importance of vigorous small business (like in Italy they produce more than 60% of GDP, but really, they are allowed to produce so much), look at the statistics of the one who determined the main economic growth in recent years in the world and, I hope illusions dissipate.
    And Lenin's work on imperialism still perfectly describes the current trends in Russia.
    And one more way, under Lenin, the number of factory workers, namely that part of the proletariat on which the Bolsheviks (and not every proletariat, including the lumpen) relied, did not exceed (even was lower) the current number (in 1913, about 4 million, which amounted to 20 % of the total proletariat, which included sex in taverns).
