How important was it for the soviets during ww2

 No.11778

I already made a massive effort post about this so there is no thread to really be had.
Please read https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=921020

TL;DR: Lend Lease was barely 4-10% of the Soviet war-effort, and the majority of it was delivered after the Battle of Stalingrad. The first deliveries didn't reach the USSR before the Battle of Moscow halted the German assault and pushed them back.

On top of that the majority of Lend Lease tanks and planes were inferior to both Soviet and German tech used, only the Studebaker truck and Aircobra were worth a damn.

On top of that was the fact that the main reason the Nazis had the power to even begin the war was because American, British and Continental European corporations actively supported Hitler up until 1941, with Rockafeller's Standard Oil helping refuel German Submarines up until mid 1942.

>inb4 Muh 1939-1940 Soviet-German trade pact

Soviet exports to Germany were 5th place in terms of amount and were only even that high because they got embargoed from their usual sources. The amount of Wheat the Germans got in trade from the USSR wasn't worth even a month of bread for the army and was less than 1% of Soviet food stocks. The USSR received thousands of pieces of machinery, equipment and military vehicles including a semicomplete ship of the line, the Lutzow, which took part in the war against the Germans.

The Nazis were also politically supported by the West throughout much of the war and prior to it, with Poland being a major part of this.

Capitalism is all the free people's of middle earth in gradual decline with elves leaving, the Men of Gondor without a King for century's and in decline not to mention men like the Haradrim and Easterlings wanting to side with us.

We are Sauron the necromancer hiding out in Mirkwood we are rapidly building our power in the background and following the ideal theory to get more power.

We will continue gaining power and achieve world domination or in this case world communism unless the capitalists can achieve a miracle akin to throwing the ring in mount doom.

<I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.”

Mordor is communist. They have industry and all the orca live in the same material conditions. Even their generals and captains sleep and eat with the enlisted orcs. Sauron and Saruman are your Maos and Kims and Stalins.

Everyone else lives in a social democrat petit bourgeois utopia. People have small businesses, own lands that others toil. Sam is Frodo's gardner, is visibly poorer, but they're best friends.

Gondor is a reactionary hellhole, no tax policy and just letting people fend for themselves. If anyone gets too uppity they crush them.

Rohan is feudal. You have the royals, the soldiers and everyone else is a peasant who lives in literal horse shit.

Dwarves are greedy fucks nobody likes, that just dig shiny things everyone wants but still looks down on Dwarves.

Woodland Elves are egotistical hippies that enjoy fucking with everyone who is different from them.

High Elves are cultists.

And they all tolerate each other. But here comes someone who sees through the fucking charade, decides to fuck over everyone who decided to make for themselves "rings of power", even though they had power over the land in every meaningful way but nah, needed a physical representation on their finger.

the one image you have about waiting in line invalidates your entire argument. in one picture, people are waiting for bread because there are food shortages due to system of central planning. on the other people are waiting outside for the release of the latest iphone so they can be the first people to have such a luxury good that nobody in a communist nation such as the ussr had. those are 2 entirely different situations. false equivalence fallacy. one is necessity, the other is choice.

>Yes so behind that until the Manned moon landings the USSR's Space achievements were ahead of the USAs

i did say for the most part. both sides space program was based on german science and scientists captured in ww2. us still beat ussr to the moon, stealth aircraft, higher standard of living (no bread shortage) etc.

>The USA and UK took 100 years of industrialization

thats not true. but you need to understand that the UK INVENTED the industrial revolution. other nations that industrialized later just aquired the existing technology. make sure you thank UK, they invented it all.

also JSYK you should also understand that the industrial revolution in capitalist countries, despite the living and working conditions (nobody ever had done this yet) resulted in the greatest increase in wealth in human history.

>the Soviet Union had a Human Development Index of 0.920

according to who? the ussr? higher HDI than america despite people standing in breadlines, not having cars or vcr players? in 1990 americans were using the internet and computers. apple and microsoft were a thing.

Good beginner tutorial for making a scarf. She talks a lot in some parts but everything is explained clearly.

That said, I started and stopped about 3-4 times. It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even. I wasn't even paying attention to that in the beginning and it came out looking uneven.

This shit is not as easy as it looks.

>It's not easy pulling the same amount of yarn every single loop to make it even.

Yeah, that can be difficult at first. I made a similar scarf when I first started learning (though I used a much thinner yarn and needle size) and the loops were very uneven, especially in the beginning (there's also a big hole because I dropped the needles while I was knitting and I didn't know how to put the loops back on). By the end I got used to it and it looked a little better.

So don't worry if it doesn't look as nice as the one in the video, it's you first scarf after all. When you want to make a nicer looking project you can correct your mistakes as you go, but now you just need to get the hang of knitting. You can reuse the yarn later, so you could remake it once you get comfortable, don't worry about wasting yarn.

>This shit is not as easy as it looks.

At first yeah, but it gets much easier. As you do it more often you're gonna be able to knit while watching a movie or something, you won't even really need to look at it.

One more thing though, I don't think the style of knitting she's using is very good. There are two main types of knitting you'll see: English knitting (the one she's using) and continental or speed knitting. English knitting (I hope I'm not using the wrong name) is when you put the needle through a loop, wrap the yarn with your right hand and then pull it through the loop like you see in the video. Continental is a bit more complicated, but I think it's much more useful. I learned how to do it from these videos (and from grandma)

After you learn how to knit and purl you should spend some time to learn about the different types of fabrics you can make by combining knitting and purling. This video shows how to make the most basic stitches.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD5Cgu-CCF0

It's important that you learn them because you'll use a combination of two or more in most projects. But don't worry they're not difficult (except for the seed stitch maybe). Other than that, have fun! (and be patient)
