Let's discuss in this thread the causes and consequences of the Sino-Soviet split starting with this question: Why does this board usually gives the full blame of the split to Mao when it were Krushchev's actions that started the fallout with communist parties all over the world, and not just with the chinese one?

And it was all opportunism, because the Stalinist faction were his rivals in the party so he needed to isolate them. And in the process he destroyed the revolutionary character of the CPSU and kickstarted the age of careerism that led to liquidationists like Gorbachev, Yeltsin and Yakovlev. Fucking cornman

This. Khruschev was certainly guilty of slandering Stalin which harmed the communist cause, some of his policies like peaceful coexistence were clearly mistaken, and the USSR had since the end of the war been guilty of great power chauvinism towards smaller socialist countries. However Mao and Hoxha were clearly exaggerating when they claimed claimed socialism had been overthrown in the USSR, that Khruschev was an "agent of the bourgeoisie," that the USSR was a "regime of the Hitler type," etc. Anybody still saying this kind of shit today should be fucking embarrassed tbh.

I mean sure but at the same time he removed the measures used to make sure the central planning would work. For instance While it is true that kruschev still kept the brain or the thinking aspect of the central planning he at the same time removed the disciplinary aspect of central planning. Stalins ruthlessness While horrific ensured that the ministries and etc would follow or at least do their best to follow the central gov plans and it was working. But unfortunately with kruschev demonizing Stalin for being a monster kruschev single handly made the stick aspect of Stalin industrial policy become political taboo. And because of that, it led to the brethren stagnation where without the discipline stick aspect there was nothing to pressure the ministries or gov corporations to follow the state goals.

(Also off topic but I'm starting to realize the problems of economic planning isn't centralization or the planning aspect but rather the implementation. I mean isn't it odd that the only succesful country that had immense planning was either South korea under park chung hee where the state used military forms of discipline to force chaebols and ministers to follow the plans or xist china which also uses a lot of discipline too for the same reasons)

For instance Stalin was willing to purge or remove people without any hesitation be they the state owned company leaders or high government officials. And while you can say it was inhumane at the same time this policy probably prevented the rise of cliques, patronage networks or lazy leaders since you know purges. Then Kruschev then came to power and demonized Stalin for this exact aspect saying that he was a power hungry paranoid maniac that purged innocent people. And while Stalin was imperfect and paranoid at the same time by demonizing this aspect of Stalin it made this willingness to purge others be seen as political taboo since it became the negative aspect of why Stalin bad. And I argue that in part caused the rise of the brezhnev stagnation because by demonizing this aspect of political purges, no one would be willing to follow this policy since its associated with what's considered the extreme bad aspects of stalins rule.

Yes and this is what I consider stalins great mistake. I argue that his willingness to purge others could have been useful and valuable if it was used for economic and smart political reasons. Like instead of using it in the dumb way he did during the great purge he could have just used that to constantly purge economically inefficient people. Like focus on creating a ruthless monitoring state thats focused on maximizing economic efficiency. Not only that if he did do political purges, purge only the political cliques, patronage networks, corrupt people and etc and not people that you think are secretly traitors to russia when there was no rational reason to think so (burkharin)

 No.690840

>>690818
>i want to hear what is their justification for the empowerment of a bureaucratic clique by kruschev
In my view this was an unforseen outcome of Stalin's own policies. The immense pressures of industrialization and the war, the consolidation of the Soviet government, the repression of the terroristic activities of the Trots (assuming they were guilty, which I remain agnostic on), etc. all pushed the party in an increasingly autocratic direction out of necessity. While Stalin and the original cadre of revolutionary leaders still lived and ran things this wasn't nearly as much of an issue, since while they ruled as an autocracy they were still a popular, revolutionary autocracy. However in an age before cybernetics, the emergence of a large, centralized bureaucracy and stratum of technical intelligentsia was inevitable, and such people would obviously be in a strong position to take control of the autocratic apparatus that Stalin built upon his death (due largely to their elevated place in the economic command structure). This is precisely what happened, Stalin may have combatted bureaucratic control of the state and party apparatus, but he did not and could not have eliminated the bureaucracy itself, and as such the disease took control once the suppression of its symptoms ceased. Yes, Khrushev represented a bureaucratic reaction to Stalin, but one which made use of the political structures he created for its own ends.

Fair point, and I would agree that this was an issue and criticize Khruschev for it. At the same time however I think this illustrates the futility of trying to implement such discipline from the top down instead of the bottom up.
>>690835
>"deeper structural forces in Soviet society" played little to no part in the decisions and general activities of the Politburo
Don't be silly of course they did. No political regime can exist independently of its character as determined by social forces and material conditions. All regimes have a class character, and even within this class character some strata of that class may be dominant over others. Men make history, but not as they choose.

I think that a top down policy can work but you have too seek a middle, too little pressure and no one will care , but too much pressure and the ministers or burecrats will be alienated.

The issue isn't that they don't work, the issue is that they don't have lasting efficacy without direct democratic accountability from the working masses. A strong, competent, popular leader like Stalin or Xi can effectively purge all kinds of people, but without strong mechanisms of proletarian democracy all of this can be reversed with a simple change of leadership. I think that the case of Khruschev illustrates this very well.

More or less, but at the same time I think a lot of self-described anti-revisionists massively exaggerate the extent to which Khruschev "betrayed socialism" or even contributed to the USSR's collapse. Sure, he laid the groundwork for the domination of the bureaucracy, which in the long term gave us Gorbachev, Glasnost, and eventually the dissolution of the USSR. However this wasn't a forgone conclusion, I think it could also have gone in a direction more similar to China (economic liberalization without the loss of the party's dominance of Balkanization of the country) or Cuba (increasing democratization of the state within a mainly socialist framework). Certainly I think it's ridiculous to say that Khruschev was a traitor, that he restored capitalism, that he was an ally of the bourgeoisie or a saboteur, etc. He was just a moderately competent statesman who was either unaware of or unwilling to challenge the inertia of the bureaucracy. The long term consequences of his actions were negative, but only in the context of his successors and their own policies.

It’s actually a relatively simple question to answer. Looking back at the split and the excuse used by Mao to instigate it, it’s clearly a contradictory cluster fuck with no ideological consistency. Even Hoxha can see it. Let’s look at everything Mao did to combat “revisionism” shall we?

Cliques and factions always exist, banning them on paper doesn't ban them in practice. It just leads to them being driven underground and operating in the shadows instead of the open. For the life of me I can't understand why mfs keep insisting that the faction ban needs to be upheld in all situations, as if it wasn't an emergency measure implemented at a crisis point in Soviet history which was never repealed. Imo the central problem of Soviet governance was that it was never able to do away with mechanisms that were meant to be temporary, emergency measures, instead turning them into standard political practice.

I recommend the book since it offers very interesting insights over the American voter. That it turns out that the majority of american people empirically are tribalistic biased and irrational. Of course there are certain things in the book I question specifically the neoliberal shit, but it offers a very interesting insight that most people don't talk about. Like it turns out that huge portions of people that care about politics are by nature very partisan and that the less partisan you are the less you care about politics. Which probably explains the cultural revolution now that I think about

Also yes cliques and factions will always exist but allowing them to fully exist is not a good solution.

In the type of system you advocate im concerned over the problems that we see in liberal democratic systems emerging but in a socialist form. Sure you can argue without the borg, there will be differences true, but there will still be division, us vs them mentality, and division based on political beliefs or economic beliefs. Additionally even without borg you have issues like regional,urban,rural,urban,, and etc differences causing the rise of further factionalism. Plus even in the socialist society there will probably be things like the internet mass media and etc that will also further division.

While I agree there needs to be more democratic output and allowance of more ways of criticism at the same time there needs to be centralized control preventing factionalization and division too. A sorta middle ground

>>692243
>In the type of system you advocate im concerned over the problems that we see in liberal democratic systems emerging but in a socialist form.
The sense of division that seems to accompany liberal democracies is something of an illusion imo, at least in most cases. Why do you think that liberal democracy is such a popular form of government among bourgeois states? Why was it embraced by the most successful and powerful of these including America, Britain, France, and Germany? It is because it allows the various factions of the bourgeoisie, and even other classes to work out their contradictions in the open. In doing so, the state thereby takes on the general character of the bourgeoisie as a class, subsumed the contradictions within this class into itself and existing as a balanced expression of their general interests. Indeed, isn't this what Marxists are constantly saying when the point out that all parties serve the bourgeoisie? The most successful of these even incorporate elements of proletarian interests into the hegemony via social democracy. This is what allows them to be so effective.
>Additionally even without borg you have issues like regional,urban,rural,urban,, and etc differences causing the rise of further factionalism. Plus even in the socialist society there will probably be things like the internet mass media and etc that will also further division.
The problem is that any kind of strict centralization, ideological orthodoxy, suppression of criticism, etc doesn't itself stand above or outside these divisions. Whatever orthodoxy or party line is arrived at will inevitably be the expression of a particular set of interests, which will then become dominant and suppress others, potentially leading to an intensification of contradictions. The divisions you describe are not really political in nature, they are material. Suppressing them doesn't make them go away, it just makes it harder for them to he worked out peacefully and openly. What you end up with is a paper thin veneer of unity which collapses the moment the central force suppressing them does.

Xi is a capitalist leader, nothing like Stalin lol. And the big bad purges of the 1930s were largely done by rank and file and by workers in the party and NKVD. The war curtailed a lot of this and after 1945, the working class was heavily weakened and exhausted.

Stalin, Zhdanov etc conducted a necessary struggle in 1946-1952 because they could see the rising class struggle and bureaucrats who gained in position.

True but the issue is that I'm concerned about is the regular person. Yes the higher elite member division is based mainly on illusion but for your average citizen they consider their difference to be genuine. The common voter genuinely believes in partisan shit and acts upon that and the elites are thus forced to play along in a certain degree. And because of that you get a divided dysfunctional state tho the dysfunction is somewhat on purpose due to borg interests.

Or you get the alternative where like I said the dysfunction comes out of elite interest. Where they manipulate the people into supporting actions that fuck over the government state even tho it's against their interests. Such people will exist even in socialist societies and must be suppresed

As good example of what im talking about Is something like uh the tea party

Also regarding the us voter fair point after all there might be unique problems of the USA causing the problems with the American voter. As thus let me research this further but check voters from different countries. Tho I advise you to read the book since it's interesting

And regarding your other comment yes I agree which is why I believe in allowing good criticism while suppressing suppressing bad. Allow good criticism so to fix the reason why the criticism is emerging in the first place while at the same time removing bad criticism that harms society and factionalism that divides society. Aka fix the problems while suppressing division

>Purges are necessary to remove deadwood, careerists.
And how do you ensure that the people conducting the purges aren't deadwood and careerists? Did Khrushchev himself not carry out purges of Stalinists after his coup?

Tricky question and there's no magic button. I would say that it should be done by slowly removing functions from the party as Stalin suggested doing, once the proletarian dictatorship was established. Additionally, the economic development towards communism would also involve the state losing many of its functions.

The USSR was doing all this without the benefit of hindsight. Now we can see the necessity of raising the banner of struggle against opportunism and revisionism. Its clear that Khrushchev and Gorbachev ultimately did what Kolchak and Hitler could not do. The worst traitors always come from inside.

By that do you mean gradually dismantling the party itself and devolving more power to the legislature? If so I would agree.

Actually it was full of revolutionary Bolsheviks who were much wiser than a jumped up backwards peasant like Khrushchev.

>a jumped up backwards peasant like Khrushchev.
This is a trotskyites attitude son
The reason Kruschev was shit wasn't because he was a peasant
The blessed Stalin was a peasant, Kruschev was shit because he abandoned tractor sharing and the progressive reduction of the workday and lied about Stalin

Stalin wasn't a peasant. The peasant conception of socialism was always a drag on the USSR's progress, since many wanted only to own their own land.
