The Meaning Of "Unity"

 The Meaning Of "Unity"


Those who swoon for the unity language will balk at this article. That is part of the reason such people are called useful idiots.  
Totalitarian dictatorships have often spoken of unity. Historically, what follows is purging of the population until no one is left who opposes them.
Then they have unity.
Unity is a great thing and a great slogan. But what the workers’ cause needs is the unity of Marxists, not unity between Marxists, and opponents and distorters of Marxism. V. I. Lenin Unity (April 12, 1914) 
Comm-UNIsm brought about by Comm-UNITY organizers.
Lenin ruled for seven years.
On the 21st January 1924 Lenin died, having killed an estimated 3 million of his people.
Joseph Stalin was a symbol of Unity:

This is what the poster says in Russian with English translation:

У нас есть имя, которое стало символом победы социализма. Это имя вместе с тем символа морального и политического единства советского народа! Вы знаете, что это имя - СТАЛИН 
We have a name that has become the symbol of the victory of socialism. It is the name of the symbol of the moral and political unity of the Soviet people! You know what that name is - STALIN!
Stalin ruled for thirty years.
Stalin had nearly a million of his own citizens executed, beginning in the 1930s. Millions more fell victim to forced labor, deportation, famine, massacres, and detention and interrogation by Stalin’s henchmen.

The destruction of the kulak [higher income farmers] class triggered the Ukrainian famine, during which 3 million to 5 million peasants died of starvation.

We will never know how many millions Stalin killed.

Another source:
A Soviet weekly newspaper today published the most detailed accounting of Stalin's victims yet presented to a mass audience here, indicating that about 20 million died in labor camps, forced collectivization, famine and executions.
The estimates, by the historian Roy Medvedev, were printed in the weekly tabloid Argumenti i Fakti, which has a circulation of more than 20 million.The estimated number of deaths is about equal to the number of Soviet soldiers and civilians believed killed in World War II.
Mao Zedong spoke of Unity in Red Book Chapter 25 "Unity":
The unification of our country, the unity of our people and the unity of our various nationalities - these are the basic guarantees of the sure triumph of our cause. 
It is only through the unity of the Communist Party that the unity of the whole class and the whole nation can be achieved, and it is only through the unity of the whole class and the whole nation that the enemy can be defeated and the national and democratic revolution accomplished. 
We shall solidly unite all the forces of our Party on democratic centralist principles of organization and discipline. We shall unite with any comrade if he abides by the Party's Program, Constitution and decisions. 
This democratic method of resolving contradictions among the people was epitomized in 1942 in the formula "unity, criticism, unity". To elaborate, it means starting from the desire for unity, resolving contradictions through criticism or struggle and arriving at a new unity on a new basis. In our experience this is the correct method of resolving contradictions among the people.
This [our] army has achieved remarkable unity in its own ranks and with those outside its ranks. Internally, there is unity between officers and men, between the higher and lower ranks, and between military work, political work and rear service work; and externally, there is unity between the army and the people, between the army and government organizations, and between our army and the friendly armies. It is imperative to overcome anything that impairs this unity.

Mao Zedong ruled for thirty-three years.

Mao Zedong, founder of the People's Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.
Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing "one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known".
Mr Dikötter, who has been studying Chinese rural history from 1958 to 1962, when the nation was facing a famine, compared the systematic torture, brutality, starvation and killing of Chinese peasants to the Second World War in its magnitude. At least 45 million people were worked, starved or beaten to death in China over these four years

When these people speak of UNITY

They really mean HELL ON EARTH
