You’re Not Going to Believe This, but it’s true: Leon Trotsky collaborated with the Japanese.
How do we know this is true?
A discussion of historical methodology.
In the book “Khrushchev Lied,” author Professor Grover Furr courageously removed the Dead Dogs which obscured the Truth about Stalin era USSR History. The book has been translated in many languages, including Tamil and will soon be available in Hindi, two major languages of India. Khrushchev's 1956 “secret” speech started the USSR on the revisionist road, which led to its eventual overthrow by black market capitalists in collaboration with Yeltsin in 1991 and gave the enemies of socialism a huge propaganda victory, and crushing poverty to the soviet working classes, and it disintegrated the USSR. It created an all encompassing Anti-Stalin paradigm in the Soviet Studies in the US and European Academic circles and the news media. The socialist movement has suffered grievous harm from this falsification of history.
Professor Furr is nearing completion of his research exploring the political life of Leon Trotsky during 1930s in exile. The book on Trotsky is expected to be published by the end of this year. It will raise important issues about historical materialism methodology and why even the Left has come to accept certain views as truth. Discussion will follow Professor Furr’s presentation
