Slave (n): A person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them   
   
I expect there were harsh punishments for a 'worker' who refused to work. That still technically makes them slaves, no?

Soviet achievements are even more astounding when you note that the vast majority of Soviet industry was located in the Nazi-occupied part of the Union, and that it had to be dismantled and reassembled east of Moscow.

The steadfast determination of the Red Army and the disciplined leadership of the Communist Party was the only thing that stood between the fascist hordes and a free world.

Say thanks to Greece for that. They made Hilter change his plans and send more troops in Greece because the Greeks humiliated Musolini and his Italian forces.

There's about about four Marxist-Leninists, one Council Communist, and another, of whom I'm a little unsure of his specific ideology.

Then there's about four right-libertarians, two fascists, a couple of others. It's pretty balanced.

Red Army high command underestimated the Finnish military capability, and gave command to inexperienced regional officers near the border. Once the **** up was clear, commanders replaced, and the winter was over, the Soviets won.

Really, the Finns only stood a chance so long as the Winter persisted. It didn't, of course.

One word: Kolyma.
Also, reducing every nation to a gutter by forcing on them "equality" by killing the elites, poverty, idiotic bureaucracy, unnatural economic decisions ending in a disastrous recess, censorship far greater than in fascist Italy for example, attempts of total control over people conscience and lifestyle...

Uh huh, forcing equality. We're not egalitarians.

Central planning in the USSR delivered anything but poverty. You don't turn a country with a predominately (80%) illiterate peasant population into the world's second largest economy without drastically decreasing poverty.

Poverty in Poland is barely any better than what it was in the late 80s.

Totalitarianism is a myth, even in the case of fascism. It's merely a propaganda tool to equate communism with fascism, and makes little sense considering how bitterly the Soviets and Germans fought each other.

Hmm, medical staff were being payed the same as ditch diggers, weren't they?

The famine in the Ukraine was, with errors in DJ 4DM1Nistration (which Stalin himself acknowledged), was primarily caused by sabotage on behalf of kulaks, who incited peasants to burn crops and slaughter livestock.

Yeah, such a claim is often raised, but that is absurd. Up to eighty million people died in World War 2. Are we then adding the number of Soviet deaths again? Whatever we do, we're looking at between 80 million and 100 million deaths. Well, from there, see pic related.

Despite the fact that it is irrelevant, no. One does not have to live in a country to know things about it.

Your first statement I won't discuss, it's sbsurd.
Especially in Ukraine. Yep, industralization went good. And without constant arming and robbing the Comecon it would go to hell in 5 years, because it was obsolete and, yes, forced.
And just let me remind you, that kill count of Soviet Union on it's own people was probably greater than kill count on the fronts of II WW.
Listen, are you from/do you live in a country that experienced socialism?

also the fact Stalin killed all the experienced officers before Operation Barbarossa,
and that Russia was still recovering from the revolution (lack of food, industry, etc. etc.) also Russians have always preferred Quantity over Quality, and last but not least Russia was just starting to gear up when fully prepared German panzer divisions attacked the USSR.

The pyramid one is true, to an extent. The pyramid workers were paid in five gallons of beer a day, Egyptian beer was different from modern brews; it was thicker with a lower alcohol content and was actually a staple of the Egyptian diet. Even children would be given a bowl of beer with their meals.

The beers brewed at that time period were thicker and had more protein and carbohydrates than modern brews, so had a much higher nutritional value.

In fact, beer was so important to ancient civilizations that the Sumerians had more than 40 times as many words for beer as the Inuit tribes have for snow.
