One could not force others to agree with his views.

Yes, and I haven't been trying to spread, or force, those views lately. Only when it had come up in the past. I'm perfectly fine with others have read them and leaving it at that so I can just tinker on my kits with my views in the corner over there.. so long as the US-Japan alliance us upheld.
 

No, this is not about ethics, but about impossibility. Man is free, and is free to believe whatever he wants, be it true, be it false. Some men could be convinced to change their believings, but that is not a given. Anyway it is important to have freedom of speech.

But freedom of speech lives only as long as it is exercised. If not exercised, then the wrong ideas get accepted, and then bye bye freedom of speech. Freedom of speech exist as a gamble on the people to not give it up. Use it or lose it. Toleration of the wrong ideas is the same as not using it. So either that or make a safety net or a fail safe.

Russia's Growth Expectations Fall Back to Earth

The economic data for 2018 were surprisingly rosy. The outlook for this year is sharply less upbeat.

The Assassination of Sergei Kirov

 

As usual, that summer Kirov and Stalin went on holiday together. Stalin, who treated Kirov like a son, used this opportunity to try to persuade him to remain loyal to his leadership. Stalin asked him to leave Leningrad to join him in Moscow. Stalin wanted Kirov in a place where he could keep a close eye on him. When Kirov refused, Stalin knew he had lost control over his protégé. According to Alexander Orlov, who had been told this by Genrikh Yagoda, Stalin decided that Kirov had to die.

Yagoda assigned the task to Vania Zaporozhets, one of his trusted lieutenants in the NKVD. He selected a young man, Leonid Nikolayev, as a possible candidate. Nikolayev had recently been expelled from the Communist Party and had vowed his revenge by claiming that he intended to assassinate a leading government figure. Zaporozhets met Nikolayev and when he discovered he was of low intelligence and appeared to be a person who could be easily manipulated, he decided that he was the ideal candidate as assassin.

Zaporozhets provided him with a pistol and gave him instructions to kill Kirov in the Smolny Institute in Leningrad. However, soon after entering the building he was arrested. Zaporozhets had to use his influence to get him released. On 1st December, 1934, Nikolayev, got past the guards and was able to shoot Kirov dead. Nikolayev was immediately arrested and after being tortured by Genrikh Yagoda he signed a statement saying that Gregory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev had been the leaders of the conspiracy to assassinate Kirov.

The Assassination of Sergei Kirov

 

 

May be Stalin was plotting Kirov's assassination - but the only known fact is Kirov was shot by mentally unstable Party member who was not only accusing Kirov of firing him from Party job (so he became unemployed) but also having affair with his wife who was working in Kirov's office.  We do not know if he was pushed to it or not, but he was surely on the brink. All this people were not angels, but professional revolution fighters with lots of blood on their hands.

Roman, 

Have just received a book written by Ivan Chistyakov titled "This Day Will Pass." Your thoughts, if any?
