    No one is able to make socialism/Sovietism as horrifying and hilarious at the same time as Yuri Maltsev.

    Here are some of my favorite Maltsev speeches:

    Inflation and the Bolsheviks

    What Soviet Agriculture Teaches Us

    Selling Liberty: National Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

    Too Big Not to Fail: Imperial Governments from Moscow to Washington

    Requiescat en pace.

    We can't afford to lose too many voices like his - survivors of Soviet communism who can tell us exactly what Marxism inevitably becomes...
