You make good arguments in that 1944 Crimean thread...can't believe people are arguing that (apologizing for) an ethnic cleansing of a region is "fine" as long as so-called "socialists" are doing it. Those people are fucking demented.
The USSR under Stalin was much less 'top-down' than Khrushchev and beyond.
I do not agree with Stalin's decision to ban homosexuality, he may have had a reason but it had very little effect and was just a plan hatched from his paranoia.
There are only really three revisionist types.
Titoists (Market Socialism)
Soviet Union post-1953 (Peaceful co-existence as well as numerous economic changes)
Maoists (Three Worlds Theory, numerous other beliefs too, only Hoxhaists believe Maoism is revisionist)
Revisionism isn't an insult we throw around, it is a factual statement that applies to 2 or 3 beliefs.
