Preparing for a big war, the Bolsheviks in the 1930s began with creating a heavy industry and the production of means of production, the same thing Russia must urgently do today, stated philosopher, analyst, and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan in an interview with Anna Shafran on Radio Zvezda, published on December 23 on YouTube.
“What were the Bolsheviks doing? They, as their opponents claim, ‘deliriously’ started industrialization from Group A, that is, from the production of the means of production,” Kurginyan said.
He referred to the point of view of Bolshevik and Stalin’s opponents, who called for building light industry and agriculture in the 1930s.
“If they had started with agriculture and [light] industry: Hitler would be in Moscow in two weeks,” the political scientist explained.
He noted that different conditions require different methods: for example, there are methods that are optimal when it is possible to steadily grow and modernize the economy for a hundred years.
“These methods … are not suitable in conditions when you are about to be screwed,” the expert stressed.
According to him, the Bolsheviks tried all possible and impossible measures to build heavy industry in the USSR in the shortest possible time: for this purpose they negotiated with American businessmen during the Great Depression in the United States.
Under current conditions, Russia will have to repeat the feat of the Bolsheviks by finding new Henry Fords and other foreign capitalists willing to bring full-fledged machine tool construction to the country for big money. Any money should be spent on such capitalists, as long as Russia gets these production lines, the political scientist is convinced.
“But we need our own powerful modern machine tool industry. In the full scale! On its basis we need to develop the military-industrial complex – the complete, the whole industry in autarky mode. Out of it we must build another army, another culture, another information, another ideology. And having all of this we must hold the ground!” – Kurginyan concluded.
