    The Holodomor was not a government policy.
    See the bay of pigs invasion, Latin America in general, the middle east, etc etc
    It was very common for Africans to immigrate into countries like the USSR, East Berlin, etc because there was virtually no racism as a result of advances in anti-discrimination laws.

    That was just one, & not even the biggest in the USSR.
    Not gov policy?
    Ref....
    Holodomor - Wikipedia
    Far fewer deaths.
    And not even due to the economic system.
    Aye, the dismal human rights & conditions applied to all equally....except high party members.
    To have equality of poor outcome hardly seems human rightish.

    Of course conditions were worse compared to the capitalistic world, but that's because the two systems are too different for a realistic comparison. And even then, the living conditions of the people in the USSR were acceptable, even by American standards.
    For reference, the USSR eliminated homelessness.

    One person's "acceptable" is another's "dismal".
    One ex-pad I know fled because of anti-semitism.
    I guess they like black folk but hate Jews.

    Once again, this is more of the same imperialistic propaganda. Anti-Semitism in the USSR was not found at a higher rate than other countries. "Other countries" not including Germany before you try to pull that switcheroo on me.:p

    No, this was from the horse's mouth, ie, a real estate broker I used.
    It's why he & his wife fled the USSR.
    (He moved to Israel, but then eventually Ameristan because it was best....for them.)
    That's just commie propaganda.
    (You invited me to go there.)

    They didn't flee as a result of state sponsored anti-Semitism, since it didn't exist.
    (unless you count the state sponsored atheism, but that's not really anti-Semitic)

    But neither was the USSR the worker's paradise full of equality as its fans claim.

    It was still pretty good.
    On par with western countries, at least.

    Useless, they did, actively hurts a country more than it helps.

    Pffft.

    There's also this one. Although it involves a bar room and thus is unsuitable for the little beasties.

    In any case, the point is, the church limited its "tax" at 10%. To do more than that is to tax more than God.
