Once upon a time, tired of listening to uneducated citizens phrases like " Stalin and Hitler did not differ, they both rot millions of people in concentration camps ", wrote this short note. Now again I hear the same groans. And I feel that it`s time to write a little more fully.
So, everyone knows that in the Soviet Union under Stalin, and the Third Reich under Hitler, millions of people were held in concentration camps.
And everybody who knows, they all know what a concentration camp? No, of course you can talk to each other about the terrible concentration camps and even mention it in the documents. But there is a meaning of the term.
Right now in Russia there is a concentration camp? It seems not, and all condemn Stalinist practice. But here we take, for example, Kopeyskoye labor colony number 6 maximum security. This currently exists, the colony was founded in 1946 under Stalin. That is was "Stalin`s concentration camps?" And that it has changed now? Nothing, except for those related to the overall development of society and technologies such as translation boiler from coal to gas.
So now we have this camp? Or if they still were not?
What workhouse or correctional labor colony? There is no mystery -it`s part of the FSIN. That part where serving a sentence to imprisonment for a period specified in the sentencing of the judiciary, and thus re-educated labor. So it was under Stalin.
That is, attention!, in "Stalin`s camps" Only those who have violated the laws of those days, by the verdict of the then judiciary at the time specified by those authorities . And nothing else.
You can argue a lot about the unfairness of the laws of the Stalin era. But the laws are changing everywhere -and that seemed just yesterday, today seems arbitrary. And vice versa. Here in the United States less than a century ago buggers "flew" for terms up to 25 years in the most severe prison. And now they can not even say that you do not love them. That is, you can not love red, Communists, and even people with sweaty palms -and homosexuals can not.
That`s just me thinking on the plunderers of socialist property, or saboteurs, people like kulaks who illegally at the time engaged in usury. Unimaginable today "landing" for human speculation, but easy to imagine "landing" for tax evasion.Some
called "extrajudicial punishment" sentences "triples", emphasizing the Constitution. But they simply forget that the USSR Constitution was not Scripture, but an instrument in the hands of the workers `and peasants` state, which is directly and discussed.
So the "troika", created by the government within the existing powers were perfectly legal under the laws of the time by a judicial authority. And sentences "Triplets" were perfectly legal.
And what is the difference from the concentration camp labor camp? The difference should not even name.
concentration camp unlike ITL is not a place serving a sentence for violating the law.
in concentration camps can not be reached by the decision of the judiciary, as well as in the ITL is impossible to get without their solutions.
from concentration camp can not leave after the expiration of the sentence, as is not the sentence.
concentration camps appeared more than a century ago, . They served to focus the collection and retention of any part of the population on formal grounds. Inventors camps -English -held there family Boers kept in terrible conditions, sometimes shooting games hostages until the complete cessation of resistance from the Boers male.
Here at the German Nazi concentration camps were . No, there was a judicial and prison system. And in these prisons fell to address many of the German courts. concentration camps existed in parallel German system of punishment . And they caught Jews, Gypsies, Soviet soldiers, who are not lucky enough to be trapped by the Wehrmacht, and many others.
concentration camp inmates worked, and died. But they did not count on access to freedom, because they had no sentences, there was no articles on which they sat. They must have been in concentration camps until they die.In
ITL also worked, and some even died. But they knew what they were and how much they sit sit. And most came "to freedom with a clear conscience." Most of the inmates of German concentration camps were destroyed, and the survivors were not released by the Germans and the Allied troops, the German defeat and occupy the territory of Germany.
So the conclusion is simple and obvious -in Stalin`s concentration camps in our country was not, as there are none now. Was and is the penal system in the camps and prisons serving sentences fair or not -it`s in every case those who broke the law and who is for the courts verdict.
ITL serving sentences in a lot of people, a lot of them out there now. Although, by the way, is less than it is now in the United States not only now less -than under Stalin also sat.
And whether there is a concentration camp? Yes, there is. For example, a stronghold of "global democracy" -the U.S. created a concentration camp at his base in Guantanamo Bay .
So those who compare Hitler and Stalin, and abuts on the concentration camps, knowingly or profound ignorance lie . In Soviet concentration camp after the Civil War were not practiced. And if someone wants to compare Hitler`s concentration camps and remember -it`s the Americans or, adjusted for time to the British.
