Organizations Using the Internet

Workers of the world, unite! Proletarian comrades, throw off the shackles of your capitalistic oppression!! Death to the bourgeuosie!!! You get the point — Commies, Reds, Bolshies, Stalinists, Trotskyites, Maoists, etc. After the stunning successes of North Korea and the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, they figure the rest of us want to join in. One of many ironies is that several of the U.S.-based pages carry advertising. They espouse violent communist revolution yet promote capitalist ventures, so it's not as if we should expect much logic from them....

Fun fact about communist heroes — most of them used pseudonyms.
Ernesto Guevara de la Serna —
- Born into a prosperous family, spent his youth traveling on holidays throughout Latin America. Trained as a physician, which came in handy when torturing captives. Played prominent role in Cuban revolution, spent 1965-1966 in Congo organizing Patrice Lumumba Battalion. Killed in Bolivia in 1967.
Vladimir Ilych Ulyanov —
- Stayed safely outside Russia during the revolution, entered by private train from Helsinki once it was safe.
Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili —
- Studied for priesthood in Georgian Orthodox Church (this quite obviously didn't take). Changed his name to the Russian for ``Joe Steel''. Learned Russian as a second language, never lost Georgian accent. Killed more non-combatants then Hitler.
Lev Davidovich Bronshtein —
- Jewish heritage was not a good thing under Stalin (or pretty much any Soviet leader), so he needed a new name. ``Trotsky'' was derived from a German term for ``defiance''. Exiled and sentenced in absentia, killed with an ice ax by one of Stalin's agents in Mexico City in 1940.
Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov,
Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Skriabin —
- Changed his name to ``Of the Hammers'', one of the few leading Bolsheviks actually in Russia in the February Revolution of 1917. Credited with inventing the ``Molotov Cocktail''. Negotiated the initially secret Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact between Nazi Germany and the USSR in 1939, which led to the forcible annexation of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in 1940, but which fell apart when Germany invaded in 1941. Expelled from the Communist party in 1964, reinstated in 1984 before dying in 1986.
Fidel Castro Ruz —
- Fidel and his brother Raul were the bastard children of the married Angel Castro y Argiz and his cook, Lina Ruz Gonzalez. OK, not exactly a pseudonym...
