Hi all!

I'm an undergrad historian aspiring to academia. I'm interested in cultural history, especially the history of ideas and the representation of history in culture and media

Academically I have mostly studied the US and N America, though recently I developed a keen interest in Soviet history (being a leftist and also originally from Russia), and was hoping to use this platform to connect with others interested in Soviet history

I'm very excited to be here with y'all!

Ho Chi Minh, western left today 

"...in many localities our cadres were narrow-minded, tending to keep within the law, were complacent with partial successes, and neglected the consolidation of the Party’s underground organisation. [...] A great number of comrades unprincipledly cooperated with the Trotskyites."

Reading Ho Chi Minh's writings for an essay and this particular bit can be read, I think, as a criticism of the western left today, particularly here in England
