Stalin. Part 10: Die for the Future or Live Now
Germany was too different from Russia. Even against the background of the complete collapse of the economy and total unemployment, the bulk of the masses did not want to consolidate for the sake of a happy, but distant future. Fascism is another matter, the components of which (national "purity" and skin revanchism) exactly fell into the matrix of the mental unconscious of the anal-skin Germany, which was restrained by the Versailles Treaty.

1. Germany and the end of the Comintern
The collapse of the Deutsche Mark as a result of Britain's reparations policy led to a strong deterioration in the situation of the masses in Germany, the activities of the Social Democrats and Communists intensified, between whom there was a struggle for influence. By signing the Rappal Treaty with Germany in April 1922, Soviet Russia and its union republics put an end to the country's diplomatic isolation. Russia and Germany mutually renounced claims as a result of the war, which could not but alert France and England.
In January 1923, French troops occupied the Ruhr. The Comintern, represented by Zinoviev, proposed the German Communist Party to overthrow the bourgeois government and establish the dictatorship of the proletariat. Uprising and strikes broke out, inspired by Moscow.
“Already tomorrow to defeat the bourgeoisie by accomplishing a proletarian coup” was unrealistic. Germany was too unlike Russia. The anal-skin mentality of the Germans did not perceive the urethral-sound ideas of the revolution as their own. Even against the background of the complete collapse of the economy and total unemployment, the bulk of the masses did not want to consolidate for the sake of a happy, but distant future. Fascism is another matter, the components of which (national "purity" and skin revanchism) exactly fell into the matrix of the mental unconscious of Germany, which was oppressed by the Versailles Treaty.
The attempts of the Comintern to use the difficult situation in Germany as a springboard for the proletarian revolution only fueled the opposite aspirations of the collective psychic towards the internal stability of the national state and revenge for Versailles. As a result, only the workers of Hamburg came out to the pro-Mintern barricades. In Munich, Hitler raised a beer coup. Calling for help from the military, the German government banned both the Communist and National Socialist parties. Germany split up and so far followed the social democratic path. However, the sympathy of the masses was already on the side of Hitler: unlike the communists, he proposed consonant with the German mentality, that is, meeting the wishes of the majority.
The titanic work of the KKE, funded by the Comintern (USSR), resulted in several local uprisings and strikes, which were demanded to be supported by hotheads obsessed with the idea of a world revolution, above all Trotsky, Zinoviev, Tukhachevsky. The once failed slogan of the "Red Bonaparte": "To Warsaw! To Berlin!" - got a second wind. Russian communists were ready to die for the bright future of mankind, even together with the newborn Soviet Union.
2. Trotsky and Tukhachevsky
Stalin did not like this situation. According to his mental structure, he strove for the exact opposite: not to die for a happy future, but to survive at all costs here and now in the Land of the Soviets along with these daredevils on dashing urethral horses. Not an easy task. Therefore, Stalin's attention is concentrated on the most dangerous direction. He senses an impending split in the army, where the unpredictable and extremely ambitious Tukhachevsky is quickly counterbalancing his former patron and now rival Trotsky.
When they talk about the insidious Stalin's desire to almost behead the Soviet army on the eve of the Great Patriotic War, they completely forget about the events of the 1920s, a systematic understanding of which gives a clear picture of his true motives - to rid the army of any at least some possible sources of insubordination.
But let us return to the 1920s, where the laurels of the "military leader" LD Trotsky haunt the skin commander MN Tukhachevsky. Having become the recognized leader of the red officers, the nobleman Tukhachevsky did not hide his rivalry with Trotsky's military experts. The urethral luxury around Trotsky - a personal armored train, security, honors - also seized the "red Bonaparte". For each Trotsk, Tukhachevsky had his own Tukhachevsk, but Trotsky still had more. At the headquarters of the Western District, Stalin initiates the purges. For all his personal dislike for Trotsky, Stalin cannot allow a split in the army. Nor does he need the consolidation of Trotsky and Tukhachevsky under the faded banners of the world revolution. In those political and economic conditions, the latter meant the unambiguous death of the USSR.
3. To prevent war at all costs
Stalin writes a letter to Zinoviev, where, without directly opposing the "export of the revolution" to Germany, he expresses an extreme degree of doubt about the success of this hopeless enterprise. Stalin warns of the inevitability of war, at least with Poland, if the USSR decides on military assistance to Germany. For all the weakness of the Weimar Republic, the strength of the Reichswehr is well known to Stalin, as is the fact that Britain and France are just waiting for the USSR to cease to exist. After the destruction of Poland by the hands of the Red Army, what would have turned the conditional ally von Seeckt away from the war with Russia if in exchange he received the full support of the European powers? The USSR was not ready for war and in 1941, the chances of victory in 1923 were nil.
In addition, being in constant contact with one of the leaders of the German Communist Party, Ernst Thälmann, Stalin knows: even after taking power, the German workers will not retain it, there is no necessary support for this from the majority of the people of Germany.
In practice, a strange thing happened. Despite the decision of the Politburo to provide military support to Germany, military force was never used. Someone with sufficient political weight should have seriously prevented this. Definitely not Zinoviev and not Trotsky, ardent supporters of revolutionary military intervention. It turns out that it was not without Stalin.
The defeat of the revolution in Germany, Poland and Bulgaria marked the defeat of the Comintern. In Europe brewer's yeast of Nazism fermented, which had nothing to oppose. Providence was pleased to postpone the decisive battle of the two opposing forces for a period long enough for an unparalleled generation of internationalist warriors of the 1941 draft - a generation of death winners - to grow up on the urethral landscape of Soviet Russia.
