Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch

Hoxha Did Nothing Wrong

The title of this post is just a joke – it is not my serious assertion that Albania’s communist dictator Enver Hoxha did exactly nothing wrong – but is there something positive that can be said about this avowed Stalinist ideologue? This is Aryan Skynet, so you know there is!

Born into a Muslim family, Hoxha worked as a schoolteacher before rising to national prominence during the Second World War as a leader of the Communist Party of Albania, later renamed the Party of Labor. Fascist violators of Albanian sovereignty were obliged to BTFO. Hoxha split with wartime Yugoslavian allies over Albanian territorial interests and in the aftermath of the war pursued an independent course of autonomy and economic self-sufficiency for his country. The communists deposed Albania’s King Zog – the liquidation of all things “Zog” being a necessary first step in the construction of any social-nationalist state. “The communist regime took swift and severe measures to centralize the economy following an orthodox Stalinist model,” writes Helga Turku:

Throughout 1946, the state nationalized all industries, placed trade under government control, and banned the private sale of land.

For the next four decades Hoxha isolated Albania in an attempt to carry out one of the most ambitious, far-reaching experiments in socialist orthodoxy. He became obsessed with creating what he termed a pure Stalinist state. Although Hoxha claimed to be a faithful adherent to the Marxist canon, in practice he initiated his own version of Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist ideology. Hoxha was a fierce Stalinist rather than a Marxist or Leninist. For him, it was actually Stalin who had discovered the true purpose of the state, and its manner of rule over the populace.1

Hoxha

Enver Hoxha (1908-1985)

Hoxha did much to eradicate illiteracy in Albania and entertained “the idea that the key to the problem of modernization and unity rested with the younger generation,” as Bernd Fischer summarizes:

While much of the older generation could clearly never be changed, with proper education and correct cultural influences the youth could construct the new socialist Albania. As with other aspects of Hoxha’s state, this crusade too began during the war. When not fighting, the men and women of the Partisan movement received instruction, including the basics of reading and writing as well as political education.

Once the war was over, education and culture received more serious attention and the major themes of both again indicate the depths of Hoxha’s nationalism. Extreme respect was accorded to the heroes of Albanian nationalism, whether or not they conformed to Hoxha’s Stalinist mold. Much care was extended to the preservation of national monuments, historic towns and cities, many of which were designated as museum cities. Hoxha insisted that Albania’s cultural heritage, folk costumes, folk songs and dances be preserved. Despite this emphasis on history and tradition, the central focal point for education and culture was the liberation struggle of the Albanians against the Axis invaders during the war.2

Hoxha, it has been suggested, “reversed the Leninist idea of national form and socialist content and established his priority of socialist form with a nationalist content.”3 Like his Romanian communist contemporary Ceausescu, Hoxha restricted abortion to boost the Albanian birthrate. Industrialization was also stressed, and a national electrification program was highly successful, as was the effort to make Albania agriculturally self-sufficient.

Another distinctive component of Hoxha’s national communism was its abolition of religion on nativist grounds. Religion is a divisive force in this Muslim-majority country, so Hoxha took as his credo that “the only religion of Albania is Albanianism.” “Until 1967 the government tolerated the continuation of the three religions in Albania, although the numerically dominant younger generations, raised the ‘new way’ through school and by work in factories and agricultural cooperatives, set less and less store by religious belief, condemned as ‘the opiate of the people’,” relate Russell King and Nicola Mai.

In 1967, as part of Albania’s “cultural revolution”, Hoxha outlawed religion and created the world’s first atheist state. All places of worship were closed down and turned into museums or youth centres; clergy were “retrained”, pensioned off, imprisoned or (in a few [fucking based] cases) executed. Hoxha argued that religion was a subversive force in the country, representing the “trojan horse” interests of the historical predatory neighbours and enemies – Turkey (Islam), Greece and Serbia (Orthodoxy) and Italy (Roman Catholicism). Parents were discouraged from giving their children names with any religious significance […]4

“If Hoxha understood Albania to be the vanguard of Stalinism in the world, it is clear why in his view this society must also take the lead in the struggle against religion,” elaborates Denis Jans:

This theme, which echoes through all of Hoxha’s writings, receives special emphasis in his 1967 Report on the Role and Tasks of the Democratic Front for the Complete Triumph of Socialism in Albania. Here the standard Marxist objections to religion are repeated, but only in the most perfunctory way. In Hoxha’s words, “The religious world outlook and the communist world outlook are irreconcilable. … They express and uphold interests of antagonistic classes.” But class analysis is not the only grounds for the repudiation of religion. Though he repeats this Marxist dogma, Hoxha cannot disguise the fact that for him, another factor makes the elimination of religion even more urgent: religion must be eliminated because it stands in the way of modernization. […]

Most important of all, however, religion must be destroyed because of its association with foreign domination. Religion is essentially alien to this society, imposed by those from outside. That is why the clergy, for instance, have always “made common cause with the invader.” For Hoxha, “revolution” means not so much war between classes in this society; rather, it means “to uproot alien customs, traditions and influences, religious superstitions,” and so forth. Religion indeed stands on the side of the class enemy, but more important, it stands on the side of the foreign oppressor.5

A world-historical window pops up, Skynet, and it asks you: “Are you ready” – really ready – “to uninstall communism?”

        What do you think of Spencer drawing the line in the sand at Islam in terms of the cultural divergences he would be willing to allow within a hypothetical ethnostate? This would, for instance, exclude many of the folks in Southeastern Europe – or far-flung peoples like the Nuristanis of Afghanistan.

        I remember Spencer saying that, and he’s said basically the same thing about Jews. I agree with Don Logan on this: Jews & Muslims are #TeamSemite and are on a fundamental level incompatible with the West. That said, the Muslims in South-Central Europe and Albania seem to be fairly Westernized and tamed from what I understand. I’d say it’s good to take a rhetorical stand against it, but since there isn’t going to be some sort of World Wide White Empire in our lifetimes, it’s just rhetoric not reality.

        I’ve always been suspicious of Islamophobia in America. Not in Europe, because Islamic immigration is a serious threat genetically, politically, and culturally. But American Islamophobia is based on the 9/11 false flag, fanatical Zionism and imperial interests.

        In a “restored” White civilization, White Muslims would be just like White Amish or White Mormons, a kind of wacky religious fetish that some people are into. Frankly I don’t think traditional religion of any kind has much of a future among Whites.

        Of course it didn’t. Communist regimes are completely dysfunctional and always rely on a flourishing black market in goods and services. The USSR was run not by apparatchiks alone but also by the crime syndicates who applied their own codes unhindered or encouraged by the State. Gulag histories are replete with accounts of criminal gangs not subject to work obligations and given free rein to terrorize “enemies of the people”.

        One other point, when still under communist rule, Albanians could capture Italian TV and see the opulence that media selectively presented. Stewing in their own deprivation, when finally possible, they fled Albania in large numbers (25% of the population). With arrival in Italy or Greece comes the realization that the streets aren’t paved with gold. So it’s either compete with locals on the labor market, undercutting wages and conditions thanks to their status as “irregulars”, or else crime.

    “…ancient mountain codes of behaviour,..” you know that’s trouble.

    Look at Hoxhas huge Melon head. He seemed to have done a good job running the country given what he had to work with. Shows what a competent Nationalist can do under any type political system as long as he looks out for the National interest first.

      When I was in the sixth grade, every kid in my social studies class got assigned a different country for research papers we had to write (I remember the laughter when one putz got assigned Hungary), and mine was Albania. I don’t remember much about it. As I recall, I mainly transcribed whatever information I found in an encyclopedia and quoted a National Geographic article. This was not long after the fall of the Soviet Union and as I recall the article was about the struggle of a country attempting to find itself while shaking off the horrors of communism – you know, the sort of thing a mainstream magazine would write about a country the globalists hope soon to bury in debt and porn. Mainly, I remember the pictures of a backward-looking society: dirty people in conditions that were, by First World standards, fairly primitive. There was also this sinister photograph of some government official, but all you could see of him was his glaring eyes and the top of his head over a balcony. Probably some leftover nationalist apparatchik that the editors of the magazine wanted Americans to fear and despise.

        Fortunately the point @icareviews is making isn’t really about the “communist mode of production” at all, nor the economy in general.

        Imagine pointing to a relatively healthy Black family, with a strong and responsible father, and saying, “see, patriarchy works.” Then someone comes along and says, “yeah but they listen to R&B music which is clearly inferior to Bach and the classical tradition.”

        That’s called “missing the point on purpose.”

      My point isn’t so much to say that Stalinism is “good”, but to encourage a more nuanced approach to history than public schools, for instance, have given us. Growing up at the tail end of the Cold War, I had no understanding of the nationalistic elements of the various Eastern Bloc countries’ respective interpretations of Marxism or the extent to which their ideologies protected populations from some of the problems that were simultaneously festering in the “Free World”. I’m not Albanian, so I can’t say anything about the experience of living under Hoxha and how oppressive it was; but I do know that communist nostalgia is a real thing in much of Eastern Europe these days, and it interests me to learn what informs the sense of loss.
