To: Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Executive Committee of the Communist International
From: General-Secretary Joseph Stalin

Comrades,

The victory of the fascists in Germany is a disastrous turn in the course of the world revolution. I have spent much time considering the failure of our German comrades to take state power when the opportunity presented itself and have concluded that the tactical strategies adopted by the Comintern at the 1928 International Congress are ultimately an impediment to our future victories and, in some ways, may have been responsible for the failure of the German proletariat to seize power in its own right. As such, I am recommending that the Comintern adopt a new strategy focused on joint action with reformist working class parties and anarchist organizations. This is not to say that the communist parties should subsume or weaken their demands to accommodate those forces; it is, however, to say that the communist parties should make tactical alliances with these forces on issues where they can find some common ground. The communists should retain their separate institutions and demands and continue propagandizing among the proletariat, but they should cease to denounce the actions of every social democratic or reformist party as social fascist or in anyway participate in any actions that divide the working class and allow the fascist wolves to tear proletarian mass organizations to pieces.

I trust that my recommendations will be implemented in a manner consistent with the conditions on the ground in your respective nations.


To: Gosplan
From: General-Secretary Joseph Stalin

Comrades,

The introduction of a Second Five Year Plan in the coming months should be taken with the utmost urgency and the utmost care. We have witnessed the victory of fascism in Italy and now in Germany, and these two nations are and shall continue to be the dagger of the capitalist would-be assassins so long as they are in the iron grip of reaction. To counter this, the development of heavy industry and robust military capabilities are a necessity, as is the development of a strong communications and transportation network, in the event that the capitalist vultures once again try and soak our land in blood. The stability of our agricultural economy is likewise paramount and can provide not only a means by which we can stave off the fascists but also propagandize to the bourgeois democracies of the West -- let these nations burn their crops to push up prices for the exploiters; the workers' republic shall grow more food, better food, and shall feed the whole world.

How to do that is still a manner of conjecture. The campaign against the Kulaks has been effective in some regards but in others has proved counterproductive; not for intent, but in method. I would encourage Gosplan to move away from a campaign oriented toward the forced collectivization of agriculture until we can better understand the effects this policy will have on the sector as a whole. This is not to say that we should give up on collectivization -- far from it. I would instead encourage Gosplan to develop plans whereby peasants are given incentives to voluntarily collectivize production and retain the title to their lands, for the time being. In that same vein, I would also strongly encourage Gosplan to more fully integrate the desires and wishes of the workers themselves into the overall plan structure, perhaps via the use of surveys by the trade unions.

Finally, I would also like to encourage the integration of social welfare services into the Second Five Year Plan and the expansion of these to everywhere in the Union, at as little cost as possible to those receiving aid. We should not sacrifice the incredible gains of October in this regard or in any other.

To: President Franklin Roosevelt
From: General-Secretary Joseph Stalin

Mr. Roosevelt,

I would like to thank you for your swift recognition of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as the legitimate authority in the regions that it presently administers. I, too, look forward to a day in which the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics can trade and do business with one another amicably for our mutual benefit.

Yours cordially,

General-Secretary Joseph Stalin
