I’m a young Finnish Communist & Marxist-Leninist. This channel is about the science of Marxism-Leninism. I give information and my personal thoughts on various topics dealing with Marxism-Leninism. Feel free to ask questions and voice your opinion.
The Finnish capitalist state tolerated and helped Fascism already before their alliance with Hitler in WWII. The Finnish Fascist movement wanted Mannerheim to be their dictator. The Fascists attempted a Mussolini style coup in 1932 but it failed as most capitalist politicians preferred the facade of democracy. The coup had little to no popular backing and relied on the aid from politicians, military leaders & industrialists inside the government, the same way Mussolini did. The coup was an act of treason, but none of the people involved got real sentences. Their leader only got 2 years of house arrest for his treasonable activities. This should give an indication of how fascist the Finnish state was at the time. Nobody else except the Fascists, would have gotten merely 2 years (and not even in jail) for treason.
