Your inflated sense of Albanian worth has you thinking that they actually had a position to take, which isn't the case. Beggars can't be choosers.
lol, funny you would call albania a beggar in the china relationship. albania was the one who gave the almighty chinks a freakin' seat in the un but yes, i would refer to communist albania as beggars and no, hoxha pushed and made references about china's leadership on a public scale before any measure were taken by the chinese.
So I take that as a no, you don't have a single stitch of evidence to support your claim? On the other hand, after meeting Stalin, Hoxha:
1- Implemented several collectivization programs(often the major stepping stone in the restructuring of a commie economic base)
who in god's name cares what he implemented? are you trying to convince me hoxha's albania changed after meeting stalin? it did, i don't deny that.
2- Implented agrarian reform(Another basic, communist economic policy that usually takes place in the beginning of the transition. Hmmm, I wonder, why did Hoxha wait so long to start the landholder switch? OHHHH, I KNOW I KNOW! Maybe because he was a centrist?!?!?!?!?!?!/!
look you absolute dunce, hoxha was never a centrist.
"Since the time when we first became acquainted with the Marxist-Leninist theory. we had always dreamed, night and day, of meeting Stalin. During the period of the Antifascist National Liberation War this desire had grown even stronger. Next to the outstanding figures of Marx, Engels and Lenin, Comrade Stalin was extremely respected and dear to us, because his teachings led us to the founding of the Communist Party of Albania as a party of the Leninist type, inspired us during the National Liberation War and were helping us in the construction of socialism"
hoxha was always a stalinist. it just took the meeting with stalin to take action on his ideologies. jesus christ, it's impossible someone is as naive and mistakenly blunt as you are. you're conversation on the matter is either clouded by your feelings towards me or you are just incapable of coming up with the obvious.
What are you even talking about? I was quoting the source you used- wikipedia, which is even less credible than it usually is, since even you freely admit it was written by some Albanian kid you know.
he is not an albanian kid and the "kid" wrote an entire book. i trust his word. as for finding a source. get off your ass and do some research. it's bound to be on the internet if you just type l'humanite and enver hoxha.
And you know this how? Sorry Johnny, but a 13 year old Albanian nationalist fanatic with an IQ less than 60 isn't exactly a quality resource.
how clever a comment.
Tell me, what do you think is discussed in a political newsletter? Gardening? Constructing model airplanes? What? Surely not politics. /Sarcasm.
as i stated before, nobody cares what an albanian college drop out thinks of what "should" be albanian politics. at most, the man wrote about the reign under king zogu and the tensions growing in the region.
