Anti-tankie resources and notes
Modern use of the term “tankie” varies widely but tends to refer to those who white-wash or fully deny the crimes of both historical authoritarian-communist regimes and current tenuously socialist regimes. According to The Guardian, "tankie" is a term for Stalinists. The epithet has stuck because tankies also supported "sending the tanks in" in cases such as Czechoslovakia 1968 Prague revolt, Afghanistan 1979, Bosnia and Kosovo/a (in the case of the Serbian state), and so on (whereas the rest of the communist movement has gravitated towards anti-militarism). This document is a selection of trusted sources with information about socialism to make denialism, apologism and historical revisionism more difficult.

Weimar Republic Hyperinflation through a Modern Monetary Theory Lens
In this doc, we dispute the mainstream view that the inflation of the Weimar Republic was caused by a proactive expansion of the stock of money by the German government acting in concert with the Reichsbank. In part 1, we examine the source of the price level and causes of inflation, first from a neoclassical and then from an MMT perspective. In part 2, we analyse the Weimar hyperinflation. In part 3, we apply the insights of MMT to Weimar hyperinflation and present our alternative narrative.
