'Many caught up in the mass arrests invented "crimes" so that they could confess to something. Many admitted guilt without even knowing the charges.'
During the course of Josef Stalin's show trials, many defendants never even saw the inside of a courtroom, instead being pronounced guilty, and more often than not executed, on the basis of forced confessions.
Chillingly the process is being repeated today, albeit without the threat of a bullet in the head, in Great Britain.
On the altar of political correctness, UK Parliament employees are currently being "urged" to admit to crimes against the new order.
A digital wall has been set up by Parliament's diversity group Parli-REACH for staff to profess their privilege. they are "urged" to write poetry and give their support for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) colleagues, the Telegraph reports.
They have also have reportedly been issued with an inclusivity toolkit which encourages white workers to acknowledge their 'internalised racism'.
Staff were previously given advice on how to support Black Lives Matter initiatives, including attending protests, which have seen blatant flouting of social distancing rules, and violent attacks on police officers, many of whom had been "urged" to kneel in submission to a baying mob.

Confessional messages posted by those working in the corridors of power include professing “as a white woman I acknowledge my privilege and continue to educate myself”.
Similar admissions of "guilt", described by some MPs as “divisive”, include “as a white man I am conscious of the privilege I have”, “I am a white, privately educated, middle-class female”, and “I am a white man and from that privileged position I now see that I can't ever fully understand the relentless impact of racism.”
The initiative has been attacked by some: in The Telegraph on Sunday, Conservative MP Danny Kruger warns that the "woke consensus" has "taken hold" of parts of Whitehall, warning his party not to "pander" to its supporters with policy.
He writes: "This is a trap that will annoy not just our grassroots and our newly-won ‘Red Wall’ voters, but mainstream opinion everywhere."
Somewhat ironically, in Britain being dismissed from one's job is referred to as being "given the bullet". In the present political climate many will be looking to their own futures.
In Stalin's era, forced confessions were often accompanied by denunciation of family and friends in a desperate attempt to avoid the bullet. But it rarely worked....
