    Suslovism is the ideology of Mikhail Andreyevich Suslov, a key statesman and the unofficial chief ideologist of the Soviet Union. It is characterized by its hardline orthodox Marxism-Leninism, fighting against many revisionist efforts.

    History

    Mikhail Andreyevich Suslov was the chief ideologue of the USSR as he served as the ideology hardliner within the Soviet Union to oppose all reform attempts of Marxism-Leninism. Suslov was a hardline Stalinist who conducted a great purge in the Baltic state against Baltic nationalists and supervised the deportation and genocide of Chechens. He also provoked a full-scale conflict against Titoist Yugoslavia, obstructing Khrushchev and later Brezhnev's reconciliation attempt with Yugoslavia. He also tried to obstruct the de-Stalinization process of Khrushchev in social and economic spheres, and later persauded Brezhnev to stop this process. Additionally, Suslov led the conservatives and Stalinists in Khrushchev era USSR, vehemently obstructing his reforms, from the liberalizations of literatures and arts to foreign policy detentes.

    Suslov's main achievements were increasing the industrial output of Lativa under his rule by 14 times and overthrowing Khruschev, which saw the installation of Brezhnev as the head of the USSR, his staunch commitment to supporting third-world national liberation movements, such as the Algerian FLN movement, the Nasserist Egypt, and many others. He was also credited for living a plain life and refusing to engage in corruption. Suslov was forced to support the invasion of Hungary despite his initial reservations due to the overwhelming support of the presidium. Still, he later opposed the invasion of Czechoslovakia and was skeptical of using social imperialist methods. However, he supported the invasion of Afghanistan and staunchly opposed all nationalist movements within the USSR and the Socialist Camp, favoring a more centralized Soviet state and world socialist movement.

    As the leader of the Stalinist wing of the CPSU, Suslov was allied with Neo-Stalinists like Grigory Romanov. Suslov opposed any further detente attempt by Kosygin and Brezhnev with the USA despite their diplomatic flexibility due to his skepticism of trade with the capitalist bloc; despite this, he was a staunch supporter of the peaceful co-existence theory due to the threat of a nuclear war, and he sharply criticized Mao for opposing this theory. Since the mid-1960s, Suslov became increasingly hardline on foreign and domestic policies as he blocked the 1965 economic reform, voiced strong criticisms against Maoist China 's "revisionism," and criticized it as deviating from Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy, just like Titoist Yugoslavia. Despite his overall support of Stalin, Suslov was critical of his autocracy and personality cult. He restored the collective leadership of the Lenin era, as opposed to the one-man rule of the Stalin and Khrushchev eras. Suslov also opposed the "Social Fascism" theory of Stalin. He was generally supportive of communist parties allying social democratic/socialist parties, which he saw as a "progressive force", especially in the third world. However, he was vehemently opposed to Eurocommunism and any attempt to revise orthodox Marxist-Leninist ideals of violent revolution and a one-party socialist republic, as he saw these attempts as revisionist.

    Suslov was often criticized for his deportation of Jews and his prosecutions and genocides of anti-Soviet minorities such as the Chechens and the Lithuanians during Stalin era, as well as being a dogmatic Stalinist who refused any ideological compromise and his rejection of the theory of Peaceful Coexistence. His staunch opposition to any reforms or any attempts of revision to the CPSU party line meant that only after his death was the USSR able to embrace real reforms.

    Doctrine

    As a hardline orthodox Marxist-Leninist, Suslovism is very authoritarian and is a firm supporter of state socialism, and he rejects Market Socialism as revisionist and hates Khrushchev for “betraying” Marxism-Leninism. Suslovism's foreign policy is very hardline as he sees Titoist Yugoslavia, Hoxhaist Albania, and Maoist China as either revisionists or left deviationists who split the world socialist movement, therefore, giving the "imperialist west" an advantage. However, unlike other CPSU members in the Brezhnev era, Suslovism was vehemently opposed to corruption and cronyism. He was also generally skeptical of social imperialist methods like military invasions of the Eastern European satellites of the USSR despite his opposition to the ideological divergence of these countries from the doctrine of Moscow.
