Stalin, who lived into the 1950s, was a monster of epic proportions.
This 'monster' created a greatest industrial superstate from the underdeveloped agrarian country. He won the second world war. He made a nuclear shield against the peaceful civilized democracies that nuked Japan and killed most of their own natives.
you will need to find tens of millions of bodies
Mister, you are citing the lies of Solzhenitsyn. There are well-known figures: around 700.000 people where sentenced to death penalty from 1921 to 1953; the absolute majority in 1937-38 during the 'Big Terror' years due to the internal fights in the goverment and the rising Trotskism movement. Should that not happened the Stalin's powers would be overthrown and Germany wouldn't have any difficulties whatsoever 3 years later. The top number of prisoners in the detention and work camps was around 2 million people (compare it to the modern US). On average 0.8% of the population was held in the camps during Stalin era.
There was absolutely no genocide but a starvation from objective reasons. Same as in USA in 30's.
Communism is effectively a mind trap - the theory sounds so beautiful to many people that it must be true, but in practice it has always led to oppression, often bloody at that.
It's a mind trap only for such short-sighted and narrow-minded anti-soviet fanatics like you.
Those who do things in a noble spirit of self-sacrifice are to be avoided at all costs. -- N. Alexander.
