    Default Stalin deserves his own thread

    I finally found a website that describes everything you need to know about Stalin from Communist's point of view. They even have a book OF STALIN'S OWN WRITINGS. I bet you would never read that in your history classes. I suggest you buy that book and read it.

    Here is a quote from the website:

    The central problem with the critics of Stalin is that they do not understand the historical time period he lived in and the real-world choices that actually existed.

    What about Stalin? In defense of Joseph Stalin

    Check out this statistic:

    But the Kremlin may have pragmatic reasons for its silence: Recent opinion polls have shown that nearly half of Russians hold a largely positive view of Stalin and give him credit for the Soviet victory in the Great Patriotic War — as World War II is known here — despite evidence of his grave strategic errors.

    Stalin was a paranoid meglomaniacal who was responsible (directly or indirectly) for millions of deaths. I mean, you can find apologists from anything/anyone (Hitler, etc.), but that doesn't change historical fact.
    There's no great love here, for most, for Stalin.

    Just how morally bankrupt does one have to be to defend Hitler or Stalin?

    Amazing!

    The following is a sample of the heineous thinking of your meglomaniac DICtator

    A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.

    Death solves all problems - no man, no problem.

    Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.

    I trust no one, not even myself.

    Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don't allow our enemies to have guns, why should we allow them to have ideas?

    It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

    The Communist point of view about Stalin is propagandized garbage.

    Face it Big,

    If you were alive in Stalin's USSR back in 1933, you'd be either sprawled on the floor of the Lubyanka with a bullet in the back of your head or shivering your lice infested arse off at 30 below in some Siberian gulag, or cowering in your bed at night waiting for that late night "knock on the door".

    ...Or perhaps you see yourself as that NKVD goon holding that smoking gun. Even if this was the case, you'ld still be crapping in your pants waiting for your boss (and all under him) to be "replaced" by the newest apple of Stalin's eye.

    Communism sucks balls. Stalin is one of the worst people of all time.

    According to my (Canadian) social studies class, dictators responsible for the most deaths were
    1: Mao Zedong
    2: Stalin
    3: Hitler.

    Not sure of WWII war deaths were included or who they were blamed on.
