\Yeah that might be true, but did he have to kill 20 million people to achieve it.
I don't think you can justify that modernising the Soviet Union was worth all those dead people\
I wont even think to justify speculation... like "Stalin killed 20 million"...
No need to speculate now, there are documents made available. Unless we want to ignore facts and get into fantasies or falsification.
Such enormous numbers have been chosen wisely. They shock a person, causing strong emotions, but also destroy ability for critical thinking. The
victim of manipulation would not even believe, that one can lie so! This method was widely used in fascist propaganda, for example. Its known to
psychologists that everything that exceeds hundred thousand sounds for an average person as "too much". Therefore if an average person is told that
hundred millions had been killed he would believe it because in his daily life he does not operate with the big numbers.
here is a simple arithmetic:
1) the population of th Russian empire was 150 000 000 in 1914
2) the first world war and civil war 1914-1922 - 15 000 000 killed
3) the second World war - 20 000 000.
4) according to "democratic sources" - 20 000 000 killed by Stalin
5) Total in Russian empire - 1914- 1953- 55 000 000 killed (excluding the natural population loss which in such war times shuld have been great as
6) A Question: considering above-mentioned figures, how the population of the Soviet Union culd be 200 000 000 in 1953 and 250 000 000 in 1983? How
is it possible?
Considering that mostly men are killed in wars...
The conclusion is simple and can be made by any person who hasnt lost critical thinking (even before the real figures has been made public like in the
last two years): there were no mass repressions.
\It has to be said that Stalin (a Georgian) also drowned the ethnic Russians in blood, along with anyone else who either incurred his ire or became a
victim of the execution "quotas" of the secret police.
His (and his lackeys) ruthlessness preserved the Soviet Union from the Nazis, but it also secured his position of total contol as no one dared
contradict the USSR's saviour...... And we know what happened to his loyal servents if he even suspected them of turning against him (or if they
became too popular among the masses). \
Well, the fact is that Stalin has won another war which you are not aware of and that war took place before the second World War and enabled actually
the victory of Soviet Union in the WWII...
OGPU and NKVD (or as you say secret police) were independent from Kremlin (Stalin) and sabotaged all the orders of Kremlin at that time. Their leaders
were the same fanatic followers of Trotsky and his ideas of World revolution - they were all non-russians and emigrants who never cared much about
Russia - for them it was just a territory they lived on and which they robbed. They did repressions on grand scale, Trotsky had to flee the country
when he realized that Stalin, a person of not their clan and whom he considered a dumb puppet, had smashed all their plans (actually they just worked
for their financial supporters: bankers of the USA and England (Jacob Schiff en.wikipedia.org...
) and the rest of the same
House...). Stalin closed the borders of the country from any foreign robbers, rejected the idea of World revolution and dominance and started to...
restore the country after the chaos left by the Jewish permanent revolutioners. But he had to fight his way with OGPU and NKVD, which did everything
to ruin the country in 30s according to the plan of Israel Gelfand ((en.wikipedia.org...
) (too much money had been
invested... and the dividents had to be paid...).
There was a war between Kremlin and the so-called Fifth Column and this was necessary, otherwise the country was doomed to become just another source
of raw materials for the West. No way out. and stalin defeated it...just before the WWII...
