The story goes that Stalin demanded his command to appear together for a demonstration. This meeting would take a hideous turn one filled with blood feathers and a newly educated set of Soviet commanders on the nature of ruling the masses.
Stalin began to pluck a chicken while it was alive and in great agony, its feathers were removed one by one. The floor became filled with blood and feathers in a puddled mass with the frenzied shrieks of the chicken filling the room in a fevered pitch.
When the heinous act was done the chicken cowered in fear and in pain it fell back to what it does best, being a chicken. Stalin’s next act of the demonstration was to feed the distraught bird.
Stalin after plucking the chicken of its feathers began to feed it, dropping bits of wheat after his footsteps as he walked around the room.
The bird started following, gobbling up the bits of food. “See!”, Stalin remarked, “Even though I have done the most terrible acts on this creature it still follows me if it is given a small meaningless treat every now and then. This is how to govern stupid people.”

If the politicians really wanted to help the people, they would not have shut down small businesses for a year.
