Yes, Stalin I think was a despotic opportunist. I'm not very informed on his "ideals" but know that many life (other people's) affecting decisions were little more than whims (is that a word?).

Re: rulers

Stalin was a monster, but he was OUR monster, without whom the Allies, of whom the Soviet Union was one, could not have defeated the nazis.

Something we tend to have forgotten, almost as soon as the nazi regime collapsed.

Of course it really was the Russian PEOPLE who did this, so fierce and adament as they were in resisting the nazis.

Love, C.
