No. He was the apex of wanting others, and himself, to buy into dogmatic thought.

no, but Zhukov was

He was a vile gangster.

Are there any works that defend or at least highlight some of Stalin's decisions or was he just utter shit all around?

How could he have been utter shit all round?

He successfully industrialised the USSR and won WW2. Pretty damn solid achievements even if he did have to break a few counter-revolutionary eggs to make the omlette.
>>
>>509069
Yeah thats what I was thiking, yet people rag on him all the time
>>
>>509069
>counter-revolutionary

It wasn't just counter-revolutionaries. Why is it always one extreme or the other with every figure? It's either "he was an incompetent madman" or "he was a godlike figure of supreme wisdom and morals."

>>508983
what makes you say that?

Yes it was. There was no reason for him to show mercy to counter-revolutionaries and traitors.
>>
>>509833
Proofs?
>>
>>509889
Same as McCarthy
>>
>>508967
he certainly was, the greatest military commander since Napoleon.
>>
No, not at all. An ubermensch is a man who destroys prior values and imposes ones of his own creation. Stalin hardly destroyed Lenin's values, and his own were largely drawn from Marxist doctrine.
>>
>>508576
He looks like an Indian grandpa

that's because of the colour of the photo

All he did was inherit the industrialisation efforts started under the Tsar.
>>
>>508967
Pffft what?

You commieboos are so ridiculous.

Zhukov was mediocre tier.
>>
>>511729
McCarthy didn't kill 20 million people
>>
>>513708
nither did stalin
>>
>>509069
But Stalin, you are the counter-revolutionary

>All he did was inherit the industrialisation efforts started under the Tsar.

This is not true at all. The Tsar wasn't even the ruler Stalin succeeded, you are thinking of Lenin.
>>
>>509069
He tried, with human wave tactics, to lose the war very hard.
>>
>>513691
Given that Ryssia/USSR lost something like 60% of industry in Civil War, Anglo-French funding and trading partners aside from Germany, its questionable if pre-1914 efforts had any effect.
>>
>>514067
He did actually.
>>
>>514331

I can smell a counter-revolutionary when I catch a whiff.

You belong in a gulag.
