I understand that while Stalin was in power that he had ordered a lot of "nasty" things to happen. The purges are one example and have given Stalin a bad name. However, how is it that when he died, many people mourned his death? Was it because they thought that their country would not be as successful with following leaders? Is it because many people who have lived through the war saw Stalin take a poor and weak country and triumph over the Nazi's and make the Soviet Union force to be reckoned with? I personally do not associate Stalin with the "bad" things but rather the good things that he created within the Soviet Union. Discuss please!

We've discussed this countless times.... and most of us agree with you. There is nothing left to discuss, sorry.

Yeah there was that guy at the beginning who was fragging around a lot and nearly derailed the thread. And then it just dragged on and on.

Stalin is detectably a hero and the architect of making Russia a modern superpower.
The New Communist Party of Britain argues (with convincing evidence) that Stalin is a hero:

Trotskyists however would argue against such evidence. I don't oppose Stalin yet at the same time I don't worship him. This argument often splits the Communist movement into different revisionist theories, which is the last the that Communism needs right now!
