Joseph Stalin and Totalitarism

We live, not feeling the country beneath us,Our speech inaudible ten steps away,But where they're up to half a conversation -- They'll speak of the Kremlin mountain man.His thick fingers are fat like worms,And his words certain as pound weights.His cockroach whiskers laugh,And the tops of his boots glisten.And all around his rabble of thick-skinned leaders,He plays through services of half-people.Some whistle, some meow, some snivel,He alone merely caterwauls and prods.Like horseshoes he forges decree after decree -- Some get it in the forehead, some in the brow, some in the groin, and some in the eye.Whatever the execution -- it's a raspberry to himAnd his Georgian chest is broad.---Osip Mandelstam, We Live, Not Feeling, 1934We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?- Joesph Stalin

Lasting Impact

Stalin proved a very large lasting impact. He was considered as one of the most dangerous people in the world. He kept Lenin's empire of the Soviet Union and made his idea even worse. The Russians today still remember him some as a hero and some as an enemy.
