Joseph Stalin

Joseph Stalin, the most brutally powered leader of the 20th century

Joseph Stalin was one of the greatest leaders but not in the way people would imagine. Although he developed the soviet union, his actions were reflected as negative, abrupt, and arbitrary for many soviet citizens. His power was so cruel and arbitrary that you will underestimate how much power he had during his rule, and therefore has significant competition for being the 5th greatest leader.                                              

Stalin was the Sec general of the communist party of ussr

Vision: world communism, make Russia great again

With intention of Vision, he wanted the soviet union to take control of farms as part of the development of the economy, turning a peasant society into an industrial superpower

Implementation: Because Stalin wanted to industrialize the soviet union, he force-collecitified agriculture and used the land to build industries that were similar to industrial revolutions. Failure to give up land targeted would be punished by exile or death. This lead to widespread famines as the food supply was severely disrupted as the supply went down and the supply to demand ratio became unbalanced.

International: seeing people see Stalin arbitrarily take over the land of people and thinking that the land is all his, people feared Stalin to the greatest extent, despite the visions of industrialization.

Joseph Stalin actually changed the Russia and the soviet union for the better, however he almost deliberately used people as involuntary resources for his development. As a result, he was an indirect Cause for 20 million deaths (could mathematically have been charged with over a billion years in prison for counts of negligence or murder or millions of counts of life in prison!)

In his arbitrary communist rule, the union revolved around him. He encouraged citizens to spy on one another, killed millions through famine, sent more people to labour camps, cities were renamed in his honour and censored photographs to censor what he personally did not want the union to see.
