Stalin was a nationalist and an opportunist, using the Russian sphere of influence to advance Russian aims rather than that of Eastern Europe. I think he was true to the pure form of Communism, which others wrongly extrapolate to mean that he supported Stalin’s phony interpretation.

It’s allright, you have gauged communism with those men who’ve failed to upheld it properl, mindfully leaving out others like himwho have influenced public.
