Who even cares about Stalin killing millions of people? Millions of people was about the amount of capitalists or former kulaks there were in the USSR at the time, (2-3 million would add up to more or less 1% of the USSR since the population was about 140 million). So some people got killed, big deal. It happens. I generally think Stalin should have killed more people in fact, cause thousands of people defected over to the Nazis during WWII on the eastern front, so that’s about 50,000 more people that Stalin should have had executed. You can’t really call yourself a socialist without being against capitalism, or against capitalists. Simple fact is that if they aren’t willing to reform, you gotta reform them yourself with lead.
