Yes, he was also the dictator of it till 1953 when he died.
Stalin changed the Soviet Union because ; ; ; Strong resistance to Stalin's plans came from peasants , who responded by hoarding crops and killing livestock . However , thes…e actions only led Stalin to step up the program. By 1930 , 10 million peasant households had been collectivized . Collectivization was done at tremendous cost . The hoarding of food and slaughter of livestock produced widespread famine . Stalin himself is supposed to have said that 10 million peasants died in the famines of 1932 and 1933 . The only concession Stalin made to the peasants was that each collective farm worker was allowed to have one tiny , privately owned garden plot . Stalin's programs had other costs as well . To achieve his goals , Stalin's strengthened his control over the party bureaucracy . Those who resisted were sent into forced labor camps in Siberia . Stalin's desire to make all the decisions by himself also led to purges , or removals , of the Old Bolsheviks - those who had been involved in the early days of the movement . Stalin purged army officers , diplomats , union officials , party intellectuals , and numerous ordinary citizens . . . The Stalin Era also overturned much of the permissive social legislation that was enacted in the early 1920s . To promote equal rights for women , the Communists had made the divorce process easier , and they had also encouraged women to work outside the home . After Stalin came to power , the family was praised as a small collective in which parents were responsible for teaching the of hard work , duty , and discipline to their children . Divorced fathers who did not support their children were heavily fined .
He launched the first in a series of five-year plans to modernize agriculture and build new industries from the ground up.
he believe in the ideas of the philosopher Karl Marx in the beginning, that the peasants had the right to own land and to have a say in the government. Later he changed some i…deas of Marx concerning "additional product" and so on, he proofed it as fiction. Stalin & Marx didn't care about peasants he only cared about industrial workers. Stalin believed in Marxism and Leninism which means he believed that capitalism was evil and should be destroyed. They also believe that the whole world should be socialist (where the government doesn't have a say in the country, but has a very big say in the economy and regulates it for the good of the world) they also believe the world should be run by the workers and capitalists should be reeducated, and capitalism should be destroyed, that people should be taught how to live peacefully and make many farms so starvation and poverty don't exist and finally make way for true communism which is the destruction of the state and were people live without a government and work because they want to not because they have to. Stalin believed in socialism in one country, a belief Marx didn't share. he also believed in the aggravation of the classes from within, which is his idea that the country and the party will turn on their brothers and restore capitalism, so he should take complete control of the country and make sure that doesn't happen. he also liked to be worshiped, he hated religion (as did all Marxist's. he believed in making the USSR great. he believed in industrialisation and a strong military. he believed in libertarianism and unity and a self sufficient country. He believed in bureaucracy, democracy in name only and totalitarianism (government has total control of everyone lives). He was also sexist and homophobic & like most communists he believed in equal wages no matter what job. He also believed in collectivisation (which is when the peasants are forced to harvest the land for the good of the state).
Joseph Stalin became the Soviet leader through a process. He was given his initial power by Lenin at his death. However, Lenin wanted Leon Trotsky to rule the Soviet Union. St…alin hid this fact. He then allied other leaders and isolated his main enemy, Leon Trotsky. He eventually succeeded in having Trotsky expelled from the party (and later the entire country), He then repeated the process to eliminate all threats until he was made the absolute ruller of the Soviet Union.
Mikhail Gorbachev was a key player in the eventual deconstruction of communism.
Because, I dont know and dont care
He was a christian but he lost faith.
Stalin titled himself "Generalissimus" but was not a general in the regular army. He never served in the army whether it was under the Tsar or the Soviets, so he never rose to… general through the ranks the way real generals did.
Mikhael Gorbachev then after that Boris Yeltsin
Communism was the type of government. The power was very high because Russia was one of two countries (the other being the united states) who survived world war 2 without extr…eme damages and dept. Under Stalin, his government did not fall until he died and someone eltse was the ruler of the communist nation.
In USSR in WW2
Not necessarily the execution of them but certainly responsible for their deaths.
