Finished reading "Let History Judge, the Origins and Consequences of Stalinism" by Roy A. Medvedev. A very insteresting book written by a Soviet Historian in 1968 discussing the way Stalin's own dictatatorship created his own cult again the teaching's of Marx, Engels and Lenin.

One intersting fact that stuck out is the way Stalin changed history through literature, media and film to reflect his point of view and propaganda. Doesn't it sound very familier to how Holywood and the media distort history and the truth today to support their argument? Frightengly so!!
