omment about paragraph below:
Stalin had the power and the support of his people but his growing paranoia and the ability to trust those around lead him to eliminate anyone that he deemed a threat. Lenin and Marx beliefs were based on communism which would have lead the country to greatness but on the backs of others with few people owning the majority of productions. The citizens would have worked hard for next to nothing while the country prospered. Stalin decided not to follow this template and there for putting an end to the gain of international power in Russia.
