Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin (born Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili; 18 December 1878 – 5 March 1953) was the Premier of the Soviet Union from 6 May 1941 to 5 March 1953.
His 133rd birthday was on December 18th. Now seems a good time to remember this stellar collectivist. The Occupiers of Wall Street can’t seem to get enough of the whole collectivist messaging. They seem to be unaware of the dangers of the government controlling every aspect of peoples’ lives. Stalin needs to be on their reading list.
