The Real Life Big Brother that brought fear, suspicion, and distrust to the lives of 200 million people.

A man who believed you should kill your enemies, but kill your friends first.

He demanded suppression, repression, execution, deportation, and propaganda on an empiric scale.

A man so vain that showing a picture of him with his blemishes could put you on his list of enemies.

He sent squads to ice-axe murder a rival.

His final activity as leader was to plan another glorious show-trial terror campaign against, get ready for it, Jewish doctors.
