I disagree. I consider myself both literate and principled. Stalin and his legacy have been subjected to exactly the same sort of systematic campaign of vilification as Assange has. The opening up of the Soviet archives since 1990 - ironically enough - has actually demonstrated this.
Your knee-jerk “Stalin was a mass-murderer” stance is a product of the same Western propaganda liberal certainty machine that has latterly given us “Julian is a rapist”. We shouldn’t fall for it.
