    Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar

    The book claims Stalin only had two bodyguards the whole time he was leader of the USSR. He used to like to take random walks around Moscow. The book claims the Politburo had to get him to stop doing that. This book is not from a left wing source. It was written by a bourgeois historian.

    Compare that to the President of the United States who has a whole agency with a multi billion dollar budget assigned to protect him. The POTUS is pretty much protected by a small army and rides around in a limo/tank. What do you think accounts for the difference?

    Stalin could walk anywhere because of the ubiquitous NKVD.

    Do you think the vast majority of the Soviet population hated and feared the "brutal dictator" Stalin? Was it actually more privileged and far less numerous elements of the population that felt that way? Maybe that is why he didn't need an army of bodyguards like the POTUS.

    It is funny how social class, propaganda and ideology can warp our perception of things like a funhouse mirror.
