Fact of the Day: Stalin Behavior

While Joseph Stalin's father was well known to have severely beaten the future Soviet dictator as a child, his mother also used harsh physical punishment as well. Despite his cold nature as a ruler, Stalin (according to his mother) was a very sensitive child. After he got into power, he asked his mother why did she beat him so hard. His mother told him that is was the reason he "turned out so well".

There is a big difference between discipline and abuse, this was definitely the latter.

PS On a lighter note, Poop Café serves their desserts/ice creams in toilet-themed dishes and cups!:D

So this means one should feel sorry for the psychopathic, serial killing, paranoid dictator??

I'd question that he turned out well. He was responsible for killing more people than Hitler, and mostly his own people.

So far as the meaningless pursuit of power at any cost is concerned, he turned out very well.
