Fact of the Day: Stalin Cult

While certainly not the first person in history to use the tactic, but the Soviet Union created a cult of personality for Joseph Stalin to increase his popularity and make his rule stronger. The Soviet propaganda had Stalin be "all knowing" and "all powerful" and virtually god-like.

When I was in Warsaw this past summer, the most prominent building we saw downtown was the Palace of Culture and Science, originally named for and dedicated to Joseph Stalin. His name was later revoked and removed from the building. The building is huge. I could even see it when we were landing at the Warsaw airport.

Lenin didn't approve of Stalin and would never have let him come to power if he'd been alive to stop it.
