    How on Earth is one supposed to answer this yes or no? It's a huge question!

    Absolutely. bad manners, if you're reading this, here's a wonderful illustration of how they mould public opinion, this is how some have gathered their data on Stalin, I suspect.

    In some of my "pall-like questions" I tried to write for fun I used "other" options. After some thinking I came to a conclusion that any pall question should contain at least three answers: 1) this 2) that 3) other. Because the very answers always impose the "world picture" of those who ask them. That's why I absolutely don't beleive in sociology.

    Вот трудный вопрос! I have to say that genocide is never justified, and so the Soviet Union ended up being a BAD thing for Russian citizens.. but we will never know what would have happened otherwise.

    True, the most dramatic and strongest period of economic growth in the history of industrialized civilization occured in Russia during Stalin's time.

    Also true, during the same time period millions were executed in the Soviet Union.

    WWII is a big question. Had it not been for the aforementioned, would Russia have been able to stop Hitler's operation Barbarossa? This has big implications for the entire planet, not just Russia. Had it not been for the economic and industrial improvements to the Russian economy due to totalitarian rule, Russia might have capitulated under the superior technology of the Wermacht.

    This question has no right answer. It is hard to say whether or not MORE would have been killed with or without the Soviet Union... etc. et al.
    I do not understand very well the best way of understanding ..

    Oh, I *like* such kind of questions.

    Approx 2 mln. years ago some ape in Africa climbed down the tree, and discovered, what while walking on lower pair of limbs, (s)he can use the upper pair of limbs to perform some useful work. What do you think: was this event good or bad?
