7 main secrets of Stalin
December 21, 1879, Joseph Stalin was born. For world and Russian history, Stalin is the key figure about which the spears break. About Stalin argue and talk constantly. Another thing is whether it brings us closer to an understanding of his personality.
Date of Birth
The birth date of Joseph Stalin is already a controversial point in his biography. The choice is between two dates: December 21, 1879 and December 18, 1878. The second date is indicated by an extract from the metric book of the Gori Assumption Cathedral Church, which refers to the birth of the parents of Vissarion Ivanovich Dzhugashvili and his wife Ekaterina Georgievna (maiden name - Geladze) son Joseph.
The replacement by Stalin of the true date of his birth can be explained both by pragmatic and esoteric reasons. On the pragmatic side, the change in the year of birth was related to the fact that it was very inappropriate to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the “leader” in 1928: the year was incredibly difficult and managed to contain everything from the expulsion of Trotsky to peasant revolts. But the change of birthday is nothing but esoteric, can not be explained.There is a version that Gurdjieff influenced the date of his birth with Stalin, with whom Stalin studied at the same seminary. Rectifying the date allowed Stalin to take and hold power.
Why - Stalin?
For more than half a century, our country has been ruled by people under pseudonyms. It can be assumed that this is due to the fact that Soviet leaders came out of underground cells and royal servitude, but if you start to figure it out, it turns out that the reasons for changing the name of each of the revolutionaries were their own. What are the reasons for the change of name were Joseph Dzhugashvili?
For all his life, Stalin had three dozen pseudonyms. It is significant that Joseph Vissarionovich did not make secrets from his last name. Who remembers Apfelbaum, Rosenfeld and Wallach (Zinoviev, Kamenev, Litvinov)? But Ulyanov-Lenin and Dzhugashvili-Stalin - at the hearing. Stalin chose a pseudonym quite consciously. According to William Pokhlebkin, who devoted the work of the “Great Pseudonym” to this issue, several factors coincided when choosing a pseudonym. The real source when choosing a pseudonym was the name of a liberal journalist, initially close to the populists, and then to the Social Revolutionaries Evgeny Stefanovich Stalin,one of the prominent Russian professional publishers of periodicals in the provinces and the Russian-language translator of the poem Sh. Rustaveli - “The Knight in Tiger's Skin”. Stalin loved this poem very much.
What did you read?
Contrary to the popular notion that Stalin was almost the simplest of the entire revolutionary cohort, “from the plow”, he was highly educated. Do not forget about his studies at the seminary. Stalin could read Plato in the original, and this already says a lot. He had a huge library. He looked through most of his books, and read many carefully. Some - read several times. Stalin read books, usually with a pencil, and most often with a few colored pencils. Numerous notes, underscores, phrases, comments in the margins eloquently show that Stalin read the literature with great attention, and the image of “his boyfriend” was only for the proletariat.
Stalin and Matrona
There is a legend that on the eve of the battle for Moscow in 1941, Joseph Stalin secretly visited the blessed Matron. Allegedly, the old lady blessed the head of the country, and soon the Germans were driven away from Moscow.Interestingly, this meeting is captured in the stamps of several icons of the holy Matrona.
Stalin and oil
One of the most controversial issues concerning the personality of Stalin and his successful political career is his relationship with the oil tycoons and, in particular, with the Rockefellers and Standart oil. The fact that oil companies were among the “customers” of the Russian revolution is no longer a secret behind seven seals, but the role of Stalin in organizing riots in Baku, when the Rothschild oil rigs were deliberately burned, is still not clear. The theme of the relationship between Stalin and the Rockefellers is an endless field for conspiracy theories, but the fact that Stalin depended on Western money until a certain time was unequivocal.
At the suggestion of Stalin, the five-pointed star became the official symbol of the USSR. Stalin knew that the pentagram has a very powerful energy potential and is one of the most powerful symbols. The swastika could also become a symbol of the USSR, the cult of which was very strong in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century. The swastika was depicted on the “Kerenks”, the swastika was painted on the wall of the Ipatiev House by the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna before being shot, but by the sole decision of Trotsky, the Bolsheviks stopped on a five-pointed star.The history of the 20th century will show that the “star” is stronger than the “swastika” ... The stars began to shine over the Kremlin, replacing the two-headed eagles, and the state’s economic activity was determined by five-year periods.
Stalin perfectly understood his significance. Once he said: “I know that after my death a heap of garbage will be put on my grave, but the wind of history will mercilessly dispel it!”. Charles de Gaulle said beautifully about Stalin: “Stalin is not a thing of the past. Stalin dissolved in the future. ”
