The formal language of wikipedia is weird and hectic. I need a simple but brief introduction....please.
Remove the "I want", remainder is the "peace". ~Al-Ghazali~
"This time will also pass", a dose to cure both; the excitement & the grievance. ~Ayaz~

Marx was some German dude who came up with this rad new idea called communism. He believed that a people's revolt was inevitable throughout the globe. Once this revolt happened, in order to break the continuous cycle of power shifting, the people's government would have to govern themselves under socialism, in order to train the people for the eventual abolition of government and money. This final stage, in which people would live in independent communes spread across the country, freely associating and cooperating, would be known as Communism.

Stalin is pretty simple. Him and Leon Trotsky were top officials under Lenin. After Lenin's death, Stalin came out on top as the party leader, and the proletariat dictator of the Soviet Union. He ruled the country with a fair degree of paranoia, purging officials from office who he deemed as threats. His paranoia even led him to turn on the parties highest officials, including Leon Trotsky.

He also had a napoleon complex, which is why George Orwell gives his analogy in the book "Animal Farm," the name Napoleon.

One interesting thing he did was found the third international of communists.
