The people under Stalin didn't support him, which is why he had to kill so many people to stay in power.  Yes in the West the propaganda is quite efficacious, as I said.

And Stalin? I don't recall the name of the democracy in which he came to
power. But I do recall that he remained in power, and very successfully
harnessed the power of propaganda both at home and among some extremely
intelligent, well educated people in the western democracies,  until his
apparently natural death some, what, 30 years later? ;-)
