Does the disenthroneinent of Stalin signify the abandonment of the Communist goal of world revolution? Is communism beginning a metamorphosis into a respectable political enterprise? Have Khrushchev, Bulganin, and the men who rule with them and who share the odium for the crimes which they now lay upon Stalin suddenly become men of good vvill, renouncing violence and aggression? Stalin's successors would like to hear a chorus of affirmative answers to these questions, and there are many who are willing to oblige them. It is these people, drawn to the supposed idealism ol communism but repelled by the excesses of Stalin, that anti- Stalinism stretches forth to embrace. Hut it is evident, even this early, that, irrespective of the causes which may have produced il. anti-Stalinism is but a political artifice, fraudulent and more dangerous than any other produced by the Kremlin thus far. If it succeeds, history may some day replace the monuments to Stalin with more enduring monuments to human gullibility. The significance of anti-Stalinism cannot be discerned in the specific in- I Above) Soviet Premier Nikolai Bulganin presented this curled lip countenance to the camera ot luncheon at Birmingham, England, last April. Bulganin, who had been startled by the photo- flash, requested a retake which shows his face wreathed in the cherubic smile so familiar to Western audiences. ternal conditions which may have precipitated its adoption: a rivalry for power within the Kremlin, severe pressures arising from a conflict between the army and the Partv. deep rumblings in the areas incorporated forcibly into the Soviet political structure and still aspiring for a return to independence. None of these in itself, nor all together, provides a total explanation despite the appeal they have to those who are inclined to regard the slightest tremor as presaging the disintegration of the Soviet totalitarian state. An examination of anti-Stalinism must first take into account the simple truth that, while it may be aimed against the memory of Joseph Stalin. it is not aimed against his legacy. While Khrushchev may repudiate Stalin as his political ancestor, he has not repudiated Stalin's establishment of the vast Soviet Communist empire which he himself now rules. The basis of Khrushchev's power, thc basis from which he seeks to project new advances against the free world, is Stalin's Russia; and the means by which he seeks to accomplish it, are Stalin's means.
