Transcript Boukharin-Rykov-Stalin coalition against Zinoviev-Kamenev. The coalition won easily. In the third phase of the battle, Rykov and Stalin vanquished Boukharin. In 1928, Stalin got rid of Rykov and Tomsky, his last rivals. The file had conquered. Macchiavelli did not know the use of the modern file. Other times, another technique. In 1936 and 1937 came the trial and executions of the old Bolshevik leaders. The individual whose "hand does not tremble" decided on the physical destruction of his old competitors. Stalin's intelligence is not imaginative. It is practical. No idea applied by him is his own. He borrows ideas and doctrines from the persons around him. But he applies them with the brutality, with the drunken ardor of an absolute master in whom the exercise of power merely increases the need of commanding. Without pity, he tries out his borrowed conceptions on the entire people. He stops only when his experiments risk toppling over the pyramid of which he is the peak. He has boasted, as of a virtue, of his readiness to sacrifice one or several generations to what he calls the construction of socialism. In cold blood, he verifies the conceptions that have won his attention, by experimenting on the Russian people, in the manner of a scientist performing vivisectionary experiments in his laboratory. Many villages of peasants have been deported to concentration camps for showing resistance to his "collectivization". The term "red pope" best describes the head of the new Russian absolutism. Stalin is, in fact, the autocratic head of a new religion, which has its faithful, its sincere devotees, its fanatics and servants all over the world. He is the director of a strategy that has its soldiers and corporals everywhere on the globe. Many persons in various countries show him devotion and obedience that borders on idolatry. He has his artists, publicists, chroniclers and propagandists. His personal power is incomparably solid. He continues to employ the method that has served him so well. He is very careful about his immediate entourage. And he is very jealous about his "reputation". A god cannot remain a god if he does not receive constant praise. As soon as Stalin issues a slogan, thousands of newspapers, orators, teachers, artists immediately pick it up and repeat it all at once. As soon as he has delivered a speech, the entire country comments on it, young people in the schools and universities, the entire youth, learn it by heart. Professors of philosophy make of it the subject of their courses. Journalists take it as the topic of their leading articles. Writers and artists go through contortions to find in it pearls of eloquence and style, to discover in it most unexpected virtues, the profundity of genius and the most splendid literary jewels. Linguistic institutes study the technique of Stalinian language. The people around him imitate his style, his voice, his gestures, his tastes. When he decided to introduce the use of rabbit meat in Russia, to make up for the destruction of cattle, the restaurants and lunchrooms began serving the non-existent rabbit meat; peasants had to raise rabbits; 57
