What didn't Joseph Stalin like?
Stalin didn't like Fascists and Mensheviks along with the Jews, Ukrainians, and many, many others as he became steadily more despotic, paranoid and psychotic. His death-toll greatly exceeded that of Adolf Hitler.

Not all of them. Some, who were opponents of earlier communist regimes did, but others viewed him as a tyrant. Others thought that if he hadn't been the leader of the USSR, Wo…rld War II might not have been won and that he was a good leader. And yes, he led purges against his own people.
Joseph Stalin (Ioseb Dzhughashvili 1878-1953) was the leader of theUSSR (Russia) from 1924 to 1953. After World War 2, he wanted tospread Communism across Europe but was oppos…ed by the US and Europeduring the "Cold War". He was considered ruthless in his treatment of his politicalenemies, especially during the period in which he shared power withthe first Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin. Many were shot,imprisoned, or sent to brutal work camps. 'Stalin' is the Russian word for steel, and was the pseudonymadopted by Jughashvili (spelled variously) when he was a youngrevolutionary in Tsarist Russia. Stalin was not a Russian. He wasborn in the province of Georgia, part of the Russian Empire, andactually studied for the priesthood before being expelled becauseof his Marxist views. Entering a seminary and studying for theOrthodox priesthood was one of the few ways the son of poorpeasants could get an education in the 19th Century Russian Empire. Life of Joseph Stalin Dzhugashvili was raised by his mother because his father was analcoholic. He was expected to become a shoemaker but had greateraspirations. A smallish child, he was teased by other childrenafter smallpox left his face scarred. He began fighting and becamea street tough. He joined a Georgian independence group called"Messame Dassy", and after being expelled from the seminary, hewrote for a socialist newspaper. Stalin was imprisoned or exiledseveral more times after supporting Bolshevik guerrillas in 1905.He became an editor of the newspaper Pravda in 1912,adopting the name Stalin as a nom de plume. He was released from Siberia with prisoners conscripted for WorldWar I. After the abdication of the Tsar in 1917, Stalin, Lenin, andthe Bolsheviks seized power in the October Revolution. AfterLenin's death in 1924, Stalin, Grigori Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev ranthe USSR for a couple years until Stalin had them expelled from theCommunist Party. He allied himself with Nikolai Bukharin but soongot rid of him too. Eventually he took on dictatorial powers whenhe had eliminated all of the old Bolsheviks from the new CommunistParty and had most important Party positions filled with peopleloyal to him. His enemies and rivals were subjected to the same treatment he hadreceived from the Tsarist authorities. During World War II, hereceived concessions from the other Allies to keep the USSR in thewar. World War II established the Soviet Union as a world power,and afterward as a superpower with a large military and nuclearweapons. The control of Russia and the other republics under theCommunist party allowed Stalin and his successors to dominateEastern Europe for most of the late 20th Century. Joseph Djugashvilli. The Man of Steel, Stalin became CommunistDictator of the Soviet Union in 1924 & remained so, allpowerful until his death in 1953. He was a despot and murderedcountless millions in the Soviet Union & dependant states. Byany fair view Stalin has to be seen as the instigator of the ColdWar. Stalin personifies autocratic, totalitarian rule.
Yes, when he died, a scene similar to the death of Kim Jong Ill orMao happened where many people cried in the streets etc... Manypeople credit him with leading the Russia from… backwards to asuperpower.
He liked to skate so in world war 2 he would go out in his garden and skate around his pond when it was frozen to get bad feeling out.
Lenin did like Stalin, but was very much against Stalin ever gaining power.
Capitalism / Mercantilism are least like Stalin's ideology.
There were many factors that led people to like Stalin. The main one was probably the 'cult of personality'. This meant he could manipulate how he was seen as a leader through… images, films, poems etc( which were only allowed if they glorified him) and thus fool people into thinking he was a good leader. For example, during the time of the 1930's, he would have images of him and children, creating his idea he was the 'father of Russia'. He also used the 'cult of personality' to lead people to believe he had led them throughout the war to success in 1945. In reality, it was more likely the mistakes of the Germans and organisation of military strategies by others which had saved them. Stalin at the time of the war did not know what to do! After the war, he glorified himself even more through posters, showing him as God-like. He manipulated these kind of events to create a likeable image of himself. Also, although the gulags( labour camps) were his idea, many in the camps sent him letters asking him to save them, as they believed such a 'great leader' would never let such awful things happen. It just shows how badly the idea he was a good leader was indoctrinated in their heads through all of these things. He killed millions and cost so much dear human life, yet even at his funeral many were in tears and distraught their 'great' leader had died.
I believe Josef Stalin loved war. He was ruthless when he fought against the Germans. He was a killer of his own people. He showed little remorse or grief over his 10 million …people who were killed, but he really enjoyed seeing the Germans punished and stealing the Eastern European countries for himself. See related information about the type of ruler Josef Stalin was.
leon trotsky would be one..
a dictator he was like Hitler and would not be pleasant to meet
They didn't. They used each other. Stalin had long term plans tohave Hitler eliminate the intelligentsia of Europe as he had donein Russia. Hitler approved of all the methods… of Russian genocide that hadbeen going on for years and actually sent people to Russia to learnhow to build concentration camps. Hitler's demands of absolutemerciless cruelty from his officers actually came from the exampleof Stalin. This similitude would have resulted in a simmeringresentment in Hitler and a feeling of inferiority. Publicly admiring the Russians was bad for Hitler's politicalaspirations as well so he chose to reverse any good things he'dbeen saying them. The Ribbentrop Pact had been a ruse to getsupplies while holding the Russians at bay so that he couldconcentrate on other activities. The Russians welcomed this becausethey had only recently finalized their war with Finland (and lost)and the Japanese on the Manchurian border, (and won).
Because he became a Soviet Politician instead.
