Stalin. Part 2: Furious Koba

In the conditions of the emerging social revolution in Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century, despite the dangers of an illegal position, the risk of arrest and exile, Soso chooses the path of a professional revolutionary, the only way of survival in new, still emerging conditions, in a new, still emerging flock.

Part 1

1. Risk for survival

Capitalism in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century meant only one thing - a social revolution. The olfactory Joseph Dzhugashvili knew this. That is why, despite the dangers of an illegal position, the risk of arrest and exile, Soso chooses the path of a professional revolutionary, the only way to survive in new, still emerging conditions, in a new, still emerging flock.

Wherever Koba appears (“frantic,” as he began to call himself in order to merge with a group of frantic ones), living conditions become somewhat better, or he leaves an unsuitable refuge for survival. In the Kutaisi prison, Dzhugashvili is petitioning the prison administration to provide prisoners with the opportunity to wash and sleep on bunks rather than on the floor. After the refusal, Koba organizes such disturbances in the cells that it is easier for the administration to make concessions. The requirements are met. Koba is transported to Siberia.


It is very cold in the village of Novoudinskoye, 120 versts from the nearest railway station. There is nowhere to complain. All that remained was to run. Returning to Tiflis, Soso quickly realizes that it is too dangerous here, many of his comrades are arrested, and he is suspected of collaborating with the secret police. Koba remains alone, his life hanging by a thread. Studies (for example, A. G. Dugin and A. I. Fursova) have shown that Stalin's cooperation with the secret police is a fiction of unscrupulous historians and producers of yellow "historical" prose who are greedy for cheap popularity. It systematically becomes clear that olfactory Stalin could not cooperate with the doomed, he took the risk of anti-government activities for only one reason: it was possible to survive in the impending revolutionary storm only on the side of the victors.

For the olfactor, the flock is the guarantor of survival. It was necessary to urgently find a suitable one and give her a chance to survive with herself. Joseph turns to the head of the Caucasian Union of the RSDLP M. G. Tskhakaya with a request to give him a task. The young man was asked to express his thoughts in writing. This is how the first serious article by 24-year-old JV Stalin, "How Social Democracy Understands the National Question", is published. I liked the article, the author began to confidently climb the career ladder. There was also a benefit from Koba for the flock: party work in the region intensified, a printing house started working.

Meanwhile, events in Russia are taking an increasingly bloody turn. The tension between the politically obsolete state and the new altruistic intelligentsia revealed an insane imbalance in the sound, expressed in a new wave of terror. The Social Revolutionaries took over the baton of the Narodnaya Volya. The Minister of Public Education A. P. Bogolepov, the Ministers of the Interior D. S. Sipyagin and V. K. Pleve were killed. Peasants smash noble estates. Power and society are opposed in the absolute of mutual hatred. On a bloody Sunday, January 9, 1905, the last, still glowing faith in a good tsar was shot. Nikolay became Bloody. People in the villages defecated on the icons of the Wonderworker.

2. "Not without Stalin"

Stalin at this time in Tiflis, Baku, Kutaisi, Gori. He is busy with party affairs, the main of which is the cessation of the Armenian-Tatar clashes. The police cannot take Koba. He is everywhere and nowhere. What Trotsky called "the general dullness of physical and moral appearance" helps Dzhugashvili a lot in his illegal work. “Not getting carried away among those who are carried away and not igniting among the flammable, but also rapidly cooling” [1], Joseph is invariably successful in performing the most tricky tasks.

With the participation of young Stalin, combat squads are formed in the Caucasus, the party fund is replenished, Iosif Dzhugashvili organizes the most audacious "exes", conducts intelligence and counterintelligence, participates in the elimination of provocateurs and the distribution of party funds, coordinates the activities of party bodies. There is no evidence of Stalin's direct participation in the "expropriations", but some of his contemporaries are sure that Dzhugashvili was involved in the most famous actions, if not directly, then as the main organizer.


Menshevik Yu. O. Martov asserted that the high-profile robbery of 1907 of the Tiflis branch of the State Bank "was not without Stalin." The direct executor of this work was the famous Kamo, an associate and fellow countryman of Stalin. Phaetons of the Treasury from 250 thousand rubles. were bombarded and shot. Five people were killed, twenty were wounded, of which 16 were bystanders. None of the criminals were arrested. Crimes orchestrated by the olfactory advisor are rarely solved. There are performers or no one. The olfactory person himself never. He wasn't even there.

3. Like the hell out of a snuff box

The impression of some researchers that Stalin arose literally out of nowhere in the 1917 revolution is deceptive, although fully explainable by the properties of the olfactory psychic. Returning from exile on the eve of October, Stalin quickly took his place in the party structure, as if Siberia had not been four years old. For the olfactory person, time flows differently, not to say, does not flow at all. The unmistakable instinct brings the bearer of the olfactory vector to the desired point of the space-time continuum, from where, for one reason or another, he "dropped out", he does not need to catch up, he does not miss anything.

Another phenomenon of Stalin at that time is quite explainable - invisibility. Entering high political bodies, Stalin was known only to a narrow circle of people, in the then political arena "he was nothing more than a gray, dim spot" [2]. Against the background of others - bright, distinctive, brilliant orators (Trotsky, Bukharin, Plekhanov, Axelrod, Dan, Martov and, of course, Lenin), the melancholic and indistinctly speaking representative of the national landmarks Stalin was clearly losing.

It was unsafe to be in the crowd, the speakers were not only listened to with enthusiasm, they were sometimes beaten. This did not correspond to the olfactory concept of preserving oneself, which is why in the future Stalin preferred to communicate with the people through the apparatus of party functionaries created by him, articles and directives. This is where Latin clarity and black-and-white categorization of the future "father of nations" reigned. “We must work, not hold meetings,” Stalin loved to repeat. Nevertheless, there were many meetings in 1917. Video recordings of the performances of fiery revolutionaries have survived to this day.



How Stalin spoke is clearly seen in his speech on Lenin's death.

Time will pass, and Stalin's quiet, measured speech, consisting of simple and intelligible guidelines for action, will only be interrupted by bursts of stormy and prolonged applause, turning into a standing ovation.

Speech November 7, 1941

In the meantime, a dull monotonous voice with a Georgian accent was completely lost against the background of the unforgettable speeches of Lenin and Trotsky, instantly captivating the audience with the irresistible magnetism of urethral recoil and soulful oral speech. Stalin's speeches did not contain the aphoristic pathos of the intellectual Plekhanov, the subtle humor of Bukharin, the "favorite of the revolution," the energy of Martov, or the temperament of Axelrod. And yet, in the speeches of general survival, the olfactory "something" instantly turned into a short and capacious oral slogan - a meaning understandable to everyone. When a tough need arises to preserve the integrity of the state and the survival of the people, people will go to death with the name of Stalin. But this is still far away. So far, the inconspicuous Joseph Dzhugashvili is confidently climbing the party ladder. His involvement in certain events is always in doubt, especially for thosewho quite naturally fears and hates the cunning and insidious Koba.
