Via Reuters: Moscow Plans First Stalin Monument Since 1960s

In another sign of Stalin’s growing appeal, state television channels have shown a number of prime-time television shows in recent months depicting him in a positive light.

According to the story, the monuments, and the praise of Stalin, are all linked to defeating Hitler. Not only does rehabilitating a mass murder give one pause, but if the Russians are feeling the need to generate nationalistic pride by looking that far back in the past, that is concerning as well. It certainly doesn’t bespeak of a forward-looking, optimistic society.
