Stalin's ideas about communism: Stalin wanted to build up communism in the USSR into a strong power. He wanted to do this first rather than plan the spread of communism. This appealed to the Russians who had suffered through years of struggle and wanted to see the results of communism in their lives. Trotsky's idea was the complete opposite as he supported Karl Max's original aim of communism spreading to all the developed countries. This did not appeal to the Russians as they wanted to focus on themselves rather on the world. They wanted to see the results of communism on them not in other countries.
