From the Civici’s perspective Stalin’s death is the sign of an obvious contradiction within Soviet leadership: as soon as Stalin fell, the memory of him was crushed. The XX Conference of the PCUS is manipulated here to make a case for the idea that Communism and betrayal go hand in hand, and that voters must be wary of one another.
