It was said that Stalin, while dying, was
   speaking to his heir apparent, and told him
   that the way you run a country is simple.
   Stalin took hold of a bird in his hand and
   began to pluck all the feathers out of the
   bird. Once the bird was featherless, Stalin
   relinquished his grip from the bird. The bird
   remained in his hand. Stalin then informed

   country. You force the people into needing
   you to survive.
