DuringStalin’s rule over the Soviet Union, people lost everything that could havepossibly made their country a free country, including their independence andfreedom of speech. Soviet people were to read, see and listen only to what thestate and government gave them. The state completely controlled all mediasources.
Anyone who would rebel against the law and read, saw or listened toanything other than what was aloud y the propaganda was harshly punished. Laborcamps, also known as Gulags, were very well known and feared by everyone,enough for them to be deterrent.
