In 1956, Soviet leader Khrushchev delivered a speech denouncing Stalin’s crimes. A heckler shouted “You were his colleague, why didn’t you stop him?” Khrushchev barked back “Who said that?” Nobody moved a muscle. Seconds later, Khrushchev said “Now you know why I didn’t stop him”
A glimmer of what it feels like to live under a violent dictatorship.
(And for all the people that still do.)
