Well, yeah, I know he was Georgian, but I've still seen way too many timelines with way too many Stalins in charge.I was talking about (Caucasian) Georgia, not Russia, but fair enough.
Yes, but Korean pop culture will be so different (influenced by Chinese and Japanese sources, due to Asia hating itself less) that it can't really be accurately compared.And regarding Korean culture, will there still be an analogue to OTL's Hallyu?
As someone who isn't exactly fond of Great Man Theory (history is as much influenced by macro trends caused by people moving at large instead of just a few Great Men, at worst), I'm actually keen on Mr Stalin remaining a nobody. I mean, OTL activists became TTL politicians and vice versa.Well, yeah, I know he was Georgian, but I've still seen way too many timelines with way too many Stalins in charge.

Just don't expect any K-pop.
Father Stalin is a criminally underused idea. I actually had an idea for a TL where him and Rasputin overthrow the Czar and establish a Russian theocracy.Stalin will either be a complete nobody or the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church (since he was in seminary IOTL before becoming a communist revolutionary). I haven't decided which but I'm leaning toward the former.
Russian mafia leader Stalin? He had all the skills suitable for organized crime and his first notable action as a revolutionary was staging a bank robbery.I find Stalin to be way too overused in AH, so I'm either going to make him do nothing or put him in a situation I've never seen him in.
The trouble with that is that Frederick Douglass never escaped from slavery ITTL. Maryland began the process of gradual emancipation in 1822 (and Douglass, being under ten years old at the time, was immediately freed) and he therefore never went to Ireland. Douglass also spent most of his life living in Baltimore.You know, when Frederick Douglass escaped from slavery IOTL, he fled to Ireland where he became close friends with Daniel O’Connell. I’d imagine that would make great propaganda for American soldiers fighting in Ireland.
