Interestingly, I just finished reading a book on the life of Stalin and the
'kind' things he did to his people (especially the ones close to him). He
firmly believed that termination was the reward for both hard work and
dedication to the leader (I believe the survivors called them purges).

After reading Mike's post, I'm now wondering if Stalin's biography is
standard reading in the MBA programs? ;-)
