Stalin: National Socialist

A friend sends this along:

Check out this typology of contemporary Stalinism. Do the first two sound simply like left-wing and right-wing authoritarians? But how could they possibly agree? (This is another thing I don’t get. How the heck do lefties get over the fact that the Stalin of the Great Patriotic War was as rabid a nationalist as Hitler or Mussolini?)
