Unfortunate Turnouts
Joseph Stalin and Leon Trotsky were supposed to work together to govern and help their people, it was even what Lenin wanted before his unfortunate death. Despite their partnership, they never agreed on a lot of subjects. They had become serious rivals. That's why, in the year 1927, Trotsky was exiled by Stalin.

He mostly used card stacking propaganda, he always talked about the benefits of the revolution, and ignored the heights that everyone would have to go to to get those benefits. But everyone trusted him and respected him because of his ideas, which made him receive the loyalty of the animals, until he was exiled by Napolean (Stalin)
