Could you talk more about the mass killings that occurred under Stalin?

I enjoyed your discussion about the 100th Anniversary of the Soviet Revolution. However, one thing that was conspicuously absent was any discussion of what my conservative/libertarian friends always mention: mass killings and oppression. Sure, you said words like "human rights" a few times, but I wish you would have more directly and explicitly addressed the history of Oppression in the Soviet Union. I'm a socialist, I'm not a right-winger baiting you with the, "Stalin was a killer!" line. I just wish (and expected) you would have addressed the killings in particular, so I am more informed when these admittedly horrendous topics of analysis are brought up in conjunction with the economics of the Soviet Revolution. Thanks, I love your work!
