I don't know Ea. I guess I was thinking that the Soviet State under Stalin [Pilate] was a Faustian bargain to lift Russia out of what it had been under the Tsars, and to provide security and stability for society.

I don't mind burning bridges here by saying that maybe be I'm the only one of those who read the book who thinks this, and I am the only one to state it, but in my opinion “The Emperor has no clothes,” that the entire book is pretty much a confusing mess.
