I'll use the example I already brought up, only this time I'll be specific:
Stalin "purges" his leaders whom he suspects may not be loyal to him.
Christians say that political leaders shouldn't murder their opposition. If we
do, you can call us hypocrites. But Stalin was an atheist. What would YOU have
said to Stalin that could be a basis for "correcting" his behavior?
