TRUTH !!
Over his years at the Seminary, Stalin lost interest in many of his studies
and his grades began to drop. He grew his hair long in an act of rebellion
against the school's rules. Seminary records contain complaints that he
declared himself an atheist, chatted in class, was late for meals, and
refused to doff his hat to monks.
He was repeatedly confined to a cell for his rebellious behavior. He had
joined a forbidden book club, the Cheap Library, which was active at the
school. Particularly influential was Nikolay Chernyshevsky's 1863
pro-revolutionary novel What Is To Be Done?.
Another influential text was Alexander Kazbegi's The Patricide, with
Stalin adopting the nickname "Koba" from that of the book's bandit
protagonist.
He also read Capital, the 1867 book by German sociological theorist Karl
Marx, and tried learning German so that he could read the works of Marx and
his collaborator Friedrich Engels in the language in which they were
originally written. He had soon devoted himself to Marxism, the
socio-political theory that Marx and Engels had developed. Marxism
provided him with a new way of interpreting the world.
