    and more overestimation of their control of their base?

    Seems plausible. While Hitler and Stalin had enough power to convince their minion to shoot their own neighbors in the head, if they had ordered their soldiers to treat Jews and kulaks with respect several years into their reign they would have been drug out of their beds and tortured to death in the streets for betraying the cause. Hatred and resentment is funny like that.
