Should a Superpower Establish a Sphere of Influence?

This influence, that was felt around the world, led to many wars and possibly prevented a holocaust. It was a visible defensive action and an invisible security wall.

The soviets were on a completely different level taking over nation and using them as a defensive measure against invasion. The point of Stalin's motives are measured in right or wrong but valuable or not, Stalin saw having these spheres of influence extremely important.
