Yup, wrong communist.
Same era, similar end results, and each one did about as much good for their own and all other peoples.
The complete and utter annihilation of all social institutions, social identity, anything that people have to think about, talk about ... all converted by force into Communist apparatus.
And kept that way, generation after generation.
This is why Russians automatically equate anti-communism with anti-Russianism... or whatever you'd call it. Its the dominant facet, if not the only
one, in their self-image.
I am glad that Eastern Europe is different, might have something to do with the fact that there were still a few people still alive that remembered what life before communism was like there when it collapsed.
And it always will
It doesn't work.
It never will work.
