I agree with what your saying, but not the terminology. Perhaps I can ask for accuracy from all members when speaking on the subject: the USSR, and the satellites it developed, were Stalinist, not communist. If you're interested in communism, read Marx.Contrarian said:There are 31 Flavors at Baskin Robbins.... but they are all ice cream...no?
Catholics and Jews have various denominations, yet they are all Catholics and Jews.
Not all Liberals or Conservatives are minted the same.
As a scholar of the ideology, you might be able to distinguish the flavors, but to we uninterested, illinformed masses... it's communism. And communism in the familiar, popular eteration has been oppressive to the very people it was geared to help and a miserable failure.
As I said earlier, please show me ONE successful eutopian communist country / government.
