    J.St. corrupted Soviet communism from the low key idealism and practical policies of the post-revolutionary period (1918-28) to grand pageantry, cult of personality, and lofty, arrogant super-nationalistic (but ultimately empty) ritualisms. The above “shows” in the post-Stalin years in the U.S.S.R. are evidence of his influence over all the post-Second World War “communist” countries (and that continue in the P.R.C. and D.P.R.K. today).

      Communisn wasn’t a good idea from beginning… It was just an experement of world super rich elite to enforce such ideology on people that reduce their goods consuption requiriments to bare minimum and increase work time to maximum. Lenin just was their tool, when Stalin actually wasn’t

    • Winston says:

      Sorta like the Olympic 2012 opening show.

    Name at least one country with “non-corrupted” communism. LOL

    • m says:

      Isn’t possible. Communism at its most basic form, is nothing more then pure corruption in the guise of government.

      Not a ‘country’, that is a European construct. The North American natives were closest to true communism. Everyone worked, everyone benefited or suffered, few chiefs with little privilege, skills and abilities were taught and shared, the essence of true communal living.

      • Just sayin' says:

        Except you wouldnt want to be female, as reported by first hand observers of most North American tribes. That’s not to claim girls and women have or had fair treatment in western cultures, just sayin’.

      • No Mame says:

        American Natives?

        Yes. And almost everybody was killed, too.

      • Marie says:


        North American natives may not have had ‘ownership’ of land as we know it today but they were faarrrrr from communist. People traded with each other for goods and traveled far to do so. Read some pre-Colombus history of native american tribes, thanks

    Corruption is essentially unequal distribution of wealth. In this sense Soviet Russia was certainly less corrupt overall than most western nations.

    Ohh, I grew up watching my whole life this picture (that of fidel castro), and now unexpectedly once again. When thought that im had left behind. :S

    FIDEL try to chase me , he will haunt me forever!

    Back then, it was simply unthinkable that the USSR would simply dry up. This happens when a country overspends with no limit. A lesson that all empires forget.

    Henry Winston: the pre-cursor to the NAACP, the ADL and Al Sharpton. He was a prototype “sacrifice” character.
