I and my unit were on the 1K line looking at the guard towers when Czechoslavkia opened the border and we got orders to return to base ASAP.
There were trabis everywhere as it looked for all the world like East Germany was completely emptying out.
Somethings I'll always remember.

Yes, they are. Even back then the likes of Senator Ted Kennedy was trying to do back door deals with Moscow against the interests of the US.

Warrior, when I saw your title, For those who might have forgotten, Communism, my first thought was Kamala Harris. Scary, huh?

Yep, there's a whole generation alive now that never saw communism in practice that wants to put it in power here.

Are you serious? The soviet union was not real socialism.

Other than that there are many socialist nations today and many of them are in the 1st world. The Nordic countries are always held up as an example.

We would do well to create a solid argument against Nordic socialism.

Sweden is the perfect argument against Nordic socialism

Why do I always have to do this? frown

"Definition of socialism

1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state"

I believe the ole USSR fits the bill.

Okay then let's argue who was worse Adolf Hitler, national socialism, or Joseph Stalin, international communism.

Y'all go first.

"The differences between communism and socialism are still debated, but generally English speakers use communism to talk about the political and economic ideologies that find their origin in Karl Marx’s theory of revolutionary socialism, which advocates a proletariat overthrow of capitalist structures within a society; societal and communal ownership and governance of the means of production; and the eventual establishment of a classless society. The most well-known expression of Marx’s theories is the 20th-century Bolshevism of the U.S.S.R., in which the state, through a single authoritarian party, controlled a society’s economic and social activities with the goal of realizing Marx’s theories."

I would say Hitler.
With that out of the way Stalin was hated within the USSR but too feared to be removed. He laid the ground work for the corruption and mismanagement that the USSR became know for. Similar to crony capitalism.
