Re: What is wrong with communism?
There were bad parts... but there were good parts to it as well.
I take as example one of the biggest communist countries besides Russia. My country. Romania.
People did dislike the system at that time, but when they got to this system, fairly said it was better than.
Yes, food was rationalized, you had to stay in line for a bread, a bottle of milk or something like this, but never, anyone had the problem of not getting any. I haven't heard one person telling me in the communist days of Ceausescu they died of hunger.
Now, after the whole "democracy" system came, everyone got their liberty. But where this liberty took us?
From the no. 1 granary of Europe which Romania was at that time, now is procuring grains from other countries because the whole system of agriculture fell.
From the country with the most owners, we got to the country with the most people losing their home and have to live in rent.
From the country that took you off the streets and put you in a manufacture or something, whatever, gave you a job, we got to the country where you can barely find a job.
Now you find families literally starving, thing that never happened with communism.
We had the best irrigation system, now we don't have any.
All that freedom that was given to us, or so they say, it was turned into corruption and politicians turned this prosperous country into ashes.
Few actually admit that it was better on those times and that actually killing Ceausescu was a coup-d'etat a la Uchiha, lol, only that they didn't kill everyone.
Few actually knew about this, because the competitive politicians made it look like Ceausescu was the bad guy because he keeps everyone in a leash.
Thing that if you ask me and many others, yes it was bad up to a certain point, but necessary. This country needed something like this.
Now that we have leaders like these, this country has rotten and it's in big trouble.
So yes, for Romania communism was better and every normal people that lived on that time will tell you that.
Of course, there were those who fought in '89 but they fought for an ideal that wasn't going to be accomplished later on.
Those poeple who fought and died in December '89 died for nothing, like Ceausescu died as well, because the games were made by the "clever boys" from 89 - 90 till today and we got to the point that we will be like some Brasilian cities (watch Ciudad de Deus - City of God and you'll understand it = this is what Romania is turning in).
