List of Countries that Still Have Communism
What Connects the Communist Regimes?
Its origin point is the instructions of the German state theorists Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) as well as the Soviet founder Lenin (1870-1924). The aim of communism is truly the classless society, in which all personalities contribute to the community ownership and live from it.
Who has accomplished the vision of Marx, Engels and Lenin?
None. While on the other hand, Vietnam and China have long been supporting private ownership and leadership, there are more and more millionaires, and the gap between wealthy and poor is growing. Everywhere corruption is flourishing; in Cuba and Laos, the state is ailing. North Korea depends upon military power and nuclear weapons, while the people are dying.
What are the Countries’ Best Achievements?
Cuba praises its health and education, China the successes of its “socialist market economy” and the unity of the vast country. According to Vietnam’s communists, the union of the north and the south after the labor wars among colonial leaders and Americans, the North Korea desires to surprise its citizens with military power. Laos issues peace and rebuilding after the Americans bombed the country in the Vietnam War as a flight of Vietnamese communists.
Wobble the Regime?
None of the countries supports freedom of expression. Protesters are killed everywhere. But revolutions are not in sight. Laos is sparsely populated, most people live in the country settled by politics. Several Cubans have been retreating for years, but are now hoping for an opening through the approach to the US. North Korea intimidates its citizens with deterrents and labor camps. Vietnam, and China depend on growth, which gives various people the prospect of material prosperity and holds the disappointment.
Do Communist parties play an important role elsewhere?
Not really. In the former Soviet republics there are Communist parties or their successors, but they have little political influence. In Russia, the Communists are still the second-largest faction, but have no prospect of government formation in the foreseeable future. In Moldova, the neighboring country of Romania, the Communists have been in opposition since 2009. In Ukraine, a prosecution against the Communist Party has been underway since 2014. In the Himalayan state of Nepal, the head of the government is, by name, Communist, but it supports a multi-party system.
