A list of countries where Communism HAS been tried.
Updated: Aug 22, 2021
It's true when people online and in colleges and universities in the west say that "Communism has never been tried". They are right of course, Communism, which is based on Marx's Communist manifesto, has never been tried. Except in Russia, China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, Vietnam, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Mongolia, Yemen, Czech Republic, Germany (East), Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Rep. of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia, Angola, Benin, Dem Rep. of Congo, Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea and Mozambique. Other than those few times, Communism has NEVER been tried, and every time it was tried in any of those countries, it failed, miserably, and created an insane bloodthirsty dictatorship that tortured, gulaged, killed, stole fro and staved its own people.
The gross number that is estimated for the totality of people who were murdered, starved or just died thanks to Communism being implemented in their country, is around 100 million people. The most disastrously effected country by Communism was the People's Republic of China, where under Mao Zedong some 45 – 60 million people were starved to death and murdered. In the USSR, under Lenin and later Stalin, at least 50 million people were starved and murdered. In Cambodia, under Pol Pot, one quarter of the whole population (some 2 million people) was starved and murdered. In other countries like in Cuba and North Korea, the Communist dictators mainly used their absolutist power to accumulate huge personal wealth, while the local population was reduced to starving.
Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot.
But all of this history and facts won't deter people, mainly young impressianble people online and in western university campuses who never been to a Communist country in their lives, to say that Communism has never been tried, and if it's tried just one more time it will definitely work this time.
