The most important thing to remember, is that the only alternative to communism is capitalism. This is a scientific fact.
The r*dditor jumped out 💅
John Kenneth Galbraith
"The big failing with communism is that it ideologically assumes tyranny to be foreign. It theorizes that once we overthrow capitalism, it will all be smooth sailing. But the reality is that oppression has been a feature of humanity since before civilization, and in every large communist society people still got there way into positions of power and exploited that power for their own personal gain and at the expense of others. A safeguard against this potential to gain power and exploit others would be necessary for communism to succeed in realizing its stated goal of ending oppression."
I heard this idea from Lily Orchard (who I only mention now because half the people who've heard of her would stop reading once I put her name.)
Regardless, this was a good quiz!
Also worth considering that maybe the historical failure of communist states might have something to do with the most powerful nations in history allied against them.
I only got 4. I didn't know Marx wrote book with someone else. I guess Marxism sounded better than Friedrichism or Engelsism.
I couldn't think of who was communist in Americas, I typed California, as Venezuela and Argentina didn't work, I totally forgot about Caribbean, and its Cuba of course.
Granted there are lots of socialist people here, but they rarely get elected into office. Most of Europe is closer to communism than we are.
