I didn’t really know where to post this but I figured this is sub is the most general sub.

So my mom is a socc dem journalist and Recently made an article on Cuba and the current “regime” not accepting democratization by the EU. So naturally I respond with examples of disasters by free market policies and Eastern Europeans.

She also linked me a study of some sort by the civil rights watch.

If anyone could help me with any of these points I would be very thankful.

Part 2 https://lemmygrad.ml/post/7447


Here are a few:


Damn these are good articles, thx. 71% of Hungarians saying joining the EU was a bad idea, wow.


Yeah, people are starting to realize that the grass isn’t always greener now that they got to experience capitalism first hand for a few decades.


The first russian elections after the fall of the USSR are enlightening (especially since the US had to help Yeltsin to win, and it is widely agreed that he used false votes, as well as, well, buying every piece of media he could and making propaganda as much as he could with the help of the US, even so the result between him and the CCP was near). Check Yugoslavia’s dismemberment too, maybe. The Asian Crisis of 1997. Argentina’s 2001 crisis. Ha-Joon’s book on ‘kicking away the ladder’ for developing countries and on economy make a case for the fact that modern countries used not liberalism but protectionism for their development and then impeded third-world countries to take the same route (with cases such as South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and ofc Communist China actually being able to use a similar route through military dictatorships and in China, the CCP), so you might wanna check that out. As for Cuba, investigate the embargo and why they wouldn’t accept “democratisation”, Fidel talks about what actual democracy is in Cuba here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmWhTKFHET0 and why they do not want the US “democracy”. These are all just pointers haha, but hope the help. You might be referring to this survey: https://thecommunists.org/2019/07/26/news/workers-eastern-europe-former-ussr-prefer-socialism/ tho I remember there was a picture which summed it up, you can always go to the source and make the graph yourself in Word. Good luck!

Going to ask her later for it, thank you in advance.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
