      Stalin oversimplified

      Sector 888888 it’s fact checking, not hating. It is factually wrong to say that the USSR (United Soviet Socialist States) was communists and to a certain extent it is very debatable to say that they were socialists

      FireTeam Gaming no, it was state-socialist/capitalist. Communism implies abolishing classes, currency and the state, the USSR has all three and then some

      OverSimplified this is regurgitated propaganda. Why is it that each time a history USclipr or such talk about things related to the USSR they get a lot of it wrong, idk if it’s intentional or if the propaganda is still poisoning the media today but this needs to stop.

      You know Stalin and the USSR didn’t know about the a-bombs. You make it seem as if the USSR caused the Cold War which is a lot of propaganda

    American capitalism want to make the entire world as their Customer, so they can transfer their wealth to them to finance their socialist program and corporation at home such as , Military, post office, gov salary, school, health care and unemployment insurance.
    ironically, their walking dead movie is communism life. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

    Uh.. just one small thing.
    At that time, the Republic of China (Now we call it Taiwan) was representing China in the UN Security Council instead of the People's republic of China.
    So either adds the Taiwan island or just the island would be more accurate.
