Socialism and the Former USSR
The Western capitalist media loves to bash on the former USSR, and they like to think that the former USSR nations are now much happier than they were under that “oppressive” socialist system. This is clearly not the case. In a new report by the Pew Research Center, more and more residents of the former USSR, from countries such as Russia, Lithuania and Ukraine, are becoming even more dissilusioned with western style democracy and market capitalism.
As you can see here, Neither capitalism nor multi-party governance is very popular in the former USSR. This report comes at a time when massive protests rock Russia, as they protest the rigged Russian Duma elections that gave another victory to the United Russia party. It would seem that the former USSR wants it socialism back. They’ve had enough of the corruption of capitalism, and the wide income and wealth disparities. Socialism and progressivism is also on the rise as younger generations reject the lies about communism and socialism that have been foisted on them so long. Maybe it’s almost time for an Easter European spring. As the capitalist world is hobbled by its own contradictions, pick up the red flag of socialism, and help build a better world for all.
