Most of us has spend plenty to time slandering communism and crusading against it.

But at the end of day, communism has elevated millions of people from poverty, provided a hedge for countries who were bullied by the western governments, developed nuclear weapons and never used them, literally won the space race, made immense personal sacrifice for others, and they went through suffering, pain and tragedy that a human mind can hardly tolerate. 

Their art had so much depth since engrained in their in souls were desperately longing for expression and love they deserved but couldn't get due to their circumstances. 

They are people too who were stuck with the decisions made by a few assholes and that doesn't make them our enemy.

Here you can post anything you find intriguing or positive about the great powers of the East and the radical transformation they have made.

Russia has paraded a 3,000-tonne nuclear submarine "K3 Leninisky" nicknamed The Whale through the streets of Russia. This gigantic submarine, measures about 352ft - roughly the length of a football pitch - made its way through Kronstadt, close to St Petersburg, yesterday. This will be turned into a relic and kept in a museum. And i have a strong belief that this is the same submarine that Russia deployed in the Indian Ocean during 1971 war.

U.S supported Pakistan by sending an aircraft carrier in the Indian Ocean to intimidate India. Russian nuclear submarine showed up in the Indian Ocean to support India. A simple story of "showing up for a friend”.

Most of us westerners don't realize that even during the war, Russia is still being idolised by millions of people around the world.

Most countries in Africa and Asia prefer Russia over the United States. Their cultural values are closer to Russia than to the US. Also their media tends to be neutral and not negative towards Russia.

Yup. My mother tells me that the newspapers and magazines that were in circulation in the 70s & 80s while she was in school was mostly soviet inspired magazines. Hell even there is a communist party that is ruling the state I am in. All of them drew heavy inspiration from USSR, and some of then even expect them to come back to their former glory.

For real though, Britan & US really thought that India would end up like some shithole like banana republics in South America. They tried to pull of their destabilization schemes in India although none of them quite worked. They still fund Pakistan to this day for some reason to keep India in check.

In all those testing times for India, we had to need USSR to come to our support. That sense of unity was quite necessary at the time, while the leaders of the "free world" tried to undermine our country. 

I don't know about others nations, but Soviet Union was a strong emotion in India throughout the late 20th century. Westerners are usually in a bubble of their own so I get why they wouldn't know about these things. 

Also it's not merely about cultural values per say, the US straight up bullies into submission anyone who goes against their agenda in the name of democracy and human rights. So people understood that deal with the US is as good as a deal written on water. They will turn against us in a moment's notice, while USSR had our backs and maintained relationships all along for a long time.

You need to ask the people what they think about those who lived under communism. You'll be shocked at how disgusted they are. Scientists, poets, artists, etc. have been killed for speaking truth to power. People worshiped Stalin and Lenin. Students would recite poems written for them. Those who still idolize those times are still in their delusional bubble.

I live under one, although a much more watered down version of it.

I know it's shit. I am seeing the same patterns over and over again and they are slowly collapsing just like every other socialist government did. 

The world has accepted that fact long time ago and moved on. Communism effectively died by 1991. We are merely seeing all the good that came out of it inspite of all the tragedies it caused.

Of course the tragedy part is well emphasized. You can see how Russian art is drenched in nihilism & depression. Even their architecture reflects that.

That's what communism implies. To give up the individual for the sake of the community. It drains the souls of the individuals. But it was not for nothing.

@OBEler @Sincerity  I think this topic is more appropriate in the society/politics section. Would you be willing to move it over there?

Things that made the Soviet Union great: Soviet Science, cinema, art and cultural emphasis on high culture and education. 

Things that made the Soviet Union shitty and evil: Politics, poverty, unsafety, repression and corruption.

Russian art is deep and wise. (my profile name and picture is just one little example.)

It's so heart touching when you put it in context of all they went through. What a time and what an experience it was to be a Soviet soldier in the 20th century.

Oh my bad. I thought he was responding to the OP implicating there's nothing intriguing or positive about the great powers of the East. Instead he was replying after doing what post above his said lol whoops :ph34r:
