  • It was visionary and inspiring in it's own way. Of course it's only with an ideology that a superpower can emerge. When this particular ideology vanished, the greatness of the USSR disappeared. If only they could have avoided the evil of atheism. After all, we see now the greatness of God in Mother Russia.

  • It's going to be beautiful and violent one day in America when cities are shut down and 18 wheelers, Box Trucks and Buses block the roads and the politicians and bureaucrats hang from the lamppost and bridges.

  • What hypocrisy! The soldiers shoot at people then when they see they can do nothing they join the crowds and their crime is forgotten!

  • Human beings, by nature, want hope, they want a "heaven". If they don't believe in GOD's heaven, they believe they can make one on Earth.

  • "In the country it has all begun" (in Russia??) – NO – this crap started in GERMANY in the head of Mr. Karl Marx, than taken over by the Critical Theory and brought to USA (Columbia Univ), etc. Today marxism is nourished in way too many universities of USA and EU (Altiero Spinelli, his Manifesto of Ventotene – learn and repel that). Learn about it, track it and fight it!
    Fight today's marxism crawling in with a face of progressivism, political correctness, repressive tolerance and similar absurd of anti-culture. I'ts back!

  • The sad thing is that the communist of today denies what happened. Communist deniers are just like Holocaust deniers-LIERS!!

  • Yet another diatribe, void of serious analysis. What do you get from this constant repetition? Hasn't capitalism destroyed people too?

    The communist manifesto was in fact written before the Soviet Union, Lenin and Mao, and Marx is more prescient today than ever, as capitalism brings us ever closer to species extinction – step outside of your echo chamber

  • Then Russia ended up with the drunken bum, Yeltsin and like all drunkards he had his pockets picked by others. He turned a super power into a super joke and reached a level of incompetence that could not be matched even if he had tried!!!!!!

  • "When the will of the people is stronger than the power of the State then something is wrong."
    No, something is right.

  • All culture's violent low life dirt bags go socialist/communist to try to live off of & kyll off others. Like shyster jeuws & dog jihad mus-lims.
    They are expendable to the anti-God Jesuit/Zionist Masonic Globalist Bankers that created and control socialism/Zionist Jeuw Bolshevik Communism :.

  • People would always want to be slaves not understanding that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely so therefore no matter what system you put in you always get people who are gravitate towards the hierarchy of the system because they want to rule and dominate people if you understand that men have this thing in them that they want to control and dominate people then you will understand that individual freedom is more important than the collective so therefore when you are forced to do something and your heart is not not into it it is not genuine where you're forced to do something you don't want to do it is not genuine we are forced to work a job when you don't want to work it is not genuine always remember power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely if y'all really understood the Bill of Rights and really had the truth of the American Revolutionary award understood the difference between slavery and freedom then you will understand there's no matter what system you put put in people with bad intentions always gravitate towards to top

    Communism is death. If you want to use fake reality and believe otherwise, go ahead, it's your mind and life to waste.

  • Communism has failed unless you think China is communist which it is not. the next upheaval will be when capitalism in its current uncontrolled form hits the buffers, and the greedy middle class liberals see their world come crashing down. Not a question of if, just when. that's why Brexit scares them it's the first part in a protracted end to their comfy little lives arrogantly looking down on others with their superiority complex.

  • The idea of state is doing every thing for the citizen. and people have to obey is a complete failure. human's will nerve be a robot's.

  • I often wonder if their would have been a benevolent communism….if that would have worked….giving people more personal freedom, no cult of personality, no corruption…..I think a lot of poor people today would like affordable housing, "free" health care, "free education", and a secure job…..and not see managers earning ten times what an ordinary worker gets…..but unfortunately human nature being what it is……there will always be a class divide, corruption will always take place, and people are so brainwashed by a consumer society today……sadly it would never work…….

  • humm like the last 8 years under o'banana!! all they said was it was great and getting better yet retail and manufacturing sucks!!

    we shall see if it improves!!!

  • It was the western capitalists that destroyed the economies of these Communist countries in the first place! and they fooled the people by capitalistic propaganda! now Russia and the Eastern European countries are worse of then during the worst time under Communism, even the East Germans say they preffer to live under Communism. Reminds me of Lybia. People there had good lives under Gaddafis rule then they cried for democracy now their country is destroyed. Its like the saying be carefull what you wish for. 🙂

  • I don't understand why people always equal Communism with Evil? just because USSR committed some horrible crimes against people, doesn't mean Communism told them to. and why does everyone always looking at the negatives?

    Facts Russia the most underdeveloped country in the world, Has Became a Super power under Communist ideology
    Fact USSR played the biggest role in saving Europe from Nazi germany
    Fact USSR was the a champion of Women Rights
    Fact USSR had almost 0 unemployment (for those who think Communism is for lazy people)
    Fact USSR had some of the most celebrated scientists and Intellectuals in the world
    Fact USSR had free Healthcare and Education for all
    Fact USSR was the first to send a man to space
    Fact in USSR you did not have to have a rich sponsor to get in to government,
    and the saddest Fact, after all the miss fortunes that modern Russia brought upon their people, horrible poverty in 1990s most of the people who lived trough Communism want to go back, to the Soviet lifestyle

    And many more achievements under Communist regime, But Russia was a 3rd world country before the Communist revolution, people where illiterate slaves. imagine what Communism could achieve in a developed country like UK or US, People would work for the sake of Men and not profits, Innovations will be invested in to depending on their need and not popularity, The world would help the poor in needy, in providing honest work, housing, and healthcare, elderly would enjoy stress free pension, people will work together for the common good for all men, and not just for their personal gain or Ego… there would be no corporate interest, no inequality, People will choose their career depending on their passion and not depending on the salary. many say Communism means no incentive to strive… there is incentive when i go to work, i work because i love my job, and not because it makes me money, I'm lucky but allot of people are not, they deserve what i have!

    Sure USSR had its crazy moments, like Stalin, or Mao, but so did all of our countries, Germany had Hitler, Brits colonised the whole world, US killed almost all natives of the americas… there was evil in all our histories, but we need to learn from the achievements not from shortcomings

    Humanity is about Love, and compassion, Communism is about equality, between men, women, black men, white…. its about sharing, sharing the resources that our planet gave us between all our brothers and sisters. Capitalism is about living for yourself, about profits and gains, no mater how many people you have to stab in a back and how many people have to suffer for your perfect american dream life… i chose the world of love… I am a wealthy person, but i would give away all of it, to see all people caring for each other

  • Russia represented the last vestige of freedom in the European world, and they were completely rotted out from within. The fall of the Soviet system was the final vestige of human rights coming to an end. Worldwide exploitation is what we all have to look foreword too!!!

    This documentary is a giant pile of propagandist bullshit!!!

    "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that communism doesnt/cant work"

  • What a SHAME the young people of America—those people voting for Bernie Sanders and cheering him on—don't take six hours of their time and WATCH this documentary. A WEALTH of information is available on YouTube on the history of Communism—from the birth of Karl Marx to the fall of the Berlin Wall—-and it's FREE! Why would ANYBODY want to embrace Communism and her little sister Socialism??
