For this quiz, all points shall be distributed equally among all quiz takers. Or is that socialism? Or Stalinism? Or Leninism? Or Maoism? Or aren't they all the same anyway so that we can simply equivocate?

Good idea @mwierenga. I'm also putting any enemies of this quiz in a points gulag where they will be completely stripped of points until such time as they have been rehabilitated.

North Korea was communist, but the Marxist/Leninist ideology was replaced in their constitution in the early 1970s. Today they follow Juche, which is a policy system that places extreme emphasis on military strength and the cult of personality that surrounds the Supreme Leader and the whole Kim family.

But just because it's a brutal dictatorship doesn't mean it's communist, and vice versa. Remember, communism states that all people must be equal, including head of state. Does rich Kim Jong-un and his officials look equal to the average poor North Korean.

Every communist country, especially the single-party states, wants to seem democratic. That's why they create more parties, but those always work together with the communist party. So there is no political opposition to them anyway.

According to the article, other parties must "must accept the leading role of the CPC as a condition of being allowed to exist". So I would say that de-facto it is a one-party state.

Sep 24, 2016
None of these countries are technically communist, nor were any countries ever. North Korea for example has some fascist ideals, and there is no way everyone is equal in that country, (very very few people have wealth, while everyone else is left poor). Therefore I think it is correct to exclude North Korea.

By the purest principles of Marxism, 'communist state' is an oxymoron. Once communism has been attained the state withers away. I guess we'll just have to rub along as we are until then.

No truely Capitalist state has ever existed either - in reality all economies are mixtures between free market forces and state intervention. So I don't think it is fair to say communism can't work/ hsan't worked or is incompatible with human nature. Marx and other left wing thinkers have had a huge influence on economics and politics as have Adam Smith and other free market advocates

Before 1996 Nepal was a monarchy where the king and queen held all of the power. However, the average Nepali saw no improvement in quality of life and average citizen was poor. From 1996-2006 Maoist rebels started a civil war in hopes of helping their communities. Eventually in 2006 the monarchy stepped down and the Communist party was democratically elected and has won the popular vote to this day, even though there are otherpolitical parties in Nepal.
