Bernie Sanders is not referring to “socialism as a means to Communism’ which is very different from Sanders’ position on issues. Sanders is much more like “Social Democracy” where national industries are NOT owned by the state. This is much more like Western Europe where even some of the national railroads are now owned by private industry. So Sanders is a “social democrat” and those geniuses in the old Soviet Union are socialists in the mold of Stalin (which was really just dictatorship).Socialism leads to Communism.
Bernie Sanders is no genius. The system is the same everywhere.
In my parts commies reinvented themselves as a deep state, a mafia.I'm very curious what the reality in post cold war eastern European nations is regarding the apologetic's or even existence of communist or hard line Marxist socialist parties is. What I mean is, how would the average citizen in Poland, Romania, ex-Czechoslovakia, Baltic countries etc. react or how they react to Marxism, those who deny or downplay soviet-communist crimes against humanity?
Yeah, do tell me more about it:Oh. Trust me this is far away from the truth.
Communism is actually gaining a lot of ground lately in South-East Europe. It's valid for the rest of Europe as well.
Actually, almost every party today in Europe is heavily left orientated.
I guess the situation is even worse the further East you go.
There is a new wave of Socialism flooding over Europe. It ain't going well.
