Important Communism Facts Whether you're looking for information on communism or want to know more about the theory behind it, there are many important facts to know about this controversial ideology. Learn more about the One-party system, its Ideology, and the influence it has had on civil rights and politics. One-party system A one-party state is a political system in which the ruling party controls all or most aspects of government. Such a state may be authoritarian or totalitarian, depending on the circumstances. Some one-party states are governed by a single party, such as the Soviet Union. Others are the result of decolonization, where the ruling party gains the power and dominance over its people. And yet, other countries still have a royal family ruling their country. One-party states have several advantages. They can be characterized by their low level of democracy, which may be detrimental for economic growth. Moreover, they can help to suppress the opposition. They can use state power to suppress smaller parties and gerrymander the voting districts. Opposition leaders are usually prohibited from using mass media during election time and harassed or even arrested. The Communist Party of the Soviet Union is the dominant party. Ideology The concept of communism is based on equality, regardless of race, class, gender, or economic status. Its founder, Karl Marx, aimed for a society where everyone is treated equally and benefits equally from labor. The concept spread throughout Europe and North America and gained a large following among factory workers. They were frustrated by the exploitation they faced and wanted a better life for themselves and their families. The concept has remained popular for over 100 years. The idea of communism began as early as 1848, when Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx published the Communist Manifesto. The Manifesto sought to abolish capitalism and the social class system, and promote education for all citizens. Socialism would also promote social benefits such as free health care, free education, and child care. In addition to these basic concepts, communism would promote the development of a proletariat, or working class, society. Symbols Among the many Communist symbols is the hammer and sickle. The hammer and sickle represents workers and the peasantry, and the sickle symbolizes the union between the two. Both are symbols of peace and equality, and the sickle is often a symbol of the Communist Party. Other symbols of communism include the red star and the hammer and sickle. Symbols of communism are often made of the same material, such as metal, such as iron, which is used to symbolically resembling a red star. Throughout history, communist symbols have served as both a set and a subject. These categories include individual Communist symbols as well as articles that discuss the various symbols associated with Communist countries. Some of these categories may eventually merge into one supercategory. Until then, however, they are both worth investigating. We have a list of some of the more iconic symbols of communism, below. It is important to keep in mind that these symbols represent a certain style of government.

As the sun set on June 8, 1969, a group of teenagers gathered near a massive tree in a main square of Budapest to mourn the untimely death of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones. By the end of the evening, sirens blared, teens were interrogated, and the myth of the most notorious juvenile gang in Budapest was born. The origin of the Great Tree Gang became an elaborately cultivated morality tale of the dangers posed by allegedly rebellious youths to the conformity of communist communities. In time, governments across Cold War Europe manufactured similar stories about the threats posed by groups of unruly adolescents. In Children of Communism, Sándor Horváth explores this youth counterculture in the Eastern Bloc, how young people there imagined the West, and why this generation proved so crucial to communist identity politics. He not only reveals how communism shaped youth culture, but also how young people shaped official policy. A fascinating read on the power of youth protest, Children of Communism shows what life was like for the first generation to have been born under communism and how one evening spent grieving rock and roll under a tree forever changed lives.

Communism, capitalism, work, crisis, and the market, described in simple storybook terms and illustrated by drawings of adorable little revolutionaries. Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true? This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism. Offering relief for many who have been numbed by Marxist exegesis and given headaches by the earnest pompousness of socialist politics, it presents political theory in the simple terms of a children's story, accompanied by illustrations of lovable little revolutionaries experiencing their political awakening. It all unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers–not to mention a Ouija board, a talking chair, and a big pot called “the state.” Before they know it, readers are learning about the economic history of feudalism, class struggles in capitalism, different ideas of communism, and more. Finally, competition between two factories leads to a crisis that the workers attempt to solve in six different ways (most of them borrowed from historic models of communist or socialist change). Each attempt fails, since true communism is not so easy after all. But it's also not that hard. At last, the people take everything into their own hands and decide for themselves how to continue. Happy ending? Only the future will tell. With an epilogue that goes deeper into the theoretical issues behind the story, this book is perfect for all ages and all who desire a better world.

"In the 1920s, with the end of the Revolution, the new Soviet government began investing resources and energy in creating a new type of the book for the first Soviet generation of young readers. In a sense, these early Soviet books for children were the ABCs of Soviet modernity. Creatively illustrated and intricately designed, they were manuals and primers that helped the young reader enter the field of politics through literature. Children's books provided the basic vocabulary and grammar for understanding new, post-revolutionary realities, but they also taught young readers how to perceive modern events and communist practices. Relying on a process of dual-media rendering, illustrated books presented propaganda as a simple, repeatable narrative or verse, while also casting it in easily recognizable graphic images. A vehicle of ideology, an object of affection, and a product of labour, the illustrated book for the young Soviet reader emerged as an important cultural phenomenon. Communist in its content, it was often avant-gardist in its form. Spotlighting three thematic threads--communist goals, pedagogy, and propaganda--Pedagogy of Images traces the formation of a mass modern readership through the creation of the communist-inflected visual and narrative conventions that these early readers were supposed to appropriate.
