A Series of Unfortunate Events - COMMUNISM

Communist regimes are probably the most unfortunate among all to have been thrusted on humanity. What is more outragious is its crimes have not been well documented.

Unlike Chinese and Russian communists which have a capitalistic flavor to it, Indian communists are more traditional and hardcore (inspiration to armed revolution).

The Indian Express lays out a brief history of communism in India. Full history, i.e. Thirty Years of Naxalbari, should be an interesting read.
Going back in history, into the 1940s, when the country was fighting for its Independence, the Communists actually excused themselves from participating in it. Why? Because the Soviet Union, leaders of Communist movement worldwide, was fighting Nazi Germany in the Second World War as an ally of the British.

Truth be said, whether it is Basu and Surjeet, Stalin or Mao, Karl Marx would have described them as despots, nothing else. Whether it was India, West Bengal, Soviet Union or China, people who were unfortunate enough to fall under their influence passed a gauntlet of pain.
