/r/GenZedong - Reddit + Communism = Weaponised Autism

Remember that we're comparing him to people like Enver Hoxha, an absolute lunatic who spent much of the country's budget covering the country with weird useless bunkers that nobody ever used, many of which still exist. A literal lolcow national leader. Or Ceausescu who I'm sure everyone knows about who ended up correctly against a wall.

Believe me, for as much as a lunatic as Hoxha was, and with the hardships he brought to the country after he cut ties with Albania's last friend China, he didn't create as many issues as Tito with his irresponsible financial policies, not to mention that being the country homogeneous unlike Jugoslavia there was unlikely to be any ethnic conflict. There could've been a religious one between Sunni Muslims, Bektashis, Catholics and Orthodox after decades of suppressing all these denominations, and thankfully there wasn't, because Hoxha's nationalism wiped out all communalisms among the population. Tito is falsely credited with keeping the country together, but in fact he fractured the country like no one else conjuring new identities out of nowhere (Macedonians - a social engineering and geopolitical experiment from his honeymoon with Stalin - Montenegrins, to some extent Bosniak Muslims) and doing absolutely nothing to foster a unified Jugoslav consciousness, he just figured that the artificial economic boom would've been enough to keep the country stable.
If you look at the late censuses, Jugoslav was a possible option, and very few people picked it up, preferring instead local ethnic denominations.
Albania had a sort of civil war after the fall of the regime, but that was more thank to the dumbass liberal government legalizing Ponzi schemes (not kidding) than any real mismanagement of resources by the communist government, which made do with what little it had after closing off to the entire world because of some lunatic's ideological dogmatism, and had nowhere near the destructive impact that the fragmentation of Jugoslavia had.
As for Ceausescu, definitely a lunatic. Unlike in Jugoslavia, the economy was a centrally planned state-owned market, but because he had to carve his path away from the Soviets he also had shitloads of loans given to the country to boost growth and show off how better he was than them.
When it was time to repay them, in the '80s... he just exported almost everything the country was producing, forcing some absurd austerity on the population. They were actually producing what they needed, but it went elsewhere because the foreign currency was sorely needed to pay back the loans.
Also the complete ban on abortion created an entire generation of orphans, many of whom ended up demanding his head in 1989. I suppose it was the opposite of the abortion holocaust that happened in Russia in the same period.

IIRC, they were forced to announce themselves as an actual Communist Party by the CHICOMs. Probably as a means to bolster some type of international support against the Soviets.

No, the Communist Party of Kampuchea existed since the '50s and Pol Pot was appointed secretary against his wishes in the '60s, back when it was building up critical force. Pol Pot had also studied Marx in his time in Paris, before he dropped out of school. Yes, the most competent Marxist they had was a college dropout.

They were definitely communist for real, at least in their minds, they just had very little idea of what they were doing and/or what was going on in the country.
Eventually when reality hit them like a running truck, they became very disillusioned.

What I'm saying is that the transition from "Angkar" to the "Communist Party" was partially forced by China.

It was the communist party all along, Angkar was the public name. Its nature of communist party was hidden but wasn't madeup on the spot.
I suppose you mean that China had them reveal themselves, but I'm not sure about that. It just brought next to no benefit to it, and I haven't seen evidence so far.

That particular thing is one of my favorite examples on the rare occasion I encounter someone who thinks they're a good idea or there's nothing wrong with them. You literally can wipe out an entire national economy with this form of pure economic cancer.

Haven't seen it mentioned yet, but /r/JucheGang is an unironic North Korean apologist subreddit.

Glad I found this, I hate these the mods running this place and all other "Leftist" subreddits. Most of the mods aren't even a year old and love shoving their bullshit everywhere.

It looks really dead. Only 2 people online. I think they all just use GenZedong (over 400 online when I last checked). I'd be fine with extending this thread to offshoot subreddits but I don't think many of them are very active.
Yes, GenZedong is the main Tankie subreddit. There used to be a few more, like "MoreTankieChapo", named of course after ChapoTrapHouse, but just like Chapo it got killed by the admins, because they apparently were too radical even for the commie shithole known as Reddit.

Also we should create a thread for Reddit leftists in general. No point having this, SLS and LSC separate.

Seems like /r/GenZedong has removed the incorrectly translated Chinese from their sub rules after it being there for the longest time.

Reddit commie zoomers browse KiwiFarms??

Jk, they probs got an actual Chinese foreign student or whatnot to correct them thou.

"Leftist" and "consistent" are mutually exclusive. They just want to suck off China and hate America, no matter what.
China dropped most of its actually communist shit except the authoritarian one party part. Pretty much like every time its tried, it ends up just creating another oligarchy which is composed of government officials instead of being classless cashless society. When will those idiots understand nobody throws the ring of power into mount doom once they get it

They'll just tell you it wasn't real socialism or some shit. And that this time it'll work.
