Transformation, not the end of Communism

Another comment in a discussion around the article We can never be sure we’d be the good guys by David Aaronovitch in The Times, January 2, 2020.

2 January 2020

One of the readers wrote in conclusion of his comment related to the condition of Poland during the war and afterwards:

“Only after Stalin’s death did Poland become a more peaceful place, but the fall of communism had to wait until 1989. For Poland, the occupation that began in 1939 only truly ended then.”

My response:

You have been misinformed. Communism has not ended. It was transformed. The stories of the Communism’s collapse are propagated by the Communists themselves.
