The hoax of communism: A centennial reflection
A century later, the communist revolution is remembered only for its failures.
The centenary of the revolution that heralded communism as a creed has come and gone. Communism across the world has nearly disappeared and therefore, there were no celebrations of the anniversary. The Indian communists preferred to remain silent, writing a few anodyne articles, and belching out a few perfunctory slogans of how the revolution is still alive and relevant. Those uttering these homilies and slogans are a part of that organised elite which has grown, nurtured and patronised by the communist system of the past. A century has proven the hoax and hollowness of communism, some had seen it much before the others had anticipated how the creed will one day crumble.
