  • Old Tensions and New Conflicts

    The United States is already in another Cold War with Russia due to events such as Crimea and Syria. The incident in Crimea is simply Russia wanting to take over former Soviet territory. The incident in Syria will be taken advantage of to start poking around in Russia's ally, Iran. This is because Iran and Syria have a mutual defense agreement which the United States and maybe other NATO allies will try take advantage of this by indirectly messing with Syria to the point where Iran outright becomes hostile towards the west which will be NATO's war juristiction to retaliate directly. However, this isn't a grand idea for the west because Iran is not only Russia's ally but China's. Russia and China also have been stopping certain trade with the U.S. dollar in markets such as oil which is pretty much a taste of the U.S.'s own medicine for what it did to the Soviet Union's oil market in the 1980's which is one of the main reasons why the Soviet Union's economy collapsed. Oil is currently dropping in price so Russia and many Middle Eastern countries are suffering from this but as long as the U.S. maintains use of the petrodollar by military force then the U.S. shouldn't be effected because that and faith in the U.S. dollar is what is merely holding in power still. Once the petrodollar collapses Russia will have much more control over the Middle East economically and the U.S. will lose a lot of that control. In the end, worst case senario I believe that neither side is willing to compromise and that not just a cold war but a WW3 would literally happen if both sides deal with this in such a stubborn manner.

  • Decentralized Russia is gradually falling apart

    I see a lot of people saying that Russia suffered the first hand the horror of Communism. However, the History likes to repeat itself. It's like World War One, "A War to end All Wars" and yet even worse conflict split up the World just 21 years after. I guess as Russia will gradually, slowly falling apart the Communism has a high chance to come back. Russia lost control over the time, and while Communist Regime is horrible it holds people in place, force them to work or to suffer. Personally I am against Communism, but from what i see I wouldn't be surprised if we will see on the news that KPRF or other Communist Party will take over.

  • The one reason why the KPRF lost in that last election was a divided left

    Russia's official opposition part is the KPRF (Communist Party of the Russian Federation), they got approximately 19% of the vote, while Independent (another socialist party) got about 8% of the vote. The other consecutive parties (also socialist) got a combined value of 10%, a total combination of the socialist/communist vote was 37%. Putin's party United Russia got 63% of the vote. Yes, even when combining the votes Putin there is evidence of election fraud, in some provinces more than 100% of the population voted in favour of United Russia. As time goes on, KPRF and other socialist parties are slightly gaining votes. Over time it seems likely that if a coalition/merger were to happen United Russia would lose to the socialist parties. Therefore there is a high chance, in the future, that Russia could possibly become Communist. But that is not necessarily bad, I urge you to go to the KPRF's main site. You may find that they are far more progressive than other parties.

  • We want equality

    Equality, free education, free housing, free health care this we want for society, we don't have big dreams luxury cars, we want sample lifestyle too much materialism related with psychiatric desoder doing anything just for profit and profits we want balance in world of power to not crush the lower nations.

  • Most likely so

    Putin said he wants to restore russia to its former glory back to the days of soviet russia. Putin unfortunately has too much power. He invaded ukraine and is attempting to take all the former soviet satellite states and annex them. He probably rigged the votes. He brings back the cold war. Enough said.

  • Could we not give it a shot?

    I am a communist myself, call me insane, you have the right to. I think it would be great for Communism to have another shot, because the people deserve to be treated equally and their choices will dictate where they go in life. The Soviet Union was a very powerful and industrial country, but it was unfortunately denied its chance of success. I won't go too deep into it, but if communists could reform another country and start fresh without massive opposition like from the Cold War, great things could be done. (Investigate Communism. Compare Communism with Captialism and other systems. If you do or don't like it, stick with your beliefs. You have the right as a human.)

  • Yep its Petty sad

    Every year in the Russian Federation the Communist party support increases by 1% or more. The Communist party already has a small spot in the Russian government. If that wasn't bad enough Vladimir Putin was part of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1975 - 1991. We are looking at a previous Communist leader that holds a Majority. As of 2016 the 'United Russia' Party holds a Majority with 343 out of 450 seats in the State Duma. Lets summarize that... A former communist leader holds a state majority in a social conservatism party (remember communism is a extreme form of socialism) and he holds the most powerful spot in a global super power. What is going to stop him.

  • Russia Learned its Lesson

    I don't think they're going back to communism. Just because Russia's taken over a few countries, it doesn't mean they're communist again. They may just want more territory. They should have learned their lesson from the Cold War. At this point, I think Russia's just wanting more land. They're not communist just because they took over a few cities in Ukraine. Most of you may think of communism as the Russians when they were against they US and they were "bad." Communism is advocacy of a classless society in which private ownership has been abolished and the means of production and subsistence belong to the community (copied from dictionary.Com). It's just a type of economy (a not very good one at that).

  • Communism is Basically Dead

    When the Soviet Union collapsed under its own weight in 1991, the largest Communist experiment in the world went with it. China is communist to an extent, but that country is more socialist than communist now. Even Cuba has softened its stances over the years, much like China. Russia isn't going back to the way it once was. China will make sure of that.

  • A return to communism seems doubtful.

    While communism is good in theory, it has repeatedly failed in practice. The country has experienced this first hand and it seems unlikely that the ever expanding younger generation will allow the sentiments of the past to repeat itself. Democracy has become more prevalent in the modern era, even if it just a polite term for "capitalism."

  • No, I don't believe so

    The fact that the USSR collapsed in 1991 gives me reason to believe that the Russians will be hesitant about becoming communist again. I think there is a chance that they do, but I believe that there is a greater chance that they do not. I think they would evaluate their history first.

  • No, they won't.

    No, I don't think Russia will be communist again. For a long time now it seems that people view Russia as a communist country, when they haven't been in a long time. They have no reason to go back to communism, especially with the people being the ones making the decisions.

  • No, not for a while atleast

    I think that socialism would better take care of the people of the russian federation, but the fascists have such a hard grip of the russian people and there is no real revolutionary potential within the country, even the communist party has turned to fascist tendancies, lately. Socialism will come one day, but it wont start in russian, but communism itself is inevitable everywhere

  • Too many people like making choices and money.

    The average Russian tended to like communism because it gave them an easy way to get and keep a job. State ensured job security is fantastic! The great pitfall of the communist system is the lack of choice. The government gave you a place to live and a job to work at care-free.

    The issue is that theses were assigned to you. You had no (or maybe little) choice of what specific apartment you could live in and what job you could work. And if you complained? The job would be taken to you and given to someone else more grateful for the communist system.

    Out of the wild west capitalism that came into place in the late 90's came a lot of very rich businessmen, They would likely not like to go back to the communist system -- running your own business is far more satisfying than having a government job managing a company. This is especially true when the prices set by the government are "wrong" for a given economy, and the sector you're managing fails to thrive. Then it's your rear-end in trouble.

    Russians want the glory of the Soviet Union without the communism. Putin knows this and feels this, and this is one of a few reasons why he's been trying to breed nationalism lately rather than focusing on the economy. They will become a nationalist Russia, but they will not become a fascist Russia, nor again a communist Russia.

  • No Way in Hell

    Even if Russia went back to Soviet-style politics, they would never be openly Communist ever again. Not only would it commit geopolitical suicide, but even its closest trading partners such as China (a Capitalist snail wearing a Communist shell) would be weary doing business with them, let alone the rest of industrialized nations around the world. Surely the international banks would have a very good reason to be worried. No matter what, Russia will never achieve that gravity of influence that it enjoyed during the Cold War, seeing as how many of its former satellite states are now independent, sovereign and democratic nations whose economies have dramatically improved since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
