Based on this anons request

This thread is for the discussion on Communist countries during the cold war, or beyond, if you want to discuss contemporary issues in places like Cuba where Marxism still somewhat limps on. I have a strange historical fascination with communist countries during the cold war. I've read a few books on the period and watched lots of documentaries on the era.

>what is a communist country

Just for an overview, a "communist country" is a western term that describes a command economy that prescribes to Marxist Leninism, a 19th century ideology that predicts that society will inevitably transform over time into one where workers own the means of production through class struggle. The countries themselves never professed themselves to be communist, and places like the Soviet Union and East Germany described themselves as socialist worker states on their way to achieving communism. The Soviet Union and the other Eastern European communist states, Mainland China, North Korea and Cuba are such examples of communist countries during the era. The Soviet Union was considered during the cold war to be a superpower, on par with the United States.

>how do communist countries differ from non-communist countries

The main difference beyond the ideology, which functions in effect like a quasi religion, is the prerogative of the state over the economy. Collective farms, state owned factories and guaranteed employment make up the typical hallmarks of a communist country. Housing was also typically guaranteed, meaning if you were a worker your basic necessities were all met. On the other side of the coin, all these countries came with varying degrees of state repression and curtailing of private employment and entrepreneurship.

Feel free to ask questions or to make discussion.

>But people have the wrong idea of the reforms. What actually happened is the PRC borderline collapsed into civil war during the 1970s. The cultural revolution reached its apotheosis with pitched artillery battles between redguards, other redguards and the PLA. With that chaos, the regional governors did the only thing they could to ward off starvation since the central government wasn't answering their messages, they deregulated the economy. The people themselves, the average chinese people, embraced free enterprise and ended collectivization. It was either that or starve to death. Shit was so fucked up that it went literally unnoticed for years, and then Deng legalized what was already happening and took all the credit for it.

This book I'm reading at the moment better explains it honestly. Basically Deng was bought into power, and went touring around to foreign countries to court capital investment. He went to China and Japan and just behaved like a total asslicker, going "yes yes, we're all friends, we want to be developed like you". And then the second he got back into China just started bleating about how the west was on the verge of collapse and needs an excess place to dump capital. The author seemed to think it wasn't just a cynical ploy, and that the Chinese elites at the time were so brainwormed with Marxist theory they couldn't conceptualize a free market at all even when seeing it.

Whether or not Deng was a genuine traitor to the revolution as tankies say or not isn't the point, the army elites basically stood there and told him "We're returning to the previous collectivization, you're not wasting this much money on buying foreign factories". "Retrenchment" was the name of the policy from 1979-1982, and it was basically the government and military wanting to reform the economy back to how it was before Mao trashed it, further along Soviet lines. But as they got about doing so, they suddenly realized how much of a free market had developed under their nose, and the financial impossibility of stopping it. Each time they tried stopping it, the budget blew out and shortages got out of control. There wasn't the resources left to run collective factories because, to put it bluntly, the peasantry now refused to give resources out. Cotton wasn't reaching the factories, it was instead being funneled to priPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Just read a bit further in and it seems like quite literally yeah, the -entire- 1980s were a game of cat and mouse between the Communist Party and the people. A tug of war that went on and on. Retrenchment ended in 1982, but was followed by a crisis of inflation spiraling out of control as the government was stupidly lending out unlimited amounts of money to plug the holes in the economy. They tried floating some prices, and elaborate two tier pricing systems, but every time they did people would just exploit gaps in the market with the black market, defraud the banks some more, ending up with more inflation. It got so bad that the average bureaucrat was just going into a bank and getting a loan for lunch if he forgot his wallet. The average bureaucrat had two years of salary in debt at near zero interest rates he'd pay off with more debt, using that money to gamble, on dinners or just for whatever he wanted.

The soft war between the farmers and the government went on through the 1980s, with the government's loss during the first retrenchment. They licked their wounds, built up power, and then in 1985 came back again in a stronger position to bring the farmers back to heel. Demanding a return to low prices like in the Mao days. It worked at first but then people seen it precariously wouldn't, even the elderly communist party members seen the risks. The Chinese peasants became pretty much Kulaks, and every village had a lookout of kids watching for sedans coming over the horizon, and would sound the gongs warning everyone to hide everything. Government officials were shown up ladders to grain silos and the ladders were kicked out from under them. Other times they were simply dragged out of their car and beaten to death in the street.

But there's this same pattern of government nostalgia for the old days. None of those old toads -really- wanted markets, they didn't even want markets to get developed at first. At every opportunity it seems like they were trying their best to be like North Korea is today. They kept on going to war with the average everyday people, and just losing.
