It's over comrades!

It looks like the North Koreans are still partying to the same old communist tune. This was a recent torch lit procession by the members of the young vanguard called "Along road of socialism following the great party!" It took place at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang this past Wednesday evening to celebrate Youth Day.

It's still hard to believe that there are still some communist countries still in existence in this day and age. China, Cuba, Vietnam and North Korea are all of what is left of the old communist empire that threatened world peace and security at one time.

North Korea seems to be the only hard-line communist state out of the bunch. The other countries have flirted with limited capitalism in recent years. It's hard to imagine that Hungary used to goose step to the communist tune at one time not to long ago. Millions of Hungarians were indoctrinated with communist ideology and teachings at a very young age. Communism was a failed ideology that killed up to 100 million people worldwide in the 20th century if not more.

It is extremely unfortunate that there are still a small minority in Hungary who still have sympathies with this heinous ideology. A number of current politicians from the Hungarian Socialist Party were card carrying members of the old communist party. It is very interesting as many former communists around the world in different countries, as in Hungary, became left-wing socialists after the Cold War had ended. It is guaranteed that these politicians are still loyal or at least still sympathetic to the communist ideology. This is very concerning and troubling as communism is a totalitarian ideology that is incompatible with the 21st century free world we live in today.

Many of the former communists worldwide have also embraced globalism, which is the new communism of the 21st century. Globalism, like communism, is an internationalist movement which was created to destroy the free nation states of the world. Communism in theory sounds nice, but we all know what it is like in reality or in practice. Someone really needs to tell the North Koreans to wake up and smell the roses, the party is over! By the way, Coca-Cola is now available in North Korea, maybe they might start to wake up after all.
