  Communist state - Wikinfo
In the technical terminology of political science, a communist state is a state where the form of government is based on a single political party, and that party claims to adhere to an ideology based on Marxism-Leninism.
The twenty-first century communist states are the People's Republic of China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos and Vietnam, though all have evolved politically and economically from their original form (and arguably away from the definition of a communist state).
Within most communist states there are no restrictions in theory and few restrictions in practice on the power of the state, resulting in state structures which are either totalitarian or authoritarian.

  Communism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With the collapse of the Communist governments in Eastern Europe from the late 1980s and the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Communism's influence has decreased dramatically in Europe, but around a quarter of the world's population still lives under Communist Party rule.
Following Lenin's democratic centralism, the Communist parties were organized on a hierarchical basis, with active cells of members as the broad base; they were made up only of elite cadres approved by higher members of the party as being reliable and completely subject to party discipline.
Despite the actvity of the Comintern, the Soviet Communist Party adopted the Stalinist theory of "socialism in one country" and claimed that, due to the "aggravation of class struggle under socialism," it was possible, even necessary, to build socialism in one country alone.

 MURDER BY COMMUNISM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
With this understanding of democide, Table 1 lists all communist governments that have committed any form of democide and gives their estimated total domestic and foreign democide and its annual rate (the percent of a government's domestic population murdered per year).
Their apparent precision is only due to the total for most communist governments being the summation of dozens of subtotals (as of forced labor deaths each year) and calculations (as in extrapolating scholarly estimates of executions or massacres).
Communist governments have almost without exception wielded the most absolute power and their greatest killing (such as during Stalin's reign or the height of Mao's power) has taken place when they have been in their own history most totalitarian.

 Hungarian Soviet Republic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The immediate cause of the formation of the Hungarian Soviet Republic was the failure of Count Mihály Károlyi's government of the re-born state of Hungary to reorganize the country's social and economic life on the shambles left over after the lost war and the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The new government decreed the abolition of aristocratic titles and privileges, the separation of church and state, and guaranteed the freedom of speech and assembly, free education, language and cultural rights to minorities.
The Communist government nationalized industrial and commercial enterprises, and socialized housing, transport, banking, medicine, cultural institutions, and all landholdings of more than 40 hectares.

 Glossary of Organisations: Co   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In 1919 the Communist International (Comintern) was founded, and as a precondition for membership all national sections of the Comintern (Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Spain, etc.) had to change their name to "Communist," thus moving forward towards distinguishing themselves from the crumbling Social Democracy (and the Second International) of the past.
The main, but short-lived, principal of this communist practice was the creation of a socialism based on Soviets, locally elected councils that for a short period ruled the Soviet government.
The Communist International degenerated after the Fourth Congress when in November 1922, Stalin came to power in the Soviet Union and the Comintern was disbanded in 1943 by Stalin, as a gesture of conciliation with the Allied powers.

Communists argued that King's policies had the effect of encouraging the rise of fascism in Europe: by failing to act against the Italian fascist invasion of Ethiopia in 1935, by refusing to support the Spanish Republican government from 1936-39 against General Franco's fascist uprising, and by supporting the British policy of appeasing Hitler's territorial ambitions.
Although the government reluctantly restored the communists to partial legality in 1943, the RCMP and the military were determined to keep communists in the armed forces under surveillance.120 This was an enormous job.
That the repression of communists was ideologically motivated is underscored by the fact that Canada was the only allied partner to impose such a proscription throughout the war.160 Despite the party's convoluted logic and twists in policy during 1939-41, Canadian communists never denied the need for a genuine anti-fascist war.

After a decade of ineffective reformist governments, the Party of Communists of Moldova (PCRM) was elected to power by a large margin, in February 2001, on a platform of pro-Russian policies.

It was this dismal outlook that facilitated the emergence of the Communist Party as a major force in Moldovan politics after a decade of independence.

 CNN.com - Economics strain South African government, union, communist alliance - September 20, 2000
The government is putting people into the streets, outsourcing some jobs, privatizing some," said Ernst Mmako, a union member who watched 100 activists holding demonstrations at this week's national meeting of the Congress of South African Trade Unions, which represents 1.8 million workers.
With the ANC and the communists banned during apartheid and many of their leaders forced into exile, fl trade unions became foot soldiers for the struggle.
That was, of course, until the ANC came to power in the country's first all-race elections in 1994 and had to begin running an economy that had neglected its impoverished fl majority and had simply too little wealth to redistribute, said Tony Twine, senior economist at the Econometrix consulting group.
