Slang name for Communists.

Communists were mistrusted in the western world, especially by the Americans during the Cold War.

The Communist Party dreamt of making the world a harsh, dull, shithole of a place full of citizens who were supposedly all equal, but that was only if they (the Communist party hierarchy) were ever so slightly more equal than you.

This meant that when you were queuing for three hours for your weekly ration of potato, they would be using the restricted (to you and me that is) department stores full of the best goodies that the despised decadent West that they were sworn to overthrow could supply.

They conditioned their people from an early age into thinking being a that the communist way was the best way to be. If it was, then why oh why did so many people defect to the west?.
