Dissident blog is your go-to source for news and commentary on the ideology, history, and legacy of communism. Our content sheds light on the ugly reality of communism—wherever it has been tried, communist rule has only succeeded in bringing death, hardship, and gross inequality.
Communism did not fall with the Berlin Wall. It’s legacy continues to haunt the globe, from Asia and Europe to Africa and South America. Moribund communist dictatorships still hold power in Laos and Vietnam while Cuba’s regime seems poised to survive for another generation at least. One-fifth of the world’s population lives under the same oppressive communist party established by Mao Zedong.
We envision a world free from communism. There is so much work left to do.
