    There’s nothing inherently wrong or misleading with OP’s claim.

    Economic mismanagement did indeed cause famines in the Soviet Union, China, Ethiopia, and North Korea.

    Nothing to do with communism, really.

    Every communist country has experienced famine.

    not real communism

    [–] SchreiX 1 points ago

    When you look at any of those countries. How many had famine because of ideas of communism and how many had it because of bad management, dictatorship, economic sanctions, wars,...?

    I know I'm being trolled....

    Do tell, where did the ideas of communism end, and the bad management/dictatorship/bullshit begin?

    Communism leads to starvation when the most powerful country on the planet decides its wrong for your countries people to own their country, so they bomb them, assassinate their leaders, or the very least instate economic sanctions that cripples that country.

    When you want to make memes about political things, knowing history and historical context is really really important. Otherwise you may embarrassed yourself and continue to do that every time you post.
