50 funniest communist slogans

Share this post on:

Communism is a time that some remember with nostalgia and fondness, while for others it is a source of trouble and suffering. Some people speak of socio-economic progress, while others tell horrific stories of terror and repression. Whatever is said about communism, it is clearly a time of contradictions, and accordingly our perceptions and reactions to it are equally confused and contradictory.

The lack of a market economy and competition led to the motto of many people of that era: ‘I lie to them that I work, they lie to me that they give me money’. The easy-going atmosphere, mixed with a dose of fear but also apathy in the society of the time, fostered the creation of a number of absurdities. One of the great communist absurdities was definitely the huge signs with inscriptions from that time. Their purpose was to re-educate future generations in the bright communist future, but even then, many of the inscriptions provoked smiles because of the ill-conceived, ambiguous and not always adequately worded slogans. Here is our compilation of the most amusing and funny communist slogans of that bygone era. Happy reading!
