Democracy and Communism
In the history of communism, 2018 has emerged as the most significant period, particularly in the 21st century. This year the number of countries being ruled by communist parties has increased from one to six, with Nepal being the latest example. Other communist-ruled nations are China, Vietnam, Cuba, North Korea and Laos. However, Nepal is an exception because it is the only country in the world where the communist government has been democratically elected through popular vote. This shows communism is gaining popularity as the most viable economic and political system, which is more beneficial to the masses than the other popular ideologies. This also suggests that communism is not a dying ideology and can easily coexist with democracy.
