      This is a trick question, the real answer is that there weren’t real communist countries

          It’s the final refuge for tankies. That and the old “social democracy only works by exploiting the global south” canard.

            Yeah, I could see finding this unconvincing if you haven’t read theory, history, or were just cool with benefiting from imperialism

      I mean even in the case of USSR they had to wait for more than a decade to actually get a livable apartment, not to mention severe lack of infrastructure…

      But of course, better than people just kicked out to the streets. But then again, less is not none. The housing situation definitely didn’t do USSR’s overall economic status any favor.

      People at least had somewhere to go

      that’s just moving the goal post, isn’t it?

      Soviet Union? It was uncommon for a family of 6 to live in a small apartment. You can even see it in old soviet movies where apartments would be separated by curtains (common comedy trope).

      I’m sure there were extra houses after all those people that starved to death.

        In Communist countries people starve to death because of famine, in Capitalist countries people also strave to death because of famine while still starving to death after famines are over because they cant afford groceries.
