We knew that Prague hosted a glorious Museum of Communism, but we didn't realize those comrades were also good at generating original humorous propaganda similar to what is being heroically produced by the People's Cube Department of Visual Agitation.
The images were scattered all over the Internet, so the boys down in Visual Agitation spent quite some time collecting them from various sites and bringing them up to standard. This may well be the most complete online collection so far.
The museum's theme is "Communism - the Dream, the Reality, and the Nightmare." The immersive experience includes a historical schoolroom, an Interrogation Room, state-run factories, or the video clips in the Television Time Machine.
Other exhibits cover such topics as daily life, politics, history, sports, economics, education, Socialist Realism Art, media propaganda, censorship, the army, the police, the secret police, judiciary and coercive institutions, including the Stalinist show-trials and political labor camps.
If you're not visiting the Czech Republic anytime soon, you can take this virtual tour, sit back, and enjoy the wonders of The Glorious World of Next Tuesday.
And then there's the souvenir shop where we would probably spend as much time browsing their posters and postcards as we would inside the rest of the museum. See for yourselves. ~
And these are the posters created a few years back to promote the "Get Intimate with History" exhibition at the museum.
This whole "life imitates the Cube" thing is starting to get out of control! Either we're getting psychic or we're getting popular!
Battlebot PotemkinWhy, oh why can the West not see what is so obvious to those lived under Communism/Socialism/Progressivism?
Because the KGB did such a glorious job with their Subversion campaign here in the USSA, Comrade.
Starting in the 1930's and 1940's, they infiltrated virtually every American institution -- one of them became Vice President of the United States, and only missed becoming President by about three weeks -- and much of their effort was concentrated in the Educational sector.
Indeed, the architect of the US Publik Skool system was an out-of-the-closet Marxist, and Soviet sympathizer: John Dewey.
First they took control of the universities, especially the ones that trained schoolteachers. By the 1970s the head of the National Education Association (publik skool teacher's union) was an out-of-the-closet Marxist himself.
So to answer your question, the West cannot see it because the West has been
My real-life counterpart recently had a highly disturbing exchange with one of these on the social media site Google Plus:
The kid just couldn't accept
And THAT is the answer to your question, Comrade Potemkin.
Captain Craptek thought he was making a joke when heThis wonderful display of posters got me rummaging through my piles of discarded nut shells and look what I found! I think this poster was Comrade Putout's inspiration for the famous Esteemed Holder of the Flag Pole™ logo. I wonder if I should send this to the museum?
I was always his favorite...
How did you get this!? I didn't know that Gulags Gone Wild allowed sneak peeks. But who'll be the -ahem- "other half" of this "adult" movie?
A friend of a friend went there recently, tried to create the New Man and failed, then posted this on Facebook:
Quote:I have scored poorly on my quest to create a "new socialist human" - a fun interactive game at the DDR Museum (East Germany Museum). You get to pick outfits and accessories for your character in an attempt to make a perfect socialist. Unfortunately they didn't have an option for a Bernie t-shirt, which I'm sure would have overcome all my other shortcomings.
Just wait, young cadres, I vill giff yu a lesson vrom zhe Gloria‒Of‒Zhe‒Past!
While we're at it: I can recommend the old Stasi prison, now a museum, in east Berlin. It is run by a German anti-stalinist group (spit, spit).
It's a great place for us confirmed progressives, where you can learn new and interesting ways to control the masses. Their system of psychological torture and their network of literally millions of "civilian informants" are an example to us all.
There's even a video guide:
zhanks, Minitrue - you truly an expert on True Ministry, including Herr Mielke's MfS aka Stasi!

(if not know - but want know, or if know - but unsure, then : ask/post below!)
P.S. uh, pardon - vronk pikture, vronk pikture, here zhe korrekt pikture :
