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.

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

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?
