Criticism of communism
|Part of the series on|
Criticism of communism can be divided into two broad categories: those concerning themselves with the practical aspects of 20th century Communist states, and those concerning themselves with communist principles and theory.
The categories of criticisms mentioned above are discussed in separate articles:
- Criticisms of communist party rule is an article dealing with criticisms of the practical policies implemented by 20th century governments claiming to follow the ideology of Marxism-Leninism (these are usually called "Communist states" in the West).
- Criticisms of Marxism is an article dealing with criticisms of Marxist theory itself.
