"Communist regime" or a more neutral phrase[edit]

No, obviously that is not the case. 'Communist regime' is a pejorative term used by right wingers. It is not a term used by serious historians, and I believe you know this full well. The reason you are so determined and resolute that this phrase should stay is precisely because it is pejorative and fits your own personal point of view about communism.
However, I have many better things to do rather than argue about this; I have made my point, and if you insist that the article should say "communist regime" rather than something more neutral, you may have your way. Before you go much further though, if I were you I would check the spelling of what you call 'dinasty'. Very sloppy. AlasdairGreen27 (talk) 12:25, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Communist regime - that is my anwser to your main point. As to the second one (the "dinasty"): thanks. You see, you can be constructive if you want to ;) Viator slovenicus (talk) 20:13, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Look, I have some rather bad news for you, I'm afraid, if it's your answer to my main point - I suggest you should look a little more closely at the title of that article. Is that article titled 'Communist regime'? No. Is it titled 'Communist state'? Yes. Dear oh dear. There is a very very good and sensible reason why the article is not titled 'Communist regime': because that term is POV and not neutral. AlasdairGreen27 (talk) 21:15, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Dear oh dear. And what shall we do now? How to convey the simple fact that Brdo was confiscated by the Communist regime, while avoiding to actually use the term "Communist regime"? Indeed a hard issue. I leave the solution to you. I would however ask you not to revert my edit again, since it contains additional factual information, omitted in your version. (To prevent a futile edit war, I tell you in advance that I find the phrase "the establishment of a Communist State" inadequate and defenetely a worse solution than "establishment of a Communist Regime". If you want, we can discuss that issue in detail.) Take care, Viator slovenicus (talk) 21:50, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
I've already told you that if you want the article to say "communist regime" rather than something more neutral, you may have your way. I have simply pointed out that the term is POV and not used except by right wingers with an agenda. Over and out. AlasdairGreen27 (talk) 22:02, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
I've changed my mind. Since the link is to the article entitled Communist state, that term should be used. Plus, obviously, I don't think we need any POV here. Sorry Viator. AlasdairGreen27 (talk) 22:34, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
