the domination of communism in the world

National communism

The history of communism in Yugoslavia gives an opportunity to observe the processes of
communist transformation in a large European country, which at the same time is not
completely subject to the Soviet Union domination. The Yugoslav version of communism,
defined in the West as national communism, was a specific social experiment. The idea of
Marxism-Leninism was attempted to be used as a glue of a concept of the federation of
nations that had powerful animosities against each other, who in the past had been both
victims and organizers of ethnic cleansing against each other. This brought about tragic
consequences as it turned out that the main and in fact the only factor connecting all the
republics of the federation was the person of the charismatic leader - Josip Broz Tito, the
author of such a concept. When he went absent, Yugoslavia gradually plunged into chaos,
and finally, under the influence of local separatisms, was completely disintegrated. The
ethnic conflicts between the nations, which were deeply hidden and never fully resolved,
escalated at that time with double the force, leading to the outbreak of the most tragic war
in Europe since the Second World War.
