    Just goes along with the rest of the fail that is marxism.
    The vast majority of people that lived under communism were not Russians, they were the Chinese and South East Asians, all countries with alcohol consumption rates lower than ours. Correlation does not prove causation, but lack of correlation always disproves causation, so there goes your hypothesis about communism causing alcoholism.

    No, its just that extremism in ideology makes what might be otherwise fairly intelligent people say stupid things.

    I am well aware they weren't all Russians-I seem to remember most of the major wars of the last century involving soviet expansion in at least some way-including WW1.

    Some interesting info...
    How Alcohol Conquered Russia - The Atlantic
    “Widespread and excessive alcohol consumption was tolerated, or even encouraged, because of its scope for raising revenue,” Martin McKee wrote in the journal Alcohol & Alcoholism. According to Brown, by the 1850s, vodka sales made up nearly half the Russian government’s tax revenues. Following the Russian Revolution in 1917, Lenin banned vodka. After his death, however, Stalin used vodka sales to help pay for the socialist industrialization of the Soviet Union. By the 1970s, receipts from alcohol again constituted a third of government revenues. One study found that alcohol consumption more than doubled between 1955 and 1979, to 15.2 liters per person.

    Some have claimed that heavy consumption of alcohol was also used as a means of reducing political dissent and as a form of political suppression. Russian historian and dissident Zhores Medvedev argued in 1996, “This ‘opium for the masses’ [vodka] perhaps explains how Russian state property could be redistributed and state enterprises transferred into private ownership so rapidly without invoking any serious social unrest.” Vodka, always a moneymaker in Russia, may have been a regime-maker as well.
    The soviets were keeping their people drunk, because they were making a killing off of it. Charming, isn't it?

    odd, since the poll shows 2.54% favor to your opinion.
