Alan, that's a good question. One possibility is that much of the Communist propaganda seems more positive, at least in my (very limited) experience. Perhaps because conflict with the communists was more prolonged, and less intensely violent?

"Buzzkill". Interesting, but as an honest question, why is it that old Communist propaganda is "kitschy", but old Nazi propaganda sends a chill down people's spines? I only wish there was a way to ask this without invoking Godwin's law. :-)

Or you can be a total fucking buzzkill. Your choice.

Or, you can just leave them as they are, and reflect on the idealized face they put on totalitarian regimes that killed tens of millions of people in the 20th century as they worked to create the Perfect State.

A lot of satire potential here: With a little photoshop work, you could turn these into pitches for the elimination of dividend taxes.
