Albania Goes It Alone

What do you do when you decide the Soviet Union and Red China aren’t communist enough and “real communism hasn’t ever been tried”? Well, you give it a try!

Estimates of the number of Albanians murdered by the communist dictatorship range from 5,000 to 25,000, including 1,200 killed while trying to escape the slave state. Albania, with abundant hydroelectric power resources and petroleum, was the poorest country in Europe with GDP per capita around US$ 750 in the 1980s.


I wonder how many people who say that would accept* relocation somewhere else along with some reasonable per capita territorial value allocation ala sortocracy: “Sorting proponents of social theories into governments that test them”?

* With an “or else” stick to match the utopian carrot.


Not doing much better now:

With less than 10% that of the other hydro/petroleum economy, Norway.
