Reality: EVERYBODY living in that part of the world in the 50s, 60s, and 70s was a communist; the alternative was being a corpse. By the early 90s, Milosevic had grown out of it.
more special pleading.
Milosevic was not just an average citizen going along with the flow.
He was the leader of the Serbian Communist Party. In other words, he was a hardcore Communist ideologue of the first water.
By the early 90s, Milosevic had grown out of it.
Really? Then why did the SPS affiliate itself with the Cuban Communist party and the North Korean Communist party, rather than the French Socialist party or the British labour party?
I suppose Castro and Kim Jung-Il had also grown out of Communism as well and that you would argue that they are dedicated market advocates now as well.
