    It is such a deadly ideology for capitalist, kings. And it was known to them if communist gets the power than they will become insignificant just like a common man. So they used the media to spread lies about communism..thus they moved common peoples mind away from truth(marxist ideology) . Even USSR fell this way, the capitalist who lost their power, entered in CPSU. They stared making certain decision which was against common people.. So the people found themselves in a horrible situation, that socialism which was supposed to work for them now acting against them. The government started ignoring common peoples right. It was severely corrupted. And all these things started just after stalin’s death.. Ultimately S.U. ended with white revolution in 1991…
