Thank you my fellow comrades!!

I wonder why people believe it's a good idea to wear their political beliefs?

I used to do the same, but in hindsight I was being a lamer.

I agree with you there WCM. As I have tried to point out in the Natsbol thread, substance is more important than symbolism.

I agree, I limit an outwards show of my beliefs to a simple lapel pin and a red tie. I agree, it is rather lame to wear large amounts of political pararphernalia, unless the occassion definitely calls for it, like any time you can drink yourself silly at a house party. People think i'm "posh" and rich for dressing as I do anyway, they couldn't be further from the truth!

There is definitely a time and place. The same applies for the wearing of religious gubbins around the neck and bracelets etc.

Quick google search would help, comrade.

Is this what you had in mind?

You can find these by looking up 'Soviet Necklace' and 'Soviet Pendant'

To the others, maybe he might wear one of these not because he is communist, but because it's part of his heritage?

Although I find this rather ironic that someone is trying to make a profit off these..

Being born in the former USSR, it is indeed part of my heritage!

It's possible to go overboard and define yourself as a token Communist (or badly dressed). It's not a bad thing to make a fashion statement; People want these things because they like them.

That's a fair point. Wearing things like necklaces aren't necessarily going overboard in my opinion. Most guys I know who wear neck chains tend to hide them under their shirts. It's the people who are overt about it (wear Che T-shirts etc) that I oftentimes question.

Meh, yeah, I guess it's probably just irritating.

Indeed. It's rather ironic how a revolutionary icon has been turned into just another consumer item. I have my doubts that Che would approve of it.

Yeah, I wouldn't wear communist attire too often either. I wore a hammer and sickle shirt to school, thats about as far as I'll take it, and I wear it only when the mood strikes me, which is very occasionally.

They actually said "I don't know?"

Hey here's an easy way (what I did). Get fine silver chain (tiny chain links) at a jewlers shop and then just hang a кокарда from it.

Oh, cool!

Btw, I think maybe it's actually in a way beneficial to us. If communist necklaces, posters etc etc are sold around. This is because people will eventually be curious about the image and it's background. Even today I see people having pictures of chairman Mao or Che on their T-shirts/bags, and I believe these people might get curious and try and find out who they were and what they stood for.

Lenin once said: The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.
