Those statements are of course pointless unless EdvardK and Ismail tell us what they would consider a communist. Probably for the one, it's "myself and Tito",

AHAHAHAHAH!!! Great stuff, that's hillarious!

MUAHAHAHAHHA... kudos for this one, too!

Or if they consider that unfair, I will simply say that they both hold on to very narrow and specific dogmas that nobody else is interested in.

No, not at all - it's fresh and funny!

I did - to defend myself a bit - raise a few topics on the subject of "what makes you a communist" and truth to be told I don't recall anyone being very specific and hitting the mark. One can hardly call a person a communist just because one thinks "Stalin/Lenin/Hoxha/Tito (or substitute with a favourite dictator) is cool" or because one read a book by some author about the USSR and knew immediately that this was the right way to go...

Real Communists uphold Comrade Stalin and his fulfilling of the Legacy of Marx-Engels-Lenin!

Hoxha wasn't what was positive. What was positive was the extension of the gains of the October Revolution; the formation of a deformed workers state.
The present crisis in human culture is the crisis in the proletarian leadership.
Workers – men and women – of all countries, place yourselves under the banner of the Fourth International. It is the banner of your approaching victory!

Hoxha made Albania and isolated state. It would be interested to see what stance he would have during Gorbacev reforms. If he hadnt died in 1985

He potentially would have seen it as the final and inevitable stage in the restoration of capitalism in the Soviet Union.
