It wasn't so much international affairs that resulted in communism. Communism imploded on its own, because that standard of living was so shyt poor. Look at China and Russia; they're practicing more free trade with other countries while their country loosens the grip on government owned businesses. They even have a stock exchanges; the very medium that shares profits of companies.

Not so much collapsed. but morphed. China isn't referred to as red or Communist China any more. Get hold of a copy of Marx's Das Kapital, or the Communist Manifesto, to get some idea as to how far Russia has wandered, for example.
An extreme application of socialism, if you may.

Cuba is a communist country, but they now allow private ownership of business. Canadians are allowed to buy property there.
