What would Eastern Europe look like without communism?
portuguese countryside looks way poorer than northern or western serbia. most of serbia is green with rivers everyone, that looks lke a poor desert.
tho lisbon is stunning and clearly wealthy in parts.
Eastern europe was poorer than western BEFORE communism came
>5 million people vs 40 million people
I actually like Poland but holy shit what the fuck is wrong with the posters here. You're shit like the rest of us, it doesn't matter what could have been just accept it already goddamn nigga.
Eastern Europeans believe they would look like pic related, but in reality they would be the same shitholes as now
Reminder that eastern Europe used to be richer than western Europe at one point, and reminder that were it not for NATO, that would be the case again.
And since NATO is crumbling and USA is slowly going to shit, it may actually not be so hard to imagine eastern Europe being richer than the west again.
Byzantines used western Euro buttnaked tribesmen as cannon (or arrow?) fodder, and even Serbian empire used them to work in the mines and so on. Now that we no longer have to stop Ottomans and now that cold war has ended and now that the west is getting cucked out of existence, eastern Europe will be richer again.
