A ler este artigo do Telegraph: Was it jokes that defeated Communism?
Poor Mr Gorbachev. Every time he met Ronald Reagan at a summit, he was subjected by the American President to a stream of Russian jokes. Or rather, to be precise, Soviet jokes - the point of which was always to satirise some aspect of life under communism. What made it worse was that some of them really were very funny.

Your post reminded me of a joke which was ubiquitous in Russia when I started working with refuseniks in the early 1980's. It would usually be whispered after furtive glances to the left and right:
"So, comrades, we know that capitalism is the stage that follows mercantilism, that socialism is the stage that follows capitalism, and that communism is the stage that follows socialism. But what is the stage that follows communism?" "Answer: alcoholism."
