    This page is a official variant on the main wiki. You can find the list of official variants here.


    Socialism with a Human Face (SwHF) was the moderately authoritarian and economically left-wing ideology of Alexander Dubček and the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia under his rule. It sought to bring about moderate liberal-democratic reforms, which put it at odds with the ideologies of the other Eastern Bloc countries. It sought to transition Czechoslovakia into a multiparty, democratic socialist state, and guarantee citizens the freedom of speech, press and movement. Socialism with a Human Face also had a distinct foreign policy, which was to seek good relations with both the Eastern Bloc, and western nations.

    Socialism with a Human Face believed that highly authoritative and centralized policies were no longer needed in Czechoslovakia, as the bourgeois class had already been defeated and done away with. It also sought to modernize Czechoslovakia, and have it join the rest of the world in terms of scientific and technological advancements. Moreover, SwHF believed that the proletariat must not only be liberated from the exploitation of the bourgeoisie, but also that socialism "must make more provisions for a fuller life of the personality than any bourgeois democracy."

    History

    It incorporates elements of Social Democracy such as a multi-party state, freedom of movement and lifted censorship of media while retaining most of the economic elements of Marxism-Leninism, all the while guided from a Humanist perspective.

    In response to Dubček's reforms, the Soviet Union and supporting members of the Warsaw Pact invaded Czechoslovakia. This caused a rift in Communist movements around the world, and the legacy of the invasion led to the actualization of Eurocommunism.

    • Marxism–Leninism - I admire your vision, comrade, but your methods are way too authoritarian... wait, what's that noise? Sounds like tank engines...
    • Hoxhaism - Thanks for refusing to partake in the invasion and leaving the Warsaw Pact, but why do you call me a dirty revisionist?

    • Juche - You supported the invasion!
    • Ho Chi Minh Thought - So did you!
