P.S. it is quite ironic that much of neoliberal economic developments happened in the Coalition era. Those were however lower than those of China. It has resulted in a mentality in middle class that craves autocratic/authoritarian rule. You see, many Indian are under this impression that Hitler himself with his own hands brought the German economy back to glory. Most don't know about the actual economic policies, resulting in this myth of a great man who loved his nation and his people(he was a Austrian ffs). This has caused other distortions too, such as many think his rose from a humble soldier working hard to the post of General.
And since he had met with Subhas Chandra Bose and was fighting the Brits, many credit him for India's independence because he weakened the British Empire. They don't know what he thought of Indians.
Since we don't know about historical materialism, we buy into The great man theory of history, that we were a great civilization ruined by the muslims and europeans, that we must do what europeans did in order to become great again.
Which is why you see many Pajeets hanging out on /pol/ and /int/, trying to befriend the West so they can acquire the mentality of the master race. Communism means those days when we were allied with USSR instead of USA which impeded our transition to neoliberalism. And all those memes about muh gorrillon gulag prisoners, muh bread lines, muh equality regardless of merit have made many averse to actually reading the theory. They spew same memes you see posted by Red necks on twitter and repeat the talking points of American conservatives. Not to mention all that anti-SJW shit the meme savvy youth bought into.
