It would be an ironic humour since it was produced under rampant capitalism and likely through the use of globalised cheap foreign labour.
Hahaha that's very true

I wouldnt be 'annoyed' per say, but it does reflect on you.
(Original post by georgeparasol12)
I wouldn't be annoyed, you can wear what you want but I wouldn't have a very good impression of you.
What would you think about me?

(Original post by Alesha1991)
I wouldn't find it offensive but I might think they were a bit of an attention seeker or trying too hard to be edgy. Either that or they might be someone with a very idealistic view of communism and be ignorant of the actual history.
Honestly it's just a cool looking symbol which is why I like it.

Welcome to the 1970s! If it wasn't communism, it was CND

No.
I'd assume that they were an attention seeker, tankie or marxist.
Just as I'd assume that someone wearing a swastika outside was an attention seeker, fascist admirer of the nazis or idiotic raelian/fringe hindu trying to reclaim it as a peace sign.

Socialist speaking here:
An idealised, free (apart from the freedom to hoard wealth to the detriment of the community...),functional, prosperous society with communist ideals is about as utopian as it gets, in terms of life satisfaction for the most people. Communism in general is fine for a t-shirt- not really any different to a shirt with a cringy inspirational slogan, when you look at it philosophically. However, a shirt glorifying a particular communist regime, while likely ironic, could offend people who have been hurt by that regime. Communism tends to be implemented as a populist dictatorship that emerges out of economic and political weakness, creating a turbulent situation that quickly collapses from internal and external forces that have large monetary capitalist interests.

Is it a Che Guevara t shirt?

Possibly one of the most commercialised communist icons in the world.

I would keep 4/5 meters away and i would assume your an ex-KGB spy and have strong ties with Russia. I would wish that you come across a fat american which has a FBI T-shirt and a MAGA cap and have a fight which would be legendary, however i would fear that a global nuclear war might breakdown and US-Russia ties could be worse than Cuban Missile crisis mishap.

It's a pretty symbol but that doesn't disregard the history behind it.

No it just has a communist symbol with "USSR" underneath.
That's true though, Che Guevara is everywhere especially on posters.

Just wear it, most people won't even know what it is.

"Communist Symbol" that is either a star or hammer and sickle.

Yeah I thought that too. I should have been more specific, it has a star at the top, hammer and sickle in the middle and then the USSR text.
