What’s wrong is that the Tory government has been in power for over a decade and thinks they can get away with increasingly authoritarian legislation like this

Not “thinks”, they are getting away with it.

“A lot” is the answer to your question. But communism is not one of the things we’re having to deal with at the moment. Quite the opposite in fact.

Censorship is one of the characteristics of communism.

Maybe do your research first before claiming to know something. Communism at it’s core is when no private property exist and basically everything is “owned” by the whole community equally. Hence the name communism. Censorship has nothing to do with that. It just so happens every state which was “communistic” (none of these really were communistic) had strong censorship. This is what we call correlation. What you mean is causality which means there is proof the two observation are directly linked.

It’s characteristic of all forms of totalitarian leadership. The communism/UK comparison is wrong because we don’t have a ruling party that shares any of the main traits of communism.

Anglo-saxon economics. Very short term goals, no viable survival strategy of the country.

“communism 2.0” proceeds to link an article about a leading capitalist country

Like when Covid lockdowns were causing shortages and every right winger said “this is what life under socialism would look like” without a hint of irony

I saw one that said “this is what life under Bernie Sanders would be like”. The person who posted it couldn’t compute that no, this is literally life under your beloved trumpy-poo. This is literally happening now, it’s not some hypothetical situation.

So is it like communism 1.0?

Communism is the oppression of man by man. Capitalism is the reverse.
