Communist Etiquette in Hungary

This Comic Depiction of "Comrade Lenin Cleansing the Earth" was Communist Propaganda
"The first handbook at Communist etiquette is to be published in Hungary soon. The mushrooming Communist substitutes for religious christening (now "name giving ceremony"), marriage (under the auspices of party and state functions), funerals (complete with Red Flags, choir and party assigned eulogists), have compounded confusion. Customs and rites are varying and the state feels the need of some form of central direction." —As  reported in The Desert Sun, 1960
