@travis: maybe you remember some poster from the time that Lenin was in charge. It was a red poster with a person doing hard labour on it.
So actually that kind of a person was called a communist (i guess) because he worked not for himself but for (as we used to say it during history class) "Father State".
(if im completely wrong correct me because im not yet in the brain_cell_dying_phase of my life)
