Multiple realities
(covers information from several alternate timelines)

Communism is a political and economic ideal and philosophy that was embraced by several Earth nations in the 20th and 21st centuries. The pillar of the Communist philosophy was equality and pre-planned economy. Nations that embraced it included the Soviet Union and China. Slang terms for a person who followed this ideal, better known as a communist, included "pinko", "red" and "commie." It was the clash between communism and capitalism that drove the Earth Cold War.

In 1953, Douglas Pabst insinuated that Herbert Rossoff was a proponent of communism. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

A subtle additional reference might be found in "Bar Association", where Rom briefly quoted the The Communist Manifesto.

In an alternate timeline, Lenin was assassinated by an unknown assailant in 1916, and no one managed to take his place. As a result, Russia never turned to communism. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")
