Very few actually believed. Many were forced by opportunism and fear. Most never believed but hid it deep.

In Eastern Europe communism was brought with Red Army and KGB.
Elections were rigged, opposition killed or sent to gulags.
Not a single country but Soviets intended it.

Actually communism was very much like fascism - the only difference
was that fascism killed on the nationality/race basis while communism killed on purely ideological basis. Anyway results were similar - millions dead.
