    Things that happen in Silicon Valley and also the Soviet Union:

    - waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it's of poor workmanship and quality

    - promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out
    - living five adults to a two room apartment

    - being told you are constructing utopia while the system crumbles around you
    - 'totally not illegal taxi' taxis by private citizens moonlighting to make ends meet

    - everything slaved to the needs of the military-industrial complex
    - mandatory workplace political education

    - productivity largely falsified to satisfy appearance of sponsoring elites
    - deviation from mainstream narrative carries heavy social and political consequences

    - networked computers exist but they're really bad
    - Henry Kissinger visits sometimes for some reason
    - elite power struggles result in massive collateral damage, sometimes purges

    - failures are bizarrely upheld as triumphs
    - otherwise extremely intelligent people just turning the crank because it's the only way to get ahead
    - the plight of the working class is discussed mainly by people who do no work
    - the United States as a whole is depicted as evil by default
    - the currency most people are talking about is fake and worthless
    - the economy is centrally planned, using opaque algorithms not fully understood by their users

    I wonder what causes all those "coincidences".
    Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    The people in power are not lying about their public position, they are the leaders that everyone else conforms to and they are the ones enacting the policies that create the present conditions.

    The only lie is that communism is intended to help anyone but the powerful.

    No, they are not lying when they state that their public position is communism, the lie about the purpose of communism is not relevant to the article you linked to about people lying about what their position is.
