In the 60s in the soviet union, my whole family on my fathers' side lived in a small room the size of an average living room under capitalism. They could hardly afford clothes and had to wear a pair of shoes for years. They couldn't afford a car, yet they worked hard for their state. If this isn't called being poor, idk what is.

Communism is stateless so you're not making the point you think you're making. The USSR wasn't communist, it was state capitalist aka hyper-capitalist.
