Looking at Brexit and the broader political landscape. The confusion and inability of any political party to function in a coherent and effective manner must have been exactly how the communist world felt at the end of the 90's. Maybe its simply that democracy as we knew it is now foundering and evolving into something new.

Not very much like Communism in the 90s, though. Unless I've missed it we've not had tanks rolling across Westminster Palace Park and shelling the Commons :p. Elsewhere in Europe you could point to rioting in France, but that's true of every year in living memory. Go back really not very far in time and half of Europe is a communist hell and the likes of Spain and Greece are military dictatorships. We're not at a low water mark in post war Europe's democracy by any stretch of the imagination. We've had a relatively quiet spell for a decade or two that convinced people that quiet was normal. It's like in the UK when it doesn't snow for a couple of years and convinces Councils they don't need to stockpile grit anymore.
