Are all communists evils?

I think they all are human. However, about all the disasters happened under the rule of communist party, I personally believe that we cannot blame them only to a single political party.
China was a feudal empire with long history. Along over 2 thousand years, Confucianism, both as a philosophy and political idea, successfully controlled Chinese people's minds. The core of Confucianism is its strict moral doctrines set for relationship within family members and social roles. These well established principles did hugh contribution for the feudalist monocracy. Thus the individualism could never take place in China. I believe that under this cultural background, individuals would take any opportunities to explode their oppressed ego, thus man-made disasters occur time to time, and the terrible events happened under communist government were just a continuation of the consequence of this extreme "collectivism".
