So realistically, Indonesia is going to be colonized by the Dutch, and it couldn't be stopped. And the only way to be free and growing is by breaking earlier from Dutch colonization

Yes. Probably make it so that for whatever reason, the Dutch were pushed out of Indonesia before they had a chance to consolidate their power. Also keep in mind the Java War, which secured Dutch influence in the region

The Americans may have something to say about that

So would the British, French, Dutch, Spanish and any other colonial empire holding land in the New World.

In fact, considering in the USA the red scare wasn't a really big thing around the 1880s (and god forbid the recklessness of the Wild West), it'd be a more opportune time to spread communism because the only other communist uprising happening before that was the Taiping rebellion in China in the 1850s, and it'd be another few decades before communism really gains traction.

Also, on another note, the only two nations America really cared about at the time were Mexico and British Canada, maybe Cuba here and there.
Getting Latin America to turn to communism early using missionaries, then using the massive sympathies and alliances to scare Europe away and make the rest of the Caribbean ours via. 'peaceful' inclusion into the Etazini Union as an autonomous EKR after independence is probably going to be my plan.

Oh I see. That actually makes a lot more sense than what I had originally thought. Your way to spread Communism might work

History :
The British Empire can trace it's first blossoming during the Age of Exploration when she competed with colonial powers such as Spain and France for domination of trade and commerce across the globe. England would establish settlements on the breast of the New World and the West Indies, while the East Indian Company would conquer territories at gunpoint in India. All these colonial enterprises would lay the foundations of her global empire. Britain would build her empire not through military conquest like Prussia but through the shrewdness of her merchants, not through brute strength but the power of her navy which guarded precious trade routes across the globe making England immensely rich and powerful. The industrial revolution would foster the explosion in science and industry giving her an even greater edge over her peers, and cementing her place has an industrial powerhouse. Of course, Britain would find herself at odds with continental powers first Spain, during the War of Succession, then France in the Napoleonic Wars.

The Napoleonic Wars would see Britain battling against France the fate of Europe and the world in the balance. In the end, Napoleon and his forces would be defeated at the Battle of Waterloo, and Europe would be forever changed. With the French menace subdued and the continent at last at peace, Great Britain would rise has the premier power of the world, giving birth to a 19th century Pax Britannica that saw the British Empire become the most powerful nation on the planet. It is now the dawn of 1884, and much has changed since that fateful day on Sunday, 18th June 1815. The concert of Europe plays on, and new players have joined the Great Game.

Though enjoying splendid isolation throughout most of the 19th-century things have changed. Britain has watched continental affairs closely, and taken into account the rapid rise of the German Empire, they watched has the Germans defeated the French in the Franco-Prussian war, and see it's influence spreading like fire across Europe. Has the Germans establish hegemony across the continent alarm bells ring on the islands. Like countless times before Great Britain, stands to oppose the strongest nation on the continent, to keep the balance of power is of the utmost importance.

No matter what occurs Great Britain will rule the waves, and the sun shall never set on the Empire. Even with rising industrial powers such as Germany, and Japan, the 19th century shall end a British century, and begin anew in the 20th. Has the old anthem goes Rule Britannia! Britannia rule the waves!
