Question by Linangus: If Gorbachev’s reformation had worked, would the CCCP be better than America is now, socially and economically?
Judging by the goals of perestroika, demokratizatsiya, and glasnost, it looks like the CCCP would have a more tolerant, honest, and Marxist government. Also, uskoreniye looks like it would have accelerated the Soviet Union’s economy to a point like modern-day Scandinavia, with similar social benefits. For those who fundamentally hate communism, I have two things to say: READ THE MANIFESTO, so you actually know what you are talking about, otherwise your opinions are utterly invalid, and will be ignored. Secondly, capitalism is currently destroying itself as you are reading this; Marx’s and Engel’s predictions of the collapse of the bourgeoisie are obviously seen. Also, no, America is not all that great. We butcher emerging countries, like Guatemala in 1954, Chile in 1973, and Cuba in 1952-1959. Not only that, but we supported foreign terrorists in Afghanistan in 1979.
