Communism Never Fell
In the 1980’s Mikhail Gorbachev ushered in a new age of perestroika and glasnost in the U.S.S.R. This meant restructuring and a new openness in Russia. On January 16, 1991 the Unites States went into Iraq (for oil). In that same year, the summer of 1991, tanks refused to fire on demonstrators in Moscow and the West declared that communism had fallen.
What really happened? The Soviet Union decided it could not keep spending money in a direct arms race with the U.S. But, the Iraq War proved the West was still trying to take over the world. In 1993 after the fall of communism in 1991, there were more members of the communist party in Russia than all other political parties in Russia combined.
Communism never fell, or to be politically correct it was just waiting for the chance to comeback. The Communist Party simply restructured, got rid of its colonial possessions since colonialism was at odds with communism, and tried to keep building its global Party.
The U.S. had a misunderstanding about what Communist theory and goals were. The goals of Communism were world peace and brotherhood, their theory says that inequality of wealth causes war. Communists want world peace by any methods necessary, Socialists only by democratic methods. Communist theory says that Communism is destined to win over the Western ideologies because as the number of poor people grows in the the world they greatly outnumber those in First World developed countries. 85% of the world’s population lives on less than 10 dollars a day, children in third world countries live in mud huts without clothes and electricity. Babies starve to death without milk or medicine.
Meanwhile the average income in the United States is $52,000 a year, approximately. There are 320 million people in the Unites States and 500 million people in Europe that constitute the First world, but there are 7.4 billion people on the planet. You do the math.
Communist theory says in the long run the poor will see it is in their interest to back communists and that it is only an inevitability that communism will win.
Historically, Communists play quantity, the West plays quality. We deliver high tech cars and computers, they deliver bread and salt to the people. We say we are superior so we take the best people. They support the poor so they take the numbers. They will take a billion people in Indochina and the Middle East, even if they aren’t advanced. They take the numbers. The U.S. takes the 7 million people in Israel because we say they are better than the 366 million Arabs.
Russia really has two parties, The Communist Party and a Socialist Party. Medvedev was head of the Socialist Party that makes Putin the head of which party? They just switch between which one is President and which one is Prime Minister since after all Russia is a democracy and people get to vote.
The U.S. actually lost the Cold War in 3 years by 1948, when Russia got the plans for the nuclear missile from a high ranking State Department official captured in MOscow, George Kennan, who delivered to us the Long Telegram, stating the Soviet position on why they were destined to win the Cold War.
Since then the U.S. has been trying to get out of a global check.

They all take the names of Angels because men are not Angles. The United States tries to use Christianity to rule the world and Russians try to use communism. Russia is America’s nearest adversary because both Russia and the U.S. want to rule the world.
Communists are atheists. The West is Christian. Nonetheless, Communists learned something from Christianity- peace and brotherhood. The Russians were once Christian so they had some sympathy for it, but they believed communism was the next step in human advancement. They came to believe after leaving Christianity that it was superficial and immature. It suffered an almost complete ideological defeat in communist countries.
