These type of statements are the reason this discussion shouldn't belong on this forum. People are just using this thread to type "communism bad" in various different phrases, ignoring the history of the USSR and it's very real economic growth.The USSR was already economically done for after WW2.
I mean, if you think that the USSR didn't grow between 1917 and 1991 (as someone said in here) you really just deny reality. We can discuss how the USSR can be saved, we can discuss how it collapses earlier or doesn't even become reality. But telelogy is really tiresome.
