Communism saved capitalism

If not for the Communist revolution in Russia and the resulting rise of it as a foreign idea, Communist ideas may have taken root in America and the Western world. A revolution may not have happened, but the gradual corrupting influence of 'reform' would have taken its toll. At the heart of such reform is the rejection of individual action and accountability, the loss of freedom which is the herald of Communism. Thanks to the flawed revolution in Russia, the world had a clear look at the bottom of the slippery slope and took strong measures to protect capitalism.

Revolution hurt reform and everyone ended up off better because of it, except the Communists.

  1. It only worked for a while. We're taking some "historic" steps down the same slide these days.
