Communism fell because it was a flawed concept and a flawed experiment, not because some nation fought a glorious struggle over it and overcame. It fell because it wasn't sustainable. It wasn't sustainable because of various reasons, but one of the main ones was economics: if there hadn't been an arms race between the US and the Soviet Union, the SU would have lasted for a couple of decades longer but ultimately failed. If there's one reason the SU and thus communism fell, it's the bankrupt nature of the SU after it was clear the Americans won the Cold War.

So, it's a complex question that deserved a book or 15 to answer.

And maybe not even then. The idea of Communism is a utopia, and it's not what mankind is about. Communism promotes equality for all, but the human being is competitive by nature, and if you strip that away then you will have minds that implode. When saying this, I also recognize that there has never been such a thing as pure communism anywhere in the world. There has always been a ruling class. But I also acknowledge the fact that there has never been an entirely free market economy, free from regulation, anywhere at any time. But the capitalistic system is also flawed, as we have seen numerous times through history.

Those are just my ...

Yeah, well, I wanted to stay for 1.5 weeks, but I cut it short to 1 week because they forecasted bad weather in the Swiss Alps... "dauerregen", "gewittrig" and "unbeständiges Wetter".

Wow, great picture! Unfortunately we don't have any mountains over here, no snow, and the sun left a few days ago. And I have to work tomorrow, from 8 to 6
