Europe isn't a country (!) I should tell you that USA is bankrupt and many countries in Europe too. The Nordic Countries in Europe are a few that still actually goes strong. All of them socialist-states.
Soviet Union was not a real communism country, plus it was a dictatorship.

The close-up didn't help clarifying what the structure on top is going to be.

[QUOTE=EuroVison;74529683] Thats your opinion, get your facts right, learn the difference between fact and opinion. The usa and really??? Europe is not a country!!! maybe your thinking European Union. The European Union sucks, and so does the usa. The resion the USSR collapsed is because the spent too much on building weapons. China is a Communist nation and they are going strong, while the usa and eu are in a deep recesion. I know europe pretty well and i can tell that they are going down all the way to the ground and i know the usa well too, and they are going down too. If you think you can prove somthing by posting gay things, then just dont post at all, im not going to answer to you again.

If communism is so great tell me one communist country that helps its people like Germany, or the United States. I know some european nations and for right now the U.S.A. are in economic trouble but its mainly because the US has a communist as president that is bringing everything down with his social progressive agenda, but look at France, they are working to solve their problems and mainly because there is a conservative president that believes in freedom

This is not entirely true. USA spent far more on building weapons at the time and somehow didnt collapsed. The real reason why USSR and other socialist countries collapsed was there was no economic account. In other words: they built a factory (I'm talking about factory making civilian goods, not military) and nobody could tell if it is profitable or not, if there's enough employees or mayby far too many, nobody could tell if the factory uses too much resources, energy, nobody could tell if the price of the final product is too low or too high and how it is related to costs. So, nobody could effectively MANAGE the economy, because everything was driven by a bullshit ideology not by pursuit of profit.

This is the real reason of losing the arms race. Overall output of the economy managed by ideology simply couldnt keep up to the output of the economy driven by market, that's the whole story in a nutshell.

Interesting question is, what would have happened If soviets switched to a true capitalism in mid 70's or early 80's (like China)? But it's off topic.

And Ryugyong Hotel is COOL That's how I imagined government pyramid buildings overseeing London in Orwell's 1984

Neither of which there are very many of. Is this a very early morning shot or is that area really that quiet? It almost gives it a ghastly look with the most unique building I have ever seen in the background.

The CIA is the biggest terrorist orginisation in the world and George Bush and co are the real WAR CRIMINALS also the leaders of israel commited genocide in palestine yet nothing is done

Fair play to North Korea for standing up for themselves and building this building, the reason there country starves is because they are isolated by america and there influence

statue would be too heavy and it would cause problems, the stars would look better in gold and smaller. statue also might look better in gold.
