Nancy Nancy. What we "expect" of a "successful...revolution" communist or
otherwise is rather beside the point. One result of that "failure" is that
the United States today is not isolated in a world dominated by Nazi
Germany and Imperial Japan. Such a "better" record depends on our
continuing struggles all over the world, not the individualist and
arrogant notions in one or many persons' brains. You seem to be merely in
love with your own notions, unwilling to be concerned with such a messy
and tragic thing as real history.
