Which explains, of course, why it collapsed.

Also amusing is that hardly anyone in these countries tried to defend this
'most successful development model of the twentieth century'.

What did Marx say: social systems collapse when they are worn out and can
go no further?

The state socialist model was a dead-end.  Now it's gone, we can look at
building something that really will be successful.

Forward ever, backward never!
