We were happy that the wall came down. But we were not happy that Reagan type capitalists (low on intelligence and high on arrogance) took the credit for it or were going to enjoy the fruits of this liberation. Capitalist triumphalism led to strengthening of islamic fascism (post 1989) because the capitalists too have a false or limited understanding of freedom, human rights and enlightenment. Liberating human beings from bolshevik tyranny only to deliver them onto capitalist dollar greed or islamic or chinese fascism, lack of labor rights, bank frauds, turbo-capitalism - what good idea is that?
