FROM THE PUBLICATION, ‘PRAVDA’, JANUARY 17, 1990. THE ‘REFORM SOCIALISTS’ ARE FEELING VERY ANXIOUS. The events inside the Soviet Union are racing out of control. At the beginning of the reform the hope was that distortions of Stalin and Brezhnev eras would be eliminated, and the move would be made to resume the construction of Socialism and Communism. But starting in the last half of 1988, events took a different turn. ‘Perestroika’ has acquired an openly Anti-Communist character. The year of 1989 will go down in history as the year of the collapse of the World Socialist system. There will be further movement toward the right. It is quite likely that in 1990 even the notion of the ‘Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic’ will disappear from the political map of the world.
The western world must move cautiously for it seems that as the Soviet Army withdraws from Eastern Europe they will be leaving behind large stockpiles of ammunition and fuel. Could this mean that in a time of Crisis the Kremlin could move more easily in return? Could the change be in name only, time will tell?
Pat Buchanan: our Nation’s Capital shows the big failure of Liberalism. Under the decade of urban experiment in Secular Humanism, and Liberal politics, everything the LEFT has preached has been practiced here. The ACLU, and NEA dogma of bushing, teachers union, and iron prohibition against religious training and moral instruction has turned the schools into hell holes of crime and drugs.
