The Dialectic in Action!

Could the destabilizing excesses of the past two decades only have been possible because of the collapse of world socialism? Did the existence of a flawed competition is curb the essential nature of capitalism? If this financial crisis had happened during the cold war, the people who destroyed our economy would have been guilty of treason, and deserving the death penalty.
