We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.
-Soviet Leader Nikita Krushchev, 1959
When I find quotes like this, it makes me wonder why I bother blogging at all. I mean, what more do I really need to say? Doesn't this say it all? Isn't infinitely more prescient than I could ever hope to be with my diminutive predictions?
The other thing that blows my mind is the fact that one of the two most powerful men in the world could say this and, despite the fact that he stands for everything we stood against (note the past tense), it has still come to pass.
Wake up. Wake up, America.
