Written by Mikhail Gorbachev

You say that laissez faire capitalism conquered communism, but that is not what happened, communism was overturned by a grass roots dissatisfaction and the realization that a centrally controlled economy was unworkable. Your day is coming, too:  the 80% of the world's population who live in third world countries and have 20% of the world's wealth will not continue to tolerate a situation where 20% of the world's population utilize 80% of the energy and have 80% of the wealth.
