That New Man never made it. I watched the undoing of communism at close range.

It turns out that BENETTON is one of the biggest shareholders of the highway maintenance and administration company, through companies called Atlantia and Edizione.

None of the family members of Benetton are personnally involved in the running of these companies.

I did not include the source since it came from an German language newspaper.

A road built on stilts 45 meters tall: What could go wrong?

Would you want to drive on that thing? I wouldn't!
Why are we in the West so eager to judge and condemn? When did we become god?

I saw communism too. For much of my life, I was vehemently anti-communist. I now admit I was wrong.

In polls taken since 1991 in the post-Soviet countries, as many as 75% say that they lived better under communism.

It seems like the New Man was a partial success. Being
 
  • invaded by the U.K., the U.S., and 12 other powers (1918)
  • strarved by the British Empire's Gold Embargo
  • invaded by Hitler (1941, "Operation Barbarossa". 20 million are killed. 70,000 towns and villages are destroyed. A third of the Soviet Union is reduced to rubble).
  • under threat of a U.S. first-strike (Sep 1945 onwards, E.g., JIC-329 plan calls for dropping atomic bombs on 20 Soviet cities: Moscow, Gorki, Kuibyshev, Sverdlovsk, Novosibirsk , Omsk, Saratov, Kazan, Leningrad , Baku, Tashkent, Chelyabinsk, Nizhni Tagil, Magnitogorsk, Molotov, Tbilisi, Stalinsk, Grozny, Irkutsk, and Jaroslavl)
  • forced to compete with Marshall Plan
  • strangled by U.S. sanctions

did not help! Communism in the Soviet Union was distorted because the country was constantly under attack by the Empire of the West.
