If your analysis on WHY the Soviet Union fell is summed up here, then maybe you don’t get it at all. Communism was never a viable ideology, and the Soviet Union fell not due to stagnation, but active resistance from involuntary member states and from citizens within.

Additionally, you say it “collapsed” “into authoritarianism, extreme inequality”, etc.. Nope, that’s Communism right there. With a false initial premise, the rest of your blog post is irrelevant.
