When the former head of the Soviet Union did a commercial for Pizza Hut, A beautiful moment in history

The fall of worldwide socialism at the end of the Cold War was one of the greatest moments in human history. I am very fortunate to have been old enough to appreciate it.

Many people who are too young to remember the Cold War however do not understand the degree to which the world came to understand the fundamental flaws of socialism. As the Soviet Union imploded on itself the folly of socialism became obvious for all to see. The economic system simply could not price goods and services effectively. As such its death was only a matter of time. And around the world the collectivists fell. Liberty – generally speaking – won.

And what better way to celebrate the victory over the totalitarian socialist monolith than with a nice hot pizza?
