Looking Back

We are now in a position to address the question posed in the Preface: whether the failure of Communism "was due to human error or to flaws inherent in its very nature." The record of history strongly suggests the latter to be the case. Communism was not a good idea that went wrong; it was a bad idea.

- Richard Pipes as he concludes his book, Communism: A History.
