Breaching the Berlin Wall
30 years ago today, the Berlin Wall was breached. It was the beginning of the end of Soviet domination of eastern Europe. Socialism collapsed under the weight of it own unfairness, corruption, anti-liberalism, repression and inefficiency. Let's hope we never have to go back to any of that. Though some dream otherwise.
