	I think it partially is.

	Strange, how? Care to elaborate? 
	I would say that the 'hardcore' socialism of eastern europe/the
	URSS morphed into something more similar to the
	'polite' socialism that rules 'the west'.

	A look at the economy of the US, the leading 'capitalist
	free market' of the universe easily shows that the
	control that the government and its cronies have over
	the economy is complete. Power is concentrated in a few hands,
	just like in the good old URSS.

	From my point of view, although there's been a nominal fall of
	socialism, 'democratic' socialism rules everywhere.
