    Kind of signaled the end for the movement as an ideal
    I think most people don't realize that pure social systems... e.g. pure capitalism, pure socialism etc. haven't really ever existed and are highly unlikely to ever exist in the future

    Re: Socialism could have succeeded?

    Eventually, socialism will "rule the day"....within another millennia or so.
    Right now we have a balance, more or less ,with capitalism, conservatism and liberalism...with conservatism being prime.
    This will change as we mature , become more respectful and civil , as a people.
