Are sick of hearing references to Whit Stillman's film, Metropolitan. But, I have got to mention another, which has prob been offered here before but in a different context.
Does "ceasing to exist mean failure"?
You could look at all the Communist states that have ceased to exist, meaning to many, espec in the US, that Communism is a failure.
Fair enough. But I see Capitalism failing millions of people around the globe every frickin' day.
