Married a girl from Yoshkar-0la I did, and she doesn't miss it much but she doesn't have many kind words for the US health care "system" or education... the socialism was a mixed bag. The real problem was the authoritarians who were running and looting the place in the name of socialism.

Russia isn't IMHO, that much better under capitalism than under socialism, but it is a lot better under democracy than autocracy.

I reckon it is important not to confuse economic systems and political control any more than you have to.
