the one image you have about waiting in line invalidates your entire argument. in one picture, people are waiting for bread because there are food shortages due to system of central planning. on the other people are waiting outside for the release of the latest iphone so they can be the first people to have such a luxury good that nobody in a communist nation such as the ussr had. those are 2 entirely different situations. false equivalence fallacy. one is necessity, the other is choice.
>Yes so behind that until the Manned moon landings the USSR's Space achievements were ahead of the USAs
i did say for the most part. both sides space program was based on german science and scientists captured in ww2. us still beat ussr to the moon, stealth aircraft, higher standard of living (no bread shortage) etc.
>The USA and UK took 100 years of industrialization
thats not true. but you need to understand that the UK INVENTED the industrial revolution. other nations that industrialized later just aquired the existing technology. make sure you thank UK, they invented it all.
also JSYK you should also understand that the industrial revolution in capitalist countries, despite the living and working conditions (nobody ever had done this yet) resulted in the greatest increase in wealth in human history.
>the Soviet Union had a Human Development Index of 0.920
according to who? the ussr? higher HDI than america despite people standing in breadlines, not having cars or vcr players? in 1990 americans were using the internet and computers. apple and microsoft were a thing.
