Fascinating to think how different things would be... The Apollo programme would doubtless have stopped and the USSR would have won the space race. In fact, the Soviet bloc would have become the dominant force in the World as nobody, not even their own people, would trust the US and the Cold War may never have happened. On the other hand, would medical and social advances have progressed more rapidly? Any Sociologists care to comment?

Incredible.

A real fascinating 'what if?'.

One of the main reasons why the people of the Eastern Bloc wanted revolution and to overturn the murderous dictators was due to The West being better. The need to hide the truth about The West and to stop people escaping was what a major cause of the oppression and suppression.

Had The West not been better, or such an enemy, who knows what may have happened.

Those wanting to risk life and death to head west obviously perceived it to be so.

And it was that impression that the west was desperate to keep up - that the grass was very much greener. Let's be honest - it was. Most of the time.
