I respectfully disagree.
The truth is, the Soviet Union never really collapsed.
Just look at Russia today.
Start listening about 50 seconds in to this video...give it 2 minutes and you'll want to watch all 6 parts. Great weekend watching, might want to bookmark for later viewing.
This is the book they are talking about, "The Perestroika Deception," by Anatoliy Golitsyn.
Anatoliy Golitsyn exposes the devious Leninist strategy being pursued by supposed "former" communists under the facade of "reform" and "progress towards democracy". The objectives: "convergence" with the West, the creation of a new world order, and - ultimately - the establishment of a communist world government under the United Nations.
The Cold War is over and Communism is a non-issue for most Americans.
Communism is such a non-issue that Communist plans to undermine American society have proceeded for years virtually undetected and unhindered.
Recent events have aided this process, with President Obama's aggressive drive toward Socialism fitting neatly into decades of Communist strategy.
That long and patient strategy of deception was developed in the halls of the KGB, and dutifully carried out by Communist subversives in the United States. Prominent KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn has called it the "perestroika deception."
According to KGB documents published by Golitsyn, "perestroika" and "glasnost" were always intended from the beginning to serve as a media ploy to deceive the West into lowering its defenses to the point where Soviet goals could proceed unchallenged.
Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
