The years ahead will be great ones for our country, for the cause of freedom and the spread of civilization. The West will not contain Communism, it will transcend Communism. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written. 我们的国家(美国)因为自由和传播文明,在未来数年必将成为伟大的国家。西方不会有共产主义,但将超越共产主义。我们并不想去谴责它,只会为人类历史曾被写下最后一页怪异的章节而心生悲悯。 ——罗纳德·里根
