I guess Pol Pot needs a marketing campaign. He must be pissed that everytime someone wants to invoke a madman they throw out hitler without even considering other options.

As for the topic at hand.. yes I believe that SS will be there at least for the next 30 years. I might not be but I believe SS will still be around in one form or another.
