Secondarily, while all of this is occurring you just know that Russia and China are drawing up the maps of how they'll spit up what's left.

Which is another reason for the people in charge to back off. Resistance doesn't have to win so much as it has to make continuing along the same path "not worth it". Ireland didn't defeat the British Empire. They just made themselves a bigger bother than they're worth.
I believe that historically, its been revolutions in other countries that have kept our elites in check. Communism sucked for the people who had to live under it. But it was great for us as Americans. The ruling class had something to fear and curbed some of their excesses as a result. Shortly after the commies went under, they started consolodating all the wealth again. The best thing that could happen for us would be for some western european country to elect or otherwise install a communist.
