It was clear that the political orientations that the "brat pack" held were altered by just a couple of weeks in the U.S.S.R. Such shallowness reinforces the flighty, uncommitted image of affluent child actors. It is unfortunate that their influence will always outweigh their merit. But since they enjoy kissing airport Tarmac, I suggest they spend a couple of weeks in Rangoon, Jakarta or Calcutta (to see how most of the world lives) and then fly to Moscow. I am sure they will find socialist Tarmac a similar flavor to our American variety.
