The Cold War was a great time for rock music. So yes, I miss it.
And you know what? There isn't *that* much difference between the Cold War era and the War on Terror era. The only difference is that during the Cold War you knew who the enemy was and that they had nukes to annihilate you with, while during the War on Terror you don't know where the enemy is coming from and where in the country they'll hit.
Either way, during both eras the government sought to gain power over the citizenry by making them afraid.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
At least back in the day, it was easier to explain to people the connection between social and economic liberty. For example, when Vietnam happened, the only corporation to be blamed was Dow Chemical for agent orange, and even that had nothing with our motive to go there.
Now, people want to have their cake and eat it too, and what's worse is you have religious and military people siding against free market people.
Oh, and social security wasn't going bust.
No. Why would anyone want to return to the distinct possibility that two superpowers would exchange nuclear weapons?
"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Not at all. Thanks to the internet and globalization, we now have more peace, more prosperity, less hyper-nationalism and no longer do the world power use other nations as pawns in a global chess game (well, mostly). I approach the post-Col War era of globalization with optimism and am ready to see what the world can do we when compete peacefully, with less emphasis on military expansion and more of the mutually beneficial notion of free trade between nations.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
