God knows that I love me some historical perspectives here and there…….this article is a good piece of history about the Cold War and the “fight” against communism….
What explains the behavior of nations on the world stage? There is no science to guide us, no psychology of nation-states to elucidate the secrets of the national Ego, Super-Ego, and Id. Oh, there are theories galore: the realists, the structuralists, the Marxists, and more. Yet these are thin gruel these days, when all claims of predictability are open to challenge, and one cannot tell the exceptions from the rule. In today’s world, it often seems that there are no rules.
Or are there?
Let us look at the current madness, and its antecedents, and see if we can discern a pattern.
This is an excellent look at the Cold War and the decisions made…..if you like history then this is the article for you…..enjoy
