New Re: From the Left, I'm Mike Moffitt.
mmoffitt posts:

//I suspect that there are two groups who have suffered more than any other as a consequence of the demise of the USSR: the Russian people and the United States. Yes, the entire country. We are virtually rudderless without the Soviet Union.//

I agree. Speaking as a child of the cold war (b. 1952) I believe that the moral superiority of the USA (such as it was) in the postwar years absolutely relied on the existence of the USSR as a countervailing force: without them there's no one whose sins are dense enough to make our side of the bipolar moral seesaw rise toward the sky.

cordially,

"Die Welt ist alles, was der Fall ist."
New You'd like Taosim.
A chapter from the Tao Te Ching reads in part:

"Under heaven, all can know beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness. All can know Good as Good only because there is Evil."
