Prager University: What Was the Cold War?

PragerU takes us back a generation or two to the days following World War II and suggests that while the two major players in the post-WWII world – the United States and the Soviet Union – did not come to direct blows, the many proxies of the Soviet Union created so many “hot spots” throughout the world that the results were more dead than in WWI and WWII combined, and then some. The basis of this cold war, as it was called, was nothing short of a battle between good and evil – freedom and totalitarianism.

Thanks to a number of events that culminated in the demise of the Soviet Union, the battles continue but in much less volatile size and numbers. The opponents of freedom continue to have a desire to test the metal of all freedom lovers. Do we have the stamina to remain resolute in fighting the despots of tomorrow? Time will tell.
