The Commies are Coming
no this isn't a porn movie.

After the Soviet country was almost completely destroyed along with it's infrastructure, the american imperialists started a crazy conspiracy theory that lots of sheep believed in. The crazy conspiracy was that after their country was almost destroyed and as they were trying to recover from a huge war, the Soviet Union just got a hair in their ass to attempt to take over the world while rebuilding their country.

The CIA and most analysts knew that the Soviet Union couldn't afford a war or some grand world domination as the conspiracy implied. Ironically this made up threat was used to increase U.S. domination around the world and in a strange twist doing what they said they were trying to stop....a country trying to take over the world.

many people still believe that this conspiracy theory was true.

RE: The Commies are Coming
I think you could have commented in a better way, because it's a well known argument. I'm assuming you're saying it was in the financial interests of major industries to knowingly spur on ignorance and fear in order to "steal" trillions from the population:




No one can deny that, on a purely economic and greed level, the cold war was a major cash cow, or golden goose.

not only was it a major cash cow, it also set up U.S. placement around the world for future operations and better geopolitical positioning.

It also drained the U.S. economy in the long run.

RE: The Commies are Coming
I don't like using the "US" as an umbrella term. I understand that there are strong actors that lobby and drive government policy, and so the "US" as a whole. But I'd like to stick to specific actors. Because I know many US citizens that don't approve of any of these policies. So, perhaps use terms like "military industrial complex" or "corrupt politicians" or "lobbyists" instead of "US".

And it's not just the "US", it's similar actors in other countries.

Yes, it's considered hand in hand with McCarthyism these days and many mock it.
