11/15/19 Eric Margolis on the Fall of Communism and the New Cold War

Scott talks to Eric Margolis about the history of the Soviet Union and its aftermath, in honor of the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall last week. Margolis reminds us what a mistake the Cold War was, as is the new Cold War that American neocons and neoliberals seem so intent on perpetuating. These people are not the Soviet Communists of yesteryear, and there is no reason we can’t get along with them. In fact, given the arsenal of nuclear weapons with the potential to end human life on the planet, there is every reason to be as friendly as we possibly can.
