Default Re: If Communism is the plan, why was it opposed by the US during the cold war?

No, it's unnecessary and completely antithetical to Western values. The Hegelian dialectic is the basis of all Communist thought..

The poster who started this thread talks about how the US "fought" the USSR in the Cold War, but remember that before 1945, the US and USSR were actually pretty darn good buddies (much to the chagrin of true lovers of liberty), even to the point where Harry Dexter White (U.S. Treasury under FDR) was smuggling U.S. Treasury plates into the USSR so that the Soviets could counterfeit U.S. dollars..

Of course, some would call that Communist treason, emanating from the FDR White House.......

Also, the U.S. today (and for a long time, certainly most of the Cold War) has been -- strictly speaking -- a Communist Nation. We implement all 10 planks of Marx' Communist Manifesto. By definition, that would make the U.S. a Communist nation...

something to think about.. :-?
