  •  The idea the WE destroyed the USSR (5+ / 0-)

    is kind of a question-begging assumption. Not necessarily that the US had zilch to do with it, but I believe that US foreign policy is given far too much credit for it. Especially the idea that St. Ronnie won us the Cold War.

    Also, "socialism is bad because the USSR is dead and that's because of us" is another example of winners getting to write the history books, or, that might makes right. Not that the Soviet Union was righteous by any stretch, but the depravity of that state doesn't make us saints either.

    liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
