Historically speaking, the Cold War was a great ideological confrontation. Western liberalism vs Soviet communism. According to Joe Biden the great geopolitical struggle of our time is democracy vs autocracy. For Biden we are in another great ideological struggle. But there is a difference: the west, particularly the U.S. is the only ideological actor.

  2. How are you Lo,

    There certainly have been a lot of slow news days in the last 12 months.. (Sarcasm) Haha.. One became pleasantly surprised to see Rick Rozoff on this discussion program.. After going somewhat into the background for a considerable length of time, his (and others) important and knowledgeable voice(s) are needed to step up & forward in these continuing very precarious times..

    Peace.

    • Hi Jerry, so nice to hear from you. Hope you’ve been well, too.

      Yes, I agree it was a pleasant surprise to hear from Rick Rozoff in today’s video along with Bruce and David. All three are most knowledgeable, as you wrote. We indeed do need to hear their voices.
