Cold War Rhetoric

When Russia invaded Ukraine, killed thousands of people, and created a million of internal refugees in Ukraine, the rare person who tried to mention these events in public was sternly exhorted to abstain from promoting the Cold War rhetoric. People would positively ooze contempt and superiority for the poor fools they considered to be in the grip of Cold War mentality.

These same people are today indulging in the most outlandish feats of Cold War rhetoric over trivial, childish things that most definitely didn’t result in the deaths of thousands and a displacement of a million. Nobody seems to claim these childish things resulted in anything at all. But somehow, Cold War rhetoric is now very much ok.
