The New York Times wants you to know that, regardless of our new Cold War, things are STILL better. Or at least, that is what I am guessing they want you to know, because I certainly can't think of another reason to gloat about the fall of Communism right now.

Certainly I know it must have been wonderful, the liberation of personal desire from the shackles of (un)democratic societies. My cynicism only comes from the fact that the world we are living in right now is what that liberation wrought.

(Oh and yeah um it's not like, uh, those desires that were liberated were like, you know, ones biologically intrinsic to, uh, humans, and all, so yeah, like, freedom?)
