1. Another one to add to my list....

I'm adding Dudziak's,Cold War Civil Rights, to my reading list. I completely missed the Atlantic article.....my loss. It really is Kind of the perfect article for this time. (See what I did, there? LOL!)

From the last paragraph:

The good news, though, is that America can do things to disarm the propaganda. In the 1950s and 60s, for example, this was one of the reasons that American presidents pushed through various civil rights victories, culminating in the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. This time, Americans can stop blaming the Russians and look at ourselves for what we do to fan the flames—to a far greater extent than the Russians ever could or do.

I'm keeping this as a favorite for future debates! Thanks for another great post, Kind of Blue!
