    We need to learn the lessons of the 20th century, but the essential ones, not just the ideological ones. The excesses of right and left are the excesses of human capacities. There are plenty of human capacities for good, constructive existence and there are those that contribute only to nihilism.
    We need honest, forthright confrontation with the proven areas of psychology and earnest, clear pursuits of what remains to discover and prove.
    As long as we are distracted by insisting certain ideas are "evil", the longer it will take us to arrive at understanding that thinking, on the part of everyone, requires informed analysis.

    Trump also criticized Gorbachev for not being firm enough.



    If he had any respect for the demonstrators, which he doesn't, he wouldn't call their demonstration a "riot".

    I wonder how long they would last in even a ‘sort of’ communist country.
