Now of course I am not saying that the Cold War was a great thing but that it created a sense of history. In the nineties we thought, to use the words of Fu*uyama (holy frak, the frakkin' censor does not allow me to write out his name) , that we are at the "end of history" and this influenced cultural life. Gee, I grew up in the nineties and with all this electronic dancehouse crap we literally reached the end of the world.
Good points.
