IF THE "GREATEST GENERATION" SAVED THE WORLD, WHY HAVE WE LOST SO MUCH? | 2003-11-08
Every liberal says that the Greatest Generation "saved the world." Bill Clinton says that all the time.
When the Greatest Generation took over, Germany and Russia were dictatorships.
When the Greatest Generation ceased to control things, about 1980, totalitarians ruled a third of the human race.
Liberals love the Greatest Generation because it got rid of the rightist extremists like Hitler and Mussolini and gave a third of the world to their beloved Peace-Loving People's Democratic Republics.
Brokaw thinks that's wonderful. Clinton thinks that's wonderful.
I don't think that's wonderful.
No decent person would say that isn't wonderful.
Which leaves it up to me.
