Few people really had the capacity to take on the problem of Communism and totalitarianism. JFK was not one of them. It took enormous sacrifice to contain Communism and totalitarianism. We were terribly, terribly lucky that the Nazis and the Soviet Union ended up fighting each other. Yes we were lucky that the Soviet Union carried the lions share of the burden of defeating the German army, but we were also luck that the Nazi war machine inflicted such terrible, terrible damage on the Soviet Union. We were lucky that the Soviet Union didn't collapse in the summer of 1941, that would have been catastrophic, but it would have been equally catastrophic if the Nazis had collapsed in the summer of 41.
Communism didn't just contain itself. It required herculean efforts to contain Communism until the end of the eighties, to contain, savagely wound it and it exhaust it, long enough to allow the Soviet Union to collapse from within. The pathetic fantasy of the anti fascist war was perhaps near unavoidable, but it left us with a terrible legacy. The demonisation of Nazism, German nationalism and by implication of course all WIG (White Infidel Gentile) nationalisms was again maybe near unavoidable, but left us with a terrible toxic legacy.
JFK failed in his primary duty as leader of the free world to contain and where possible turn back the totalitarian communist advance, and he invented the moon landing programme to cover it up. He admitted himself he had no interest in space. What a pathetic, cretinous waste of money the Moon landings were. Peoples interest in the Moon landings lasted for less than a year, once they had arrived.
While I support the impeachment of Salvador Allende, no executive Presidencies, proportional representation and short fixed term parliaments would have been preferable.
