How the Left Won the Cold War

This is an old article (dating from 2010) by Paul Gottfried but still well worth reading, How the Left Won the Cold War.

Gottfried provides a fascinating perspective on the Cold War, arguing that, “The Soviets left the stage of History after a more radical Left had taken over.” Gottfried also chronicles the decay of “conservatism” as it came increasingly to embrace cultural marxism and he believes this started happening in the 1960s.
He also points out that what passes for leftism today bears no resemblance whatsoever to leftism as it was understood prior to the 1960s, and that similarly what passes for conservatism today bears no resemblance whatsoever to conservatism as it was understood prior to the 1960s.
