“just six letters distinguish the words ‘communism’ and ‘computers,’ but the supplanting of one by the other has transformed the world”

The glorious thing about the end of history and the triumph of capitalism is the way that it relieves us of the obligation to know our history. There’s something exhilarating about students completely ignorant about their country twenty-years since – something that proves some point about something. And really, in the free market of ideas that is the high school classroom, communism exposes itself as really frigging boring compared to the vivid dramatics of liberalism and open markets, especially when they offer the possibility (unique to capitalism!) to spend twenty hours a weekend im-ing with friends in Thailand and suburban Chicago.

Thankfully, also, all of this is entirely representative of the mindset of Germany as a whole.
