It’s all in the definitions. I used “Cold War” in the more conventional sense of a struggle against Communism, not socialism per se. And I see more similarities between America in 2018 and the pre-Progressive America of the late 1800s than with the Bolsheviks, but I do not pretend to any great expertise on this. Thank you for your comment!
