Re: [s-d] RFC: War

A quote:

"Back then, though, we could both hear the Germans saying that America
would now have to do what they had been doing, which was to fight the
godless Communists.

We replied that we didn't think so. We expected the USSR to try to
become more like the USA, with freedom of speech and religion, and
fair trials and honestly elected officials, and so on. We, in turn,
would try to do what they claimed to be doing, which was to distribute
goods and services and opportunities more fairly: 'From each according
to his abilities, to each according to his needs.'

That sort of thing."
