In High School, a friend had a shortwave radio. He listened to Radio Moscow to understand the sort of drivel they were putting out. On the 20th anniversary of VE Day, Radio Moscow had an essay contest on “Why the Soviet Union Was Able to Defeat Nazism”. My friend wrote back that the Soviet contribution was made possible by Lend-Lease and the United States providing a second front via the Normandy invasion. The propaganda ministry was apparently almost apoplectic and actually wrote him back to “correct” him.
Kinda like “O” going to Iowas to sell a bill that has already been turned into law. You just have to ask “why?” if the original premise is so sound.
