Those who treat the Cold War as a relic of the past ignore a salient fact: Communist regimes still exist, sometimes with nukes but always with human rights violations.
To get an idea of why they linger, it is helpful to see how they came into being. They were mostly established by the mother of all communist dictatorships, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). In World War II, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sought to placate wartime ally Josef Stalin, dictator of the USSR in every manner possible, particularly at the wartime conferences attended by the Allied leaders in Teheran and Yalta with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
From generous gifts of money and guns through Lend-Lease down to giving the man of steel, the literal translation of Stalins name, the green light to annex whatever territory he cared to and the people who lived on it, Roosevelt placed no ceiling on Americas willingness to accede to Stalinist demands.
In doing so, he was aided and abetted by a cadre of White House advisors and officials, some of whom turned out to be communists. M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein show in their new book Stalins Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelts Government, that, for one thing, Alger Hiss virtually ran the Yalta conference.
Evans and Romerstein obtained copies of the papers of FDRs Secretary of State, Edward Stettinius from the University of Virginia, which shows that he relied heavily on Hiss throughout the conference, and, for that matter, much of his time on the job.
