I miss the communists

When I was a kid, the world was scary but clear: we hated the communists and felt jeopardised by their armies. The good ones were the Americans, the bad ones the Reds, who spied on their citizens, killed millions of them, had a horrible economic system. It was not difficult to make an opinion and there were numerous examples of glorified dissidents who happily made it to the West. 

Maybe because this threat disappeared, free reeling capitalism mixed with technology became post capitalism, where wars are fought over the markets or the internet, where power is not exercised by force but by seduction. We lost sight of our enemies, cannot name them anymore, and we see them everywhere. In parallel, academic studies show that never had so few people on earth died a violent death.
