One generation later, madmen have returned. They bring with them the madness of … M.A.D.
Again, absolutely all politics are reduced to White or Black. There is no gray. All peoples of our world again exist within a fateful clash between only two distinct ideologies, best summed-up as; Good vs. Evil. Right vs. Wrong. Life or… death?
A mere generation ago the colors of worldwide military polarization were then thrust upon the innocent by mad politicians with similar delusions of empire who, then, portrayed their geo-political expansionism in the easily understood colors of Red vs. Blue: East vs. West. The Cold War. The once Soviet empire vs. the ever-burgeoning U.S. contra-empire. The multitude of issues separating the two supposedly separate doctrines of Red or Blue ultimately distilled into one single, horrific doctrine of military nuclear madness that all on earth finally, by the necessity of self-preservation, truly understood.
To increase the perceived terror of their new doctrine of horror, these politicians announced an all-too-accurate acronym that translated their man-made horror into a simple definition no sane person could ignore. A doctrine of pure madness, one trumpeted by treasonous politicians and readily admitted to by their military leaders in the name of final “world victory.” M.A.D.
Mutually. Assured. Destruction.
