Defrosting The Cold War

art work vintage advertising illustration in a collage about Cold war America

The Cold War was a bone-chilling time.

While Americas can-do confidence offered us a sugar frosted promises of a future filled with frost-free fun and abundance, that giddy optimism co-existed with the very real fear of nuclear annihilation.

In the 1950s and ’60s most Americans assumed the US and the Soviets stood at all times on the brink of nuclear war.

I would catch a Cold war chill that I could never quite shake.
