From the JMBzine Vault – Aug 17, 2001

This post is from the JMBzine Blog Vault, which means it is a very old blog post that I wrote at a very different time of my life. My views on religion (I’m now a Humanistic Jew), politics (today I’m a democratic socialist), and many other subjects (LGBTQ+ inclusion, abortion rights, etc.) have drastically changed over the years, so please bear this in mind when reading this post.

Editorial note (2022): My views on Reagan have soured even more over the last 20 years, particularly as I have studied history from other perspectives. I was only in the baby-steps of that learning in 2001, as you can see from what I wrote at the time.

Ronald Reagan is one of the most amazing figures of recent history. I have many problems with his policies (both domestic and Latin American foreign policy), but despite it all I can’t help but be inspired by him. As a child in the 80’s, I remember when he stood in front of the Berlin Wall and said, “Mr. Gorbechav, tear down this wall!” I wonder if the wall would have fallen without his critical role in American history.
