Yu don no nuffin' about "X", do you? That's why you thought you could fob off a Wikipedia listing of messrs. X, like a student handing in an essay he downloaded off the internet. Or like an asshole who studies socialism in a dictionary.
How do you do it, Pooper? How can you be so intellectually inert and still breath?
Don't kid yourself, Pooper, this is no small thing. The Cold War was one of the big ones. It affected the whole of our society and the whole world, and we will be working through its consequences and ramifications for another generation at least. Probably for the rest of this century. And George F. Kennan, in the essay he wrote as "X", was the architect of the West's strategy in that war.
But you did not know that. I guess you were too busy with your invisible friends to read a book on the subject. So, when I gave you "X", you gave me...comic book characters.
Yes, folks, this man is teaching teachers. And we wonder why our schools are sinking into the ground.
It occurs to me that we should be grateful to Pooper Scooper for giving us a lovely object lesson in why one cannot study the Cold War in Wikipedia, or study socialism in a dictionary. When Pooper put "Mr. X" into Wikipedia, he got a listing that was comprehensive, to be sure, but that did not distinguish between the great and the small, the important and the trivial. From a Wikipedia listing, Pooper had no way of telling that Kennan was a tad more important that a Marvel comic book. He had to hope that we could not tell, either.
