The Marshall Plan
I have been talking about the Marshall Plan as one positive thing we did after a war. While reading up about the Cold War I see that the Marshall Plan was designed as an action against Soviet expansion in Europe. It was successful in quite a few ways.
What if today we did things for struggling countries without any political, economic or military motivation? Maybe we could rebuild some respect around the planet. Trying to be the world’s policeman, banker and arms dealer has not been very successful.
