To Kinsley's mind at the time, the debate showed that each side agreed on two things and disagreed on two things: agreed that remarkable change was occurring behind the Iron Curtain, and agreed that those changes would not transform the USSR into a democracy like the US, disagreed how far those changes would go and whether they were reversible, and disagreed on where the line between cold war and peace should be drawn. For today's viewer, however, there are two things clear to us that were not clear to them: that communications technology was not immutably able to bring about informational and political freedom, and that which we once defined as a cold war between east and west, as well as its thaw, was in fact part of a longer cycle of Russian history (Color, 1989, 1 Hour 58 Minutes).
