D-Day was framed as a crusade of liberal democracies by Eisenhower in his letter to the soldiers. And for that, I am glad. (Nevermind the tacit alliance with the authoritarian Soviets, but D-Day of course, didn't involve them).

I'll throw my lot into a liberal democracy with all its flaws any day thanhave only one view of what is correct (which itself can vary on the whims of several individuals, if history is a reference) imposed from the top by an authoritarian state.
