Writer's Block: Day of German Unity

It’s the Day of German Unity, marking the 1990 reunification of East and West Germany. In our current period of global instability, do you ever feel nostalgic for the seeming simplicity of the Cold War?
I don't suppose that many of U.S. citizens would agree on that 'seeming simplicity' part anyway, but if I add my words-- it really was uneasy to live in a U.S.-alley country which is geographically closer to the nation of 'imaginary enemy' back then. I'd say that was nothing to feel nostalgic, ever.
