New York Times Obituary
In his column in the Washington Times (9/1/1991) Arnold celebrated the fall of the Soviet
Union, calling for a new world holiday,
World Freedom Day (article), on the anniversary
of the fall of the Berlin Wall:

“… the time has come for President Bush and the Congress to celebrate the end of the
cold war as we celebrate other historic days in American and even world history. Which
day should we select as the day of celebration?... On November 9, 1989 a hated symbol
of seventy years of Communist tyranny came to a squalid end. The fear of nuclear war
between the two superpowers was over. World peace seemed more assured than ever
before in modern history…Let us remember that this victory came without bloodshed,
without marching armies, without loss of life, without nuclear fallout. Unprecedented in
modern times, victor and vanquished together have acclaimed the end of the cold war.
Everybody won. Celebrating November 9 each year will be a warning to future tyrants that
tyranny, whether military as in Burma or ideological as in China and Cuba, has no future. “

A decade later, on Nov. 9, 2001, the White House under President George W. Bush
issued a proclamation calling for remembrance of
 World Freedom Day (proclamation)
on the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
