Even though the Cold War is over between Russia and the U.S., there are other "cold wars" throughout the world that make this allegory perpetually relevant. As long as there is conflict among nations, there will be relevance. You can use the Middle East, Iraq, Afghanistan, the African countries, etc. --- all examples of conflict between nations that fit the allegory in Bradbury's short story.

I agree with the above post. The underlying conflict behind the Cold War was paranoia and an obsession with control. This is present in many situations today. While the allegory of the Cold War might have passed, the situation of government control and an obsession with enemies is still quite valid. Many times, wars are waged out of fear of the other and the desire to consolidate power. As long as this is present, Bradbury's allegory is quite valid.
