Abraham Lincoln was deeply involved in overall strategy and in day-to-day operations during the American Civil War, 1861–1865; historians have given Lincoln high praise for his strategic sense and his ability to select and encourage commanders such as Ulysses S. Grant.[39] ... Harry S. Truman believed in a high amount of civilian leadership of the military, making many tactical and policy decisions based on the recommendations of his advisors— including the decision to use nuclear weapons on Japan, to commit American forces in the Korean War, and to terminate Douglas MacArthur from his command.[42]

To be honest, a proper green card immigrant is still preferable than H1-B, because a H1-B can be blackmailed with deportation by his employer. A green card holding immigrant is more likely to stand up for his rights than an H1-B (because the latter ties him to one specific employer).

CS culture is American male nerd culture. It's the culture of 20th century sci-fi, Dungeons and Dragons, video games, popular science, memorising digits of pi, tech gadgets, of course computers and coding.

Intrestingly most of my CS profs were unfamiliar with that culture. Maybe because they weren't Americans.
