Have powerful people assassinating opponents become more laid back?
Blatantly killing Khashoggi at a consulate, multiple reporters killed in Russia,
the Skripals poisoned in Salisbury, Epstein (presumably), Galizia (investigating Panama papers) killed in Malta etc.

Maybe I'm just forgetting all the assassinations during the Cold War.
I just seem to remember more subtle approaches when getting rid of opponents.

There's less of it now. But more and broader news coverage in general. I'm sure no one ever heard about 95% of the political assassinations in the Soviet Union.

Maybe some practical experience in the craft got lost in the quiet of the last 30 years?
Then again, the world's leading superpower has a habit of using killbots to explode people it don't like too much.
Subtlety really has gone out the window, eh?

Relative to the 90s yeah, I guess. Relative to the Cold War, no.

Relative to that time oxygen showed up in the atmosphere? Not really.
