“What’s so wrong with Communism?”
They used to say, “He is not a Communist!” Now they say, “What’s so wrong with Communism?”
I got this email from my 28 year old friend “Al” yesterday:
We aren’t living in the 1950’s anymore. Why is there a fear of the communist bogeyman? Isn’t creating and perpetuating this fear just another form of propaganda?
Obviously, this boy has been brainwashed. I was so frustrated a cartoon cyclone came out of my head and ears. Then I wrote him back:
We aren’t living in the 1950′s anymore…so, suddenly communism works?! Which country is it working in?! (I wanted to say ‘you idiot!’) North Korea, Russia, Cuba? Are people flocking there to live? Risking their lives on rafts to get there?
The liberal Miami Herald today had an article about tourists visiting Cuba. They hated to admit that the place is a falling apart poverty stricken mess. They didn’t use the “c” word of course to explain why it suddenly went bad when Castro took over. All they would offer was, “…There’s no way tourism alone can prop up a system so enfeebled by the weight of government bureaucracy, market controls and limits on personal freedoms.”
“…a system enfeebled by the weight of government bureaucracy, market controls and limits on personal freedoms…” sounds like the Obama administration.
28 year old – do you want America to look like Cuba? Than stop defending communism!
The “utopia” of communism killed 94 million, according to The Black Book of Communism.
