"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child." -Cicero
Unfortunately, with every election cycle, a growing percentage of the electorate know nothing of socialism's evil because of when they were born, when their teachers were born, and because of the gaslighting that has shut down all critical thought.
Give your kids a crash lesson in the evils of communism at the "Communism at 'Peace'" website. Show them that even revered groups such as gays, native Americans (yes, native Americans), and unions were crushed under communism's thumb.
Or if they have time for a slightly longer course, send them to Bryan Caplan's Museum of Communism; or R.J. Rummel's facts on democide.
We have just a few weeks to fight a lot of ignorance. Through BLM and Antifa, we see that Marx is still the head of the serpent.
There’s only America to blame, not a lack of communist countries to point out.
NK would be a great course on the disaster that communism is.
Venezuela is perfect for showing socialism’s failures.
China has a million people in concentration camps. At least a million. That’s not a secret or a guess.
Africa has many great examples of dictators and of democracies fighting for their lives against warlords/muslims.
The state of many muslim countries and the plight of Christians and women and gays in those countries would make a dozen great courses.
No the world has not gotten better, with no glaring examples of the horrors of communism, socialism and hatred of western values.
America has rotted from within like a bad apple.
And Trump is doing his best to reverse the course.
He is trying to introduce a history curriculum that is Pro Us, among other things.
Reeducation is our only chance at this point.
We need to take it.

I must confess that I never before heard that quote, which saddens me a little because I’ve had countless opportunities to put it to good use! Thanks for sharing it. Confirms for me once again the great value of being an active FReeper!
Great comments. Thanks for posting them!
If every there was an FR article that gets to the heart of all that’s wrong with our country in the time we live, it is this one. Thanks a million for posting it!
Those who do not know history, are doomed to repeat it.
