Quote of the day—Brad R. Torgersen

Sarah Hoyt — born in Portugal, naturalized to the U.S. — has seen this kind of thing before. It’s the old Stalinist-Marxist mentality which Sarah got to see up close and personal. It’s the mentality my former boss (who was a refugee from Soviet-era Poland) knew all too well, too. Frankly, any time I talk about the 21st century American fascination with political correctness, refugees from the Marxist countries recognize it instantly: the collective effort to control and dictate what is and is not permissible to say, or to think, or to feel, including who you can and cannot associate with; lest you be hauled before the commissars to be tried for guilt-by-association.

Fear is their weapon.

[Solzhenitsyn has written about this too.

This mindset must not be allowed to dominate politics. The body count racked up by this mindset during the 20th century was in the hundreds of millions. We must prevent a repeat performance in the 21st century.

  1. I’ve worked with quite a few folks from former com bloc countries, they recognize this too, one has told me that what they (politicians) are trying to do is very dangerous.

  2. A friend of mine left Czechoslovakia 30 years ago for the United States, and now lives in the rural west. He regularly tells those of us that think we’re moderately ready for the future that we know essentially nothing. His family owns (owned?) an estate for something like 600 years; it has three or four fully stocked bunkers on it that he knows of, and could well have others he doesn’t know about. That’s the sort of thing you apparently learn to do when a war comes across your backyard every couple decades.
