Joseph Stalin murdered vastly more people than Hitler and the Soviet Union kept its citizens prisoner behind the iron curtain. Yet more than 20 years after its fall, we have fools trying to pimp Communism as the better society. And networks are stupid enough to air such propaganda. The Soviets took over smaller countries and turned them into oppressive totalitarian states. East Germany was so badly Germans would risk being shot trying to escape. The Berlin Wall was created to keep them from escaping from this hell. Eventually it all collapsed and now China, Russia and even Cuba are moving toward market economies, yet statists will never admin they’re wrong. Even when their “model society” failed and murdered millions, they still try to sell it as the better way.
The Soviets weren’t about peace. They instigated wars. They conquered countries. They tried to destroy ours through subversion. And we still see people trying to carry on their work as this film shows. 1984 was written by George Orwell as a critique of Stalin. And Orwell was a socialist.
Until people learn that big government steals people’s liberties and freedoms will will never have true peace and freedom.
