A friend asked me why did I leave my country and came to the United States. She also inquired about what Communism really is.
The following were my answers to my dear friend:
Communism is the antithesis of freedom. Individuals under a Communist system cannot make decisions by themselves, the controlled state make it for them.
Freedom of the press, assembly, traveling don't exist. You cannot change jobs or even move from one house to another without the government consent. It is the state that controls everything, including the private lives of the people. Your children are taken away from you, to be indoctrinated in the Marxist doctrine. You're a number, not a person. Without future, without any hope.
It was a huge mistake of many Americans, including ex President Bill Clinton and Janet Reno, when they supported the taking by force from his Florida family the child Elian Gonzalez and be returned to Cuba. Parents have no control of their children in a Communist society. Elian's mother gave her life to save her son from slavery, but it was ignored in the U.S. Precisely by ignorance.
Communism is oppression, misery, incarceration, death. Members of families are separated. Children are taught to denounce their parents, if they express discontent with the tyranny. Firing squads constantly kill dissidents. Prisons are chambers of torture.
People try desperate to leave a Communist country. In the past, they were shot jumping the Berlin Wall. Now they are devoured by sharks in the Florida Stretch.
There is no heart in Communism, no paternity. It is brutal, inhumane. It was Joseph Stalin. It is Kim Jon il. It is Castro. They are the law.
