This is not the first warning.

“Western thinking has become conservative:
the world situation should stay as it is at any cost;
there should be no changes. ....
The communist regime in the East could stand and grow due to the enthusiastic support
from an enormous number of Western intellectuals who felt a kinship and refused to see
communism's crimes. And when they no longer could do so, they tried to justify them. In
our Eastern countries, communism has suffered a complete ideological defeat; it is zero
and less than zero. But Western intellectuals still look at it with interest and with
empathy, and this is precisely what makes it so immensely difficult for the West to
withstand the East.”

[Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn at the Commencement, 8 June 1978, Harvard University]

They’ve already taken over, it’s just that some of us are not on board!

What is happening is that many conservatives have given up all conservative beliefs, about Communist China.

That is the critical difference now.

How many right here on FR, are in favor of sending all US industry directly to the Chicoms?

Seriously. How much stuff do you see every single day, made in China?

China is the difference. Until conservatives realize the terrible danger we are putting America in, by building up a communist nation 4 times our population.

Turn this around now.

Not soon. Now.

Burt, a quiet and thoughtful man brings it home in this interview by David Knight. Burt is right, we are turning Communist as others have also warned us about.

"What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, polkers, or whatever else was at hand?"

From:'The Gulag Archipelago' by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
