Years ago, I knew a guy who had escaped Hungary at about age 16.

He said that when they were invaded, the soldiers went to the police stations & got the lists of all the registered guns.

The soldiers then went to those houses first & confiscated the guns.

Some people got away before the soldiers came & that was the nucleus of the resistance.

He was a pretty happy guy——But when he spoke of what had happened in his home country, his faced changed completely.

Whoa – that comment really struck a cord in me.

An old friend of mine was the exact same way, except he was Vietnamese.

Isn't it interesting how people have that reaction to the oppression of Socialism?
