Remembering the Victims of Communism

On this historic anniversary, the folks at Reason TV have produced a great four minute piece on the victims of Communism. I highlight this because we had so many callers today who lived under or saw first hand life under a socialist dictatorship. People like Kris and Erica and Susan (who lived in West Germany) knew first hand what is was like.

But as Reason TV points out, these people and their lives and their sacrifices are too often forgotten. And today many would even like to flush it all down the memory hole.

And as we look back on that event, we have to resolve, that never again that peoples and nations will allow so evil a tyranny to terrorize the world.

Author and historian Lee Edwards

Yes some, like the New York Times and the Boston Globe, would like to carry on the intellectual debate about what brought the wall down. But after watching this video I am sure you will agree, it was tyranny itself and a people yearning to be free, backed by the world’s defender of freedom, and led by a strong and resolute President that brought down this wall.

Please watch … and never, ever, forget.

    Did Gorbachev have something to do with all of this? Angela Merkel had him at the celebrations of the fall of the Wall for some reason.
