The Legacy of Communism

You now live in a pre-communist US. 

Shouldn't you take an 1:15 out of your day to hear this panel discussion on Communism: Past and Future?

The first speaker (at the table) was part of CIA's N. Korea desk.  He gives a good summary to what is happening in N. Korea today.

The second speaker explains what Russia should have done after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.  Notice he has a hard time discussing Stalinism without referencing current events here in the US....

Speaker #3 discusses the hypocracy of passing judgement on some dictators when they are silent on Fidel, the never ending enchantment with Che, and the revision of communist history.

Speaker #4 rambles on about the wealth disparity in China.  We were not impressed with his presentation.
