The first video is a cartoon that uses humor to teach about the very real dangers of communism, as well as the benefits provided by free markets. Jessica is right on the money too, saying:
This Cartoon predicts the future 50 years ago. This could have been made yesterday! You have to watch this!
I agree with Digital Publius as well, this cartoon could have a significant positive impact if picked up by enough people and going "virus!"
I hope that we can make this animated gem go viral, so that the message it's creators endeavored to spread, reaches an audience far larger than they could have imagined.
The second video is a little more on the disturbing side ... but a video you should indubitably see!
In it, former KGB operative Yuri Bezmenov talks about Russian ideological subversion, or psychological warfare. He explains how through a deliberate process of destroying values, destabilizing the economy, and aggravating crisis, America has gone from a mostly conservative/libertarian nation, to the Marxist socialism we are witnessing today. Ironically, the interview took place in 1984.
It's frightening when you consider how prophetic his words have become, yet as Digital Publius notes, it certainly helps to make sense of some things.
Bezmenov is particularly illuminating when you reflect on the many frustrating discussions you suffer through with liberals who refuse to accept demonstrable evidence that contradicts their kooky utopian, sometimes dangerous, often frightening ideas.
