If more Americans would just watch more foreign films, the history and horrors of Communism would open up many eyes.

A Chinese drama directed by Chen Kaige that won Best Film at the Cannes Film Festival, "Farewell, My Concubine", accurately depicts how Communism changes even loyal friends and spouses out of fear.

"Camp 14: Total Control Zone" is a true story about Shin Dong-Huyk who was born inside a North Korean prison camp. The only world he knew was one of punishment, torture and abuse beyond imagination until he managed to escape at the age of 20.

More eyes need to be opened in this country. Tyranny always starts out as nonthreatening. As does government control and loyalty to the state.

It's always too late when enough people succomb to the propaganda.

Both these films are on Netflix.

Even less tyrannical regimes but total government control, such as Chavez's Venezuela, has an unpleasant ending.

He started out convincing enough people that he only cared about the poor too until the headlines read, "Venezuelans protest Chavez's power grabs that voters rejected."

You're right, we do get a pitiful return for our money. Look at all the dummies who graduate high school without understanding basic grammar and spelling, and end up posting here.

No more Aunt Mattie Pearl. Just Aunt Mattie - my registered name.

Feel free to steal any unregistered name you choose though. Eventually the regular posters will be on to you this time as well.

(In case some might be confused, Aunt Mattie is the original "carol" - just registered this time.)

Yes, I remember the first time I posted unregistered. It was a Tuesday, I think; I was alone in the house and naked to the waist. I was sweating. I don't know what possessed me to log into topix, some demon inside me I guess... anyway it asked me to pick a name, told me, in fact, so I chose... Ima Whore. It just popped out the same way I was surprised when I was able to fire a ping pong ball out of my anus and actually hit something. From then on it's been self-help books and twelve step programs as I fight to keep the unregistered demon under control... CURSES!

I strongly advise some on here to watch these films. At least those who think Communism is "cool". There are plenty more films like them.

Maybe you and the imposter can go on a "Dumbed Down Americans" tour together.

Unfortunately, you'd have a lot of people show up.

You don't mind if I call you Comrade Fenris from now on. I mean, you fit the profile of silencing the opposition at all costs so well.

Yes? No?
