The evils of socialism (40) list  1 of 2

A Listmania! list by M. Heiss (USA)
The list author says: "When the wall fell in 1989, the word was finally out. It was on the lips of every person who ventured from the former East to the West. They all said it, in shock, with eyes wide open: "They lied to us." Socialism was not glorious and uplifting; it was oppressive and deceitful. And murderous.

Somehow, the evil of socialism has been allowed to be forgotten. But I do not forget."
