5.0 out of 5 stars She tells us what we have forgotten
By Amazon Customer on October 7, 2020
Why did we fight so hard to create this country? What horrors did our forefathers try to save us from? We have lived the easy life for so long that to us, dictatorships and evil regimes are just shadows and rumors. Yeonmi has traveled a very dark road to bring us a message. That freedom is not free and the price we pay for losing that freedom is beyond the imagination of soft, well-fed Americans who have never been under the grinding boot of a despot. Yeonmi gives us a first-hand account from the dark side of human nature. Some strange part of human behavior makes us easy targets for sweet-sounding ideology. We willingly support the creation of a government that promises to fill our every need but ends up tapping every ounce of our productivity. If we forget these lessons, our grandchildren will be left scrabbling in the dirt for "frozen potatoes", their free will withered away with no awareness that a choice even exists.
