America was founded upon the ideas of limited government and individual liberty. These values and many related to them gave rise to the most independent, prosperous nation in history. Today, as those values decline, so too does America and her standard of living.
How do we know America continues to inch closer to the same dystopian fate befallen upon countless countries in the past? Simple: individuals who have lived through such dystopias note the parallels between what’s happening in America now, and what happened in their home countries then.
One such individual is Agustin Blazquez, Cuban-American filmmaker. In a recent interview with The Daily Caller, Blazquez expressed his concern about the rise of socialist candidates such as Bernie Sanders:
” For Blazquez, watching American youth embrace avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, strikes him as “absurd.” It is the end result, he says, of the cultural marxist education and media propaganda that has anesthetized too many Americans who do not defend the values that made America exceptional. “

It does come as a shock to see socialism being embraced with open arms. It seems people have forgotten the millions upon millions of victims of tyrannical socialist regimes throughout history. They seem to assume they will be immune, that somehow this time will be different, and this government will be nice to them, unlike every other force- backed government throughout all of human history.
Communism has been responsible for more death and destruction than anything else in recent history. The 20th century, for example, saw about 94 million murdered under communist/socialist regimes.
And it doesn’t matter what we call it – communism, fascism, socialism, or any other “ISM”…different terms for centralized control.
Of course, the term “socialism” gets used more today, in order to avoid the disastrous past the word “communism” conjures within the mind. A time will come when no words will suffice – everyone will see through this madness and demand their freedom back.
As Patrick Henry once said, “Give me liberty, or give me death!”
The masses will issue a similar declaration in the near future. In many ways around the world, they already have begun to do so.
