"Until recently average American considered socialism and Nazism as something equally malignant as he should"
From the comment by some Russian immigrant on a chain letter showing the combined socialist/Trade- Union demonstration in LA.
In my first months of immigration to this country I was invited to the University to talk with the sovietologists.
- Congratulations, you have escaped from communism,- they greeted me cordially.
- I never saw any communist in Russia, - I said.
- What do you mean?
- I mean real communists, the ones who read Marx or wanted to change the world. Instead I saw a bunch of bastards in power. Those bastards populated the country more and more until the % of them became dangerous and brought instability. Then I left. I guess real communists still exist somewhere. As for the bustards, I am sure they are a plenty here too.
- You are right about that,- they said.
