We must protect our way of life

My neighbor who is an old man who comes from Kazakhstan during the reign of Stalin spoke to me one day about when he was a child in school and took a crayon and scribbled on Stalin’s picture hanging in the classroom. A tear dimmed his eyes as he said that his parents were put in jail because of the incident.

If we, the populace, become complacent and politically illiterate and let our administration run amuck then the day will come when we too may be obliged to clap exuberantly and sing praises upon the appearance of our commander-in-chief and becoming puppets to the whim of those in power!
