Here are 10 symptoms of Sovietism. Ask yourself whether we are headed down this same road to perdition.
1) There was no escape from ideological indoctrination—anywhere.
2) The Soviets fused their press with the government.
3) The Soviets surveillance state enlisted apparatchiks and lackeys to ferret out dissidents.
4) The Soviets educational system sought not to enlighten, but to indoctrinate in proper government-approved thoughts.
5) The official Soviets was run by a pampered elite, exempt from the ramifications of its own radical socialist ideologies.
6) The Soviets mastered the rewriting and airbrushing away of history to fabricate present reality.
7) The Soviets created a climate of fear and rewarded stool pigeons to root and rat out all potential enemies of the people.
8) Soviets law, state prosecutors, and courts were weaponized according to ideology.
9) The Soviets doled out prizes on the basis of correct Soviet thought.
10) The Soviets offered no apologies for extinguishing freedom. Instead, they boasted they were advocates of equity, champions of the underclass, enemies of privilege, and therefore could terminate anyone or anything they pleased.
Someone please explain how that is different from the current Democratic Party.
Exchange Woke and Woke-ist for Soviet. They are exactly the same.
