    Some of my family used to live in the USSR, and still tell stories about life there. If that first moron (and he is) had any idea about what life was actually like, rather than spouting off abstract theories, he'd change his tune quickly. I don't think most "Occupiers" are advocating Soviet communism, but I know some of them are. They're just ignorant, like that second guy. Good to see a former Soviet setting them straight. We don't need that kind of thinking here.

    "Here, he continues giving history lessons to a man who considers Vladimir Lenin ,an idol of his."

    Anyone who considers Lenin a hero is immediately cast into the "douche-bag" class of ignorants.

    The sad part of this thread is that you won't see many liberals comment upon it or view the video. I wish this guy could get on national television and debate any and all "Intellectuals" who have the delusion that socialism can work here.

    The single biggest reason the the US of A is the most desired place to live in the world is because of our system.....ALL of it.

    Soviet man should have explained how wonderful life was under Tsar rule was. That would have gotten to the kid. Then kid could have said, "Well, at least Lenin wasn't as bad as Stalin!" Just sayin, the entire history of Russia was a cluster-fu(% from 1880 until about 1965 and now it's being run by gangsters and pimps...just like good old days, no?

    You could just leave the statement at that. There are few times in Russia's history that it was good to be living in Russia. Why anyone would look to Russia for inspiration on how to run a country is beyond me.

    1965-1991 wasn't so hot either. In fact, the standard of living turned to complete **** during the 1980s.

    Unbelievable, eh? That's kind of like saying, "yeah, that German army was something in the early 1940s. By the way, who the hell is Hitler?"

    The early days of the USSR were extremely bloody. Stalin didn't start the bloodletting, not by a long shot. What's scary is how these ignorant people gain traction among those even more ignorant than they are. Then again, since history apparently isn't all that important anymore, people aren't really interested in getting the tools they need to avoid throwing their weight behind those who would repeat the mistakes of the past.
