I’ve met people from Albania, Romania and other countries who all pretty much say the same thing as Irina: “What are you people (Americans) doing? I left my home country to get away from everything you people are embracing. This is socialism, communism and none of you can see it because you embrace those who are doing to you by lying. You have no idea what you’re doing and I’m genuinely scared because there is no where else to go in the world to truly be free!”
If you are an educator and are not teaching kids about socialism, communism the old Soviet Empire etc you are the problem! We have an entire generation who knows nothing of the Cold War and WW2 is just touched on like any other conflict.
