In a book titled How We Survived Communism and Even Laughed, Slavenka Drakulić wrote, “in the West today ‘the end of communism’ has become a stock phrase, a truism, a common expression … to indicate the current state of things in Eastern Europe.” We mustn’t be naive about the fall of communism, she says. “It sounds marvelous when you hear it in political speeches or read it in the newspapers,” Drakulić admits. “The reality is that communism persists in the way people behave, in the looks on their faces, in the way they think.” An observant American might add, with more than a little irony, that “the end of communism” doesn’t even apply in the West. It positively flourishes in the thousand ways we have compromised our economic freedom, in the leftist indoctrination of college students, in subversive Hollywood movies, in our declared multiculturalism, in Congress, in the White House, in the Supreme Court. Who is so blind, deaf and stupid as to believe that communism has “ended”?
