Perspectives Of A Russian Immigrant #tcot

Part 1
The Perspective Of A Russian Immigrant 

When I came to America in 1980 and experienced life in this country, I thought it was fortunate that those living in the USSR did not know how unfortunate they were.

Now in 2009, I realize how unfortunate it is that many Americans do not understand how fortunate they are. They vote to give government more and more power without understanding the consequences.


Part 2
Perspective Of A Russian Immigrant (No.2)

USSR, 1959: I am a "young pioneer" in school. History classes remind us that there is a higher authority than their parents and teachers: the leaders of the Communist Party.


Part 3
Perspective Of A Russian Immigrant (No. 3)

USSR, 1959: Whenever I speak about my experiences living in the USSR, my American friends respond that such things can never happen in a democracy like the United States.
