Creeping Socialism

PUBLIC ENEMIES

In the mist a of a worldwide disaster, there are those that will use this catastrophe as a power grab. It has been said by corrupt opportunists to never let a crisis go to waste. Indeed, the democrats are willing and able to use this crisis as a power grab at the expense of the American people.

The vision that Clyburn and the democrats want is more socialist controls over our Constitutional freedoms. Starting with overwhelming the government support system with money for pet projects. In a sense, bankrupting the treasury for selfish purposes. This will create a great demand and dependency for bigger government. This is the opportunity for the democrats to do things they’ve always been wanting to do for decades.

The democrats have wanted to eliminate the Second Amendment since the FDR regime. The very right to defend yourself, your family, your property, and especially against government tyranny. What the democrats want is to replicate the spread of socialism throughout the world here at home. The first step in totalitarianism is disarming the people. When the people cannot defend themselves from tyranny, then it’s easy to use force to controls on the people. Democrats have been attempting to control the people for a long time and now they see this crisis as their best opportunity to seize power, forever.

In order to accomplish the democrats socialist goals, they must first align themselves with globalist organizations. They need a crisis that will frighten people into giving up their rights for the illusion of socialism security. They will motivate people and organizations with economic, social, and amoral incentives. These people and organizations only have their own agendas. Agenda’s that are not aligned with the needs of the American people. Instead, the democrats will use these organizations to enrich themselves and their families. It is a practice that both parties have done for years. They will write legislation so that they can skim off appropriated taxpayer’s money. How else does elected officials make millions on a $174K salary? Socialists will cheat and steal with impunity and with no accountability.

The consequences of allowing creeping socialism into government and society is that once it takes hold, it’s damn hard to get rid of it. Entitlements. Many of the socialist controls on the Populace will be in government entitlement programs. Getting the people hooked on government welfare programs. Getting illegal immigrants legal status so they can receive government benefits. Allowing illegals to vote. Rigging the election process to favor the ruling party. Any opposition will be just for show with little to no shared power. Lastly, controlling the media. Keeping a state propaganda machine delivering only state approved news and programming.

All these democrat objectives are slowly becoming in place. The majority of the fake news media is a branch of the democrat party. CNN and MSNBC have refused to air Trump’s coronavirus task force briefings. Calling the task force briefings a Trump mini-rally and dismissing the information the public needs. The big three alphabet news outlets, ABC, NBC, and CBS, all coordinate together to repeat the same state propaganda. I’m watching Fox News change their once brand of “Fair and Balance”, and “We Report, You Decide”, change into a watered-down report that excludes related information to make an informed decision.

Luckily there are smaller, hungry, news organizations starting up to clear the void of big media misinformation. These news startups are demonstrating objective journalism that we have never seen with the established fake news media. My hope is these new media startups reporting will get more attention. Many of them have channels on YouTube and other internet websites.

Margaret Thatcher once said about socialism, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Socialism’s goal is eventually communism. Most of the democrats, not all, but most are socialists. The most outspoken of the democrat socialists, besides Breadline Bernie Sanders, are the members of the so called “Squad”.

I consider these four idiots the Socialist Brides of Dracula. As with all socialists, they use imaginary social strife to promote socialist ideology. Class inequalities, racial division, unequal pay, and claim America is an unjust country. All the usual dystopian claims that have no basis in reality.

Never let a crisis go to waste, as the socialist democrats often say. The coronavirus has been a socialist dream: Americans unemployed and needing a nanny state government to take care of them. In the 1930’s during the Great Depression, socialism was also influencing government officials. It’s a different time now than then. We have information network that moves at the speed of light. Truth and lies both travel at the same speed. It’s very important to be able to filter out the truth from the lies.

As before in history, creeping socialism, isn’t going away. You can see how socialist Governor’s and Mayor’s that are taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis to enforce rules to control people’s activities. Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, rules are a perfect example of overreaching socialism. Virginia’s governor, Ralph (Gov. Blackface) Northam, anti-Constitutional restrictions on liberties is another sign of creeping socialism. Where democrats are in power, it goes to their heads very quickly and develops into Machiavellianism psychopathy. They will justify their Draconian decisions as the ends to justify the means. Restricting church services, what you can purchase in stores, what activities you can do, where you can go, where you park your car, what foods you can purchase, how many people can associate together, and all these rules will be reasoned as before for your own good. Someone else will decide what’s essential and what’s not. Where have we’ve heard this before?

 

Our weather today started with warm sunshine. It was so nice that I had breakfast on my lanai. By the afternoon, the clouds started rolling in and the temperatures dropped. Temperatures are in the mid 70’s with humidity at 81%. No rain is expected, but tradewinds will be returning.

It’s day 22 of the Stay At Home directive, and it’s also (Lā ʻAuhau) Tax Day. I’ve already sent in my taxes. I had to pay taxes this year! YEA! First time I won’t be getting a government interest free tax return. I don’t like getting tax returns, because I don’t get any interest on tax returns.

Socialist Utopia

Tonight is another democrat debate in Charleston, South Carolina. The fake news media has Breadline Bernie Sanders as the front-runner to win the March 3rd Super Tuesday primary’s. After winning Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada’s caucus’s the media is projecting Sanders as the probably winner. You know what you’ll never see at a democrat debate? An American Flag. Tells you all you need to know.

Don’t think that Breadline Bernie is something new to the democrats communist attraction. The democrats have slowing moving to a totalitarian platform. It’s been around for decades. All throughout the regime of Barry the Bullshitter Obama, socialism policies started as a whisper. Obama’s policies were to enact communist policies. Barry the BS’er proudly posed for pictures with the Castro dictatorship. Even with the mass murderer Che Guevara’s portrait displayed, there was Barry the BS’er proudly misrepresenting the United States. Bernie doesn’t hide his love for communism.

Breadline Bernie has done several interviews where he has touted the virtues of socialism. Let’s be honest, Sanders is a communist. He loves to compare communist dictatorships as socialist utopias. He’s praised Cuba, Russia, and Venezuela as models of his socialist utopia. Just as other leftist celebrity kooks have done also. They parade themselves in communist countries and make claims how much better their form of government works over the United States. How much better the socialist healthcare system is working.

This is astonishing. Breadline Bernie said, “When Castro came into office”. Castro wasn’t elected. He and his communist thugs led a bloody overthrow of Cuba. Thousands died. Then Breadline Bernie speaks highly about Castro’s literacy program. Which is nothing more than a communist indoctrination program. Not stopping there, Sanders goes on to praise communist social programs and claimed that because the Cuban people never revolted they were satisfied with the Castro regime. History shows there were many revolts that were violently put down.

As I wrote previously, I don’t see a difference between socialism and communism. These regimes use violence to keep the people from revolting. They prevent the people from leaving the communist state. They will kill whole families, including children. Sanders conveniently omits these facts.

Sanders has been in government for 30 years. He has never been employed. He has never started a business. He has no idea how a capitalist society works. Sanders only knows state run government. Sanders has made himself wealthy being in congress. Many democrats have become wealthy in congress. It’s a pattern of corruption that permeates our government that we the people have allowed to fester.

Look at all the candidates on the debate stage tonight. Listen to there debate answers. Look to see if they are offering anything constructive for the American people. What are their solutions to kitchen table discussions? What will they do for the economy, healthcare, and national security? In past debates, their only message has been to defeat President Trump. That’s not a policy that’s going to benefit the American people.

 

Our weather today was SUNNY. All day long with very few clouds. Here’s what Mauna Kea looked from the Walmart parking lot. There’s still snow on the summit.

Temperatures were in the mid 70’s all day, even in the sun. The cool Pacific breezes kept things from overheating. Humidity was at 57%. Very dry weather. There is a chance of over night rain. The forecast shows increasing rain up to the weekend. We have a small craft advisory and high winds on the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.

The China Syndrome

Remember the fiction movie “The China Syndrome”? That Tripple-C (crummy, crummy, crummy) movie that environmentalists claimed would be our Chernobyl. Indeed, Three Mile Island nearly turned into a nuclear meltdown when equipment failures caused the plant to be shutdown. However, Nuclear is still the best and safest source of energy on the planet. I suppose the cleaner the energy is, the greater the hazard in disposing the materials. That goes for all sources of energy. The physics of energy remains the same, once spent, it cannot be reused.

Today’s meltdown is the COVID-19 or coronavirus that is the real China Syndrome. As of today, the process of elimination as to where the virus originated from has been narrowed down. It neither was an animal to human transfer, nor a natural mutation of the coronavirus. We do know the virus started in the Wuhan province and spread from there. In the Wuhan province there are several large universities and research centers. There is only one laboratory where the coronavirus can be safely handled.

The lab happens to sit in the center of Wuhan, the city where the newly identified coronavirus first appeared. The facility, known as the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, is housed within the Chinese Academy of Sciences and was specifically designed to help Chinese scientists “prepare for and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks,” according to a 2019 report published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Designated at Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4), the Wuhan lab can hold the world’s most dangerous pathogens at maximum biocontainment levels.

I’m not saying this is the origin of the virus. Since the CCP (Chinese Communist Politburo) is so secretive about sharing information, only speculation answers the unknown. As the virus origin field gets narrower, the more all the arrows point to a research biocontainment accident.

This brings me to the democrat Presidential elections. You’re probably thinking, that’s a twist, but hear me out. The main difference is that under communism, most property and economic resources are owned and controlled by the state (rather than individual citizens); under socialism, all citizens share equally in economic resources as allocated by a democratically-elected government. If you ask me, there’s very little difference between the two. This is America’s China Syndrome. You could also call it the rise of the Breadline Bernie Socialists.

After Super Tuesday on March 3rd, we’ll have a better idea who will be the probable democrat nominee to challenge President Trump. There’s still many unknowns till the DNC convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The fake news media says the democrat party members are scared to see Breadline Bernie as their nominee, but I’m not buying that crap. The democrat party is wholly a socialist plutocracy, and has been so for years. Just look at the line of candidates, the majority of them are millionaires and billionaires. In the case of Mini Mike Doomberg, he’s successfully bought his way into the campaigns. He’s has no constituents and he’s not very likable. He pays people to support his campaign, there are no volunteers that I know of.

The “Bernie Bros” that follow Breadline Bernie are a thin veneer over antifa. They have expressed using violence to overthrow the Republic. They have been caught in acts of violence and vandalism. These are young people that have been indoctrinated by Marxism. Mostly college kids, but the influence is permeating into K-12 schools. Contrary to what Senator Bernie Sanders said, the literacy campaign used by the Castro regime was part of their strategic plan to indoctrinate the Cuban people by using education at all levels in support of a Marxist ideology. Sanders has praised communist regimes in Cuba, Russia, and Venezuela. Sanders has said he wants that model deployed here in the United States. The Marxist ideology is similar to a virus.

The attraction is the lure of free stuff. They claim that wealth is horded by the very few. As if wealth is finite and limited and it has to be shared for equality and fairness. The concept of building wealth by hard work, innovation, and entrepreneurship is totally alien to these people. They want your wealth now and they will take it by violence if it is not surrendered to them. This is why schools don’t teach history anymore. Instead they leftist lesson planner teaches conformity, collectivism, and circumvolution. The three “C’s” of communism.

Assassination, by the socialists democrats has become the tool of choice to silence whistleblowers. Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower who was an outspoken critic of the regime of Barry the bulshitter Obama, was found dead Friday, about 40 miles east of Sacramento, Calif., local authorities said. The death was ruled a suicide. However, I find that too convenient. The democrats have a party  legacy of mysterious suicides. Here was a man that was engaged to be married and he’s somehow suicidal? How does that happen?

As I said earlier, the communists are responsible for the deaths of millions. Threats, intimidation, and murder, are common denominators in totalitarian regimes. Breadline Bernie said the only guarantee in 2020 is there’s no guarantee. That’s enough to cause a meltdown.

 

Our weather today was sunny and clear. It was in the low 60’s this morning before it warmed up to the upper 70’s. Because there is no cloud cover the temperatures are back in the 60’s. Good sleeping weather. The humidity is 80%.

There are no signs of coronavirus on these islands, as reported. The President is in India this evening to have talks with Prime Minister Modi. There’s an atmosphere of happiness and welcoming for the President and First Lady. Millions of people are lining the route in Ahmedabad, India. They’re heading to Motera Stadium for a welcome the United States President. It’s like a party atmosphere. The stadium is standing room only with an overflow crowd outside. Incredible.

Irony Of Truth

Deception is the values of leftists. They disguise themselves as fighters of truth and nobility, but in reality the truth is a veneer over lies. A devil with a halo in appearance. There are several topics I’d like to touch upon to illustrate my point.

The protesters in Hong Kong are struggling for their freedoms from the tyranny of communist China. The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act mandates sanctions on Chinese and Hong Kong officials who carry out human rights abuses and requires an annual review of the favorable trade status that Washington grants Hong Kong.

HongKongers wave American flags and sing our national anthem. The people of Hong Kong love their country. They have a real reason to fear communist China. China has a horrible human rights record. The communist Chinese regime is brutal.

In America, a domestic terror group known as ‘antifa’ is a pro-communist anti-America group that uses mob tactics to beat people up in the streets, terrorize neighborhoods, and destroy businesses.

The irony is in the differences between the good people of Hong Kong and the evil of antifa in America. One knows the value of freedom and how dear it is. The other is hate filled fascist destruction and brutality.

Antifa is associated with the core principals of communism and fascism. It is also loosely coupled with today’s democrat party. Many in the democrat party are openly socialists. Communists by any other name. What the democrats also infamous for is accusing others of the crimes they commit.

In the clip above, Joe Biden brags about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired in a quid quo pro deal. Something the democrats are trying to pin on President Trump. Here’s a sitting VP on video bragging about committing a crime and getting away with it. A sitting VP that used his influence to get his dope-snorting son a job on a corrupt Ukrainian board. Then getting a Chinese banking deal. Biden sold his office and has never been charged with corruption. Instead, the democrats are accusing President Trump of corruption.

The fake news media is a complsit partner with the democrats. They are like antifa in enforcing the lies and smears against innocent people. The irony is they all believe the American people believe their lies. The media wonders why we consider them the enemy of the people.

After two years of trying to find a crime, the democrats are now accusing the President of a quid quo pro and bribery. Even though all the so called witnesses, witnessed nothing. It was all hearsay, presumption and outright lies. They had a lying Adam Schiff that falsified President Trump’s conversation with the Ukraine president. Then a transcript of the conversation was produced and still the democrats lied to the American people. That failed miserably.

 

Now, with true irony, they’re propping up the guy that uses his trousers as a bib, Nadler, to continue with looking for a crime that doesn’t exist. The criminal tactics democrats use: First make sexual accusations. Next make up a false charge and spend millions of taxpayer’s money only to fail. Next make up more false charges and prevent any defense witnesses, use a Star Chamber secret testimony with no cross examination. These are the tactics that communist China uses to silence any opposition.

Note that after ambassador Sundland, the democrats star witness, testified that he presumed there was a quid quo pro, but he had no first hand knowledge. Right after that, a story came out that three women accused Sondland of sexual misconduct. This is right from the democrats playbook. If the democrats don’t get their way, make more false accusations. The democrats tried this with President Trump, with Justice Cavanaugh, and George H.W. Bush. Yet the irony is there are more democrats with a history of sexual misconduct including covering for pedophiles. The democrats get hefty political donations from Hollyweird moguls like Harvey Weinstein and Oprah Winfrey which have a history of sexual misconduct. The democrats always accuse others of the crimes they commit. It’s madness.

Our weather today, Saturday 30, 2019, the last day of November, is mostly cloudy with some scattered showers. Temperatures in the mid 75’s with humidity at 80%. Cool Pacific trade breezes make it feel like 70 degrees. Tickets for Merrie Monarch 2020 will be going on sale soon, and they will be snapped up fast.

 

 

 

 

 

Boomers

I was having what I thought was a civil conversation with someone on Twitter, when the individual suddenly ended the discussion with a terse, “OK BOOMER.” Then he blocked me. I didn’t understand what the person was upset about. The discussion was about financial planning for retirement. About the value of opening a 401K and contributing to it. About avoiding credit card debt. The value of compound interest in savings. Apparently, this individual felt they have no chance of meeting those goals. They repeated that they were being held back from achieving equal opportunities. However, they couldn’t explain why and how they were being held back.

I discovered that there is a real jealousy gap between millennial’s and Generation Z folks. These millennial’s and Generation Z folks have a Peter Pan syndrome, and they don’t ever want to grow up. I remember when I was growing up in the 60’s hearing people saying, never trust anyone over 30. Except I did trust people over 30. I felt they had more wisdom and life experience that I did. I could learn from them to course my life direction.

Today, many of us boomers have learned hard lessons in life. Many of our best thinkers have said repetitively the key to success is to finish school. Get a steady job. Get married. Have children. Do so while planing for you and your family’s future. Some of us got married late in life as we were struggling to find that steady job, and get that education to earn a better salary than the minimum wage fast food jobs. The minimum wage jobs taught us responsibility, get to work on time, work hard and do a good job. Too often today millennial’s believe they are entitled to a livable wage while working a burger joints. Somehow they believe that can work the French Fry machine for life and be able to retire in the future. When reality hits, they look around at those that earned a good living and feel they have no chance of achieving the same results. They seem unwilling to work for success. Thus the frustration and the OK Boomer slam.

Millennial’s and Generation Z are encouraged to attend college. Ever since the Obama regime tied Obamacare to tuition costs, the price of college is cost prohibited. In effect, Obama gave the colleges a blank check to charge whatever tuition costs they wanted. The government controls all college loans and the traditional banks have been removed from making college loans. You cannot declare bankruptcy from the government obligations. Plus, colleges are no longer institutions of higher learning. Unless you’re either a math, science, engineering or medical student, then college is worthless. You’d be better off going to a trade school and take journeyman courses in skills that are needed. Electricians, Plumbers, Carpenters, Welders, a whole host of blue collar jobs that pay very well. There is a shortage of skilled workers. The unsocial media giants are trying to reduce wages by hiring H1B foreign workers. What’s sad is both Democrats and Republicans are promoting importing H1B visa for campaign contributions. Our politicians are being bought off and that should not be allowed. This just makes it harder for US graduating engineers to have a level economic opportunity.

Companies like Microsoft, Disney, Google, Twitter, Amazon and other multi-billion dollar corporations are shutting out local engineers for cheap foreign labor. Disney forced their engineers to train H1B Visa foreign workers to replace their jobs. Of course this isn’t true for all companies, but many in the Silicon Valley companies are doing this to American workers. I worked in High-Tech for over 25 years and I have seen this trend for years. That’s when I decided to start my own business and provide myself an alternative to the corporate culture. It took me three times and three different business models to find the right profitable fit. One thing about this country is the ability to fail, learn, and try again.

I’m troubled by the direction the millennial’s are taking. They are being told they have no chance and they have to fight for social justice. Millennial’s are being enticed by the lure of socialism. The snake in the tree that promises income equality for everyone. Socialism tells the millennial’s that the older generation is responsible for their plight for success. Part of the discussion I had with this millennial was his contention that socialism promises what they cannot achieve. Then I asked if they were aware of the history of socialism. To my surprised, they knew nothing, except for what they were told by socialists like Breadline Bernie Sanders and others.

A poll of 16-24 year old’s found that 28 percent had never heard of Stalin, almost half had never heard of Lenin and 70% had never heard of Mao Tse Tung. How can this be? Apparently, world history is no longer taught in schools. Socialism is at its core an economic philosophy, whereas Communism is economic and political in its requirement that government be the central owner and decision maker in all matters. Communism rejects any religion and in a true Communist state religion is effectively abolished. I call socialism the path down to communism. It’s interesting that the people in Hong Kong know this all to well. It’s sad millennial’s are clueless about what socialism really means. I was in disbelief listening to a millennial comparing socialism to social media, “It’s like being social.” the millennial said. It’s no wonder why more people are homeschooling their children. The public schools are a massive failure.

Although, I have no accurate reference to Soviet Prime Minister Nikita Khrushchev quote: “We’ll spoon feed you socialism until you’re Communists and don’t even know it! We’ll assist your elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of Socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism. Maybe not you, but at all events the day will come when your children and your grandchildren will surely live under communism!” — This is very true in today’s environment.

It was the great Ronaldus Magnus that said; “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” I fear it might already too late. Although, President Trump said that we will never be a socialist nation. So I have to have faith as a Boomer that the millennial’s will eventually come to their senses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Greatest Generation

On June 6, 1944, 74 years ago, the Allies invade Western Europe in the largest amphibious attack in history. A horrible world war that killed millions, with some of the worse atrocities committed against fellow humans. Known as ‘D-Day’, the first day of the invasion by the fighters of freedom. The following days were listed, D+1. D+2, D+3, and so on.  The armies of Nazism and Fascism were on their way to defeat.

Unfortunately, an unholy alliance with Communist Russian on the eastern flank, the allies on the western front, was successful in cutting off Nazi supply routes to divide and conquer. The Russian alliance eventually evolved into the Cold War. The rise of Communist China also set in motion the enslavement of people. Millions died under Mao and Stalin. The world was war weary, the rebuilding of Europe and Japan had begun.  The world with left with the oppression of communism, and the prosperity of capitalism, and eventually, capitalism won. The economics of capitalism had proved that communism doesn’t work. Although communism still exists, along with its counterpart ‘socialism’, both remain a threat to individual freedom and liberty.

Those that fought in World War II are called the Greatest Generation. Because the men and women, fought and died for the future generations of the world against the armies of darkness. Men went to fight, and women worked the factories and provided military support. As Ronald Reagan said in a speech, “We are only one generation away from losing our freedoms.” 

Conservative Radio Talk Show host, Dennis Prager, often blames the greatest generation for not preparing the younger generation about the threat of totalitarianism. He right! As the idea of socialism creeps into American politics, and schools, as a Utopian alternative to Capitalism, with the promise of free housing, food, jobs, healthcare, and all the comforts of a state run government. Capitalism represents hard work,  successes, and failures, but the liberty to try again to find happiness. Socialism represents free stuff. Yet, doesn’t explain how and who would pay for free stuff. The problem with socialism, once it is enacted, it’s damn hard to get rid of it. Obamacare is a good example.

So, on this day, we remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice, and set in motion America’s greatest and prosperous time in history. It’s too bad the millennial generation hasn’t been taught about the sacrifices their grandparents made for their freedoms. History tends to repeat from time to time. Those that don’t learn from the mistakes of the past, are doomed to repeat it. That’s why World War II was a repeat of the first world war.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Romancing the Absolutist

absolutist

The death of Fidel Castro is a blessing to the lovers of freedom, but a heartbreak to the socialist leftists.  It is indeed appalling the hero worship the so called democratic world leaders have adorned a mass murderer and communist dictator. Even in industry, the Cuban flag, pictures of Che Guevara and even Barack Obama is proudly pictured with icons of terror.

havana-cuba

These world leaders called Castro a ‘Social Justice Leader’, but he was a dictator that imprisoned his people on a island.  Castro confiscated private property, he seized private industry, and he either murdered or jailed political dissidents.  He was a monster.

The island prison that Castro created was to keep people in, but people were so desperate for freedom that they risked their lives to flee.  They built and used boats to cross shark infested waters to reach the United States.  Many drowned trying to reach freedom.  How could any world leader see Castro as anything but a fascist dictator?  Yet, here was the American President, Barack Obama, mourning the passing of a notorious prison warden.

commierum

Although the United States had an embargo against the communist Cuban government that prohibited all business and political contact, other countries did have relations with Cuba.  European, Canadian, Central and South American countries opened trade and tourism with Cuba.  They poured money into the Cuban economy, which was confiscated by the Castro government.  The Castro’s were wealthy while the people were poor.  Cities were crumbling, transportation was in a time warp stuck in the 1950’s.  State run stores frequently ran out of food.  Yet there was this fascination with the world about this mysterious island prison as a vacation mecca.  Because they, the tourists, could leave to return home.  That wasn’t the case for the Cuban people.

Now that Castro is gone, there doesn’t seem there will be any change with the totalitarian regime.  The Cuban people will continue to be held hostage and denied their human rights.  Meanwhile, the world ignores a brutal dictatorship.  Ultimately, this is a greater crime against humanity.
