    This has probably been posted before, but it’s scary just how accurate it has been after 55 years.

    That's almost spooky. Thanks for posting.

    George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm carried similar warnings, as did John Christopher in so many of his books.
    A friend of mine posted this from in another place...
    "Shame on me for not reading Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn so many years ago.
    I would have made good use of this quote over the years:
    "And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs [Soviet secret police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

    Yes he was a great American. He had a vacation farm south of here not too far from me but, I don't know exactly where in the Ozarks.

    Yes, seems Paul Harvey has a lot of connections in Mo. BTW, me and my brother own about 250 acres of land 30 miles NE of Nevada Missouri. It is mostly hilly/wooded with white oak. We have a cabin and a couple sheds on the land. Great for getting away, hunting, fishing, ATV riding.
    Attached is a picture of the outside of the cabin.

    Didn't you do a thread on building the place a few years ago? I seem to remember that cabin, or one very much like it!

    I always loved it when I was on a long drive, searching the radio for something to listen to, and suddenly I would hear, "Stand by for NEWS!"

    I listened to him as often as I could. One time I remember him asking, "If you live in a city, do you know the easiest way to keep your car from being stolen? Own a standard transmission." Learning to drive with "a stick" that sounded so strange to me....till I got to know some city kids. Now, before the city guys and gals who can drive "a stick" start crucifying me, let me tell you, back then had I been drug to a city there's a ton of stuff I would have been as ignorant of. Probably still is!!
