Victor Davis Hanson lists 10 ways Americans becoming 'Sovietized'

'There was no escape from ideological indoctrination – anywhere.

The changes have come on America abruptly, and many with the election in 2016 of Donald Trump as president. And they're becoming amplified under President Joe Biden.

They include ideological campaigns that require a single-point of view from everyone, public character attacks on those who dare to disagree, a unified government/media voice, spying on opinions, and more.

They are signs that, just perhaps, Americans are becoming "Sovietized," according to Victor Davis Hanson, a classicist and historian at the Hoover Institution.

In a commentary this week, he lists 10 "symptoms of Sovietism"

  1. Victor Davis Hanson has noticed the obvious. I'm really impressed.

  2. The Soviet Union and the whole eastern block, had closed borders ! There was no cultural enhancement and colourization.

    The soviet block was badly managed, but the underlying concept was: national agriculture, national industry, state-owned bank.

    They actually tried (didn't really succeed) to maintain the nation's culture and heritage.

    Yes, there was plenty of trouble, but hope and future wasn't destroyed.

    So this Hanson gasbag doen't know what sovietization is.

    If someone actually studied the soviet system, he would be surprised how much they copied from the national socialists.

    1. how much they copied from the national socialists.

      I am sure. Thanks.
