I am a Romanian and I lived through those times. I was struggling these days to understand what an intellectual really is.. Those who don't understand that there might be a possibility that they don't know anything cannot be considered intellectuals by any stretch of the imagination. Even if they read a book.
I am the first to hate marxism, in fact I have no greater passion than hating marxism and communism. Ceausescu was far more tame than people think. He in fact loved Romania, opposed the USSR invasion of Czechoslovakia, cultivated love for history (although he proclaimed himself the greatest hero of all), religion was tolerated, and in the end he tried to make Romania independent from any foreign influence. This last fact led to his killing - he had to be silenced and replaced with a better servant of the globalists. In fact Romanians mourn him on Christmas day and consider themselves his murderers.
And jong is right. Romanians have suffered both under communism and islam. So they know better than most peoples how dangerous these are.
