While this guy is talking about the Soviet Union (pre Berlin Wall falling). Many of the things he is speaking of, the concepts, are currently ongoing. For example, his discussion of "facts not mattering" is shown in the case of Michael Brown which I discussed at length in a previous posting. Furthermore when we see how certain ideas are censored to the extent that people literally try to destroy the lives of those they disapprove of, is also in line with concepts discussed in the video. Lastly, when we see the disturbing trend of academics seriously putting for the idea that due process (for certain crimes) including the idea that one is considered innocent until proven guilty, should be abandoned we see that this fellow is right on track. Watch and remember this was in the 80's.
