Up in the Air

https://www.damninteresting.com/up-in-the-air/

As night fell over the East German town of Pössneck on the evening of 14 September 1979, most of the town’s citizens were busy getting ready for bed. But not Günter Wetzel. The mason was in his attic, hunched over an old motor-driven sewing machine, desperately working to complete his secret project.

"Here I am, crawling through barbed wire, over land mines, through rivers and mountains to escape the evils of free market capitalism... said NO ONE... EVER!" - anon

Socialism: You wait in queues for bread.
Capitalism: Bread waits in queues for you.

Excellent article. The price of freedom is worth the risk and we need to protect our freedoms.

There was a segment of one of the White Rabbit Project shows on this. Very interesting indeed.
