My name is Ligia Brubaker. I was born in 1984 in the Socialist Republic of Romania and I am one of the survivors of Ceauşescu’s tyranny.
I now reside in WA state and rest in the shadow of the most valuable document ever produced by the human race: the Constitution of the United States of America. In order to help America understand the dangers of Socialism, I extended and developed the Risk Avoidance Public Health Model to politics. This approach is beneficial and has helped many students re-think their choices. My trust is that, as this political model spreads around the country, it produces a genuine return to the Constitution.

The fear of not knowing who you can trust, and not being sure that the other ones are with you or against you were so debilitating that the mob mentality was unable to kick in and take over the crowd. This is what extreme fear in a society looks like; people can become psychologically disabled and unable to rise up and protest. Continue reading →
If we do *nothing* to stop socialism from spreading in America, this is what we are guilty of: We are guilty of doing nothing – and we deserve everything that is coming. We know what is to come, yet we do nothing about it and we allow it to happen. The Romanian history only reinforces Dr. Peterson’s point: any tyranny is a mutual seduction between a nation and its leader. Evil people don’t become leaders without the crowds’ approval, and there is always a dialogue between people and their leaders that can encourage or discourage ideas from developing in a society.
