    I bought the book on Audible and listened to it. It was an AMAZING book and story. The woman, Hyeonseo Lee, is my new hero. To do what she did is incredible. I understand a movie is being made. It's a no-brainer that a movie should be made about her and her experiences.

    These types of people are what America needs more of and the types I admire without reservation. Courage in the face of potential death. Principled, and fighting for her liberty, all while spreading the reality for all who care to listen to.

    Who knows how many more lives she might save because of her selfless act?

    One of the things in her book she talked about was indoctrination, which begins at birth. In school, students know better than to ask questions or to think. They're supposed to memorize all sorts of "history" and state propaganda. I wonder what this woman would think of all of the antifa and other leftist organizations that want to annihilate or censor freedom of expression.

    The problem is that many of these young people have not experienced the reality and threat of communism as so many in the West have. They look at Bernie Sanders as some benevolent Robin Hood, and they view "free stuff" as something as simple as a Magic Pixie waving it's wand and providing for all.

    As goes free market capitalism so goes liberty and accountability. Every socialist, neo-communist states suffers from this affliction eventually.
