Looks like the billionaire Babis ( true to his billionaire roots) formed a coalition with communists in the Czech Republic.

The communists were out of power since the Prague Spring.

Babis is a rich man, similar to the ones we have here who have no idea what he is doing. He has never been subjected to the authoritarian rules of communists. This is bad news for the Czechs.

    I think the US socialist are worried about is Europe getting much further down this road that us, and proving the system is a mess, before they have their way. Go Trump!

    As Europe moves closer of universal socialism it is natural for them to embrace Communism, not willing to take on the responsibility for their own lives. As we allow persons from such countries to come into our nation we need to exercise care in who we accept. There are too many already living in our nation who don't have a clue about what a Constitutional Republic is. It is time for us to clean house and remove those are a threat to our nation's future. We have gone too far in the socialist direction already.

    Young people are especially vulnerable to the siren song of a totalitarian state. Mussolini coined the term "totalitarian" to represent a government that takes care of your every need. Unfortunately, young adults are often overwhelmed with the reality of caring for oneself, and rather than buckle up and take care of business, they fall prey to those who promise they don't have to struggle.

    While I focus on the young, there are older folks who dream of a soft landing in their end years, and are equally vulnerable to being enticed. I see this frequently. Recently an acquaintance who lived by himself in the mountains in California became ill with an incurable neurological disorder, and realized he had better move in with Midwestern relatives, where he had family to help him. One of his long term friends was irate at the move, declaring that he needn't go away, because "California will take care of you." Of course the friend had no notion how the state was going to do this, but it didn't matter.

    It is astonishing how trusting young eastern Europeans are about communism. At least the ones I run in to in the US. Older Eastern Europeans can all be relied on to hate communism. I am talking about 45 years old and older. People who actually lived under the repression. With one of these guys you can have a fabulous discussion and "hate in" on communism while high fiving each other. The youngsters are even more vapid about the commies than normal american young people. this is probably why stupidity like this is happening....the under 30 crowd look back on communism and guaranteed income and jobs and it all sounds good.

    Is it right to form an alliance with ANYONE in order to get the government going?

    Nobody wanted to associate with Babis: hence the communists.
