Reader feedback: Are communists a dying breed?

Re: Communists defend 1968 Soviet invasion, News briefs, August 18 - 24, Vol 9, No 31

I would like to know how many new people the Communists (KSS) have added to their party since Slovakia went on their own in 1993? I would bet that the number declined as the years went by. It would be interesting to see a yearly list of new members who support these communists.

They should be happy that Slovakia even allows them to be recognised after all those years of oppression of the Slovak people. But yes, a free country even allows these rummys to show their true colors for what they are - outdated failures.

Look what they did to Slovakia and all the other countries that they held back for so many years. Now, Slovakia has a long way to go to get on par with the other free nations, but it's better late then never.
