The Berlin Wall was not only a massive construction that divided the German people, it also represented an ideological division between a free and prosperous world and a restrictive and impoverished one.
With the fall of the wall in ’89, Germany became unified, becoming a great prosperous nation that later led the unification of Europe into what it is today.
At the end of the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we are presented with a valuable opportunity. Not only can we make a desperately necessary contribution to historical memory, but also develop and support a broad and prospective antitotalitarian culture.
With the Nuremberg trials, held between 1945 and 1946, the crimes of National Socialism and its leaders were tried and condemned, thus dictating a moral and political judgment on totalitarianism. The tests made it clear to the world that Nazism was bad and destructive to people, and would not be accepted anywhere on the planet again.
While communism that, for much longer, has caused more deaths and sufferings than Nazism, has never been called to account in a global tribunal, as happened in Nuremberg. 30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall, after the catastrophic results of the so-called “real socialism,” many people continue to suffer other dictatorships that in time were rooted in communist ideology (which remains in force in places like Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea).
In Libertad y Progreso we assume the hard work of breaking down the ideological walls on which these regimes are based. We join those who urge to move forward with moral and ethical judgments against communism and a global job that shows the very real of their crimes against humanity, assigning political and institutional responsibility for those facts. In this way, we must seek to make clear the inhuman and incompatible ideology with the aim of giving people greater opportunities for progress and converting each country into a freer and more prosperous society.
The crimes of communism against humanity must be widely disseminated and morally punished. The claim we accompany is attached.
