Worth Savoring….

I used this clip during my introduction at the Oslo Freedom Forum of former Romanian president Emil Constantinescu. It is worth remembering the last moments of a dictatorship, when the dictator learns that “his people” don’t actually love him.

P.S. A reader notes that I did not identify the dictator in the video is Nicolae Ceau?escu. I used the video in my introduction of Constantinescu, who attempted while in office to undo what decades of dictatorship had done to his country.

    Indeed it is. I am too involved in such issues and it did not occur to me (my mistake) that others might not recognize him. You are precisely correct. I will note it in the main blog post. Thank you!
