HOA Communism

Kids these days don’t know much about Communism. They don’t get much more than a passing overview in their history or civics classes. Sadly, as George Santayana pointed out, “Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” So that means our kids and grandkids may, themselves, have to someday experience such things as Communism and Facism. It’s so subtle, and you’re stuck before you know it.

In fact, isn’t that exactly what many young people are facing in the structure of today’s Homeowners Associations?

After reading the blog linked below, and pondering the identity of ‘Alex’, an anti-Communist dissident/writer who left the Soviet Union to seek peace elsewhere, you might ponder the reality of being doomed to repeat history.

I’ve bloggged about this blogger before, but since he’s re-posting I’ll re-post him as well.

    I live in a gated HOA single family home community. I would say we have a totally out of control board (rogue), I guess you would call it. We have put together residents that have done research and have obtained documents. We produce important items documentation and research and bring it to monthly meetings. We have been attending meetings for 4+ years and to show a perfect example of trying to suppress residents from talking at meetings one board member has resorted to his own blog site, a site where he considers us Naysayers.

    This is what he posted for the New Year: Posted by our board member: “Remember next week it is supposed to be colder than a Naysayer’s heart! Enjoy it while you can.” Ken
