By Judy T. Kushner
People brought up in this country have no idea what it is like to live under a totalitarian government.  I remember clearly growing up during China's Cultural Revolution; how my family members were harassed and how, at age three, I had to accompany my German-educated grandfather to what was called "public shaming," where citizens were verbally and physically abused in the public square.
