ENUMCLAW, Wash., Aug. 11, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- To someone who fled totalitarian regimes representing socialism, communism, and Hitler's Third Reich, what's happening in America today is unthinkable and terrifying.
Hilda Gutwein, the youngest of eight children born to a German farmer, grew up in a war zone -- the Balkan States. Eventually, the family was caught between two totalitarian forms of government, and Hilda's father had to make a choice for his family -- stay and defend their homeland or leave everything behind in a desperate search for freedom.
They fled to America and her daughter's just released book, Time to Choose (2012, WinePress Publishing), chronicles the family's story that has chilling parallels to the current situation in America. Dawn Gutwein Kazmierzak paints a disturbing picture of the similarities between the use of propaganda in repressive political systems and the untruths and the way American media and the education system indoctrinate the public with their own agenda.
Kazmierzak shares insights gleaned from her mother’s experiences about:
- When a culture is headed to the default of a dictator, monarch, or centralized power
- How a crisis or threat perpetuated by propaganda instills fear and a need for governmental "protection"
- The true role and abilities of government
- How censorship, deceptive concepts, and false ideologies are spread through media
- Why freedom is prized by most of the world's citizenry but rarely obtained
She asks, "Will the next generation enjoy the same freedoms we enjoy today? And what will you do to safeguard them for your family?"
Kazmierzak states in her book:
"Recognize that a government has no resources, no money of its own except that which it takes from its people. The government redistributes this currency as it sees fit. The government does so to gain the allegiance of the recipients who relinquish their own freedom in exchange for dependence on the government -- the central power."
Kazmierzak is an optometrist, wife, mother, and lover of freedom. She has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University and completed a residency at West Point Military Academy.
