In the "Herut" newspaper, Begin analyzes and criticizes communists, deeming them as willing slaves. He first shares his amazement in watching the Communist world following suit with Russia in the de-Stalinization campaign. He argues that as willing slaves, communists will do and believe whatever their leader tells them. Begin then shares a conversation he had with a Russian officer while he was a Russian political prisoner. Begin concludes that willingly being a slave is shameful for the slave and that he is thankful that he is a free man.
