In Response to: His Secret Life

I went into this article expecting to read a tale of contrition or remorse from Mr. Schevitz, especially given the destruction wrought upon thousands of innocent people by the Communist dictators of East Germany and other Soviet Bloc nations.

Instead, we are met with dissembling, obfuscation and post-hoc rationalization. Mr. Schevitz’s current justifications for his behavior 40 years seem as bad, or worse than the original actions. It is a bit ironic that Mr. Schevitz chooses to live out his dotage in what is now a free, democratic society that he actively worked to undermine.
