Democratic Propaganda

The People’s Cube is a political satire site run by a former Soviet citizen, and it’s very, very good. Like all good satire, it hits uncomfortably close to the mark. The site is especially damning of those who are doing their best to turn the United States into a ‘worker’s paradise’.
