Good to know.

I read archive article and saw archive videos during the cold war era where liberals often argue against conservatives that the Soviet citizens just wanted freedom, just like Americans.
Needless to say, that conservative thought soviets were inherently evil and would never embrace the concept of individual freedom as the Americans know it: freedom of speech, freedom to live where you wish to, freedom to travel, etc...

Vladmir Pozner, Phi Donahue and Ted Koppel were organizing forums dubbed "friendship", where American liberal were reaching to Soviets students while American conservative were highly suspicious of them.

You're here to say those freedoms are not important to a Russian and the American conservatives were somewhat right. - minus the "evil" part.
