But never before has the government singled out one citizen and said “This one! Right here!" .... Well, not here, but it sure happened in Communist Russia/USSR. This shiny miracle was called Show trial, worked every time like a charm. 200 million were living in constant fear, and every new one diverted attention from the general terror of living under communist rule. Permanently failed economy and everything that did not work according to "scientific communism", was blamed on ideological enemies: doctors, cosmopolitans, Jews. De ja vu all over again?
