At a recent conference, Lech Walesa, a friend of St. John Paul II and a key player in the defeat of Soviet communism in Poland in the 1980s, exposed the lies of the ideology that has claimed the lives of millions of people around the world.
The former president of Poland, Walesa was in Mexico to participate in the first Conservative Political Action Conference in the country.
In a Nov. 19 interview with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language sister news agency, the 79-year-old Polish leader explained why communism has to resort to police-state methods and persecution to maintain control of its population.
Walesa, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983, said that communism “doesn’t have a good program” and “doesn’t come with good ideas.”
