Book: Love Letter To America

Published in April 2021 by Mayside Books, an imprint of WireNews Limited, Tomas Schuman's "Love Letter to America" is available in paperback via Amazon or eBook at Google Books.

Dear Americans,

My name is Tomas David Schuman. I am what you may call a "defector" from the USSR, and I have a message for you: I love you very much. I love all of you — Liberals and Conservatives, "decadent capitalists" and "oppressed masses", blacks and whites and browns and yellows, rednecks and intellectuals. For me, you are the people who created the most unique nation, the most unique country and society in the history of mankind, — by no means, a perfect one, but let’s face it — the most free, affluent, and just nation in today's world.

I am not alone in this love. People all over the Earth, whether they praise America or bitterly criticize her, look upon you as the only hope for mankind's survival and the last stronghold of freedom. Some may not think in these idealistic terms, but they certainly enjoy the fruits of your civilization, often forgetting to be grateful for them. Millions of people in the so-called "socialist camp" or in the "Third World" literally owe their lives to America.


Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov, was a former KGB officer and journalist who worked for the Novosti Press Agency and who ultimately defected from the Soviet Union to Canada. Yuri chose freedom. Writing as Tomas Schuman in Love Letter to America, Yuri describes Soviet genocidal Communism and explains how good it is to be free.


Love Letter to America was originally published in 1984. This Origin of Books edition has been only lightly edited to correct some of the more egregious mistakes left by the former publishers. I have tried, as much as possible, to retain the original flavor and unique personality of the author.
