Former Bulgarian Prime Minister Discusses Threat of Communism

Philip Dimitrov, the former prime minister of Bulgaria, asserted that Communism continues to be a threat at a lecture in Kaufman Auditorium on Friday.
“To me, the threat of Communism is still there. Claiming that it doesn’t exist simplifies the problem to a point that puts us all at risk,” Dimitrov, now a professor of political science at the American University in Bulgaria, said.
He suggested that the terms “right” and “left” are outside the realm of Bulgarian Communism, which is far too complex and subtle to include them. “I personally do not believe in the distinction between right and left when it comes to utilitarianism and politics,” he said.
