    Once I was given as a teenage, a black book with a red star on it and it was a Bircher book.  When I came home with it the color drained from my father's face he took the book and threw it away in anger. You see he didn't even know it was a Bircher book it was enough that the book was black and had a red star. You see my dad worked for the air force as a civil servant welder.  Any hint of anything communist under his roof he felt could have been the end of everything like his job and his way of life.  
    This was a real fear.
