It seems silly but we need to remind folks that Communism is evil. Marc Thiessen at the Washington Post is up to the task. If you think there is some question about the evil of Communism you should read the whole thing. If not, here is some evidence from Marc on the misunderstanding of Communism:
Sadly, this twisted view of communism is being passed on to the next generation. A recent poll by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found that just 36 percent of American millennials have a “very unfavorable” view of communism — the only American generation where this number is less than a majority. Worse still, 32 percent believe that more people were killed under George W. Bush than under Joseph Stalin. The ignorance is stunning. The first post-Cold War generation has been raised almost completely unaware of the evils of communism.
The Donald’s administration has much to be humble about. Marc give us a data point that makes us happy he replaced his predecessor and won a year ago:
The Trump administration marked this week’s 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution by declaring a National Day for the Victims of Communism.
Yea! There is always work to do. If you want to recommend a book to somebody try The Draining Lake by Arnaldur Indridason. It is a great work of fiction that helps explain why the Communist menace doesn’t go away.
