Today is International Victims of Communism Day.
And we need to really push this one, because it’s direly needed.
In an infamouis 2016 survey of millennials:
- 32% of Millennials thought George Bush killed more people than Stalin
- 42% didn’t know who Mao Zedong was
- 37% thought Lenin was the good guy.
By all rational accounts, Communism has been the greatest human disaster ever to befall mankind. Greater than Naziism, which is the only accessible yardstick. Nothing else in human history is even close.
And yet at any gathering of Millennials, you’ll find a bobblehead in a Che t-shirt, and a few more parroting the Bernie-Bro platitudes that are Communism’s entry level drug.
Maybe it’s time to crowd-source a production of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
