Why Doesn't Communism
Have As Bad A Name As Nazism?

by Dennis Prager - March 24th, 2009 - Front Page Magazine

Given the amount [of] human suffering Communists have caused - 70 million killed in China, 20-30 million in the former Soviet Union, and almost one-third of all Cambodians; the decimation of Tibetan and Chinese culture; totalitarian enslavement of North Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Russians; a generation deprived of human rights in Cuba; and much more -- why is "Communist" so much less a term of revulsion than "Nazi?"

Dennis Prager is often one of our most interesting writers. This is an obvious question and yet one that almost never gets asked. Every liberal (progressive-socialist-communist whatever you want to call denizens of the left) will hurl Nazi at anyone on the right, without a moments hesitation. Forget for a moment the irony that Nazis were government control socialists and therefore more left wing than any conservative has ever been. The evils of communism and socialism have been well documented and certainly equal (if not exceed) the Nazis. So what gives. Dennis has a rational list of the reasons he thinks this is so. It is a good read and worth the time.
