From First Things – “The Russian Revolution’s centenary (2018) is being met with a mix of romantic myth and Orwellian revisionism. The Russian Revolution was an epic human tragedy, which deserves to be publicly mourned.”
The number of deaths under Communist regimes in Russia, China, Cambodia and Cuba have never received the kind of attention they deserve and the universal lament that is their due.
Of course, it is their own people who were being killed, but the absolute horror of these pogroms should shock us still. Instead we will be served a still warm serving of “dashed hopes” instead of the dark evil they were. The Left press just can’t bring itself to judge utopian socialism in any but a sentimental manner.
