One and the Same

A recently published book by Yale historian Timothy Snyder, Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin, documents how Hitler and Stalin (as Glenn Reynolds puts it) "enabled each other's crimes." We need to see more of this.Communism and Nazism have far more in common than differences yet for decades the left has successfully managed to preserve itself from the taint of the Nazis, even though that word itself is an acronym for Nationalsozialisten and even though the two ideologies work to the the same end: earthly utopia and the extermination of those who might thwart it.

Comes the day the image of Che Guevara is regarded with the same abject horror as that of Josef Mengele the left will be a spent force.
