The Forgotten Hundred Million
Glenn Reynolds looks at an alternative May Day proposed by Ilya Somin which would commemorate the 100 million victims of world Communism. Somehow I think the idea of treating Communism's victims like those of the Nazis will meet resistance. In the Bay Area at least.
There are any number of organizations which daily ascribe the death of millions to capitalism, or the slave trade to Europe and America. And doubtless many accusations of historical cruelty would be true. But the list of accusations would be incomplete. The Arab slave trade existed too. So did the Gulags. And so, perhaps did 9/11. We forget this at our peril.
