QotD

This one is closer to a mouthful, from Harvard's "Crimson" of all places.

For many students, casually endorsing communism is a cool, edgy way to gripe about the world.

The young but not blinkered woman cites the Black Book of Communism and goes on:
Roughly 100 million people died at the hands of the ideology my parents escaped. They cannot tell their story. We owe it to them to recognize that this ideology is not a fad, and their deaths are not a joke. In every country that communism was tried, it resulted in massacres, starvation, and terror. Communism cannot be separated from oppression; in fact, it depends upon it. Human beings are simply cogs in a machine tasked with producing utopia; they have no value of their own.
