October 2017 marked a very important anniversary, the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik communist revolution in Russia that led to the creation of the Soviet Union.
The 20th century represents, as one major historian has named, “the century of megadeath”; and at the center of that “megadeath” is the great lie and deception, the great evil that was the communist revolution and the communist regime in the Soviet Union.
Soviet communism almost surely led to well over 100 million deaths. Add to that about 300 million deaths that came in the wake of the Maoist communist revolution in China.
Communism isn’t dead. Look at the fact that the Chinese Communist Party is resurgent in China.
The fact is, the worst ideas come with the worst consequences. The deadliest ideas come with the deadliest consequences. And we also need to remember the fact that evil ideas are not only evil, but they tend to stay around for a very long time—with their effects long outlasting the death of their promises.
