Here’s another interesting column from Jonah Goldberg, this time on the evils of communism. These are interesting “whats”. These are good real world example of what happened under communism. To continue his “interesting question” thread, why do such evils occur under communism or fascism or other forms of totalitarian leadership? Because it can?
Addendum: How timely. This article provides a great example of how bad things can happen in totalitarian regimes. Josefina Bravo, quoted in the article says it perfectly, “That’s the problem we have: All the powers are concentrated in the president.”
