Like its evil twin of Nazism, communism is an utterly despicable ideology that explicitly elevates the state over the individual.

That’s actually the nicest thing that can be said about this barbaric system. If you want to begin to understand the human cost of communism, watch this short Reason TV video featuring Lee Edwards.

Sometimes, it’s helpful to mock this disgusting philosophy with humor, as Reagan did so effectively (see the fourth video at this link and the first video at this link). Or we can use jokes like this doctored image.

And we can point out that communism is so inefficient that you wind up with rationing of everything from food to toilet paper.

But let’s not forget that communism isn’t just a sad page from history. Some people are still suffering under the yoke of Bolshevik tyranny.

Here are some excerpts from a report in the Australian.
