Fuhrer Furore

There will never be a satisfactory answer to the question of which monster was the more appalling, Hitler or Stalin, and it’s a largely pointless line of enquiry anyway, but if you want to test the proposition that there is still a strange lack of outrage over Communism’s savage past, ask yourself this.

And if not, why not?
