Horrors of Nazism vs. communism and socialism

Aug 18, 2012

I am grateful that there are the likes of Professor Walter Williams serving the truth boldly in the academic arena. We have appreciated his common sense economic and social commentaries for years. The following column is especially timely in light of my most recent (and other) lectures in my Bible study series, Mystery Babylon and the Stone Kingdom. The most recent are CD #619, lecture #30: Tracing the Ancient Reds and CD #620, lecture #31: Tracing the Modern Reds, with more to come. Downloadable order form here.

Commentary by Dr. Walter E. Williams:

In Europe, especially in Germany, hoisting a swastika-emblazoned Nazi flag is a crime. For decades after World War II, people have hunted down and sought punishment for Nazi murderers, who were responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people.

Here’s my question: Why are the horrors of Nazism so well-known and widely condemned but not those of socialism and communism? What goes untaught — and possibly is covered up — is that socialist and communist ideas have produced the greatest evil in mankind’s history. You say, “Williams, what in the world are you talking about? Socialists, communists and their fellow travelers, such as the Wall Street occupiers supported by our president, care about the little guy in his struggle for a fair shake! They’re trying to promote social justice.” Let’s look at some of the history of socialism and communism. (Link to rest of commentary here.)
