Why bring up communism again? Isn't the idea dead? Haven't most communist societies collapsed?
The answer is that the tragedy has never been properly memorialized, its victims rarely acknowledged. Too many too easily brush aside the suffering that occurred. Today, we do our small part to remember some of the victims. Keep them in your thoughts--the millions of victims of communism worldwide, the Cossacks extradited to the USSR by nations of the 'free world', the victims of the Khmer Rouge, and the North Korean laborers in modern day Russia and Czech Republic.
