The hard lessons of Communism lost on today’s Marxist youth in America

The single deadliest ideology of the 20th Century, bar none. Hundreds of millions killed, millions more living as virtual slaves to the state. Yet, somehow, in the America of 2012, we have countless young people who are utterly clueless as to what Communism really was, and is. Or, if they do know, it doesn’t seem to bother them. Which is only more troubling. To them, Communism is a fashion statement. Hence, your hipsters in their Che Guevera shirts. Where would they be getting the idea that Communism is ‘cool?’ Oh, right, from their teachers! This is a real ‘Catch 22’ situation: In a free society, how do we legally prevent people of a certain political persuasion from entertaining the teaching field? Yet, what becomes of us if we continue to allow socialists (some of whom openly call themselves ‘Communists’ and ‘Marxists’) to warp our kids’ minds? We’ve had a half-century or more of this Marxist brainwashing in our universities, and look at the destruction it has wrought in our culture. I wish really wish I knew the answer here …

DR. PAUL KENGOREWhy have we failed to teach America’s kids about the horrors of Communism?
