And the West had every right to stamp out Bolshevism with prejudice, based on the ideology from which Lenin derived Bolshevism. You argue in favor of the same political philosophies which led to the 1889 French Revolution--during which by the way, revolutionary loyalists were murdered by their own party members same as the so-called enemy Royalists and supporters of the Church and nobility. Once again, under Lenin, loyal communist revolutionaries--many of whom had fought for Lenin, were slaughtered at his command along with anti-revolutionaries. And on and on the pile of Marxist derived philosophical mass-murder bones continued and continues to grow through Cambodia, North Vietnam and on, and on. What should have happened immediately post WWII is, is the bomb should have been used to bring Stalinist Russia to her knees, had we been able to manufacture enough of them--although the mere threat, post Hiroshima and Nagasaki could have been sufficient to achieving the task. Afterward, we should have installed a constitutional democracy in Russia post Soviet downfall, when the Russian people were starved for the same freedom from years of world war oppression as we Americans. The great historical mistake on our part was to dance with one devil in order to crush another, smaller one. Hegelian, and Voltarian derived, atheist dominated, Marxist led ideologies are indeed the most lethal ideological viruses to ever infect the human mind--your mind, apparently--included. Or perhaps, you are simply roleplaying the part. Belief is very difficult to achieve in the willingness of so obviously and intelligent individual such as yourself, in a political and religious--ethos really--which tends to not only murder the very working class it promises to liberate, but also tens of thousands and more of its own fanatic adherents. Marxism is the Russian Roulette of human political ideologies. No one can stop you or anyone else from spinning the cylinder and pulling the trigger. What we can and shall always prevent, however, is the rise of Marxism or its derivative ideologies to the forefront of American governing politics. Whatever the cost, and for all of our future generations.
