True, but people were acting as if this list were written by Stalin. I just wanted to make sure people understood what it was.
As I said, you did raise a valid point.
However, the unlikelihood that the vast majority of what you initially implied were unsupported "opinions" would turn out to have a predictive hit-rate that would make Nostradamus green with envy leads me to believe that A) communists have indeed heavily influenced our culture, and B) Skouzer was right on about their plans. The notion that he was significantly wrong about them, but significantly wrong in precisely such a way as to almost exactly mimic the current Democrat Party platform of 50 years later, is a bit too improbable IMHO to take seriously.
