Dear xm177e2... I was wondering if you've ever read a rather large tome, difficult to get ahold of in the US for obvious reasons, called The Black Book of Communism.?

It's a compendium of scholarly essays by a dozen or more French scholars, a few of them Jewish, recounting in lengthy, scholarly, and nauseating detail the triumph of Bolschevism during the Twentieth Century and its murder, by one means or another (not counting combat casualties, either) of over 100 million people.

In it, the extended role, (out of all proportion to their numerical presence in Russian society), of Jews in the Russian revolution and the following decades, is recounted.

It should not be considered by a rational person as anti-Semitic to note these data, since all of them, or nearly all of them, come from the essays by Jewish scholars themselves.

But it is mentioned more than once how the post-WWII European and American Left were at huge pains to paint German Naziism and Italian Fascism as phenomena of the RIGHT, whatever that might actually be, and to associate them closely with Republican Oibertarianism, or Liberal Democracy, or however you care to designate the political beliefs and practices of the American Founding Fathers.

This book should be required reading in all American universities, and yet you will not find it in more than a tenth or less, of our academic libraries.

It's huge, detailed, and its references along account for a probably a quarter or more of its volume.

If you can find it, read it. I haven't checked Amazon yet since I ordered it from England via Barnes & Noble.

Received it from the hands of an elderly British Lefty crone, who could not disguise her contempt for the idea of listing Leftist crimes.

"Perhaps we should have a Black Book of Capitalism?" she sneered when I expressed my eagerness to get started on it.

English Lefties are far far more obnoxious than our brand, since they don't stop short going all the way.

But the Fiction of "Right-Wing Totalitarianism" persists, and God only knows when this straight-jacket for the mind will finally be shed.

All the best,
