Happy May Day: A hundred million people were murdered by Marxist dictators in the 20th century

That basic truth cannot be repeated often enough. That figure comes from left-wing historians in France. If you thought totalitarianism would fade away after the Cold War, think again. North Korea keeps concentration camps for 200,000 people, according to recent satellite photos. The moral difference among Hitler, Stalin, and the Kims is zilch, zero, nada. There are no moral distinctions among willful mass murderers.

Liberals never seem to get that elementary point.

As Paul Johnson points out in his crucial book, Intellectuals, prominent Western professors and media heroes consciously enabled mass murder all over the Nazi-Marxist world. They still do. That is knowing, criminal collusion in murder on an unimaginable scale.

Big-name philosophers in England and France supported both Hitler and Stalin — a sort of serial mass murder-enabling racket. Paul Johnson’s book is an essential read.

But liberals everywhere are in denial about the new totalitarianism, which is exactly like the old totalitarianism.

The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression is a book authored by several European academics and edited by Stéphane Courtois, which describes a history of repressions, both political and civilian, by Communist states, including genocides, extrajudicial executions, deportations, and artificial famines. The book was originally published in 1997 in France under the title Le Livre noir du communisme: Crimes, terreur, répression by Éditions Robert Laffont. In the United States it is published by Harvard University Press.

Efficient Government Agencies

How to cut government spending where bureaucrats will WANT to cut!

It is a well known and quite understandable reaction of any bureau to make sure that the current year’s budget has been spent by the end of the fiscal year, even on unnecessary projects, else they lose it. Personal interest should have every employee watching for any possible waste of the taxpayer’s dollars.

A new budgeting policy for each bureau should be established, where any unspent budgeted funds at the end of the fiscal year shall be equally divided up and paid out to all of the employees in that bureau, and, then the lower budget figure, pre-disbursement, would be used for the next fiscal year, with, again, any unspent surplus being distributed to the employees who made the surplus possible.

No money would be saved the first year, but from then on every department would have continuously lowering budgets. Could the cost of running the state be cut in half in three years? I think so. The bottom line would be far more efficient and less costly state services.
