May Day

Today is May 1, which means it's May Day -- still a holiday for unreconstructed communists. Over at Volokh, Ilya Somin proposes that May 1 be used to commemorate the victims of communism. The folks at Distributed Republic -- formerly Catallarchy -- have gathered a series of posts commemorating the victims of communism.

I heartily concur. The 20th Century knew two murderous totalitarian ideologies -- Nazism and communism. The victims of the Nazi Holocaust are often remembered, but the victims of communist holocausts -- plural -- are oft forgotten. Well, not by me.
