The victims of communism should not be forgotten. Philip Reynolds writes:

In the heart of Washington, D.C., behind the doors of a building not unlike the others with which it shares a block, lies a most visceral testament to the horrors of communism—a political ideology still all too dominant in the world today.

The new museum, from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, has been in the works for many years. It opened to the public on Monday.

Entering it is like walking into a vault. Or possibly a tomb. Passing by a wall with large, embossed words reading, “REMEMBERING the victims of Communism,” the space quickly darkens and narrows.

  1. Hypothetically, imagine if a group of people got to be in control of many nations’ money supply around the world, and using that power steadily became dominant over governments, the judiciary, corporations, the media, and with the help of the intelligence agencies infiltrate and suborn all political movements in said countries. Wouldn’t it be useful to them to identify as a race/religion/other minority and bring in ‘anti-discrimination’ laws or actions such as ‘cancelling’ to attack anyone pointing out the situation. That is why it is important to have freedom of speech and why it is far more important than people’s feelings (whether genuine or politically motivated).
