Talgo: All Students Should Visit Victims of Communism Museum in Washington




By Chris Talgo - 

When I was in eighth grade, one of the things I remember most during my class trip to Washington, DC was our visit to the then-newly opened United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Why? Because unlike almost all the other museums and monuments we visited during our trip (most of which I thoroughly enjoyed), the Holocaust Memorial Museum provided a stark and lasting realization of how incredibly evil humanity can become when a people embrace socialist ideology. Yes, for those who need a reminder, Nazism stands for national socialism.

Since that trip to our nation’s capital, a strange thing has occurred. Socialism and communism, once viewed as an ideology on par with Nazism in terms of its wickedness and depravity, is now viewed quite differently among most of the nation’s youth. In fact, according to several recent polls, a majority of young Americans now have a favorable view of socialism.
