WHY SOCIALISTS COMMIT ATROCITIES
by Rex Curry
| This is a book review
about a book that asks "why did many regular German citizens assist
the National Socialist German Workers’ Party in committing atrocities?"
The book says almost nothing about people in the former Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics and in the People’s Republic of China and the fact
that they both independently killed more people than did the monstrous
National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Together, the former
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the People’s Republic of China, and
the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (the “socialist trio”) committed
the worst atrocities of all time in the socialist Wholecaust (of which
the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million slaughtered under Soviet socialism
(the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics); ~50 million under Chinese
socialism (the People's Republic of China); ~20 million under German socialism
(the National Socialist German Workers’Party).
Some people have wondered whether
the book implies that Germans have a “bad culture” that causes atrocities.
It would make more sense to wonder why the philosophy of socialism
moves so many regular citizens of various countries to commit atrocities.
Many books that explore the mindset of the National Socialist German
Workers’ Party inexplicably fail to compare the mindset of the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics, the People’s Republic of China and all
the other examples of socialist atrocities.
"Hitler's Willing Executioners :
Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust" by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen would
be more illuminating if it were titled "Socialism’s Willing Executioners:
Ordinary socialists and the Wholecaust" and if it were expanded to
include the hate-spewing radical paramilitary societies created in the
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the People’s Republic of China, with
the horrid National Socialist German Workers’ Party (the “socialist trio
of the worst atrocities”).
To see graphic art depicting the socialist
trio of the worst mass murderers go to
According to R. J. Rummel's article in
the Encyclopedia of Genocide (1999)
the top three most murderous regimes are: (1) the Union
of Soviet Socialist
Republics, 62 million deaths, 1917-'87; (2) People's
Republic of China, 35
million, 1949-'87; (3) Germany under the National Socialist
Party, 21 million, 1933-'45. Socialists are nuclear bombs.
Socialism is nuclear war.
The modern socialist inquisitions were the deadliest inquisitions.
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
had hatred for the bourgeoisie, inspired by Karl Marx, who himself
intended to libel Jewish folks when he said they were the quintessential
capitalists and worthy of total contempt, in his infamous essay, “On
the Jewish Question.” Marxists and socialists had no
interest in “the weak,” only in the loyal, and their “language of
social justice” concerned a totalitarian plan for a new man, or more
accurately an ant in an ant hill.
The book provides a lot of information
that explains Wholecaust deniers and why most media use the word
"Nazi" to cover-up for the horrid "National Socialist German Workers'
Party," in a vain effort to rehabilitate socialism. Most media will
not fully identify the atrocious "National Socialist German Workers'
Party" and use the abbreviations "Nazi" & "Nazis" & "Nazism"
in a hackneyed lazy manner, so that there is now rampant ignorance
of the full phrase in the public, and now even in the media.
The table of contents and the index
avoid use of the phrase “National Socialist German Workers’ Party”
and substitute a hackneyed and misleading abbreviation. The
subject “socialism” isn’t even listed in the index, and the phrase
“socialist movement” is cited to a single page. The pact between
the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the National Socialist
German Workers’ Party whereby the two socialist groups were allies in
starting WWII http://rexcurry.net/socialistwar.html
and invading Poland (and where the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
killed more people in Poland than did the National Socialist German
Workers’ Party) is indexed as the “Soviet-German non-aggression
pact” and cited to a single page.
The book also fails to examine similar trends that were
occurring in the United States http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
under American socialists Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of
Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of "Looking Backward."
