In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history
Communist regimes have aways made common cause with useful idiot intellectuals to oppress the enemies of the state.
The old Soviet Union routinely used morally pliable psychiatrists to make the case for the “insanity” of their opponents. In this way dissidents were imprisoned and, um, treated, which is to say tortured, by state psychiatrists.
The astute blogger Bookworm Room has just published an important essay by our mutual friend Wolf Howling about so-called climate change, a leftist religion that seeks to enforce its dogma on a global scale. The climate-change movement brooks no dissent; its green inquisition will not hesitate to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of any who might dare to question its fanatic doctrines.
Make no mistake about it: When the Soviet Union collapsed, the true believers of Marxism-Leninism migrated to the various eco-movements that seek to consolidate power and redistribute wealth on a global scale.
