Editor’s Pick: Washington Examiner on Teaching the Evils of Communism

June 13th, 2022 5:16 PM

In an editorial’s for this week’s print edition, the Washington Examiner editorial board remarked on the opening of the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington D.C. and how it’s a reminder that this “deadly plague” is something that must be continually taught from generation to generation.

The editorial board made it clear from the get-go: “Communism always was and will be evil, not just in its application but in its very conception.”

Noting that communism’s “killed more than 100 million people worldwide” thanks to “unproved war, mass executions, intentional famines, and other diabolical methods,” the editorial conceded that “leading American cultural institutions (academia, the establishment media, the entertainment industry) have spent a full century downplaying the evils of communism, as if it is a noble dream that was never practiced correctly, rather than a conception that was nightmarish from the start.”
