Really? Pro-business dictators have the blood of MILLIONS on their heads?

As bad as some of the past mistakes of the US has been - and slavery is as much the fault of European mercantilism and monarchy - if not more so - than anything that ever happened in the US (because THEY started that particular version of slavery) - NOTHING has been as brutal and repressive as communist regimes (China and Russia in particular).

Stalin's successes ONLY came through repression and hard-line aggression toward his own people - as have all Communist "successes."

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
