Go back and tell that to the retards in 1950. This particular retard knows all this already and doesn't need to be told. If you get your blood pressure down to the point where your eyes are in your head you can read my other comments and see that for yourself.
If you want to blame me for the fact that some people equated "communism" with "the enemy" 60 years ago, go right ahead.
To put this into some perspective for you: I was personally listed as a potential security risk by the Swedish security service and the military counterpart, just because some of my family members had been outspoken revolutionary communists in the 50s and 60s. I had also worked actively with an anti-apartheid group that had ties to ANC, which didn't help my case. It caused me some problems during my military service and later on when I applied for an job at the Swedish National Police Board.
Do I think that this fair? No. Do I think it is rational to believe that communism is some kind of hereditary disease? No. Do I think that it was necessary to have and keep that register for 30 years? No. But I still understand why that register was created. Some people were actually discussing armed revolt in the name of communism, and some of my relatives were among them. I know the reason why they thought a revolution could be necessary and their reasoning was completely rational. The rationale for the security service trying to stop an armed revolt is equally valid to me. This does not mean that any of them were right, but who says you can't do something wrong for completely rational reasons?
So, even if the effects are irrational, it doesn't mean that the cause automatically is.
