The article here reminds us that persecution of racial or religious minorities is often – if not always – associated with a totalitarian polity, and increasingly, another “religion”.
It is strange that today’s building chorus of anti-Semitism, now detectable almost world-wide, is greeted by the “liberal” left with gales of silence. For history shows us exactly what happens to “liberals” when the monster finally gets round to eating them too.
I would like to rescue the word “liberal” from the Stalinists who have pinched it for themselves, and restore it to us, along with “capitalist” which has suffered even worse lynching.
