Mussolini, founder of fascism, was an avowed socialist whose political career encompassed many years as editor of the socialist magazine Avante. Since the subject is raised, Nazi stood for "National Socialist"; Milosevic was a high-ranking official of the Serbian socialist party; Stalin was a communist. Castro is a communist; the Khmer Rouge was run by communists; Mengistu was a satellite of Stalin.
The point being, has there been a single massacre by a totalitarian in the last century that did not originate from the political Left?
Joe, whose strongly suspects that your view of the role of government far more strongly resembles an intelligent understanding of fascism.
