This is why I'm finding myself recommending people to read Animal Farm more often these days lol

There are many more modern day communists than actual National Socialists, which is the scary thing.

Two sides of the same coin.  Repressing free speech - both silenced the voices that disagreed with them and bred an ignorant populace unable to oust them.

Or -
"How to get the heads of Communists and Nazis to explode at the same time."
I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that the allusion is to the Marxist-Leninist states and not communism generally.

One is an abyss of tyrannical bureaucracy that hates borders, the other is an abyss of tyrannical bureaucracy that loves borders.

What part of Berlin Wall and Iron Curtain Do you not understand?
Sharklord1's avatar
Still hard to find which is which, though I'm guessing hitler hates borders while Stalin loves them

Precisely the opposite, actually. Communism was founded as an internationalist movement, therefore intent on tearing down borders, while National Socialism is, well, Nationalist, which, by definition, defends borders. Of course, Russians were quite intent on defending their own "temporary" borders, just as a preliminary defense of the so-called 'progress' already made by their revolution. Hitler wanted to defend Germany's borders, he just wanted a MUCH bigger Germany to put a border around, perhaps the border ultimately being the upper ionosphere. Russia, on the other hand, wanted to forcibly tear down everyone ELSE's border, until all were unified under the Soviet Ionosphere.
Totalitarianism, by any other name, would smell as putrescent.

Meanwhile Hitler wanted the whole of Europe to be Germany. Nationalism my arse.

Their mutual and ironic hypocrisy was inevitable. The worst tyrannies are unchecked, unaccountable bureaucracies. The Pen is crueler then The Sword.

It's pretty sad how the core theme of this piece is either completely misinterpreted or willfully ignored by so many commenters.

Sad, but not surprising. Keep up the good fight.
