Pol Pot was a stain on the 20th century. Not so much for the amount of slaughter that he perpetrated, but for the crazed rationale behind it. Socialist slaughters were common and some produced a far larger body count than Pol Pot (Hitler was responsible for around 70 million deaths, Stalin and Mao were not far behind), but Pol Pot killed all those that were more intelligent and better educated than himself. Why? No one will ever really know the answer to why someone is psychotic.
That is now the mindset of some in the US, the last (and quickly shrinking) bastion of Western Civilization. The militant socialists are after blood – the blood of those who are more intelligent and rational (and less violent) than themselves. Why? Same people, same answer.
Ostensibly, socialists murder people to get rid of ‘dissidents’. The problem is that the longer they manage to cling to power, the more poverty and hunger ensues and the greater the number of people that wake up and become dissidents. Socialism is not just a destroyer of capital and thus prosperity, it is a destroyer of human lives in ever-greater number.
Beware the Pol Pottists. Their first aim is to disarm those that are intended for slaughter.
