But a century of communism in power—with holdouts even now in Cuba, North Korea and China—has made clear the human cost of a political program bent on overthrowing capitalism. Again and again, the effort to eliminate markets and private property has brought about the deaths of an astounding number of people. Since 1917—in the Soviet Union, China, Mongolia, Eastern Europe, Indochina, Africa, Afghanistan and parts of Latin America—communism has claimed at least 65 million lives, according to the painstaking research of demographers.

A CENTURY AGO THIS WEEK, COMMUNISM TOOK OVER THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE, THE WORLD’S LARGEST STATE AT THE TIME. LEFTIST MOVEMENTS OF VARIOUS SORTS HAD BEEN COMMON IN EUROPEAN POLITICS LONG BEFORE THE REVOLUTION OF OCT. 25, 1917 (WHICH BECAME NOV. 7 IN THE REFORMED RUSSIAN CALENDAR), BUT VLADIMIR LENIN AND HIS BOLSHEVIKS WERE DIFFERENT. THEY WERE NOT MERELY FANATICAL IN THEIR CONVICTIONS BUT FLEXIBLE IN THEIR TACTICS—AND FORTUNATE IN THEIR OPPONENTS.

EDITOR’S NOTE: American hate groups like ANTIFA base their poison doctrine on the collective works of Stalin, Lenin, Marx and Engel, all of whom advocated starting their subjects out with the gateway drug of Socialism leading to Communism. Millennials voted in large numbers for Bernie Sanders brand of Socialism which is right in line with Stalin’s brand of Socialism. So let’s take a look at the century of bloodshed and death caused by the very thing Millennials are currently infatuated with.

Communism entered history as a ferocious yet idealistic condemnation of capitalism, promising a better world. Its adherents, like others on the left, blamed capitalism for the miserable conditions that afflicted peasants and workers alike and for the prevalence of indentured and child labor. Communists saw the slaughter of World War I as a direct result of the rapacious competition among the great powers for overseas markets.

Communism’s tools of destruction have included mass deportations, forced labor camps and police-state terror—a model established by Lenin and especially by his successor Joseph Stalin. It has been widely imitated. Though communism has killed huge numbers of people intentionally, even more of its victims have died from starvation as a result of its cruel projects of social engineering.
