    Being anti communist is not the equivalent of McCarthyism.  That's the bullshit that the right wing would have you swallow, that you'red either a wingnut or a commie.  Communism is as anti human as Bush "ownership capitalism".  Both are religios propositions that assume things about the human condition that DO NOT obtain, and never have.  Both require centralized power and planning, state control of the economy, for really the same actual purposes, and require a fervent belief in the Leader.
      It's very sad and unjust that relatives have been persecuted or blacklisted because of beliefs, but it's just as sad that reactions to that include ignoring the evil of the ideas, the harm to the people, the spirit-deadening sequelae to the Russion Communist experiment.

    Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.
