Imagine how few know the millions Mao and Stalin killed. No wonder they think socialism is "cool".

Imagine them not knowing the difference between communism and socialism.

Imagine thinking there's some way to draw an objective line between "hot" and "warm."

You shouldn't be. Our public education system in this country is the laughing stock of the rest of the western world.


As a young adult product of the public school system I would say we spent quite literally months on world war 2 when you roll up the various grade levels and angles (us history vs world history or the European vs pacific for instance).

Anne Frank’s diary being one of probably 4-5 required readings, schindlers list, our text books etc...

As someone noted that so many know the names of concentration camps but not other basic information is bizarre and lends itself to some variety of polling issue.

Know what else they don't know...more than 500,000 white Union soldiers died to free black slaves.

These should be mandatory reading for all high school students:

The Gulag Archipelago
The Einsatzgruppen Reports: Selections from the Dispatches of the Nazi Death Squads’ Campaign against the Jews
Witness to the Holocaust
The Destruction of Hungarian Jewry: A Documentary Account.


Motorcycle Diaries might not be a bad one to add to the list. Let all those edgelords see what they're celebrating.

Motorcycle Diaries.

I was in the Northern Peruvian Amazon off and on for three years. The fallout from the propaganda Che spread was ongoing well into the 90’s even after the capture of Guzman (leader of the Communist, Sendero Luminoso). The depreivation and toruture this man caused would make you want to split the skull of the next punk you saw with a Che shirt on. He never killed anyone in combat and died a cowards death begging for his life.

But he did kill a 6 year old orphan for "stealing" food.

Che was a virulent racist and homophobe so I'd like people to see that in his own words.

Kind of makes sense, seeing the way they embrace communism- the most bloodthirsty mass murdering ideology of them all.

You're quoting a Marxist communist.

Why not quote a democratic socialist?

Almost a quarter of respondents (23%) said they believed the Holocaust was a myth, or had been exaggerated, or they weren’t sure. One in eight (12%) said they had definitely not heard, or didn’t think they had heard, about the Holocaust.

According to the study of millennial and Gen Z adults aged between 18 and 39, almost half (48%) could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto established during the second world war.


I suspect there are largely the same buffoons who reflexively parrot social media memes about political issues without vetting, scrutinizing, or analyzing them. A generation seemingly incapable of attaining knowledge or engaging in critical thought.

Most of the deaths were from Typhus. And it was nowhere near 6 million which the media and Soviet Union were parroting even at the beginning of the war.

Half this board ridicules humanities programs in college, calling them “useless,” and they’re surprised when this happens?

How do you think we got to this point?

Teaching to the test and STEM STEM STEM. That’s how.

The problem is the Humanities programs have become much more focused on trivial and useless areas rather than on actual history
