The frightening upsurge in people saying they’re Communists has a flip side. Which is that public interest in, and knowledge about, Communism, which are both currently low, will start to surge.
I think this is already starting to happen, such as with The Death of Stalin film. I’ve noticed a lot more discussion of Communism in the last year than I have done in previous decades. And I think the endless (and mostly justified) interest in Nazism in the UK is starting to slow down, and I suspect Communism will fill this void.
Although I’m not holding my breath, perhaps then more people will start to realise what a horrific system Communism is. Let’s just hope we don’t have to endure a hard-left Corbyn-McDonnell-Milne government to discover it for ourselves.
