…continuing denial, and maleducation, at The Nation.
We’re currently going though a period similar to that after the end of Reconstruction– In an effort to enable reconciliation, the people responsible for the horrors of Communism, like the defeated slave-holding Democrats, weren’t punished for the things they did. So the Democrats ended up in power and inflicted the Klan and Jim Crow and such on the country, and the Communists and fellow-travelers have similarly been allowed to prosper and to lie about and escape their culpability for the horrors of the 20th Century.
De-Nazification and De-Militarization of Japan worked, and shows what should have been done to both groups. We are going to have to do the same thing to the Islamists, unfortunately, or they too will be causing trouble for decades after their supposed defeat.
