The crimes of communism do not need any comparison in order for them to be established historically and humanly. In fact we are not interested about either comparisons or excuses. These crimes encapsulate within themselves even genocides in Lemkin’s notion. The Soviet Union’s crimes are not the only ones included within them. That is responsible for the 1932-1933 Holodomor, the 1936-1938 Great Exile, for the 1939-1941 German-Soviet Pact for Non-Atrocity, for the Gulag up until 1953, for the repression of Hungary in 1956, for the repression of the Spring of Prague In 1968. There are many more in addition. Let’s examine some of them so there is no speck of doubt to be left regarding them. In China, we find Laogai from 1950 to 1960, and even later on with changes, the 1959- 1961 Famine , the cultural revolution which constitutes a genocide, the occupation of Tibet. In Cambodia the Khmer Red committed a genocide from 1975 to 1979. In North Korea, communism committed crimes with death camps from 1948 up to today. In Cuba we find imprisonments, up to death sentences and concentration camps. Stalinism, Maoism, the Khmer, the dynasty in North Korea, and castrisme are all expressions of communism. The fact that they are separated in relation to the countries in which they have occurred doesn’t change anything in substance. It is the same ideology that has been used in order for these systems to commit these genocides and crimes against Humanity. There is no impeachment re: these events at the level of Humanity. Now, if some have ideological hindrances and are unable to be expressed in such a clear way, that does not concern Humanity or its history, but the States where they live and are elected. But if you can’t accept the barbarism of a system and of an ideology you support, it means that you don’t in the least respect human rights and you can’t formally represent a country which is democratic and respects them ever since its existence.
