A great, if depressing, book to read about the central challenge of the 20th Century is "The Black Book of Communism," written by six European historians, three from the left, three from the right, shortly after Yeltsin opened the Soviet archives of the Communist International movement. 100 million people killed as the "experiment" with communism was repeated in one nation after another, always with the same insane, predictable result: mass killings, engineered famines, gulags. Even the three writers who began this writing project on the left, when confronted by the enormity of the crimes of communism against often defenseless and blameless populations, came to realize that this was without doubt the greatest horror ever visited upon mankind. Even the crimes of the Nazis pale against the 100 million needless deaths attributed to communism––from its own archives and beginning right from the start with Lenin.
