Catallarchy marks May Day

Over at Catallarchy, the May 1st remembrance is for those victims of totalitarianism:

Welcome to Catallarchy's annual Day of Remembrance. Contrary to the promises of ideology, nations whose governments pledged to create a workers' paradise usually became places of rampant slave labor. The plight of the less fortunate became even less fortunate. Today, we chronicle a small part of their lives.

Not really totalitarianism. Just the totalitarianism the blinkered twit doesn't like. Posted by: Alan at May 2, 2006 01:04 PM
That's our Alan! "Death camps? Yay!" Posted by: Jon at May 2, 2006 02:23 PM
Alan may be attempting to point out that Catallarchy seemed to concentrate on atrocities committed by leftist rather than rightist totalitarian regimes. At least, I think that's what he was trying to convey . . . Posted by: Nicholas at May 2, 2006 03:45 PM
BINGO!!! "Totalitarian" is a word nutcases hate as it is actually non-political and descriptive, one of those words that loses finger pointers the chance to blame everything on "the others" out there. Posted by: Alan at May 2, 2006 07:53 PM
