‘a storm wrecked beach’ – Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler

‘The Age of Social Catastrophe.’

‘The Germans made Lenin, and Lenin made Hitler .. the Germans made Lenin, because they ferried him and his compères from Zürich to Petrograd in 1917, as a way to cause a Revolution and end the war [o]n the Western Front. Bolshevik barbarism, begun by Lenin and ably furthered by Stalin..’

Antonio, review Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler: The Age of Social Catastrophe

‘Many authors glorify war and revolution, bloodshed and conquest. Carlyle and Ruskin, Nietzsche, Georges Sorel, and Spengler were harbingers of the ideas which Lenin and Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini put into effect.’

– Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, page 645

‘..the near entirety of the social science community betrayed humanity .. failed .. to fulfill their vital scientific duty..’

– Jesús Huerta de Soto (Context)

‘The real danger here, is the erosion of individual rights and liberties through political ideology. Lenin and Stalin saw any individual as expendable for the benefit of the State, regardless of innocence or guilt; whilst Hitler saw any non-German as expendable, also regardless of innocence or guilt. (German Jews, and gyps[ie]s etc weren’t considered `German’, and homosexuals and handicapped people weren’t considered racially acceptable). Both regimes killed millions of totally innocent people as a result. And both ideologies were spectacularly dismal failures, in relation to their stated goals. (One reason why we should keep international human values (e.g. ethics), science and journalism (i.e. keeping in touch with reality, rather than political ideology), and respect to the process of law as our most valuable and precious possessions. The alternative is the expendability of the individual, including you and me, for no other reason except a particular psychopath’s individual delusions).’
