Oh Happy Day! NBC refers to Communism as “pivotal experiment”
Rejoice, fellow victims of communism!
We are soooooooo special! Super special!
We're the equivalent of lab rats, bacteria in a petri dish, chemicals heated by a Bunsen burner.
The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) declared Russia's seven decades of communist totalitarianism a "pivotal experiment" in its history.
Yes, a "pivotal experiment."
One must assume that the "experiment" extended to other countries, including Cuba, was also pivotal.
Yes, "pivotal." One must assume that NBC interprets the extermination of millions of human beings and the enslavement of millions more is no big deal, just a slight swerve, or "pivot" in the timeline of human history.
NBC's Orwellian turn was noticed by Ed Driscoll at PJ Media:
George Orwell, call your office. As he wrote in “Politics and the English Language,” in 1946, such euphemisms are “designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable,” and certainly describing Communism as “one of modern history’s pivotal experiments” fits the bill in spades.

And another wonderful article, quoted by Driscoll can be found HERE. It's "The Worst Idea in the World," by Robert Stacy McCain -- a critique of Marxism/socialism/communism that should be required reading for every human being on earth.
