What's The Difference Between

An ex-Nazi and an ex-Trotskyist? Both subscribed to equally loathsome, intellectually and morally bankrupt ideologies but only one sort is able to continue in public life. Guess which.

Im all for rehabilitation of offenders and forgiveness, but can we be absolutely safe from the propagation of pernicious dogma hidden in plain sight under another agenda?

Perhaps a better occupation would be drawing up lists of ex-Trotskyists in public life to enable their quarantine.

Add Marxist to Trotskyist, please.
Real, Stalinist " correct" Marxists hate Trotskyists almost as much as they hate Nazis but all three are equally morally reprehensible.

Of course, the Marxist/Trotskyist creed was quantitatively by far the more murderous.
As Robert Conquest put it

"There was an old Marxist called Lenin,
Who did one or two million men in.
That's a lot to have done in,
But where he did one in,
That old Marxist Stalin did ten in."

An Mao Tse Tung and comrades hugesly more.
