"Communism has claimed the lives of more than 100,000,000 people in less than 100 years ..."

Senate Resolution 150
109th Congress, 1st Session
The Senate of The United States
May 19, 2005

The Senate of the United States precisely characterized (above) the atrocities of a radical brand of socialism – Communism.

A number of rocketeers and space enthusiasts perished on march to the socialist paradise, especially in the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China. (See Blazing the Trail, AIAA, 2004 for the historical and technological context.) They were arrested, tortured, and sent to concentration labor camps where excessive hard work, savage living conditions, starvation, and abuse by guards took a tremendous toll.

Two cultures and science illiteracy of "intellectuals"

Pages 273-275 in Blazing the Trail describe what happened to a few leading Soviet rocketeers.

Page 444 in Blazing the Trail describes some relevant events in the Red China.

These millions of innocent people were annihilated by social engineers of enthusiastic socialist states, who were being aided, abetted, and admired by numerous leftists in the West. Without this help of the international left, the human cost of Communism would have been much smaller and the forces of freedom would have won the Cold War much sooner, finishing off the Communist ideology.

Such moral clarity among "intellectuals" would have also prevented present-day rise of neo-progressive Marxists on U.S. campuses, in media, and elsewhere, threatening the Free World again.

In 1949, the Life magazine printed a gallery of photographs of 50 representative "dupes and fellow-travelers dressing up Communist front organizations" in the United States. See the text of the Life feature and photograph captions, identifying these individuals.
