Ostriches and Lions

Kuehnelt-Leddihin, Eric V.
April 1980
National Review;4/4/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 7, p418
The article discusses on how communism in the Soviet Union has affected the world politics. According to the author, a number of Europeans, while rejecting Communism more or less decisively, still hope against hope that the Soviets might have forsaken their plan to conquer the rest of the world. According to the author, Communism exercises a world-wide attraction. It speaks the language of economics, in a way that mobilizes the envy of the many. In the name of some elevated "social justice" it wants to expropriate from the rich for the benefit not of the poor, but of a thoroughly oppressive state capitalism.
