Paddy McGuinness raises the discussion point:
Arguments among the comrades on the far left notwithstanding, why does Stalinism still not inspire anywhere near the same kind of horror as Nazism today?

This in relation to the death of Dorothy Hewett, a popular Australian writer and long time darling of the Left.

Surprisingly, Paddy failed to mention Hewett's admission several years ago that she and many of her writer colleagues routinely used their works to further the cause of Stalinism. Can you imagine anyone but the Left celebrating the life of an artist that used her talents to further the cause of dictators?
