Dinesh D'Sousa Says it best

D'Sousa states my own point about Communism and its propensity towards butchery on 221

"In other words, the atheist blood bath is the product of a hubristic modern ideology that seesman, not God, as creator of all valu the truth. In rejecting God, man becomes scornful of the doctrine of human sinfulness and convinced of the perfectibility of his nature. Man now seeks to displace God and create a secular utopia here on Earth. In order to achieve this, the atheist rulers establish total control of society. They invent a form of totalitarianism far more comprehensive than anything previous rulers attempted: every aspect of life is under political
supervision. of course if some people - the Jews, the landowners, the unfit, the handicappe the religious dissident and so on- have to be relocated, incarcerated or liquidated to achieve this utopia, this is a price the atheist tyrants have shown themselves quite willing to pay. The old moral codes do not apply, and ordinary atheist functionaries carry out behavior that would make a church inquisitor quake. The atheist regimes, by their actions, confirm the truth of Dostoevsky's dictum: if God is not, everything is permitted."

D'Sousa states my points as to the inevitability of communist butchery quite well.

And they intend on achieving perfection through "critical theory" aka - circular logic.

Just keep pushin' Sisyphus' rock and riding Ixion's wheel.

Never stop and listen to the "wisdom" inherent in Orpheus' song.

I understand and respect the Christian ideal (and its antecedent, the Platonic ideal) but alas, we live in a post-Christian (and post-Platonic) world - and heaven and perfection is no where nearer to being on Earth than it was before Jesus Christ or Plato came along.

The sobering reality is this: if a man cannot perfect himself, what hope does he have of perfecting someone else?

That said, D'Souza too falls into the fallacy of thinking that leftists are actually capable of rational thought, as if his pointing out the failures of the the left's penchant for totalitarian hubris is actually going to make a leftist stop and think.
