Spiked -- Why students *heart* Stalin by Neil Davenport
'Championing the gulags comes all too easy to today’s campus crusaders. -- On Monday, the LGBTQ+ Society at Goldsmiths, University of London, tweeted in defence of Soviet-era gulags. Stalin’s forced labour camps, it said, would be an ideal mechanism for ‘dealing’ with TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists). Far from being a brutal penal system with a high mortality rate, they were a ‘compassionate and non-violent’ form of rehabilitation, said Goldsmiths LGBTQ+, adding: ‘Educational work was also a prominent feature of the Soviet penal system. There were regular classes, book clubs, newspaper editorial teams, sports, theatre and performance groups.’ It concluded that TERFs could be ‘eradicated through education’. -- ...This incident sheds further light on a truly retrograde tendency among a lot of millennials; namely, their opposition to hard-won, long-standing freedoms. Indeed, to be opposed to traditional liberties has almost become a sign of radicalism. So, the louder one campaigns for the eradication of others’ free expression and free thought, the more noble and principled one is deemed to be. It does not matter whether the student in question is secular or devout. For Islamists, this intolerance of others’ views is a sign of how committed one is to an uncompromising vision of Islam; for the left, it is a sign of how committed one is to eradicating oppression. Thus, today’s leftists are uncomfortable with free speech because it is viewed as a conduit for their political opponents’ ‘objectionable’ views, and is therefore ‘right wing’. -- Too many young people today mistake bans and restrictions for hardened political principles. This is why self-styled left-wingers increasingly feel no shame when alluding to, or even championing, Stalinism – especially the Stalinist opposition to a free press and democracy. Ironically, Stalinism used to be acutely embarrassing for those on the left. That was because, both as a social system and a set of ideas, it was anathema to anyone committed to expanding the realm of democracy and freedom. How fitting, then, that the gulag, the miserable apotheosis of Stalinism, should have been rehabilitated by those immersed in the campus culture of unfreedom.'
