Headline: MIT Press Publishes “Communism for Kids” Book.
Me: I just hope it has pictures, like say, of the Gulags or the starving millions in China. #somethingtellsmeitwont
Or maybe it could be a pop-up book so the kids can really get a nice 3-D view of the atrocities committed by Communists.
Communism for Kids, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way.
“Once upon a time, people yearned to be free of the misery of capitalism. How could their dreams come true?” a plot synopsis for the book reads. “This little book proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.”
The book is full of cartoon drawings of “lovable little revolutionaries” that help navigate kids through the “evils” of capitalism.
“Lovable little revolutionaries?” Wait, seriously?
Like this cutey patooty who was responsible for the deaths of perhaps up to 70 million. In the words of Sean Spicer, even Hitler didn’t do that.
You know what, I think I’ll go with the Children’s Catholic Bible instead.
