How to not create a democracy

Three things connect the Reign of Terror, Third Reich, Great Purge, and Great Leap Forward:
1. The people in power claimed they were helping the working class by targeting the “bourgeois”.
2. Their claim of who they were targeting was absolutely bullshit. Most of the people killed in these 4 events were impoverished.
3. Not one of them led to democracy. All four led to forced labor. All were unnecessary and completely avoidable acts of pure evil.
In memory of our loved ones.
In memory of our ancestors.
Lest we forget.
