Communist ideology, as bad as Nazism?

Communist ideology, as bad as Nazism?
ANALYSIS BY ZOLTÁN DUJISIN
IPS NEWS

BUDAPEST — A declaration which equates communism to Nazism and condemns communist ideology as "directly responsible for crimes against humanity" has been debated in the European Parliament on the initiative of the Czech Presidency of the European Union.

The "Prague Declaration" was approved by the Czech Senate in June 2008. It calls for communism and Nazism to be recognised as the common totalitarian legacy of Europe.

It also calls for victims of communism to be properly compensated and perpetrators of crimes to be punished, while urging "acceptance of pan- European responsibility for crimes committed by Communism."
