The ‘Compassionate, Nonviolent’ Gulags

Listen to the September 13, 2018, episode of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show.

Apparently the Soviet gulags weren’t so bad. They were actually a “compassionate, nonviolent” course of education and leisure aimed at reforming criminals. In today’s show, Trumpet contributing editor Richard Palmer examines the truth about communism, showing that our modern ignorance goes much further than merely some ignorant college students who believe Soviet labor camps were a free holiday. Also on today’s show, Europe’s latest push toward an army, and the Catholic child abuse scandal continues to shake the church and the pope.
