You have delineated the boundaries of who needs to be afraid of the communist hypothesis and who doesn't very well. This is a division whose existence "dare not speak its name" in U.S. mainstream media discourse. I wonder if Europeans can really fathom how much sway anticommunist media rhetoric has over the populace, and how the "left" here is completely feckless and has not even a language with which to counter the neo Cold War rhetoric coming from the far right. Hopefully thinkers like yourself will emerge to re energize and at least inform if not radicalize a significant layer of people before it's too late.
