Pete Seeger Acknowledge The Realities Of Stalinism

I guess it's better late than never. The famous folk singer, Pete Seeger, known for his pursuit of social justice and being an avowed communist has finally admitted (somewhat) that he was wrong to support Josef Stalin. It may seem like much ado about nothing as Stalin has been dead for over 50 years, but this is an incredibly important point in the ideological debate between the Left and the Right. Why, so many will ask, do those on the Left scream for "social justice" "civil rights" and "free expression" in America when at the same time they either support or make excuses for regimes that crush these principles? Some didn't believe in freedom but used it as a means to an end, and others were simply deluded either by an incredible hatred of America and thus a belief that anyone against the USA must be good, or a deep desire to believe that a utopia is possible and it's happening somewhere in the world. I suspect Seeger has always been in that last category.
