(p.191) Chapter 17 Pathos Versus Pestilence
The Triumph of Provocation

Józef Mackiewicz

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the damages caused by communism. It describes the errors committed by the Western powers in relation to international communism and offers arguments against those who questioned the correctness of the thesis that communism in the 1960s constituted a threat to the free world and that it was only a slogan that served as a screen for other goals. It also argues that the death of half the human race in an atomic war is not the greatest catastrophe and that the real catastrophe would be for all mankind to be living under the rule of the communist system.

Keywords:   communism, Western powers, free world, atomic war, communist system
