Communism with a Human Face

IN "1984," readers will recall, George Orwell uses the character of O'Brien to show in horrible detail the bruality of Communism: "If you want a picture of the future," O'Brien tells Winston as he tortures him, "imagine a boot stamping on a human face -- for ever."

In 2004, the Communists in China have gone far beyond just using boots, as this report from the English version of The Epoch Times reveals.

(N.B. We consider ourselves a pretty hard-boiled type, but the photos in the report are extremely disturbing -- to the point where we felt a bit sick).

That is so morally repugnant I don't have any idea what to say.
