Remember, in the 20th century:
- One man's individual drive and industry saved about a billion people*;
- The impersonal forces of market-based capitalism redeemed about one billion people;
- And international Communism? ...Well, at least we kept them from killing more than one hundred million people.
Sorry to repeat the point, but it never hurts to remind folks that there was a right side, and a wrong side, and the Commies were on the wrong side.
*Please note, by the way, that Norman Borlaug quite rightly felt that GMO opponents were, well, idiots with no historical awareness. This is largely because Norman Borlaug was a product of his time and culture, which was largely intolerant towards idiots with no historical awareness.
