For John, BLUF: Hiding from historic truth is not helpful. Nothing to see here; just move along.
So says Writer Sarah Hoyt.
The Holodomor is not a widely recognized genocide, because to remember it would be to acknowledge:
- Joseph Stalin was a horrible dictator who consigned millions to their death so he could conduct economic experiments, which failed, and
- To accept that Reporter Walter Duranty, and his newspaper, The New York Times, a Pulitzer notwithstanding, lied about what was going on in the Soviet Union in the 1930s.
