Remember the Lessons of the Cultural Revolution in China

Instapundit notes the anniversary of the start of the Cultural Revolution in China:
Can it happen here? Probably not—at least not the way it happened in China. America’s equivalent of the Chinese “counter-revolutionaries” have more resources to fall back on and hence can afford to push back. (They are also increasingly armed. Even I, the original Miss Fumblefingers, have a mean-looking (though antique) firearm in my bedroom. Just thought you’d want to know.) 
Still, when faint echoes of the Cultural Revolution occur hereas they frequently do these days—I get butterflies in my stomach. Our civilization, like every civilization, is in many ways more fragile than most people understand.

  1. It was one big government-sponsored lynch mob and, when the quotations of the country's absolute ruler are treated as Holy Writ, this is what you get.

    This sort of thing happened here 50 years ago. The Kgb was behind it then; now it's Dr Evil.
