Bad in theory, bad in practice: anti-communism versus the labour and popular movements

On behalf of the Communist Youth Movement of the Netherlands, I would like to thank the Communist Youth of Turkey for organising today's seminar, and for the selection of the topic of anti-communism. We consider this a subject of the utmost importance. In our daily work, one of the most dangerous illusions one could foster is the idea that anti-communism is no longer a threat, because the youth in the Netherlands and the rest of the Western world are no longer being raised in the Cold War mindset. We risk deluding ourselves into thinking that this automatically makes them more receptive towards class consciousness, or at least less prejudiced towards us.
