    I just realised that the whole “fear of communism collided with freedom of thought and expression” thing is similar to how “hatred towards fascism” has collided with “political freedom of thought and expression” and “Fascist” has (in a way) become its own buzzword thrown around to describe anything political that people really, really despise.
