There have been many blog articles discussing the Obama campaign posters with the candidate illustrated in Socialist Realism or Heroic Worker Realism style. This article by Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs, has an appropriate selection of Soviet art to illustrate the point. I am appalled (or should I say, embarrassed?) that my generation has raised or educated a younger generation to yearn, in Obama, for the Stalinist romanticism that deceives one about the inhumanity of socialist totalitarianism. Obama The Hope is the product of our educational failure.
