UPDATE: On rereading the NYT obit, I couldn't help but notice that they describe We the Living as"an anti-communist film." It is, of course, but it's anti-fascist as well."Anti-totalitarian" or"anti-collectivist" would be more complete descriptions, and, given the historical use of the expression"anti-communist" in America, less misleading. Just a thought.
UPDATE 2: David Boaz has more here.
