The point of this article is that opposition to the reds was based primarily on unfounded fear. That is why it is important not to have an supported sentence like the following in the intro:
- Fear of radical revolutions became prominent in 1919-20.
Who feared them? Why? Were these good reasons? If not, who says not? Why?
We know that one-third of the world's population fell victim to Communism. The idea that it nothing but a "scare" makes no sense. This is not like the unfounded fear of Alar on apples. --Ed Poor Talk 13:32, 18 November 2008 (EST)
