Le communisme n'a tué que 100 millions de personnes ; Il faut lui donner une autre chance !

Following Guy Sorman's common-sense decision to refer to Phnom Penh as The Nuremburg of Communism because of the Cambodian capital's Khmer Rouge trials, Le Monde gets inundated with reactions from intellectuals and readers saying that Karl Marx and his theories should not be rejected — how dare he?! — because of "mistakes" by communist régimes…

Or, as the Protest Warrior T-shirt proclaims:
Communism has only killed 100 million people; let's give it another chance!
