Cancel Culture for Communists

In his Law & Liberty column, the good doctor considers the case for the retraction and withdrawal of Mrs. Ceaușescu’s bogus scientific papers and her laughable foreign honors.

There is something to be said for and against the withdrawal of the honours she received (for example, from the British Royal Institute of Chemistry): she clearly didn’t deserve them but they were awarded as a matter of historical fact. If honours can be withdrawn once it becomes politically expedient to do so, then not only are no honours permanent, but honours themselves become a permanent field for political dispute, since no one apart from saints has no blemish on his record to be discovered by the assiduous termites of research.
