One hundred years ago today, Rosa Luxemburg was arrested and summarily executed by the German police.  She was the most outspoken socialist south of Soviet Russia.  Her intellect was too strong and her rhetoric too convincing for the German oligarchy.

All of Europe is remembering her today.  Socialism has been stomped on with propaganda, with violence, with control of the historical narrative and censorship of the news, with war and with political “contributions” from the rich and powerful.  But the ideas remain robust.  Social democracies offer the best quality of life of all the countries in the world.
