comment When were the lictors abolished?
Greek terms for lictors: ραβδοῦχος, ἀρχι-ραβδοῦχος, ραβδοφόρος. This can be helpful.

Indeed, but on the other hand there were masses of people who sacrificed their lives rather than property to fight Communism. Also Anti-Communism was widely supported by poor people who had no property.

@Felix Goldberg given Nazi cruelty against Communists and the close resemblance of that of White Russians, I see them to be closely connected.

@Mark C. Wallace, of course, in Europe the most people were Christians, what's wrong with it? Regarding fear about loosing property, you can make an answer, but I already addressed this point: many people sacrificed their lives, not only property, to fight Communism.

@Felix Goldberg in beginning of XXth century Europe there were quite little people who hated both Communism and Fascism. Most people who hated Communism, supported Fascism at the same time. The situation changed after WWII.

@Gangnus that is quite obvious to me: if you hate Communism, you support the guys who are against it. There is nothing to answer here. The question why those people hated Communism even if they did not object against authoritarian government and repressions. This leads to a conclusion that they had other reasons for the hate.
