The @BritishMuseum and its choice of language: Not cool.

Much of their work is informed by the sense of collective guilt experienced by the German people over its recent past, the country’s physical and psychological destruction, and the division of the country by two opposing ideologies – the democracies of the free West and the Communist system of the Soviet bloc.

You’d think a museum could afford to use more informed and less politically loaded language, as in ‘Capitalism’ and ‘Socialism’ instead of ‘Democratic and free’ v ‘Communist system’.
