Communism killed 94M in the 20th century, feels the need to kill again

Quote:



Information is Beautiful

According to a disturbingly pleasant graphic from Information is Beautiful entitled simply 20th Century Death, communism was the leading ideological cause of death between 1900 and 2000. The 94 million that perished in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan, and Eastern Europe easily (and tragically) trump the 28 million that died under fascist regimes during the same period.

During the century measured, more people died as a result of communism than from homicide (58 million) and genocide (30 million) put together. The combined death tolls of WWI (37 million) and WWII (66 million) exceed communism’s total by only 9 million.

It gets worse when you look at the lower right of the chart—The Natural World—which includes animals (7 million), natural disasters (24 million), and famine (101 million). Curiously, all of the world’s worst famines during the 20th century were in communist countries: China (twice!), the Soviet Union, and North Korea.


Communism is a killer. And yet some still say they support the idea: According to a 2011 Rasmussen poll, 11% of Americans think that communism would better serve this country’s needs than our current system.

Today we have masked self proclaimed communists marching in the streets pointing at anyone who disagrees w/ them and calling them "Nazis". The funny thing is the people who they are crying about are not Nazis but even if they were historicly communists have been way more detrimental to human civilization then the Nazis could have even dreamed of being. So why is it that the controlled media and the education system are presenting these domestic terrorists as some sort of folk heros as they are publicly undermining the legally elected POTUS and supporting violence towards his supporters. IMO it is the globalist agenda. We are no longer looking at a right vs left or R vs D issue but an international nationalist vs globalist agenda. Even the schools are trying to paint nationalism in a negitive light when just a few years ago it was celebrated. This is to keep the people at war w/ each other and not paying attention to the nefarious workings of the state and the international take over by the corporations and the banks and those who are pulling their strings from behind the scenes.

You are a fool! Capitalist propaganda forced our great leaders to act! At times diseased flesh must be cut away. These deaths are on the backs of capitalism. Not communism

I enjoy reading about Communism and just how much that ideology was just so wrong on so many levels. The economic model just did not work. Full scale socialism is a failure. A lot of leaders in a lot of these nations knew that their economic system does not work at all, but kept it anyway. The Chinese and the Vietnamese (and the Laotians) basically threw out economic Communism 35 years ago or so. The Tiananmen Square incident of 1989 was to me not a complete failure, the Communists granted the people a lot more freedoms and backed off from their lives. Capitalism started before under Deng Xiaoping but accelerated after that. The guys in Beijing who killed thousands on that one day decided that if the people had enough cars, Hello Kitty shit, mobile phones and Kentucky Fried Chicken, all would be good and it worked. So the Chinese Communists know that Communism is mostly bullshit, except for the One Party aspect of it.

The people were so repressed. In many nations, (and still in North Korea) one had to get permission from the government to travel to another part of their own country. National police forces that acted as spy agencies on the population (KGB, Stasi, Securitate, Sigurimi etc.) to keep the people scared and in check. So this really means that the leaders on top again knows their economic model is a complete failure and you are forced to scare the people to keep them from overthrowing and shooting you (like Nicholai Ceausescu and wife in Romania). The Communists also knew that their economic system was such shit that people in droves were running away from it, to the point where most of these nations had strict laws up to a treason offense just for leaving the country. Again, keeping the people prisoners, under a failed economic system where people are supposed to be equal yet the leaders lived like royalty and everyone else liked dogs.

Then there are how many people were murdered or disappeared. Probably a hundred million people is accurate. Millions of Russians and Chinese died of starvation because of the horrid and idiotic economic policies and the failure of agricultural collectivism. Pol Pot killed up to 40 percent of the population in Cambodia. I went to the Killing Fields and saw the skulls. Even picked one up. No shit. Got really, really, really drunk that night (Sharkey's Phnom Penh, if you weren't killed, you had a great time). But a lot of those people who died under the Khmer Rouge were starved to death. Also, why was it necessary to be so cruel to the common people, the barbarity of it all. Then the fucking Chinese supported these mass murdering thugs, and fought a war against Vietnam because Vietnam defended themselves against the Khmer Rouge who invaded their country. But this could be more about East Asian politics, which is loonier than a Porky Pig Cartoon. Illegal in Saudi Arabia.

That's all.

Communist killed scarcely anyone, ever, whereas monopoly and state capitalism always kill millions upon millions to save every penny of profits for those who own the capitalist state. Everyone actually knows this - what benefit could it possibly be to ordinary working people to kill others?

LOL, it is better to not type and look silly than it is to say stupid things like "Communism killed scarcely anyone".
