…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
When looking for rough and ready informations on internet, people usually start, and unfortunately often end, with Wikipedia, which is rapidly turning into Leftipedia. So far one can find interesting facts and statistics there. It will not last for long. Socialist International will not allow it.
The figures below are for civilians deaths only. The victims of the lesser, more modern practitioners of the applied Marxism, such as Pol Pot and Castro brothers, are not included. The last two, Islam and socialism are still at it, of course.
Christianity – total 1,450,000
The Crusades 1,000,000
Witch hunts 100,000
Buddhist/Taoist/Confucian – total 63,446,000
Mongol Empire 29,927,000
Islam – total 4,000,000
Ottoman Empire 2,000,000
Persia (Iran) 2,000,000
Socialism – total 160,134,000
Marxist China 77,277,000
Marxist USSR 61,911,000
National Socialist Germany 20,946,000
Our Western “elites” are practically unanimous when looking for the causes of all the world’s evils. When the blaming capitalism would stretch credulity of an average TV citizen, they blame the Christianity. Old hypocrite Marx must be chuckling in his grave. The above figures might come handy when you are discussing the question whether a global socialist government could be the answer to the world’s current problems. Well, it could be the answer to the over-population.
I simplify it, so that it is easier to remember:
Obviously, one has to look at it from the Marxist perspective.
