    Communist Regimes Kill Millions!


    Would Karl Marx be proud of the death count from his theory of communist? Probably not, Marx was a dreamer who didn't take into consideration the consequences of his theory.

    Accordingto Klas-Göran Karlsson,discussion of the number of victims of Communist regimes has been" extremely extensive and ideologically biased".
    [29] Although any attempt to estimate a total number of victims of Communism depends greatly on definitions,[30] several attempts to compile previously published data have been made:
    ˇ According to R. J. Rummel's book Death by Government(1994), about 110 million people, foreign and domestic, were killed by Communistdemocide from 1900 to 1987.[31] In 1993, Rummel wrote: "Even were we to have total access to all communist archives we still would not be able to calculate precisely how many the communists murdered. Consider that even in spite of the archival statistics and detailed reports of survivors, the best experts still disagree by over 40 percent on the total number of Jews killed by the Nazis. We cannot expect near this accuracy for the victims of communism. We can, however, get a probable order of magnitude and a relative approximation of these deaths within a most likely range".[18]
    ˇ In his introduction to the Black Book of Communism (1999), Stéphane Courtoisgave a "rough approximation, based on unofficial estimates"approaching 100 million killed.[o] In his foreword to the book, Martin Malia noted "a grand total of victims variously estimated by contributors to the volume at between 85 million and 100 million".[p]
    ˇ According to BenjaminValentino in 2005, the number of non-combatants killed by Communist regimes in the Soviet Union, People's Republic of China and Cambodia alone ranged from alow of 21 million to a high of 70 million.[q][r] Citing Rummel and others, Valentino stated that the"highest end of the plausible range of deaths attributed to communistregimes" was up to 110 million".[q][s]
    ˇ In his book RedHolocaust (2010), Steven Rosefieldesaid that Communism's internal contradictions "caused to be killed" approximately 60 million people and perhaps tens of millions more.[32]
    ˇ In 2011, Matthew Whitepublished his rough total of 70 million "people who died under communist regimes from execution, labor camps, famine, ethnic cleansing, and desperate flight in leaky boats", not counting those killed in wars.[t]
    ˇ In 2016, the Dissident blog of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation made an effort to compile updated ranges of estimates and concluded that the overall range "spans from 42,870,000 to 161,990,000" killed, with 100 million the most commonlycited figure.[u]
    ˇ In 2017, Professor Stephen Kotkin wrote in The Wall StreetJournal that Communism killed at least 65 million people between 1917 and 2017: "Though communism has killed huge numbers of people intentionally, even more of its victims have died from starvation as a result of its cruel projects of social engineering".[v][33]
    The criticisms of some of the estimates were mostly focused on three aspects: (i)the estimates were based on sparse and incomplete data when significant errors are inevitable;[34][35][16] (ii) some critics said the figures were skewed to higher possible values;[36][w][34] and (iii) some critics argued that victims of Holodomor and other man-made famines created by Communist governments should not be counted.[37][34][38]

    When will the world learn? Now, with Venezuela, we have a new record of atrocities from communism.
