How few remember this forgotten horror, yet we fought against it. Little did we know the actual depraved horror of the enemy we faced. At times we tried to reason with it. And, as we reasoned it was devouring multiplied millions of its citizens. This monster leaves Hitler far behind in the category of "criminal".
There are few who have attempted to estimate the carnage this monster has spread over this earth. Few who wish to awaken to the horror that has been lustfully splattered across the hidden history pages of the 20th century. What would one say to 100,000,000 (one hundred million) slaughtered by the monster of communism and totalitarianism?
Oh, and just in case you missed it, the main target of this monster was freedom of conscience. Still further burried in the deepest hidden pages of the hidden pages of history is the grusome reality that the main target of this monsters hate and rage were...are you ready???...
And very, very few know...and still very, very fewer care...and it has taken place in many of our life times...right under our noses.
And, yet today many see democracy as the evil empire trying to conqure the earth. Yet it was the birth of the Federal Republic that birthed the death of totalitarianism, and, she still stands in the face of the monsters rage and putrid hatred.
Many of the Republic's citizens now hate her and curse her. The very one who has shed her precious blood to free the haggard citizens of pure, abject terror.
Oh, the sorrow of delusion.
To begin to take a primer in the blood bath go here where you will find this conclusion...
IMPORTANT NOTE: Among all the democide estimates appearing on this website, some have been revised upward. I have changed that for Mao's famine, 1958-1962, from zero to 38,000,000. And thus I have had to change the overall democide for the PRC (1928-1987) from 38,702,000 to 76,702,000. Details here.
I have changed my estimate for colonial democide from 870,000 to an additional 50,000,000. Details here.
Thus, the new world total: old total 1900-1999 = 174,000,000. New World total = 174,000,000 + 38,000,000 (new for China) + 50,000,000 (new for Colonies) = 262,000,000.
Just to give perspective on this incredible murder by government, if all these bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5', then they would circle the earth ten times. Also, this democide murdered 6 times more people than died in combat in all the foreign and internal wars of the century. Finally, given popular estimates of the dead in a major nuclear war, this total democide is as though such a war did occur, but with its dead spread over a century.
