Socialism leads the world in the killing of its own citizens.
(These numbers do not include military deaths and are rounded down which doesn’t seem to detract from the point.)
Mao: 50,000,000 people killed.
Stalin: 20,000,000 people killed.
Hitler: 12,000,000 people killed.
Pol Pot: 1,700,000 people killed.
Kim Il Sung: 1,600,000 people killed.
All of these leaders were “democratically” elected at some point in their tenure. This is not the definitive list… just the current leader board.
And it only accounts for intentional killing of citizens, not the death resulting from unintended consequence of Socialist policy.
So why do we keep trying to put a happy face on Liberal Socialism?
Triva question: Can you name the last free-market capitalist dictator?
