Pretty meaningless statistic. I could say that tens of millions of Indians died as a result of British democracy. Or tens of millions of Iranians under US democracy. Or how about the people murdered under oppressive Islamist regimes?Again, it was the communist system that allowed the systematic torture, starvation and execution of a hundred million people. The British, Hitler, Pol Pot - all other genocides combined probably don't even come close to that figure.
Easy to say that when only exposed to US propaganda. I'm by no means saying that communism is a perfect ideology, but it's far better than fascism, religious rule (e.g. Sharia Law, Christianity back in the day), colonialism, etc.I'm just going to keep repeating the fact that communist rule killed more people than any other ideology ever. Because it's true.
You might want to keep apologising for it or saying "it's all relative" or whatever, but the fact is that when we are dealing with a totalitarian communist regime we have to keep in mind the fact that they've thought nothing of starving to death 30-40 million of their own citizens and then covering it up. You're not allowed to discuss the death toll from the Great Leap Forward in China or that will land you in jail.
We're allowed to discuss the death toll from Aboriginal colonisation without fear of going to jail. We have an open society here which in theory should prevent us going down the path of genocide again.
Not so in a communist country, they're not free. They don't have a proper rule of law, their courts are political and there's no attempt at justice in those countries.
