most mass killings since 1950: ROP, ROL and ROM in competition

dec 2nd, 2007

looks like 'religion of marx' wins hands down in the period post 1950 over 'religion of peace' and 'religion of luuuuuv'

but then this list was probably compiled by some white of christist ancestry, so their crimes (eg. rwanda) are probably underestimated. or maybe the good times of mass slaughter for the ROL were earlier in the century, with WW1, WW2 etc. and earlier. the limeys alone killed off 30 million people in india, china etc. in 1880-1900 during some el nino famines which they handled brutally. (see mike davis, 'late victorian holocausts')

ROP is striving manfully to increase the body count imposed by it lately, but they managed to kill off 100 million in india alone between 1100 CE and 1700 CE.
