Yo, all of my subliterate conservative criticasters who find perusing and processing the sesquipedalian verbiage of my posts to be such a bothersome brain-taxing chore, I have a new nickname for you. Henceforth you shall be known as Pooh Bears. No, not for the obvious apt reasons, i.e., not because you're full of pooh, and not because of your ursine irritability. Rather, you put me in mind of an A.A. Milne quote, "I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me". Love ya, Pooh Bears.

Overall Hitler killed around eleven million; this includes six million Jews and five million ethnic Polish/Slavic, Roma gypsies, and so on. It seems you included all of these minorities within the same six million statistic.

Additionally, those killed under Stalin's regime are estimated at higher than ten million.

Thank you for this bit of accuracy. However, the capitalist world-system still ranks, by far, as the number one life-taker in history.

I guess that is what you get when you try to mold people into your vision of the "ideal man."
"Here the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire." F. Nietzsche.

"Freedom is always freedom for the one who thinks differently." R. Luxemburg.

"The principle of the masochistic left is that, in general, two blacks make a white, half a loaf is the same as no bread." G. Orwell, paraphrase.

"Islamophobia is a word created by fascists, used by cowards, to manipulate morons". Andrew Cummins.

This is simply untrue. Capitalism did not kill more. I would like to see your math.

The thing is, the capitalist world-system is not a person. It is not even an actual being. Declaring it the responsible entity doesn't make much sense.
But since we're already at it, Malaria is believed to have killed about 50% of all people that ever existed.
I also claim that human nature, which includes things like greed, anger, envy, mental disorders and, oh yes, mortality, has killed more people than the capitalist world system.
And lastly, I proclaim that either the universe itself or its cause is responsible for every death that ever occurred.

No, you got that wrong. Every time an Asian dies, you clap.
