Mao Tops List

R.J.Rummel, the premier scholar on 20th century mass slaughter, has updated his assessment on Communism’s deadly toll. Previously, he omitted deaths due to famine during the Great Leap Forward due to incomplete information as to the exact role of the central government. However, now he is convinced that Mao was at fault. Under Chinese Communism, the total deaths due to democide are:

73 million

148 million
The Left’s legacy will live in infamy.
