In the twentieth century, governments murdered, as a prudent estimate, 272,000,000 men, women and children. It could be over 400,000,000.“
~ Rudolph Rummel: The Blue Book of Freedom: Ending Famine, Poverty, Democide, and War (2007), p. 75
As the quote from Rummel above indicates, those in government, and those that control government, are nothing more than mass murderers. They as individuals, either directly sanction murder, support the system that prosecutes murder, stand silent in the face of murder, or turn their heads the other way in order to allow murder. These distinctions are irrelevant from the perspective of blame, for without this cooperation, the killing would be much more exposed, and therefore less likely to occur. Please do not mistake my comments as placing actual blame on such abstract entities called government or state, but on each and every individual that participates in the governing process that causes or leads to the slaughter of innocents.
Try to consider the absolute brutality waged against the innocent by the controlling and political classes during the twentieth century, and then realize that what has happened to date, and what is coming, could lead to both mass genocide and democide of the world’s population; so much so as to be many times greater than in the past.…
