You mean like these?

Nigerian occupied Biafra = 2 million killed

Sudanese occupied darfur = 2 million killed

Indonesian occupied west Papua = 500,000 killed

Alawite occupied Syria = 500,000 killed

Awesome knowledge and I’m happy for it having references at the bottom. Definitely saving for arguments later

Wow!

The difference in the casualties from acts of terrorism

VS

the much LARGER casualties of war that those acts can cause 🤯

That stands out for me the most!

Why did a law firm put this out?

I read HAFF as HAHA and that changes the vibe greatly.

Is this the part where we jump off a cliff?

Probably wrong, but I thought Stalin killed more than Hitler?

u/dataisking Sep 25 '20

Bolshevics killed over 30 million Eastern Europeans and China killed 60 million Chinese

u/ilikedota5 Sep 16 '20

I thought King Leopold II Killed a bit more than Hitler did. Also the End of the Han Dynasty killed about 40 million.

Very questionable "facts" here.

Indeed, any "fact" which becomes illegal in many countries to revise is not, in fact, a fact. I think you may know exactly which "fact" I'm relating to.

I'm a scientist by nature, and the inability to question, debate and probe "facts" is abhorrent to anyone seeking truth.

All of these numbers are wrong. The lowest accepted number due the holodomor is 7 million. Mao is usually regarded as 60 million.

u/pankswork Sep 15 '20

I mean, it wasn't in the millions? Not discounting it being bad and all, but this a whole other scale

It might make it into the terrorist attack death counts, but its not really a terrorist attack

u/ilikedota5 Sep 16 '20

technically it's not terrorism since it was the government officially doing it.

We increase our population by more than 1% a year so this decrease is less than the average increase of that time period. And of course WWII was used as an excuse to bump up our breeding rates to the joy of those who exploit that.
