"Quotes attributed to Stalin reflected his utter disregard for human life. Among other bons mots, he allegedly declared:“Death is the solution to all problems. No man -- no problem,” and “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.”
Part of the problem with counting the total loss of life lies with the incompleteness and unreliability of Soviet records. A more troubling dilemma has to do with the fact that many some deaths – like starvation from famines – may or may not have been directly connected to Stalin’s policies.
In any case, if the figure of 60 million dead is accurate that would mean that an average of 2 million were killed during each year of Stalin’s horrific reign – or 40,000 every week (even during “peacetime”).
If the lower estimate of 20 million is the true number, that still translates into 1,830 deaths every single day.
Thus, Stalin’s regime represented a machinery of killing that history – excluding, perhaps, China under Chairman Mao Tse-Tung -- has never witnessed."

I've never said that, not once, ever. What the fuck is it with you and lying? Is it your crazy desire to never lose an argument? Is it maybe you don't ever want to admit that you and I might actually agree on something?

I've always and only stated, referring to condoms, that people should buy their own.

I'll make you a deal, though. Prove you right, prove me wrong. Supply the post where I justified pedophilia and I will leave Topix forever and ever.

No.

The "failed agricultural reform", especially Trofim Lysenko's pseudoscientific nuttery, killed ten million people. It's called "famine".

According to the declassified Soviet archives, during 1937 and 1938, the NKVD detained 1,548,366 persons, of whom 681,692 were shot

That was the "Great Purge", the greatest number of executions in Russia's History. Fr from the 20 million RR and Buck are making up out of thin air.

As for Pol Pot, the Buddhist:
Modern research has located 20,000 mass graves from the Khmer Rouge era all over Cambodia. Various studies have estimated the death toll between 1.7 million and 2.2 million, with perhaps half of those deaths being due to executions.

So Pol Pot only executed about 1 million people NOT the 10 million Buck and RR claim (esp. considering the largest population Cambodia ever had was less than 8 million people)

I am not condoning these dictators, just being honest with the facts, something 'Christians' have a hard time understanding.

Oh shit.

200,000 Chinese living in Cambodia died in 1975 because of Pol Pot.

20,000 died when he forced the people out of the cities to work the fields. Ever hear of Pol Pot's "killing fields"?

Anyone that was even suspected of disloyalty to Pol Pot was executed.

There's plenty more. If you wanna read about Pol Pot's evil actions, here:
