The Foul and Cankerous Blight of Collectivism
Quite arguably, no greater scourge has reigned upon humanity than the superstitions of the primitive foreign ideology that marches under the inapt misnomer of "socialism".
With its ongoing war against Christianity, against the family, and against private property, socialism's barbarous march of mayhem and murder wreaked unfathomable havoc upon 20th century civilization.
An estimated human tally for the reign of collectivist destruction has been published by R. J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii and is included within the table below for easier access. The source of the figures in Table 1 is the website here.
