More on WWII

Rudy Rummel reports new death-by-government figures for China:
Civil War-Sino-Japanese War 1923-1949 = 3,466,000 murdered
Rule over China (PRC) 1949-1987 = 76,000,000 murdered

Boy, the US sure did the Chinese a big favour by "liberating" them from the Japanese and handing them over to Mao, didn't it?

    Though I'm far from an expert on the region, I think the US supported the Kuomintang, not the Communists.

    It's possible the peasantry and urban intellectuals would have been better off under the Japanese. But the Japanese didn't look upon either of these groups as equal, so who knows what would have happened in the long term?

  2. Yes, what I meant was "with the result of handing China over to Mao," not "with the intention of handing China over to Mao."

    And certainly, I can't know the Chinese would have been better off under the Japanese than Mao, but it's seems pretty likely.

    I suspect a billion chinese would think you wrong. But, then again, they've been worked over in state learning factories.

  4. And, of course, the 76 million Mao murdered don't get a vote at all, do they?

    The dead obviously couldn't vote, but if they could 76 million would still be a minority.

  6. Why can't the dead vote? They do in Chicago.

    The article is so wonderful that I want to write something about myself.
    I am so happy to get some latale online gold and the latale gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the latale money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy latale online gold with the spare money and I have gained some cheap latale gold from other players.
