    The listing is here:
    20TH CENTURY
    DEMOCIDE (Genocide and Mass Murder)

    More:
    DEATH
    BY GOVERNMENT

    Dr R.J. Rummel came up with 262,000,000 people killed by their own government.

    Power kills, absolute Power kills absolutely. This new Power Principle is the message emerging from my previous work on the causes of war and this book on genocide and government mass murder–what I call democide–in this century.

    The more power a government has, the more it can act arbitrarily according to the whims and desires of the elite, the more it will make war on others and murder its foreign and domestic subjects. The more constrained the power of governments, the more it is diffused, checked and balanced, the less it will aggress on others and commit democide. At the extremes of Power, totalitarian communist governments slaughter their people by the tens of millions, while many democracies can barely bring themselves to execute even serial murderers.
