Japanese Imperialism 12,705,105

Imperialism is the act of a nation’s ruling class forcing its control over another nation. This is done to gain control of markets, natural resources and labour markets for profit. These things are spent according to need, but for the profit for a small number of individuals.

As usual, people seem to have forgotten that the US constantly supported Saddam throughout his entire reign as ruler of Iraq. They were instrumental in his rise to power as he was an operative of the CIA and was assigned to kill his predecessor. He ultimately failed to kill him, but stayed on as ruler in US favour until the War on Terror.

The Desert Storm War was the US reaction to Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait, until that time Saddam thought as a US client he could do whatever he wanted. When he didn’t lean after that war, Iraq was invaded again. The second time it was for trading oil in Euros, that was the real reason for the second invasion.

The Nazi’s were NOT socialists. Ownership of production was in the hands of private individuals. Socialism is the opposite. The Nazis believe Aryans were a superior race, socialists believe everyone is equal. Nazis are the opposite of socialism. Stop trying to pass off right wing capitalist crimes onto us.

Capitalism, the absolutely undisputed greatest killer of all time. Known true evil.

  1. great post. finally a post where i can lead people who argue communism killed x number of people.

  2. Pingback: Left-wing Radicals vs Market Radicals: the true danger | Radical RHUL

  3. This is a very non-extensive list. The general things, starvations, early deaths from over work, lack of health care, mental neurosis from stress–these uncalculable points are massive. From what I’ve seen, you’ve only included interventions of imperialism, not inclusive of that.
    A better, but more difficult fight, would be to discount the large inflation of Stalinist/Maoist deaths. The remaining can usually be explained by historical context and mass poverty.

    • Yes it is non-extensive, but this was all I was capable of at this time. Its hard to collect all the information I would like. I personally took on Mao’s supposed famine in another blog post.
