John M Ward reflects on mass murder as a left-wing phenomenon:
I have occasionally mentioned that most of the world’s mass murder for a very long time (centuries at least) has been a result of left-wing (predominantly formal Communist) governments and régimes. The Wikipedia article on this was and is useful, but I have checked out other sources, to be more solid on this for the ‘blog.
There are a number of such sources, but this one by Paul Bogdanor is a good compilation of relevant material, including a very good collection of quotations of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky and various others. Remember that most if not all senior Labour party people and many Trades Union bosses have studied one or more of those Communist leading lights, and some have admitted their leanings (including apparent “moderates” such as Alistair Darling and Alan Johnson).
In practice, there’s very little difference between Labour’s actions and those proposed by the quoted leading lights of the Left, except that we never quite got to the point of mass murder here in Britain. The planned street rioting and emergency powers to control it were definitely planned, though, and I have previously provided the clues to this and more, such as here.
A bit of investigation provides interesting corroboration for this notion.
