There was a song from the anime "Trigun" where a pacifist with an undeserved reputation for killing millions uses his tarnished fame to scare a bunch of kidnappers into letting their hostages go. Whilst tracking them down in a warehouse he goes on the intercom he sings the following song;
I won't leave a single man alive.
La di die die!
La di da di dud.
And ocean of blood.
The killing time."
I was naturally reminded of this toe tapper when I saw this chart in of all places, the National Geographic.
Not exactly known for its right-leaning politics, I'm amazed they showed this chart showing their socialist predecessors killing more people than any other group in the world. And need I remind you those "right-wing Nazi's" were in fact, socialists.
