  • Democide

    07/30/2022 4:19:05 PM PDT · by algore · 23 replies ^ | R. J. Rummel
    Democide is a term coined by political scientist R. J. Rummel for "the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.” Rummel created the term as an extended concept to include forms of government murder that are not covered by the legal definition of genocide, and it has found currency among other scholars. Democide is death by government relating to genocides. Democides are not the elimination of entire cultural groups, but rather groups within the country that the government feels they need to be eradicated for political reasons and future threats. According to...
  • A Moment for the Late R.J. Rummel, Who Documented the Murderous Nature of Government

    It's horrifying that it's both possible and necessary to parse different kinds of mass slaughter by governments. But the fact is that hundreds of millions of people have been murdered by states because of their membership in ethnic groups, religious beliefs, opposition to the regime of the moment, expediency, or for sheer bloody-mindedness. The term "democide," encompassing all killing by a state (including politicide, genocide and mass murder), was coined by Prof. R.J. Rummel, who died March 2. Democide matters, according to Rummel, who authored 24 books examining the murderous nature of the state, because of its mindboggling scope. It...

    Patrick H. Dobson History 3090 Fall 2005 Professor Gagnon   A Brief Synopsis of the Desegregation of Private Catholic Schools in the South   Private schooling has a long and reputable role in the history of the United States of America. Private schools predate that of public schools in the United States and continue to be a very reasonable alternative to public schooling. Historically, private schools have been prominent institutions of the New England and Midwest, rather than in the impoverished South or that of the newer West. During the 1950’s and 1960’s, America was experiencing a social movement that...

    Wednesday, December 15, 2004 The killing machine that is Marxism By R.J. Rummel With the fall of the Soviet Union and communist governments in Eastern Europe, too many have the impression that Marxism, the religion of communism, is dead. Hardly. It is alive and well in many countries still, such as North Korea, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, a gaggle of African countries, and in the minds of many South American political leaders. However, of most importance to the future of democracy, communism still pollutes the thinking of a vast multitude of Western academics and intellectuals. Of all religions, secular...

    R.J. Rummel after the many years of research argues that freedom is the best solution to some of the most serious humanity's problems. His research is well known and open for thorough examination. The Bush Administration's Forward Strategy of Freedom is based on these very principals of promoting freedom.R.J. Rummel just published a book Never Again: Ending War, Democide, & Famine Through Democratic Freedom  and discusses it at his website: [excerpt from the book] Executive Summary To promote freedom for everyone is to promote human security for all.Human SecurityHumanity now has a practical cure for foreign and civil war,...

    Our century is noted for its absolute and bloody wars. World War I saw nine-million people killed in battle, an incredi ble record that was far surpassed within a few decades by the 15 million battle deaths of World War II. Even the number killed in twentieth century revolutions and civil wars have set historical records. In total, this century's battle killed in all its international and domestic wars, revolutions, and violent conflicts is so far about 35,654,000. Yet, even more unbelievable than these vast numbers killed in war during the lifetime of some still living, and largely unknown, is...
  • Misperception Of The Abu Gharib Prison Abuses

    Until now, I have not commented on the abuses at the Abu Gharib prison for lack of solid information. Were, for example, the Iraqi prisoners captured after firing on Americans and other Iraqis? Or, were they caught with weapons on them or in their homes or cars? Or, were they only under suspicion. Or, thouht to be spies? Who they are means quite different treatment according to the Geneva Conventions. Indeed, in almost all these cases, as the rebellion against the American occupation is being fought by those in civilian dress, those captured would not be considered prisoners of war...
