The Utopia of Maoist Communism

Sky News has obtained chilling new evidence of mobile execution buses being used by the Chinese government. It comes less than two years before China hosts the next Olympics - an event it was given after promising to improve its human rights record. China's penal system is surrounded by a wall of secrecy, but an investigation by Sky's China correspondent Dominic Waghorn found between 3,500 and 10,000 people are put to death each year. The volume of executions has meant China has invented new ways of killing, mobilising and mechanising its execution system. A brochure acquired by Sky News reveals details of China's new execution buses now operating across the country. Fitted with lethal injection equipment they can deliver on-the-spot executions. Amnesty International says the demand for transplant organs may be driving the high number of executions in China. Even by official figures more people are executed every year in China than the rest of the world put together.

Now, if this were confined to vicious murderers and rapists, I wouldn't be making this post. But people who openly disagree with the state (who wouldn't outside of cosy Western armchairs?) get routinely executed. China is the most prominent human rights violater outside of the Middle East.

What's worse, Islamism or Communism? You decide!

Communism is estimated to have under it's name the death of upto 100 million people.

...Communist regimes...turned mass crime into a full-blown system of government". Using unofficial estimates he cites a death toll which totals 94 million. The breakdown of the number of deaths given in the Black Book is as follows: 20 million in the Soviet Union, 65 million in the People's Republic of China, 1 million in Vietnam, 2 million in North Korea, 2 million in Cambodia, 1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe, 150,000 in Latin America, 1.7 million in Africa, 1.5 million in Afghanistan and 10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international communist movement and communist parties not in power"
