    the 20th century was easily the most bloody century in history. the vast majority of the genocides and mass murders were carried out by various socialist totalitarian regimes of one sort or another.

    the socialist death toll of the 20th century stands at roughly 150 million. main break down of the genocides:


    chinese socialists- 70 million.

    russian socialists- 60 million

    national socialists- 13 million

    korean socialists- 3 million

    cambodian socialists- 3 million

    other notorious socialist genocides took place in afghanistan, vietnam, ethiopia......

    I'd counter that religion is both a human ideology and the cause of far more suffering, pain and torture throughout history.

    Why should I apologise for atrocities committed by state capitalist autocrats who trampled over the proletariat under the guise of "socialism"?

    Socialism is half way to Communism, and Hitler hated communists many times more than he hated capitalists.

    I never understood this whole modern fad of making people apologise for things they had nothing to do with.

    I would never ask a Catholic to apologise for all the scientists/innocent women burned and killed in the Medieval times.
    Why should we ask any of today's socialists to apologise for the lunacies of nutcases from the last century, who committed crimes before they were probably even born.

    Plus, I think Stalin, Hitler, etc. would have massacred innocent millions regardless of which banner they did it under.

    Nazi's were Fascist, not socialist. Nazi economics was partially based on socialism (centralisation) but it's social policy and foreign policy certainly was not!
    Socialism believes in an equal society, mass genocide of one race doesn't exactly show that.
    Also, Nazi foreign policy shows a want for an alliance with Britain (read Mein Kampf) and a hatred for communism (which is far closer to 'socialism' that Britain's system ever was).

    Christ, Socialism is the opposite of what I believe but I feel I have to defend them here.

    Socialism is one of the widest ideological terms going. That's like saying "Why don't white people apologise for the holocaust". It's so stupid to think that any socialist should bare the responsibility of those acting under their name in the past.

    Not really. Fascism is an example of syncretic politics, made up of a rag bag and sometimes conflicting mix of political ideologies from all over the political spectrum. A more accurate statement regarding the left/right scale would be that nationalism in its purest form is the polar opposite to socialism. Fascism is falsely seen as a far-right ideology because of the widespread knowledge of its crimes committed on a basis of its nationalist goals.

    Edit: Care to explain the neg?
