Why did you remove the link in your original post Curt? (Was is not your source of the number of deaths?)
I was curious about your changed number -
I gave up explaining myself, because I was too mixed up in my feelings.
At first I gave the UN link which said 20 millions by year 1992
(after WW2). But then I wondered about the following 23 years... and found this page saying "more than 50 mio", by year 2000
- so I thought, "more than 50 mio" by year 2015
cannot be exaggerated.
I also got upset because...:
The writer made us imagine that only rich countries are killing MANY people, poor countries can only kill a few. However, these poor countries seemingly managed to be inefficient, and yet kill off more than fifty million people! And we didn't even have a fraction of a world war!!
Then I read that these video people wants to make a lot more videos of the same kind.... and I realized that they are not
in it for peace & love, but because they are impressed with themselves,
and just like fools such as Bob Geldof, Richard Dawkins or Lance Armstrong, just to name a few, they think that surely they must be teachers to the masses. Oh hail, Messiah II
But all that was far too much to talk about, so I clicked delete
PS! Thank you for the ourworldindata -link. At first I found it difficult to trust, because their total killed-in-war number for year 2007 is 21.189, but that is a smaller number than were killed merely by terror attacks: 22.719 ! Please don't argue that terror is not war. Other than that, the site seems okay.http://www.statista....t-attacks-worldwide/
