Proof capitalism is evil, and capitalist Imperialists saying "Communism killed 100 million people", when communism hasn't even existed yet, are f*cking hypocrites. And the real numbers are far higher.

The earliest form of modern capitalism was invented in what we call now Belgium, in the Duchies of Flanders and Brabant in the late Middle Ages-early Renaissance period.
The thing was so successful that many took it over and ameliorated the system, forgetful the many faults it had. The fact that no-one actually bothered to anticipate and adapt the system before such things happened.

Communism kill more... true evil: MaoZedong, Stalin,... who killed the most, not in cluding propaganda soldiers. Belive me Capitalism is better than every thing, it's an economic system of nearly the whole world, China get richer everyday because they changing to capitalism (not democracy). Everything in this world is become capitalisme, it's better than dictator, or communist goverment.Source(s): I learned a lot history.

You forgot ancient Rome, ancient Egypt, the Aztec kingdoms, Shaka Zulu, Ghengis Khan and every other player from history.
Capitalism is such a broad, vague term you can include 99% of world history under its umbrella.

There's still more, but that's just the tip of the iceberg on how horrible Capitalism is. Those who are for Capitalism and aren't rich are really against their best interests, unless they are masochists...

Maybe capitalism killed the dinosaurs too.
And made the Dodo Bird and Tasmanian Tiger extinct .
Hey, my pet fish died last month, maybe that was capitalism too. Don't worry Finny McSwim, I'll avenge your death. Those capitalists will pay.

To bad you don't have a clue what you are talking about. Very few of those events had anything to do with capitalism.Source(s): Ideology is the Chimpanzee part of the brain at work

You can't just randomly choose periods from history, add up the death tolls and proclaim that capitalism did it.
The Back death killed almost a quarter of Europe's population. Damn capitalism!

Серж your statistics are wild guesses. Many more people were brutally killed and tortured by Stalin and Mao.

Capitalism is a economic system and has killed no one.
