    Your premise is that Socialism, Communism, Collectivism has been responsible for no deaths, and has only advanced the human condition.

    Ask some one from the former Soviet Union, It's satellites, Cambodia, Vietnam, Cuba. China. you know , all the folks with actual experience, not internet statistics. All the ones flooding into the West.

    You don't think the built the Berlin Wall to keep the West Germans out do you?

    Do you have nothing better to do than copy and paste this bullshit again and again and again? That's the Chimpanzee part of the brain at work and you are not winning anyone over.

    Here I have corrected your list to include only those items that actually had something to do with capitalism, but your figures are complete science fiction so it isn't like they are meaningful.

    Great Depression (America alone) 12,000,000

    Cigarette Related Deaths Worldwide (1960 - 2011) 306,000,000

    On the other hand,... number of lives improved by capitalism?

    South African Apartheid, World War One, World War Two, Feudal Russia etc.

    A only a few of the examples you gave that have nothing to do with capitalism.

    Apartheid was racism, they look differently and we don't like them, WWI was about imperialism, WWII was about revenge and Feudal Russia missed the train to enlightenment and with that capitalism.

    The difference between you bogus claim and the 150,000,000 people the Communists murdered in the twentieth-century? The people the Communists killed were REAL people. Get a life.

    Imagine where the world would be if they all had lived. I think the earth has to be replenished. I don't quite know why. It makes me cry out at night just thinking about it. And we don't seem to be better for it.

    Stalin was responsible for the death and suffering of millions of people in a short amount of time. You're one crazy lunatic like Stalin and Hitler combined.
