According to Professor R.J. Rummel (University of Hawaii), “democide” is the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder. Democide does not include soldiers killed in battle.
During the 20th Century (1900s) alone, Rummel calculates that government power was used to murder approximately 262,000,000 people, many of them children.
Governments, especially their intelligence agencies, in the 21st century are still causing tyranny and death on a mass scale.
Yet the dangers governments present to citizens around the world goes far beyond the military/war aspect. So often we find them in collusion with the pharmaceutical companies, food manufacturers and groups of other industries, pushing products and services to us which they know are harming or killing us (see What The Health documentary), all in the name of money.
The fact is, no government has our best interest as priority. Everyone needs to wake up and realize they shouldn’t depend on any government to provide reliable services for their them or their children. As a general cautionary word of advice: Trust your own instincts, not your government, especially as a parent.
