David Deutsch Defends Stalin, Mao

David Deutsch tweeted:

[email protected] To end extreme poverty, end extreme wealth? A misconception that killed more people in the 20th century than malevolent violence.

This tweet categorizes Stalin and Mao as not being in the malevolent violence category. It has to for the body count math to come out right. Rather, Deutsch believes they had a "misconception" about income equality and the root causes of poverty.

It's disturbing that in Deutsch's mind he doesn't associate mass-murderers like Stalin and Mao with malevolence and violence. Soviet and Chinese gulags, and starving millions to death, weren't policies for dealing with "extreme wealth".

Those millions of victims of communism didn't die by accident. They didn't die despite good intentions. They died due to authoritarian violence! They died malevolently!

You read a lot into this tweet.

It's not even obvious he meant Stalin and Mao.


You should listen to happy music more.

If you have some different body count math, why don't you post it with some rough numbers?

That music doesn't seem very happy to me.

Perhaps you misinterpreted. There are many other people in the world who are shitlibs with lots of power explicitly in favor of evil if you got this kinda energy to devote to challenging shit ideas. You really think DD doesn't know about the evil of Mao? Why u so focussed on bad mouthing one of the good guys? Seems like useless and harmful friendly fire.

I think you should explain what your problem with DD is in detail not just write these posts which allude to things but never say anything explicitly.

People would find it very interesting to read that.
