@astabada And? Where is equality between Marx and Lenin? Or for you, Nizsche should really answer for Hitler's crimes?

@astabada "The only practic crimes they did were these of Engels as usual capitalist of those days and Marx, when he sometimes published articles of Engels as own works" Where had I compared Lenin and Marx? Your text is a standard commi lie, nothing more.

bibliotekar.ru/istoriya/117.htm - 7 mln up to the end of the century, hist1.narod.ru/Science/Russia/Crisis.htm - 9 mln at the middle of the century. The last work names one more explanation - limit of the usable natural resources.

comment How many Russian people did Tsar Ivan IV (“the Terrible”) kill?
@spyder 1. I had not said that I believe in these numbers. I have said that these numbers are not contradictory. 2. Your numbers have a bit narrow span - I would say rather 5.5-9 mil. 3. Yes, most of specialists insist that the population of Russia during Ivan The Terrible years became about 1/5 smaller, simultaneously with huge increasing of the territory. They only can't decide what was the main reason of mass deaths - epidemies, killings and enslaving by Tartars, or killings by tsar. And this problem cannot be solved here.

comment Why did the USSR give Crimea to Ukraine?
@T.E.D. Absolutely true. I had very close friends in Ukraine in 86-91 years. They were members of the nationalistic movement in the western Ukraine - the centre of the Ukrainian nationalism. And having anti-SSSR views I said they should look for independence. And they argued, they didn't expected or even waited for any independence except some more cultural autonomy.

Novgorod was the nam not for the city only, but for the great area belonging to it. So, if the population of the city inside the city walls was only 40 th, there is no contradiction in these numbers. According to what I have read, he really killed majority of population there.

Veliki Novgorod (there is no vovgorod in Russia) and Novgorod without any title are two names of the same town. So, you have problems with your counting.

@JimThio You have said: "You can count on human selfishness". It is true, but not always and everywhere. For example, when some bishop from Rome visited Constantinople in VIth Cent, he was astonished how every even "low class " person is interested in the problems of religion instead of their own. The common problems were their own problems. Even if we take the later periods, times of Adam Smith, for example, don't forget that as these liberal economists say, that free market works only under hard control of morals. That's the real crime of communists - they annihilated the morals.

@JimThio No, it is correct only for the late stadiums of ethnic development. Very late ones. The ones before the death of the ethnicum.

@Anixx Here you have tried to raise simultaneously several questions. I think, that if you would ask them separately, it could be very interesting. Anyway, it is a pity, that the question was closed.
