I would be tempted to say the Black Death but given that without full knowledge I may be wrong I will say instead the TORY's hahaha.
Seriously it was probably the black death but remember these factors, population density helps spread disease, sanitation, other carriers such as
animal's (rats in the case of the black death probably) and how easy it was for the disease to jump between distant populations by trade and people
travelling between these places.
Today if we had the black death for the first time our airlines would carry it to every corner of the world, it's rate of infection, incubation and
spread would make the current crisis look tame by comparison, entire town's - maybe even some city's - were wiped out by it and vanished from the map
in the following generations.
Estimates of percentage are based on wild assumption but the best guess historian's can come up with is that in Europe alone the black death killed
between 30 to 60 percent of European's alive at the time.
On the criteria you are using I will have to agree with Phage though also capitalism has actually killed more people than communism (though over a
greater period of time and communism kill's more in less time so is definitely more lethal in those term's).
There are however - remember - several different strains of capitalism and communism.
Corporate government controlling and owning Capitalism is both the enemy of democracy (buy's and own's the politicians and voters are only sheep) and
of liberty (laws are made to favour the corporations and those that defend you the individual are eroded away).
Atheist Communism is a different kind of poison it takes everything from everyone even the people themselves are owned, human right's are waved in
favour of the good of the state which through the hidden mechanism of capitalism that still functions in it's own way under communism eventually
whittles itself down to the party and then ultimately the ruling council and it's divine emperor leader be that Stalin or Mao or whatever jumped up
crook sits on the imperial throne and lives like an emperor while his people toil and starve.
Both system are crooked and bad for your health, unless you are a council member or a corporate board member.
Democracy is destroyed by both systems and in both a puppet parody of democracy becomes the normal, the people lose all voice in the grand scheme and
are treated and manipulated as sheep.
What is the answer, socialism on the small scale work's, capitalism on the small scale work's so why not have both and democracy on the small scale
is a beautiful thing so why not have that as well, just don't let them ruin it on you by letting corporations or massive political party's take it
OR keep your capitalism Big, let your politician's be corrupt but add in better health care paid for by taxing the filthy rich for the poor workers,
cut workers tax burden, increase there wages (which will stimulate your retail sector as well) and put the taxation back were it belongs on the filthy
dirty thieving rich and corporations - and members of your senate and house of representatives non of them are poor are they and remember one man one
vote should mean what it say's on the tin, good education for ALL to ensure your nation returns to it's democratic root's, an educated populace to
choose wisely whom they want to represent them and what they want them to represent.
Not going to happen because if you are a tyrant even one in disguise in a fake democracy when you've got to keep them sheep under control so keep
them dumb, divided, unhappy, uneducated and working for not enough to live on so that you can sit back and laugh at them while they struggle because
you know, it keep's you and your pal's in charge and your fake argument's with one another are nothing compared to the real division in your society
that is literally killing it and your nation slowly but surely like a cancer, use the wrong treatment and it will come back, the right treatment is to
cure the source not the symptom but remember this is the nation of big pharma and curing the symptom not the cause is very big business.
