I wonder many times what people’s real motives are when they deny the holocaust. I do not see much on old Stalin's 20 million killed by his

You seem to admit that the actual number of those killed is entirely unknown. This is good, but it has no purpose in this thread; however:
It does havea strong purpose, and I will show that purpose so that you may understand my basis in this thread. The number is an issue. It is an issue
to be debated, and concentrated on. It is a number to be proven and disproven by those who are seeking the truth.
What truth? The number killed.
What signifigance is in that? Not much.
It does not matter if 1.1 million were killed, or if 6 million were killed. It is wrong to murder innocent people - this is what matters. The only
thing that matters is innocent people were killed - we must move on.
If it really mattered to us the number of people killed, we would all be quoting the "official" number of every single human being who has ever been
Yet, we don't.
It is a red herring. The numbers are of of no real signifigance. They only appeal to emotion and stand as a guage to how "atrocious" the event was,
and how "evil" the Nazi's were. All perceptions, of course.
We seek to blame. We don't want to blame ourselves. We don't want to blame the nature of the human mind so that we may correct ourselves.
No, the cowards among us wish to place blame and disavow the possibilties inherent within their own minds - they do not seek to indentify the problem,
to fix it. They are fearful of associating the possibilty of themselves having a Nazi mindset. They feel they are too strong. They feel that it could
never happen. They feel that their mind is protected from such "evil" acts.
No, they wish to blame a "seperate" group of people. Seperatte from them. People who are somehow monsters, people who are somehow evil.
This blame is what hides the truth.
Should we place the blame on who we perceive as evil, or do we blame who causally inplimented the atrocities of 1-6 million dead humans - all with
minds like our own - all with minds like the Nazis. All human. "Motive" and "desire" do not matter in this realm, only "action".
You say "official number".
Whos "official number" do you speak of? is it this side or that? is it the official number of this agenda, or that? is it the official number of
this country or that? Is it my official number or yours? Is it the German governments official number, or Israel's official number?
What is official here, on this planet Earth?
What "official" authority, do you - human - bow down to?
What "official" authority, do you let make decicions for you?
What "official" authority controls your mind?
