Six Times Worse

Today I stumbled upon the answer to a question I never thought to ask, but should have...

At Instapundit, Megan McArdle links to a blog post that links to someone's compilation of statistics for people killed by their own government during the 20th century.

This sentence jumped out at me:
Also, this democide murdered 6 times more people than died in combat in all the foreign and internal wars of the century.
We should be six times as alarmed and outraged by governments killing their own people than fighting wars against each other!
