Progressive Economics Don't Work, Example #52,873

I was skimming across the Wikipedia article on Ethiopia (Naughty Nomad's a fan) and I discovered the following passage:
In the beginning of the 1980s, a series of famines hit Ethiopia that affected around 8 million people, resulting in 1 million dead. Insurrections against Communist rule sprang up, particularly in the northern regions of Tigray and Eritrea.
For future reference: "lefty" politics = millions killed and starved.  see: Ethiopia, North Korea, China, Soviet Union, Cambodia.....
