    In the live session last Wednesday, a questioner asked about the accuracy of professor RJ Rummel’s estimates of the number of deaths attributable to coercion by government.

    Tom replied that the figures professor Rummel provides may not be accurate.

    For what it’s worth, Professor Rummel is cited frequently in “The Freeman” – Search results:

    From what I can tell, professor Rummel goes to great lengths to obtain the most accurate figures possible given the circumstances.

    If I should doubt Rummel’s accuracy or veracity, I would like to have a better understanding of why.

    I would also like to know what sources for the same information would be considered accurate.

    Many thanks,

    Thank you, Tom.
