10 Greatest Killers of Man

Since time began, the single greatest act one can witness is the miracle of life. It occurs at every moment of every day. This admiration of life leads us to the fear and devastation that accompany the ending of said life. Throughout history, death has used many vessels to carry out its mission to end that life. Below you will find 10 couriers of death’s deed. Some of them are natural, brought forth by the forces of nature itself; some are terrible, due to the atrociousness of evil men, and some are the result of omission, the lack of prevention.

simo_hayha-s585x360-11707-tm.jpg

Although many different cultures have legends that tell of men slaying thousands by their own hand, Simo Hayha is one of the deadliest soldiers of modern war. Nicknamed “White Death,” he can be found on various top ten lists, and for good reason. Often considered the greatest sniper to have served in war, Hayha is credited with over 800 kills. During the Winter War between Finland and the Soviet Union, Simo Hayha amassed 505 confirmed sniper kills (37 more unconfirmed) as well as over 200 confirmed kills by submachine gun. Even though his numbers are paltry compared to the rest of this list, he definitely earned the right to be recognized as one of the world’s deadliest soldiers. Here is a quote by Simo Hayha when asked if he regretted killing so many people: “I did what I was told to as well as I could.”

smallpox_396x222.jpg

The earliest form of this disease was probably found on the mummy of an Egyptian who died in 1157 BC. During the 20th century alone, it is estimated that Smallpox killed somewhere between 300 and 500 million people. With its mortality rate of 30-35%, and considering the ease with which smallpox is transmitted, pondering the historical impact of this disease is difficult. I was reluctant to include smallpox because it is practically extinct, but there is no denying it was one of the greatest killers nature brought upon Man, and therefore rightfully earns its place on this list.

lopez5.jpg

Called “the Monster of the Andes,” he was born to a 13 year old prostitute mother, in 1948. Lopez was picked up by a pedophile while still young, and was repeatedly raped before he was taken away by an American family and enrolled in a school for orphans. After being sodomized by a teacher, he ran away and found himself in prison at 18. There, Lopez was gang-raped and allegedly killed three of the rapists while still incarcerated. After his jail sentence was complete, his killing spree began. He claimed that by 1978 he had killed more than 100 young girls, and later he confessed to more than 300 murders. He eventually wound up in a psychiatric wing of a Bogota hospital in 1994, and since his release in 1998 has not been seen or heard from. It is not known if he is alive or dead.

20070828BizReligion_dm_500.jpg

The hardest part about including religion on this list is how to label it. “Idea” seemed to best generalize the concept of what religion is, so I went with that. In most discussions of the topics on this list, many would agree that religion has caused more deaths in history than anything else. All of the entries on this list, as well as the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East: all are based on a religion, either manmade or reputed to be “of god.” The brutality of religion is well-documented and is apparent in all aspects of man’s existence. Even terrorism is often justified by its perpetrators “in the name of God”, or one of many variations. Whether one believes in that god or just uses the idea of that deity as a means to an end, there is no denying the billions of deaths that have been caused, either directly or indirectly, by religion.

Lindbergh-Aerial-(4)-Wxl.jpg

I considered selecting the Great Chinese Famine of 1958-1961 for this entry, because it killed between 15 million and 43 million people over the span of three years; however, I realized I wanted to include a single act of nature’s wrath. Various factors combined to cause the 1931 China floods, which killed anywhere from 1 million to 4 million people. The flood destroyed an estimated 80 million homes and ravaged agriculture along the Yellow, Yangtze and Huai rivers. The Three Gorges Dam project was implemented to help avoid this type of flooding; however, due to Soviet conflicts, the project was suspended until 1980, and finally completed in 2009.

smoking-1.jpg

Listed as the second-greatest cause of death worldwide, smoking results in 10 percent of deaths around the globe, according to the World Health Organization. This adds up to roughly 5 million people annually. I don’t judge anyone who smokes; I personally wouldn’t do it, but to each their own. The WHO projects that 50% of smokers die from the habit. With 650 million smokers worldwide, that number alone portrays the global effects this habit will have on mankind. Of course, the most frustrating part is that smoking deaths are completely preventable. I know it’s easy for a non-smoker to say “don’t do it,” but there are methods in place to help one to quit, and maybe governments could become more involved by doing more than just taxing it, but that’s another discussion altogether.

mosquito.jpg

Although the mosquito, itself, is merely a carrier, it is certainly a harbinger of death. Known to be a common vector of over 15 diseases, mosquitoes are capable of spreading many blood-borne illnesses of parasitic nature. The worst of the diseases, and the one with the largest impact on man, is malaria. Malaria is responsible for one million deaths each year, and is among the leading causes of premature death in the world, second only to HIV/AIDS in Africa. The mosquito proves to be an effective transmitter due to its reproductive process. To make its eggs, it breaks down an enzyme found in the blood of animals and humans into amino acids. I would like to add that HIV has been found to be impossible to spread by mosquitoes. If this were to somehow change, then the world just might face its apocalypse.

you.jpg

The mosquito earns its right as the deadliest non-rational animal, but the species known as Homo sapiens has easily caused the most deaths in history. Some may say it is religion, but I choose to say “man,” because regardless of the means one uses to bring death, it is all done by man’s hand, whether by war, religion, murder, etc. To go through the countless wars throughout history and to try to attain a cumulative total of deaths caused by war alone would take days, weeks or even months. Outside of war, murder and other direct causes of death, we are our own worst enemy. With the ability to annihilate the earth with “the press of a button,” man’s potential to end the lives of 6 billion people earns us the title as one of the deadliest vessels death uses to carry out its mission.

46265-2008_russians_vote_stalin_face_nation.jpg

I could have chosen Hitler from popular opinion, or Jesus, due to religion’s impact on history, but to do so would not have done Joseph Stalin justice. Although it will never be known how many deaths were caused by Stalin’s regime, estimates range from 15 million people to as many as 60 million. He became leader of the Soviet Union in 1924, following Vladimir Lenin’s death. Stalin’s body of work as Deadliest Man includes 7.5 million people from ethnic minorities being deported (25% death rate); the mass deaths of civilians located in territories occupied by the Nazis (approximately 20 million); the Soviet Famine of 1932-33 (a result of rapid industrialization); and millions of executions and gulags. One could even credit him with deaths due to the blatant disregard for his conscripts’ lives, as they were carelessly and forcibly tossed into battle, since Soviet military casualties reached approximately 35 million soldiers in WWII.

time.jpg

The path one’s life will take is a mystery. The mark on history that one will leave is unknown. Life has many twists and turns, ups and downs, starts and stops; but regardless of the path a man’s individual journey has taken, death will always be there at the end. You can ask how, or who, or why, or when, but the only constant across all of the human lives who have come and gone is that time will always lead you to that death. It may be caused by the subjects of this list, it may not; but time will always lead you to the end of your life. Death can be hastened or delayed, but cannot be avoided. Time is the single constant found in this list, the vessel which death has summoned to carry out its purpose. Regardless of how or why one lives one’s life, at some moment in time, we will all find death.

DC Entertainment

Last October DC launched Death of the Family, lauding it as the most terrifying cross-over event in contemporary comics. And its been living up to the hype.

Brainchild of Scott Snyder, the story is of Joker’s grand revenge on Batman by targeting his friends and family including by not limited to Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Robin, Red Hood, and Alfred. Spread across half a dozen comic book series over several months. Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime will bring his year long plan to fruition in Batman #17.

As all the plot threads from various comic books are brought back together, DC promises an unforgettable conclusion that “will change the Bat-family forever.”

Snyder hinted at the psychological game Joker is playing with Bruce:

Joker is coming at Batman from a place of very personal terror for me. And a place of personal guilt, and also a place of great personal anxiety. So I think he is coming after Bruce in a way that is getting at a very, very personal story for Bruce. Because as much as Bruce loves the Family, you could make the accusation that in some ways he wishes he could stop worrying about them. Does that me he wishes they didn’t exist? Of course not. Does that mean he doesn’t love them? No, of course not. But that’s the way the Joker interprets it. The Joker says, ‘You’ve become slow and weak, and you’ve become nothing of the Batman I used to know. So deep down I know you’re unhappy. And I’ve heard you think this almost (not in a supernatural way, but just in a kind of figurative way),’ So he says, ‘Let me grant you your wish, because I’m here to serve you. And we’ll have so much fun afterwards.’

DC released two never before seen pieces of interior art from Batman #17. They’re so hot off the press, they haven’t even been colored yet.

Although George Orwell was a little premature in predicting a total surveillance state in 1984, based on some of today’s technology, he wasn’t too far off the mark. In earlier lists we’ve mentioned a few paranoia-inducing inventions, such as Google Glass, facial recognition software, and brain scanners. If those things didn’t motivate you to don a tinfoil hat, here are 10 more scientific developments to give you the heebie-jeebies. With tools capable of tracking our every movement, reading our minds, and meddling with our brains, Big Brother now has power that Orwell’s Thought Police only dreamed of.

10 Implantable Memories

White mouse

After the disclosures from government whistleblowers such as Manning and Snowden, most of us realize anything we say, do, or look at online is subject to monitoring by a third party. Combine that fact with camera drones, facial recognition software, and in-house spies (game consoles and TVs), and it appears the only truly private place left in the world is our brains. But is it really? It seems not, since even going off the grid or taking a vow of silence can’t protect our brains from being hijacked by implantable memories. Yes, thanks to the work of MIT scientists, you soon might not know whether your thoughts are truly your own or were artificially implanted.

The scientists have already successfully inserted false memories into mice by using optogenetics to turn individual brain cells “on and off.” Essentially, light is fed into the hippocampus, where it triggers specific cells known to relate to particular thoughts. The researchers can then tweak those memories to make the mouse believe something happened when it didn’t. For instance, they can cause a mouse to think a room is dangerous even though the rodent has never had a negative experience in the room.

While toying with the memories of mice is one thing, what happens when the technology inevitably expands to humans? Could someone make you believe you committed a crime when you hadn’t? What about education—one day, will everyone be implanted with the same, homogenous knowledge and belief systems?

9Power To See Through Walls

X-ray vision

Apparently the scientists at MIT have a fascination with Orwellian technology, because in addition to figuring out how to manipulate memories, they’ve also designed a way to “see” through walls.

The technology, nicknamed “Wi-Vi,” interacts with the radio waves of Wi-Fi signals to detect movement on the other side of a wall. Similar to sonar or radar, it works by sending out wireless signals and using the ping, or bounce-back, to get an impression of the non-visible. To differentiate between stationary objects and humans, the Wi-Vi sends out two signals that cancel each other out unless they hit a moving target. Thus inanimate objects such as furniture are ignored while human movements are easily tracked on the Wi-Vi monitor.

Currently, Wi-Vi only shows moving blobs, not silhouettes or other details, but it can still give someone a glimpse of what’s happening behind closed doors. The technology is relatively inexpensive and the Wi-Vi team hopes one day to see their product in smartphones, where it could be used for home security and baby monitoring. On the flip side, we can easily envision it as every stalker’s favorite new toy.

8 Filter Bubbles

Computer

On first consideration, filter bubbles seem benign, if not downright helpful. Google and other search engines use them to filter search results based on your past internet activity. In other words, you and a buddy can perform a search using the exact same terms and get entirely different results. The search listings you are given are based on what Google thinks you will like.

So, what’s the problem? Well, instead of giving you the most relevant results, search engines put you in “information bubbles” that feed you content you tend to agree with. This can lead to people getting news only from like-minded sources and entirely missing competing arguments.

Consequently, the Internet—which is supposed to be the world’s largest source of information—becomes incredibly limiting. Those who aren’t careful can wind up filtering out all important issues and existing strictly in a world of content “junk food,” consisting entirely of celebrity baby news and porn. Of course, Big Brother is happy to oblige, since the unaware usually don’t make waves.

7 Televisions That Watch You

TV eye

Earlier this year, Chinese manufacturer TCL introduced an HDTV that uses voice and video recognition to detect who is watching. The technology uses the Google TV platform and is intended to offer customized programming and advertisements based on the viewer. Other companies are producing similar TVs, which connect to your whole home network and can, for example, suggest products or ads on your computer related to what you’re watching on TV.

As if that weren’t enough of an intrusion, some camera-enabled TVs are even capable of peering into your home and monitoring your habits and facial reactions to what’s on the screen. So much for slumping over a bowl of ice cream while watching TV in your underwear.

Fearing the implications these televisions could have on a person’s privacy, Massachusett’s Representative Michael Capuano submitted the “We Are Watching You” bill, which requires companies to get permission from a consumer before their TV, DVR, or cable box can collect information. If passed, it will also force companies to post the message “We are watching you” any time information is being gathered.

It seems as though today’s world has two Big Brothers—the government and big business.

6 Internet Scrubbing

Soapy hands

While filter bubbles can serve as a passive method to keep people uninformed, or at least isolated from alternative thinkers, internet scrubbing is a blatant way to suppress the free distribution of information. If you think there’s no way to hold back the massive tide of content on the internet, just take a look at what’s happening in China, where internet scrubbing is big business.

Since around 2007, “Internet crisis public relations companies” in China have been removing negative or controversial articles about their clients from the net. The services aren’t cheap—blocking a search term can cost $160,000—but desperate companies and public figures are willing to pay the price to maintain their reputations and keep the truth away from citizens. Law enforcement is trying to crack down on such services, which is somewhat ironic considering that the Chinese government also tampers with the Internet. For instance, nothing online reaches the Chinese people without first going through the country’s “Great Firewall.”

Although such extreme censorship is not seen in other places around the world, some believe it’s only a matter of time before it spreads, calling China a kind of Orwellian testing ground where autocrats can see what does and doesn’t work.

5 Hackable Cars

Rearview mirror

What’s scarier than being in a constantly followed car? Having a vehicle that will violently turn on you without notice. No, we’re not talking about that weird episode of Knight Rider when we met KITT’s evil twin, KARR. We’re referring to all the modern vehicles on the road with built-in software.

According to a recent report, today’s “connected” cars have software fixed into all onboard systems, such as brakes, powertrain, and throttle. Many also have built-in navigation systems and smartphone integration. While these features offer convenience and the promise of added safety, what they really do is make a car susceptible to theft, spying, and cyber attacks while they’re being driven. Essentially, someone with the right skills and resources can hack into a car and take over the controls.

While many fear the power this puts in the hands of terrorists and hackers, conspiracists claim government intelligent agencies are already using these tools for evil, and most recently assassinated journalist Michael Hastings by causing his Mercedes to crash into a tree.

4 License Plate Scanners

If you drive an automobile, there’s a pretty good chance there’s a file somewhere filled with photos of your car along with its location on the day each picture was taken. Thanks to lowered costs, local and state police departments everywhere are adopting license plate scanners and accumulating millions of digital records of vehicles and plates. These scanners are mounted all over the place, including on police cars, buildings, bridges, and traffic lights. They indiscriminately capture the image of every automobile that passes by and send the information to a police database.

While the purpose of the scanners is to deter serious crimes such as drug trafficking and child abduction, so far the most common crime people are being busted for is driving on revoked or suspended registrations. In the US, the Supreme Court made it illegal for police to use GPS to track an individual without first getting a judge’s approval, but there is no such restriction on using a network of scanners to follow a person’s movements.

With the eyes of the scanners always on, as one reporter put it, “You can drive, but you can’t hide.”

3 Kinect

Surveillance

Not to be outdone by the privacy-infringing smart TVs, Microsoft has its own Orwellian device—the Kinect. The Kinect has been the silent observer in many people’s living rooms for several years, and with the release of Xbox One this fall, its creepy factor is going up. That’s because the new Kinect is required to always be on. There’s no unplugging it or throwing a towel over it when you’re feeling a little shy, as the Kinect must stay at the ready for voice or hand commands even when the Xbox is off.

So, if a lot of your entertainment revolves around the Xbox, be prepared to have your actions, voice, and heart rate constantly recorded. Microsoft says they don’t transmit data back to their servers without user consent, and they swear they’ll never divulge your information to the NSA. However, Skype—now owned by Microsoft—promised the same thing, and we all saw how that turned out.

2 Brain-Fingerprinting

Fingerprint

In a form of brain-scanning, forensic scientists have discovered how to use electroencephalography (EEG) to discover what information you’re hiding in your brain. It works by presenting you with images or words and measuring your electrical brainwaves. Currently it can perceive whether you have knowledge about something as well as pick up on your emotional state.

In 2008, an Israel-based security company announced plans to fine-tune the technology for airport security by integrating it with infra-red devices, flashing subliminal messages, and remote sensors. The idea is that instead of having to search your luggage or shoes, they can simply analyze your brain to gauge your intent. In other words, if you appear stressed or are reacting to subliminal images of bombs, you’re probably not going for a plane ride.

If that idea seems like a stretch, consider the fact that brain-fingerprinting is admissible in court and has already been used to challenge the murder conviction of Terry Harrington. In fact, brain-fingerprinting has huge potential as a law-enforcement tool, as it can be used tell whether or not a person remembers an event. With a less than 1 percent error rate, it’s a shoo-in to replace traditional lie detector machines. However, when we consider that memories are now controllable, brain-fingerprinting might not be as foolproof as originally thought.

1 Implantable Body Sensors

Microchip

Scientists in both the US and Britain are developing implantable biochips with the ability to monitor your vital signs and behaviors and wirelessly transmit the data to medical staff. These biochips are implanted in the body and can detect fluctuations in blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and heart rate. They also notice changes in behavior that could indicate a health issue, such as a difference in posture or whether you have taken prescribed medication.

VeriChip—now branded as PositiveID—paved the way for such technology with its implantable identity chips, which electronically linked people with their medical records. VeriChip earned United States FDA approval back in 2004 and was the first to market a biochip to the public, but in 2010 the product was discontinued because of poor sales. Not surprisingly, people weren’t too keen on having a scannable microchip capable of divulging personal information embedded in their skin.

Still, the newest biochips being created have a better chance of success, as they are targeted specifically at people in dangerous professions such as the military, and those with serious medical conditions. Such individuals are more likely to accept a loss of privacy for the reassurance that comes with constant medical supervision.

The Orwellian fear about these chips is that, were they to become mainstream, it could be a slippery slope leading to employers or insurance agencies requiring us to get a biochip so they could oversee our health and lifestyle habits. Thus, like everything in this list, biochips are a double-edged sword—they have the potential to do so much good, yet could easily be manipulated to work against us.
