The chart is distorted in another way, one might argue. The chart presents absolute numbers of acts of violence by state. However, the states differ largely in terms of their number of inhabitants. North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW, top of the list) has roughly five times as many citizens as Berlin but about the same number of acts of political violence. Sachsen-Anhalt even has only 1/8 the population of NRW. Taking that into account Sachsen-Anhalt has more than 3 times the number of acts of violence as NRW.
I agree that it is stupid to criticize Taylor per se. He made an outstandingly important contribution to what we call management. He needs to be seen in his time and in the context of industrialization. I also agree with Bill's comment that Taylor's assumption of a knowledgable manager taking care of a not so farseeing worker does simply not apply to modern knowledge workers. And if you have the best intentions but, bottom line, create a monster you need to accept some responsibility, be your name Frankenstein, Royce or Taylor.
