The Worst Dictator in the World? Who is it?
    #1022767 - 11/05/02 12:54 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, lets just keep Bush out of this one. What dictator in the world do you all think is the worst? Remember how many countries have dictators before you just choose Saddam. I would say Sharon but he was elected. Hmm, this is a hard one. I'll be back.

I only know two leaders.

I think the question was about dictators, not leaders. You do not lead people by pointing guns at their heads (or relying on polls for that matter). But then, I think you know that already (again).

Watch it, Innvertigo! Don't profane the communist icon, he did what he had to do, he didn't like doing it. The problem was all those people who got in the way of creating the workers paradise were just too damn selfish - humans must be sacrifical animals to the collective if we are ever to save them. Happiness of the collective requires the crushing of the individual, there can be no collective freedom until every man is enslaved to the society. Think about it, it makes perfect sense if you're an idiot.

****Watch it, Innvertigo! Don't profane the communist icon, he did what he had to do, he didn't like doing it. ****

it's fun to tempt fate.  All libbies will deny liking stalin but at the same time spewing his garbage of a collective society where everyone thinks the same....how boring of a life would that be?

****the workers paradise were just too damn selfish ***

individual anything is considered egotistical, close-minded and just plain rediculous....oh and selfish (like they aren't)

****Happiness of the collective requires the crushing of the individual, ****

well put.  In order for them to be happy people like myself and others must not be able to have opinions...or atleast express them

****Think about it, it makes perfect sense if you're an idiot. ****

maybe that's why i don't get it. :grin:

Stalin the libby hero? what the fuck are you talking about? Stalin is nobody's hero. He killed well over 20 million people directly or indirectly through his policies. Lenin knew he was fucked in the head. He is far worse than Hitler in my opinion. I do however agree that he was one of the worst ever. But I should have clarified....ALIVE. My pick....hmmm Whoever is in charge in Sudan.

There's quite a few I'd rate worse than Lenin and Castro:

Pol Pot
Mao tse Tung
Idi Amin (and a seemingly endless list of other African despots)
"Papa" Doc Duvalier

Don't worry, it's just a practice quiz. The answers are in your history books.

That guy in Iraq has been in bed with Satan. I know, I saw it on South Park. (Ever notice the similarities if we change a couple of letters? SADAM -> SADAN ->SATAN)
