Think about how you perceive as the most evil person of all time. Are they a political figure?
Political figures are the worst murderers in history
Yes, but also some of the best people I can think of are/were political figures.
Caligula probably went nuts after an illness which may have been meningitis but there are more evil people, like Pol Pot, who killed millions while sane.
A mental state not defined in DSM? 😁
Seriously, there is no easy answer but it would have to refer to your grasp of reality and ability to function in everyday life.
I️ think of Hitler
Political figure/real estate mogul
Donald Trump is literally the most evil person of all time? Surely you’re using hyperbole.
No, I truly mean it. Trump hasn’t committed mass human atrocities on the scale of others, but only because he hasn’t had the opportunity, yet.
So you think he wants to murder several million people?
Yes. He would murder anyone who stands in his way. In America, you can’t get away with that so he destroys people financially instead.
So destroying people financially is worse than murdering 6 million people with the sole intent to exterminate an entire race of people? Come on.
You’re not picking up what I’m putting down. Maybe someone else here will have the inclination to explain it to you.
Yeah because the guy saying Donald Trump is the worst human being ever to live is the logical one.
That's a massive accusation. Why do you believe this?
No offense, of course, but it seems you're setting up yourself and maybe even those you support. It looks kinda crazy. Unless he is exposed without a doubt that he does, in fact, want to exterminate a vast amount of innocent lives.
I’ve already explained my position. I’ve nothing more to add other than Trump is evil in its purest form.
To add on to ConservativeCA, Hitler didn’t just kill 6 million people. He killed 6 million JEWS. In total, he killed approximately 11 million innocent people. How can you believe that Donald Trump is more evil than him?
I believe that was under Reagan’s watch
Numerous names flooded my mind. Stalin, Hitler, Nero, Tiberius, Mao, Lenin, Marx, Himmler, Heydrich, Leopold II, Pol Pot, Vlad, Torquemada, Martin Luther, Saddam, Genghis Khan.....hard to pick the worst. I guess Hitler but it’s my personal bias that leads me to say that.
Evil human being. Read his works “The Jew’s and their Lies”. Hitler used this during the Holocaust. Vile loathsome man.
Well, this past week we celebrated him.
Add Dr Mengele, Himmler and Irma Grese, "the beast of Auschwitz.
I do NOT agree on Tiberius.
Historians Tacitus and Suetonius were anti monarchy and likely painted him too harshly.
Tiberius likely was a loner, a borderline alcoholic and strict but not cruel until, after retreating to his villa on Capri (which I visited), he discovered a conspiracy amongst the praetorian guard and started a "cleansing".
What did Lenin do wrong? He overthrew a feudalist monarchy, and it seems like he didn't rule long enough to do anything that would upset you *that* much. He even enacted the NEP, which I would have expected you to support.
Two words “Tiberius’s Leap”.
The man was a sadistic psychopath
"Local legend", don't believe all rumors.
Tiberius lived to age 79 while true psychopath Caligula didn't. Had Tiberius been a psycho, he would have been assassinated.
Have you been to Capri? Not exactly an easy journey.
It was guarded very well.
Yes I visited Tiberius villa.
Yes, which makes sense as that’s the industry most attractive to evil people.
I thought about Nero and Caligula but imo they weren't evil but clinically insane.
So between Stalin, Hitler and Mao I chose Mao, probably with the highest death toll and likely completely sane.
More than Hitler?
Caused all the deaths from communism. Suffering of hundreds of millions more. Still causing unrest.
I'm not arguing that didn't happen (and still does). But evilness, I believe, is measured by intention and not results.
Anyone with the capability of being 'evil' is political, whether they have held office or not
What good will being evil do you if you don’t have any power? The best you could ever hope to do is carry a gun to a public place and try to pick off as many people as you can before you’re done forever.
