...how any of you would rank Chairman Mao, Josef Stalin, and Adolph Hitler in the 20th century triumvirate of, oh, let's just call it evil.
And why, please.
I'd say Mao, followed by Stalin, then that piker Hitler.
Mao by sheer numbers, also because he fostered an image of beneficience to disguise his utterly 'managed' slaughter and starvation of his own people.
Stalin is number two (barely) because he was slightly less murderous numerically (Mao-lite?), and also because he really didn't care if you saw him as "Father Russia" or not...less deceitful, if you will.
Hitler basically didn't have the patience or long-view to compete, but he had bigger numbers than Pol Pot, so.
