Stalin, the dictator of Soviet Russia, was a killer. He was said to have killed about 60 million, some not by his hand directly, but by his orders. Stalin was obsessed with his power and would eliminate all who would oppose this power. He would eliminate those who oppose him by either exiling them or executing them. He would even burn his own villages just to instill fear in the peasantries and to discourage criminals from stealing food shipments.
(Germany was going to be Russia’s enemy in World War I.) His other close advisor was “the Mad Monk,” a man named Rasputin. Rasputin was crazy and gave Nicholas terrible advice, but Nicholas kept listening!” (“Czar”). These immoral decisions lead to many mishaps within his leadership and potentially were the reason that the Russian Revolution started. Although many will argue that Lenin’s good leadership, that led to his exile, was the reason the Russian Revolution started, Nicholas II made so many crucial mistakes that outweigh the decisions of Lenin.
In the Holocaust, Hitler “…made it clear he will annihilate all Jews…” and that he would stop when every Jew was killed (Wiesel 80). This certain hatred toward the Jews prompted millions of lives to be lost with Hitler giving no consideration to newborns and children. His cold, dark heart had no room for sympathy or remorse, being that one of his twisted goals was to murder every Jew he could. Additionally, Vlad the Impaler got the nickname of “Dracula” for his bloodlust and cruel methods of dealing with people that did him wrong. Vlad was known to have his victims “disemboweled, beheaded and skinned or boiled alive” whenever he often saw fit.
Pol Pot, The Worst Person to Ever Walk the Earth When you think of the worst person to ever walk the Earth, you might think Adolf Hitler, or Genghis Khan; however I believe the worst person to ever walk this planet is Pol Pot. He killed many of his own kind because they knew how to read, or even wore glasses. Besides that, the Khmer Rouge, the organization Pol Pot was leader of, decreased half of the Vietnamese population during the Vietnam War. Right before his death he was still a nasty man. He had killed millions so he could go back to a simpler way of life.
Not only that but his features never changed at and everything bad that happened to him only effected the painting and not him. Essentially, the painting was him because his soul was now in that painting to only deteriorate away in his attic. There are many leaders who were brought in being corrupt, one being Joseph Stalin. Stalin was a paranoid ego maniac that thought everyone was out to get him. He took power through brute force and ruled his people by using terror and utter fear.

White supremacists feel that the Klan was the face of justice, and the way they perceive African Americans, minorities, and other groups give themselves sufficient reason to oppress them. The Adolf Hitler that most of the modern world knows -- the Adolf Hitler, who brainwashed the face of Germany and convinced it into nearly wiping out European Jews, putting millions upon millions of innocent men, women, and children through undescribable horror before leaving six million of them dead -- isn’t the same Adolf Hitler that Nazi Germans saw, or that Neo-Nazis see today (“Introduction to the Holocaust”). And while ISIS, the Taliban, Al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim terrorists can be viewed as heartless, death-loving demons especially to the American public and media for countless deaths and horrendous acts of terrorism, their existence relies on the fact that there are people that find their actions
Introduction Joseph Stalin is perhaps one of the most important and discussed people in Russian history. He was arguably a feared tyrant cursed and despised by many. At the same time, one finds sufficient evidence for the adoration and worship of Stalin that used to exist in the minds of the citizens of the Soviet Union. One reason for this worship was the existence of the so called ‘Cult of Personality’ where Stalin was celebrated as a wise leader, father of all people, and the architect of victory of the Second World War. In his book, The Stalin Cult: A Study in the Alchemy of Power, Jan Plamper states that Stalin’s cult of personality was largely a visual phenomenon.

After Odysseus returns and finds that suitors have stolen from him. He states ¨Not for the whole treasure of your fathers, all you enjoy, land, flocks, or any gold put up by others, would I hold my hand. There will be killing till the score is paid.¨(958) The suitors suffer death as their consequences. In history, this can be seen when Germany invaded Europe in World War Two, and at the end of the war as a consequence to Germany's aggression, parts of Germany were split up among the allies. So in the end, the Odyssey and history show that all actions have
Together, these Khrushchev used these four tools to his advantage and over time he slowly became the new leader of Russia that everyone cited with “de-Stalinization.” In his speeches, Nikita Khrushchev chastised Joseph Stalin and tried to belittle him as a person much as he possibly could. He made claims that Stalin was single-handedly responsible for taking Russia off of a safe course of development and putting it on one that did not yield the desired results. Taking things one step further, he also claimed that many of his opponents were at one point or another working with Stalin as he committed these “crimes” against the Russian people
The Cold war began because two sides had different views on communism. The Soviet Union wanted it to spread to other countries, while America wanted it to stop and have it disappear. Three main reasons why the war started was one, two sides of communism were being fought over, two, fear of one another, whether it is from being hurt or beaten, and finally, competition. Without any of these happening or being a part of the war, the Cold War would not have been the same. Without the Cold War, mistakes would not have been learned until much later, for the Cold War is a highly important event that happened.
