Top 10 Worst Dictators In History
« see full list
Joseph Stalin (USSR)
Stalin was the most monstrous and amoral leader in history. He waged war on his own party and people out of sheer paranoia - most of his people and political allies were ready to follow him wherever he directed, but he had to kill them anyway, and their entire families, children included, just in case they moved against him in future. Criminal psychopath - should definitely have been shot by someone long before he managed to seize power.
Because he killed way more people than hitler, plus people in nazi Germany loved hitler and wanted to win the war, while Stalin staved his people and killed them for anything they did that annoyed him. Plus he was hated by his own people. He even demanded deserters if the red army in ww2 to be shot if they retreated. He is the most vicious and evil leader ever.
Who killed the most people? Stalin did! Hitler sent Jews, Gypsies and other races he hated to camps to kill them, Stalin sent everyone he didn't like to camps, no matter what race or religion, if he didn't like them, they went on a vacation to Gulag camp in Siberia, where they worked and starved to death, rather than have a (sort of) quick death. Of Hitler, we know the deaths, of Mao, we do too, but Stalin has killed more than both of them together, or at least, for as far as we know, I mean: good luck finding an abandoned Gulag camp in Siberia and digging up the corpses to count them!
During the devastating event known as Terror Famine, Stalin order the persecution of 5-8 million innocent farmers who were not willing to give in there farms during Stalin's Five-Year Plan to unite small farms to create a large one. These Ukrainian farmers were known as Kulaks. Compared to the Holocaust which murdered an estimated 6 million Jews, Stalin seems as the worst dictator of all time.
He is way worse than Hitler. Hitler cared at least for his "own" people, this one didn't. Besides all the soldiers sent the death, the fake trials and executions of "enemies of the state", he got random people murdered for no reason, just to terrorize society.
All I can say is that Stalin killed his own people. Hitler was actually very patriotic and loved people. Stalin cared for nobody. If you didn't like his moustache ( not only Hitler had a moustache ), you were long gone. Stalin ruled by fear, Hitler ruled by trust and adoration.
He killed a LOT more people than Hitler did, and he killed them for disagreeing with him. Trust me when I say that I know an abomination when I see one. The only reason people like this monster better than they do Adolf Hitler is because he fought on our side in World War II.
11 million < 20 million
Stalin killed more people than Hitler did, yet somehow Hitler is on the top of the list instead of Stalin. Read some history, people.
Way worse than Hitler. Maybe because Stalin lived longer then him. Killed way more people than Hitler. He oppressed many more nations and peoples than Hitler ever dreamed of. StalinĀ's killing was not systematic extermination. It was more of a random and corrupt system which allowed the killing of countless innocents for no reason other than the "great" leaders insanity.
Joseph Stalin is the most evil man in history at lest Hitler believed wrongly that what he was doing was good. Stalin kill just for his own pleasure and prestige he believed that peoples lives mean nothing and that people are dispensable. Hitler kill Jews because he believed that they where truly inferior vermin who are responsible for the German's problems. TO STALIN THERE IS NO EQUAL!
Stalin always had a plan to invade germany and was waiting for the right time.. Fearing the worse germany invaded russia.. "THE MAN WHO WINS WRITES HISTORY" ADOLF HITLER IS REMEMBERED ALWAYS FOR THE KILLINGS...BRITISH HISTORIAN DAVID IRVING REVEALS THAT HITLER DID NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE HOLOCAUST CAMPS..HE HAS PROVED IT.. HITLER WAS A GREAT MAN AND A GREAT ARTIST WHO GAINED GERMANY HER SELF RESPECT AND BROUGHT ODER IN HIS COUNTRY.. WE NEVER KNOW THE REAL HISTORY because WE ALL ARE LIED.
Well, Stalin killed more than Hitler, Hitler only killed about 20 Million due to the fact of the Death Camps, and German Casualties in the War. Stalin killed about 30 Million due to The Great Soviet Famine which took about at least 8 Million Lives, Stalin's great Purge, WWII Soviet Casualties which took up with more than 20 Million.
Killed many more people than Adolph Hitler. The reason people don't know is because many of the atrocities he committed was hid behind the iron curtain of the Soviet Union.
Hitler may have killed many Jews but Stalin killed people JUST because they disagreed with him! He starved his people! He probably ordered his fellow opponent Leon Trotsky dead! Who could be worse than that! ANYONE WHO OPPOSED WERE MURDERED!
He killed way more people than Hitler and killed them just because he simply didn't like them all dictators are horrible but he is the worst and he was only put at second place because people have been taught more about Hitler than him
Stalin was definitely head and shoulders above the rest of this list as history's worst dictator. In all departments of cruelty and degradation he had or never will have an equal. This psychopathic tyrant averaged about a million dead for each of his 29 terrifying years in power.
"There are no Soviet prisoners of war: only Soviet traitors. " Stalin had no comrades.
Responsible for the death of more than 27.000.000 people, close to hitler, however, since everybody seems to be so convinced Hitler was worst, I have to try and even it out a bit. They were neck and neck concerning their evilness.
Hitler was a wimp. He had to select groups of people to execute, Premiere Stalin did not care. Stalin killed anything and anyone who opposed him mainly of his own people. The numbers Stalin killed continue to go up between 20-60 million.
Stalin had people just come in and kidnap people straight from their homes. Women were sent to Siberia and men were sent to prison; no one could've spoken about their experiences. The Kremlin made lists of people considered anti-Soviet, who were supposed to be killed. I suggest reading the book Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys or going to betweenshadesofgray.com for more information about the horrors that Stalin imposed upon people.
Stalin was a monster behind a shroud of secrecy and deceit, his atrocity against the Ukrainian people during the 1930's is enough to put him at the top of the list. They were devoted and obedient, the largest food producers in the USSR. The Holodomor or "Hunger-extermination", Stalin forcibly starved them killing nearly 1/3 of the population. Of the 23 million Ethnic Ukrainians reported in census in 1929 Stalin was estimated to have killed between 6 million and 11 million... Keep in mind, this was a time of PEACE!
Truly a Monster!
Killed more people than Hitler. And he was really the worst at being a dictator. HE SUCKED AT IT. and Adolf Hitler wasn't the worst he actually succeeded till America got involved. READ THE TITLE PPL.
Hitler kills 15 million Jews
Stalin kills 2x times more of his own people and 5x times more of other people honestly he did way more harm then Hitler ever did its all stories that make Hitler seem bad but Stalin is worse!
Actually, you're wrong. Specialists estimate that the death rate was anywhere between 11 and 17 million. And Stalin killed way more than "2x more." He killed 60 million of his own, not including those he murdered in the Ukraine during Holodomor (est. 10 million. ) Why isn't anyone talking about Holodomor? Seriously? And has anyone mentioned the Chinese Famine in China? 30 MILLION PEOPLE DIED.
People who were sent to the gulag wrote to Stalin saying that please free us and all these other good things, funny thing is Stalin sent them there in the first place
If just Josef Stalin was still alive a few more years during the cold war he would have started WW3 and for sure he would have used the hydrogen bombs to end capitalism in modern world.
