the decimation of Indians in the Americas back in the middle ages was pretty bad, It wasn't all intentional but still 25 million down to 1 million in a century is pretty bad.
I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
Yes, it's one of the largest exterminations of a people in history -- it's a damn shame that its 'thunder', if you will, is stolen by more recent atrocities.
Still, two of the ten men on the list (Hernan Cortes and Andrew Jackson) were perpetrators of the genocide of that same ethnic group, so I should think it's not under-represented.
I think people are hesitating to vote for Andrew Jackson, to be honest, just due to the fact that Americans hate admitting that they've committed genocides like the rest of us.
It really depends on how you count it. If you go by an absolute number, it's most likely Stalin. However, if you compare the number of people each of these people killed to the population of the earth at the time, I would argue that Genghis Khan would beat them all by far.
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Seriously spare me your apologetic west = bad, east = good BS, organized religion = bad, and Islam = even worse than Christianity.
Stalin in terms of numbers
but Hitler started a war that killed even more than Stalin
THe "Christian Kings" of Europe launched the crusades. The crusaders brought to europe the black plague
Shaka Zulu displaced a fourth of the sub saharan african population
I voted for Stalin though. His early support of Hitler sealed it for me combined with the millions he killed in the USSR
if you want to pick someone whose Ideas caused the most death its clearly Karl Marx but Jesus might be seen as a close second even though his teachings had nothing to do with the disgusting genocides carried out in His name
