Has there ever been anywhere at any point in history a law criminalizing certain thoughts? I mean a law that says that the thinking of certain thoughts is illegal. I don't mean a law that says that the expression of certain thoughts is illegal. I don't mean a law that criminalizes certain actions accompanied by certain thoughts. I mean a law that says that the very thinking of certain thoughts is illegal.
The closest I can find is The Treason Act 1351, which is still in force in Britain today. This criminalizes compassing or imagining the death of the King. The statute goes on, however, to say that it is necessary that the offender be 'attainted of open Deed', so this is not a pure thought crime.
Are there any other "national" laws elsewhere in the world similar to the above British law? I am not counting the laws of religious bodies, just the laws of states.
In many jurisdictions, the state of mind of the perpetrator may affect the punishment for a crime, or even if an act constitutes a crime. The old Latin term is mens rea.
Killing in self-defense is a good example. It is no crime if the perpetrator acted in the genuine belief that he or she was under attack, but it is a crime if the perpetrator did not think so. Of course the court cannot read minds, so it will look at "reasonable man" standards or other evidence to discern the state of mind. Still, the intent is to punish actions for the wrong motives.
Review: ‘Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop’ on HBO
That head-spinning statement — and let’s note again that it’s the defendant’s mother saying it — sums up “Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop,” a documentary set for Monday night on HBO that is a trip down the rabbit hole if ever there was one.
It revisits a notorious case that is still evolving, the one in which a New York City police officer named Gilberto Valle was accused of planning to kidnap women, then cook and eat them. What makes the case doubly bizarre is that at the heart of the preposterous-sounding charges are serious and sobering issues: Is it illegal to think vile thoughts and chat about them on the Internet? Where is the line between sadistic fantasizing and imminent crime?
The film’s director, Erin Lee Carr, gains the confidence of Mr. Valle, who gives his side of the case that began when his wife found startlingly gruesome chats on his computer. Mr. Valle’s mother, Elizabeth Valle, also opens up, as does his father, Gilberto Sr., though to a lesser extent. These interviews enhance the arguments familiar from Mr. Valle’s trial — that his chats on a fetishist website were only fantasy, that arresting people on the basis of such things is a foray into a thought-police state.
The film, though, is no knee-jerk defense of Mr. Valle’s right to talk about trussing up women like livestock and making centerpieces out of their heads. Ms. Carr (whose father was David Carr, the media columnist for The New York Times, who died in February) sprinkles the film with excerpts from Mr. Valle’s chats, which are appalling even if they are merely fantasies. She also gives voice to all sides in the debate over the implications of the case, not just the free-speech one.
Join Times theater reporter Michael Paulson in conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda, catch a performance from Shakespeare in the Park and more as we explore signs of hope in a changed city. For a year, the “Offstage” series has followed theater through a shutdown. Now we’re looking at its rebound.
“The idea that everything that happens on the Internet is fantasy and it’s not really real is dangerous,” says Laurie Penny, a journalist who writes for The Guardian. “It’s just another way of not wanting to confront the fact that these evil thoughts and behaviors exist within human beings. It’s not a product of technology or possession by the devil or any kind of outside force. It comes from us. The darkness comes from us.”
In 2013 a jury convicted Mr. Valle of conspiracy to kidnap, but a judge later overturned that conviction. Mr. Valle hoped that might be the end of the case, but Ms. Carr follows him as he gets word that prosecutors decided to appeal. That appeal is pending.
The case, of course, has been irresistible to certain elements of the New York news media, spawning garish, pun-filled headlines. Ms. Carr isn’t immune to the cheekiness. For instance, James A. Cohen, a Fordham Law School professor, is discussing the tension between allowing freedom of thought and preventing crime.
“How are you going to feel if you let him off and he goes out and eats somebody?” he says. And Ms. Carr cuts immediately to a shot of Mr. Valle stirring a simmering pot of something goulashy-looking.
But the cheap shots are few and far between for the most part, this absorbing film stays focused on the substantive issues raised by the lurid case. A bit more discussion of the broader implications would have been welcome. How do the arguments supporting Mr. Valle’s right to fantasize apply if the discussion is about, say, abhorrent images of children, or about terrorism?
Plenty more will no doubt be said on these and related subjects as the age of the Internet and electronic eavesdropping progresses. Consider “Thought Crimes” a primer for the century ahead.
Hacking through the years: a brief history of cyber crime
Cyber crime is often thought of as a type of modern warfare, but hacking practices have been around longer than you might expect.
Early telephone calls
In the early days of telephone calls operators were required to connect customers though switchboards. The first operators were teenage boys, the logical choice as they had operated the telegraph systems that came before. In practice they proved a bit too unruly and were more interested in getting to know how the system worked and playing practical jokes than in making proper connections. In 1878, two years after the telephone had been invented by Alexander Graham Bell, the Bell Telephone Company was forced to kick a group of teenage boys off the telephone system in New York for repeatedly and intentionally misdirecting and disconnecting customer calls. From then on the company chose to only employ female operatives.
The discovery of electromagnetic waves in the late 19th century paved the way for Guglielmo Marconi’s wireless telegraph and so the first true feat of hacking. In 1903, magician, inventor and wireless technology enthusiast Nevil Maskelyne disrupted John Ambrose Fleming’s first public demonstration of Marconi’s ‘secure’ wireless telegraphy technology by sending insulting Morse code messages discrediting the invention. In a letter to the Times newspaper, Fleming asked readers for help to unmask the scoundrel responsible for such ‘scientific vandalism’. Interestingly, Maskelyne himself replied, claiming that his intention had been to unmask Marconi and reveal the vulnerability of his invention.
During the Second World War, huge military operations were dedicated to breaking the codes and ciphers used by the Axis Powers to transmit top-secret information, many of which were carried out at Bletchley Park in the UK. In 1939, in the best-known case of military codebreaking, Alan Turing, Gordon Welchman and Harold Keen developed the Bombe, an electromechanical device capable of deciphering German Enigma-machine-encrypted secret messages. Another codebreaking mission at Bletchley involved breaking the Lorenz cipher, which was used by the Germans to transmit high-level military intelligence. The codebreakers developed Colossus, the world’s first programmable electronic computer, which used thermionic valves to perform boolean and counting operations.
The rise of the phone phreaks
Phone hackers, aka ‘phone phreaks’, first emerged in the US in the late 1950s and would listen to tones emitted by phones to figure out how calls were routed. The unlikely father of phreaking, Joe Engressia, aka Joybubbles, was a blind seven-year-old boy with perfect pitch. In 1957 Engressia heard a high-pitched tone on a phone line and began whistling along to it at a frequency of 2600Hz – exactly that needed to communicate with phone lines. Other phreakers included John Draper, known as ‘Captain Crunch’ for his use of a whistle found in a box of Cap’n Crunch cereal, and Apple founders Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, who in 1975 began building ‘blue boxes’, electronic devices that communicated with phone lines.
Remembered as one of the most notorious hackers in internet history, Kevin Mitnick started out with a humble interest in ham radio and computing. From the 1970s until 1995 Mitnick penetrated some of the most highly-guarded networks in the world, including those of Motorola and Nokia. Mitnick used elaborate social engineering schemes, tricking insiders into handing over codes and passwords and using the codes to access internal computer systems. He was driven by a desire to learn how such systems worked, but became the most-wanted cyber-criminal of the time. Mitnick was jailed twice, in 1988 and 1995, and was placed in solitary confinement while in custody, for fear that any access to a phone could lead to nuclear war.
The Morris Worm
As a graduate student at Cornell University in 1988, Robert Morris created what would be known as the first worm on the internet – just to give himself an idea of the size of the web. The worm was released from a computer at MIT in 1988 in hopes of suggesting that the creator was a student there. It started as a potentially harmless exercise but quickly became a vicious denial of service attack as a bug in the worm’s spreading mechanism led to computers being infected and reinfected at a rate much faster than Morris anticipated. By the time he realised the issue and attempted to rectify it by telling programmers how to kill the worm, it was too late. Once discovered as the author of the worm, Morris became the first person to be convicted by jury trial of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
Hacking under the pseudonym ‘Dark Dante’, Kevin Poulsen was multi-talented and also indulged in lock picking and forgery. As a teenager he narrowly escaped prison and was later recruited by research institute SRI International, but continued to delve underground. His exploits were revealed in 1988 when an unpaid bill on a storage locker led to the discovery of piles of blank birth certificates, false IDs and a photo of Poulsen breaking into a telephone company’s trailer. Poulsen fled, and a nationwide manhunt began. His most famous hack was in June 1990 when he hijacked the phone lines of a Los Angeles radio station that was promising a Porsche 944 S2 to the 102nd caller. His case later featured on NBC’s ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, when the show’s phone lines mysteriously crashed. The notorious multi-hacker was finally apprehended in April 1991.
Datastream Cowboy and Kuji
These two young hackers made history by causing havoc across global military networks, just because they could. On 28 March 1994, administrators at the Rome Air Development Center, a US Air Force research facility, discovered a password ‘sniffer’ had been installed onto their network, compromising more than 100 user accounts. Investigators determined that two hackers, known as Datastream Cowboy and Kuji, were behind the attack. Police informants were able to provide email correspondence with Datastream Cowboy, which revealed that he was a 16-year-old British boy who liked to infiltrate insecure military networks and even volunteered his phone number. After a month of investigations, in which the pair carried out a further 150 attacks, Scotland Yard closed in on Datastream Cowboy’s house. Once apprehended, Datastream Cowboy, real name Richard Pryce (pictured right), curled up into the foetal position and sobbed. It was another two years before Kuji, 21-year-old Matthew Bevan, was caught.
The Stuxnet worm
While some hackers and viruses are remembered for the unusual or funny, a malicious computer virus, first discovered in 2010, will go down in history for a very different reason. The Stuxnet worm has been called the world’s first digital weapon. Unlike other viruses, the worm seems to have been designed to cause physical damage to equipment controlled by computers. It was the first known case of hackers being able to elicit physical damage on real-world equipment, making it very complex and rather frightening. The worm was designed to target control systems used to monitor industrial facilities and was first discovered in nuclear power plants in Iran after a large number of uranium centrifuges began breaking unexpectedly. The worm, for which no one claimed responsibility, knocked out approximately one-fifth of the enrichment centrifuges used in Iran’s nuclear programme, damage which is estimated to have put the programme back by as much as two years.
The rise of social media has encouraged new groups who hack ‘for the lulz’ [laughs]and take to online platforms to publicise their feats. None have achieved such notoriety as Lulz Security, commomly known as LulzSec, a break-off group from hacking collective Anonymous. LulzSec publicised their hacks though Twitter with the intention of embarrassing website owners and poking fun at insufficient security measures. Having emerged in 2011 with an attack on Fox.com, the hackers went on to target more than 250 public and private entities, including an infamous attack on Sony’s PlayStation Network. The Sony hack compromised the private data of 24.6 million customers and led to the company taking down its online network for 23 days. The FBI had the last laugh: after the arrest of LulzSec co-founder Hector Xavier Monsegur, aka Sabu, in 2012, it emerged that the hacker had been supplying information about his colleagues during the campaign, leading to five arrests in the UK and Ireland.
DNC email leak
Hacks and leaks can be annoying, but they also have the potential to affect public opinion, as we may have witnessed in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election. In July 2016 a series of Democratic National Committee emails were leaked to and subsequently published by WikiLeaks. The collection of 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments from the governing body of the US Democratic Party, which included off-the-record correspondence with reporters, suggested that senior party officials may have favoured Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, her main rival for the Democrat nomination. The widespread controversy following the leak led CEO Amy Dacey, CFO Brad Marshall and communications director Luis Miranda to hand in their resignations, and may have played a part in swinging some states in favour of Donald Trump.

120+ retired military flag officers warn US ‘under assault’ by socialists, Marxists, urges Americans to fight back | American Military News
More than 120 retired military flag officers with Flag Officers 4 America published an open letter Monday warning that the United States is in “deep peril” and under “tremendous assault” by supporters of socialism and Marxism, urging Americans to get involved in “a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding.”
“Under a Democrat Congress and the Current Administration, our Country has taken a hard left turn toward Socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government which must be countered now by electing congressional and presidential candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic. The survival of our Nation and its cherished freedoms, liberty, and historic values are at stake,” the letter states.
“We urge all citizens to get involved now at the local, state and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable,” it continued. “The “will of the people” must be heard and followed.”
In the letter, the retired generals and admirals slammed the 2020 election process, citing “election irregularities.” The group also argued that Democrats’ bills H.R. 1 and S. 1, designed to federalize voting standards, would “destroy election fairness” and “[end] our Representative Republic.”…
Thought Crime: Ideology and State Power in Interwar Japan
In Thought Crime, Ward traces the history of Japan’s 1925 Peace Preservation Law ( ppl ), designed “to suppress communism and anticolonial nationalism” and explores the program of rehabilitation of political criminals (“thought criminals”) to which it gave birth (ix). The phenomenon of state-induced ideological conversion (tenkō) from the 1930s to the 1940s has been studied widely in Japan and by a number of Anglophone scholars. Rather than continue to treat it as a problem of Japanese culture (coded as premodern or irrational) or as a matter of individuals’ intellectual and moral choices, Ward focuses on what this history tells us about the nature of modern state power in Japan and, importantly, more generally. (His opening discussion of the judicial treatment of Somali Americans who attempted to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ isil ] makes the comparative case effectively.) He argues that the law and its ancillary agencies constituted an apparatus through which different modalities of power could be applied, according to changing conditions and the needs of the state, to individuals who represented “foreign” ideological threats to imperial sovereignty.
Drawing on Althusser’s concepts of repressive and ideological state apparatuses, Ward shows how—in response to the phenomenon of “mass tenkō” triggered by the conversion of Japanese Communist Party leaders Sano Manabu and Nabeyama Sadachika in 1933—the ppl apparatus shifted from a punitive emphasis on detention to a focus on rehabilitation via individualized guidance and family interventions using a network of agencies outside the formal institutions of the state. 1 Ward asserts that this apparatus gave substance to the legally nebulous ideology of the emperor-centered “national polity” (kokutai) that the ppl was written to defend, and to its corollary, the “loyal imperial subject,” formed through concrete practices such as writing reflective memoirs according to specific narrative conventions. In Foucauldian terms, Ward sees power working through sovereign/juridical, disciplinary, and governmental modalities. Rather than treat these aspects as elements in a linear evolutionary framework, however, he emphasizes their contemporaneous interplay, noting that the ppl maintained and reasserted its repressive features as needed.
The passage of the 1936 Thought Criminal Protection and Supervision Law extended this system across the Japanese empire. Moreover, leading figures in the ppl apparatus came to envision tenkō as a model for the national spiritual-mobilization campaign that followed the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937—a process through which all Japanese were to “convert” to “national thought” or “Japanese spirit” and offer themselves up selflessly to the defense of the kokutai and the advancement of Japan’s aims. The apparatus evolved differently under colonial conditions, however. In Korea, state efforts tended more toward repression than ideological reform, since authorities believed that even if colonial activists could be induced to abandon Marxism, they could never truly abandon the goal of colonial independence and that, in any case, their Korean-ness prevented them from converting to true Japanese imperial subjecthood. Nonetheless, by the mid-to-late 1930s, officials did seek to produce more ideological converts Korean converts did mobilize in support of the war effort (though their motivations require further analysis) and Japanese officials publicized their endeavors.
Thought Crime offers a lucid reflection on theories of power and the modern state while refusing to fetishize the particularities of the Japanese case. Some engagement with Stoler’s concept of imperial formations might have enabled more comparative reflections on colonial power. 2 Moreover, the concluding discussion of the afterlife of prewar and wartime ppl apparatus under Cold War “democracy” could have been connected to the theorization of 1930s–1970s “total war systems” by historical sociologists such as Yamanouchi. 3 Scaling down, whether or not the much-vaunted low-recidivism rates among converts had any validity beyond their value on paper (that is, as justifications for the apparatus to reproduce itself) remains an open question, as does the extent of rehabilitation organizations’ actual surveillance capabilities and the nature of their interaction with systems of local police power/violence or family structures. Greater attention to the social composition of those subjected to the ppl apparatus inside Japan might also have offered opportunities to reflect on how repressive and rehabilitative projects articulated differently across categories such as class, occupation, gender, or age, and what these dynamics might suggest for comparative, interdisciplinary inquiry.
History of Slavery Part 1- Slavery in Ancient Times
The history of slavery is a large and untellable story, full of tragedy and cruelty that spans both centuries and continents. Although it is difficult to pinpoint the exact year that slavery began, historians can trace the roots of this inhumane practice back roughly 11,000 years. Keep reading to learn about the origins of slavery, how it developed across ancient cultures and what you can do to help end a form of modern-day slavery for known as restavek .
The Origins of The Slavery Practice
The precise beginning of slavery is difficult to track because its origins predate historical recording and the written word. Due to the sociological makeup of the groups, we know that slavery wasn’t a part of hunter-gatherer societies, so the first identifiable evidence of slavery comes from the Code of Hammurabi out of Mesopotamia. This ancient text refers to slavery as a common practice throughout the region which had been in place for thousands of years at the time it was written.
Slavery Throughout the Ancient World
The practice of human slavery grew as the world became more civilized and organized cities and farms were developed. Sumer or Sumeria is still thought to be the birthplace of slavery, which grew out of Sumer into Greece and other parts of ancient Mesopotamia. The Ancient East, specifically China and India, didn’t adopt the practice of slavery until much later, as late as the Qin Dynasty in 221 BC. Historians debate whether or not the practice of slavery in India existed before this time, but many believe argue against its existence as there is no word in ancient Sanskrit that can be translated as “slave.”
The Life of a Slave in Ancient Times
Slavery in ancient times typically came about as a result of debt, birth into a slave family, child abandonment, war, or as a punishment for crime. At the outset, the slave trade wasn’t very popular and was certainly not a booming global business. Rather, slavers would often seek out a buyer who could use the specific skills of a slave, matching supply with demand on a local and personal level. According to historical texts, the lives of slaves in ancient times were typically better than that of peasants in the same era, as they had regular care, food, shelter and clothing. Slaves rarely attempted to run away unless their masters were atypically cruel.
Help Us End Child Slavery in Haiti
Although it is currently illegal in every country on the planet, modern day slavery still exists across the globe. Restavek Freedom exists to end a modern day child slavery practice known as restavek. The restavek system of slavery exists due to the poverty of the island nation of Haiti. Parents who cannot afford to feed and care for their children will often send them to live with wealthier families in hopes of a better life. All too often, however, these children become slaves in the family tasked with their care. Rather than spending their days at school and at play, they complete hard labor on meager rations with little love or support from those they live with.
Restavek Freedom is one of the top charities located in Haiti working to end this despicable practice. You can partner with us to end slavery in Haiti through financial support, child sponsorship and by drawing attention to the plight of children living in restavek through social media and community activism.
Half of the legendary duo Bonnie and Clyde, Bonnie Parker met Clyde Barrow in 1930, and, when he was sent to jail soon after on burglary charges, she smuggled in a gun that he was able to use to escape. She partnered with Barrow in 1932 during the Great Depression in what became a 21-month–long crime spree. The two stole cars and robbed gas stations, small-town banks, and restaurants throughout Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Missouri. They evaded the FBI and the police until 1934 and in the process set free five prisoners from Eastham State Prison in Texas, killed three police officers, and kidnapped a police chief. They were eventually caught and killed by the police in Louisiana when a friend revealed their whereabouts.
A brief History of Criminology
Criminology can be defined as the scientific method of studying crime and criminal behavior. It falls into the category of social science and includes a variety of disciplines such as anthropology, economics, psychology, and law. Since its humble beginnings, the field of criminology has greatly expanded and witnessed many changes in thought about why people commit crimes.
Crime in the Middle Ages
Crime in the Middle Ages was associated with religion and demonic manipulation. In short, the best way to explain crime was the influence the devil had on society or an individual. Besides crime, natural disasters were born of demonic influences. The bubonic plague which swept through England in the 1600’s leaving countless dead bodies in its wake was an example of demonic influences at work. During this era, deviant acts were considered to be a sin requiring harsh punishment or death. One popular form of punishment was trial by ordeal. For example, if a woman was accused of being a witch, her feet and hands were bound and she was tossed into a body of water. If she survived the ordeal, she was innocent. Likewise, if she drowned, she was guilty.
The first academic approach to the study of crime was referred to as the Classical Criminology. This school of thought occurred in the latter part of the 18th century during the Enlightenment. According to classical criminology, humans are rational beings whose behavior is the result of free will and rational choice. The motivation for deviant behavior is the pursuit of pleasure while avoiding pain. This led to the belief that in order to deter crime, the pain of punishment must outweigh any pleasure that may be gained. The downside to this philosophy was that it failed to consider how personal circumstances influence criminal behavior.
Prominent figures included Cesare Beccarria and Jeremy Betham who were concerned about the criminal justice system and its shortcomings. They studied the current legal and political systems and concluded that people are rational and choose to commit crimes. This went against the former belief that deviant behavior was attributed to heredity or demonic possession. Beccarria and Bentham aslo advocated for less cruel forms of punishment.
The positivist school of thought represents a shift in thought from the notion of free will to that of determinism. The prominent thinker in this school of thought was Cesare Lombroso whose work earned him the title of “father” of criminology. Lombroso is best associated with atavism, which he used to describe the physical defects that distinguished criminals from non- criminals. According to Lombroso, criminals were a throwback to more primitive times and could be identified using certain physical characteristics. In his later works, he realized the role environmental factors play in criminal behavior.
Criminological theories have been debated and expanded upon for centuries. However, in the last several decades, technology has led to many advances in the field of criminology. Criminologists can now use different methods including surveys to gain a better understanding of both criminals and their victims. Also thanks to technology, this information can be gathered more quickly than in previous eras. As society continues to grow and evolve, so too will the field of criminology.
Top Ten Most Evil People in History1 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September . read more.
Marvel had this guy being fought by Captain America in a comic or two he was so chuffing evil. This guy is a flipping psychopath, sociopath and every evil title you can give a man.
Hitler was not a man nor a human. I wouldn't say he was an animal because that is just bringing down the image of animals. Evil is an understatement. He was a walking on earth devil himself.
He killed quite a few groups. Jews, the disabled, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, the disabled, gypsies, and so on. I wish people would stop comparing obviously less evil things to him.
He started a war between the world. Is this anything good? Is he an angel? Should people regret almost giving him the nobel peace prize? No, except the last one of course.2 Joseph Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Georgian dictator, and was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.
Worse than Hitler. Don't get me wrong Hitler was incredibly despicable but this guy is a straight up complete monster. Hitler actually did some good things for Germany before he became power hungry but Stalin has always been rot evil from start to finish. Even imprisoning his son.
Hitler always gets the glory for "most evil", but most are unaware of just how cruel Stalin was, when you learn what happened to not just his enemies, but his own people, under him, it will make Hitler look like an amateur.
Hitler actually achieved some good things in his earlier days, cleaning up Germany and getting it out of the gutter financially. It was what happened later. it's a shame.
In contrast, Stalin did NOTHING good for the Soviet's, the country suffered during his entire regime and only got "better" after his death. He killed, starved, and enslaved his own people in addition to others. His death toll was higher then Hitler's by a considerable amount, beaten only by Mao (though Mao killed more, the atrocities were not as grotesque).
He wasn't even Russian either ironically.
This man is worse than Hitler. I know you might say that Stalin killed more than Hitler he served longer as a dictator, and while may be true, Hitler pretty much only killed and tortures Jews and other people out of retaliation. Stalin just killed whoever the hell he wanted to, which even included his own people. This man doesn't even care about his family, because his own son was imprisoned, and Stalin, just being the evil person that he is, didn't do anything (literally nothing) for his son, and his son eventually died in captivity. Just wow. He was basically the Frieza of the Human Race. He killed whoever he wanted to.
Stalin should be at the TOP. The concentration camps were bad and sad but the Gulags were worse. The difference is that the ghettos were only used for the Jews and sometimes the prisoners of war. But the Gulags were just almost anyone they can lay eyes on and the cold in Siberia was terrible, the rooms were made out of wood without pillows were any soft materials for sleeping they also sometimes didn't have heaters. He always wanted to be the best and strongest. He even tried to arrest the man who defeated Germany in world war 2 Gregory Zhukov commander of the Red army but he was too smart for him to be arrest. So come guys!3 Vlad Tepes (Dracula) Vlad III (Known as "Vlad the Impaler" or "Vlad Dracula", born 1431) was a Romanian monarch. He was the ruler of Wallachia a total of three times before his death in 1476/7. He is most famous for his reputation as a dictator and his gruesome torture methods and executions, in which he has served as an . read more.
I just voted on this so I could type this comment. What the heck is Vlad the Impaler doing so high on this list? Higher than Mao? You guys are terribly wrong. You're all forgetting that torture and all that was extremely commonplace in the 15th century, and the guy was trying to scare invaders (ottomans) away by impaling people. He didn't impale random people though, he had a strong sense of justice and mostly did it to thieves and enemies. Anyhow, he was the ruler of a kingdom vastly outnumbered by the invaders and he tried to use absolutely everything he could think of in his advantage.
Yes, I agree he was cruel, but this level of cruelty is not something out of the ordinary back in those times.
Also, the "(Dracula)" makes me puke.
This guy has to be the worst human of all time. He's so evil that, do you even call him a human? What the heck is he? Vlad Dracula, what is this guy? Getting enjoyment out of women, children, babies, Animals, sick people, poor people, And innocent people all getting impaled, burned alive, etc? This is PURE EVIL. He's so evil that, he can't even be classified as a human. Even Hitler, you can say he's the worst human of all time but Vlad?! What the hell is he?! What is he?! He can't be called a human! He's lower than the worst! What is he?! What is this "thing?! "
This guy needs to be 1 by far! What Hitler and Stalin have done is undeniable, and Justin Bieber (I don't understand it, he's a terrible musician but he never did what any of these guys did). This guy would order people to be sat on blunt rods, so they could be in pain for days, until they were sliced in half. He would smash people's heads into stone walls. This guy deep fried young children and forced their parents to eat them. This guy is without a doubt the most sadistic, evil, gruesome, bloodthirsty guy in history.
He impaled a stake up people's ass and let gravity force sink you down until the stake would come out of your mouth. He did this to children too. Filled up their draining blood in a golden chalice, and made the children look at him while he drank their blood with a sadistic smile. Then, after they were dead, after an unimaginable painful and long-time death, he roasted these children above a fire. So that he could then force the parents to eat them. There you have it. That's how evil he was.
Still think JB, Stalin, Hitler and Bin Laden is worse?
While I completely agree that Adolf Hitler was a very evil man, he had a multitude of disorders that made him think the way he does. He really couldn't help being born the way he was. If he wasn't he could have been one of the kindest and most positively influential people in all history. I voted for Osama because he had no mental disorders. He actually wanted to destroy all of the world because of his religion. Instead of getting into to much detail about my views on the world, I'm going to end on the statement that Osama Bin Laden was, in his time, the most evil man SINCE Adolf Hitler. If you disagree feel free to add whatever comments you wish above, because in all honesty you are entitled to your opinions as am I. Thank you for letting me share my thoughts on your website.
This is a very evil man. He planned 9/11 and several other attacks on the US just because he was mad at us for having more than he did.
Osama Bin Laden is not a Muslim, he's a heartless, ruthless evil donkey with no feelings with anyone what-so-ever. May the devil bless him in the eternal flames of hell.
This should not be #9! It should be #2! (Only because even though he was evil, he was not as evil and didn't kill as much innocent people as Adolf Hitler! Here are some reasons why this guy sucks!
1) If it weren't for this moron we would all have been in freedom now from the Afghanistan war!
2) He looks really ugly! Don't even think about looking up a picture of him! I hate his beard, I hate his face! I hate all his guts! I hate everything on him!
3) He was responsible for 9/11 and other Al-Qaeda Attacks like the Train Bombing in 2004 and other stuff!
4) He's the leader of the Al-Qaeda! Plus he started it!
5) I cannot believe he lived up to like 54 years old! It's good that president Obama sent Navy Seals to murder him, But He didn't deserve a long life!
6) He talks like an idiot (Even though he doesn't speak English) He says stuff like Much Burrah Hack Barrah, I don't know the rest!
7) He's a spoiled brat who always wants things to go . more5 Mao Zedong Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and commonly referred to as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary and founding father of the People's Republic of China, which he governed as Chairman of the Communist Party of China from its establishment in 1949, until his death in 1976. . read more.
This guy is ten times more evil than Stalin and Hitler. My grandfather survived Japanese army that invaded China, but died because of Mao Zedong's so-called the great leap forward. He was called out to build the railway, not only him, but also my oldest aunt, however, who was only about 14 years old. What could such a child do for that hard work? So my grandfather in fact did two persons' job. And most important what he fed was with very poor quality. Thus my grandfather became weaker and weaker, at last he was sent back carried by two people because he already couldn't walk that time. After several weeks, he died. Mao Zedong, the most evil guy, he also had to commit to my mother's disease, my mother suffered a lot at her childhood too! I hate communist party, forever! What's notable is that people killed by Mao Zedong are actually more than whom are killed by Japanese. So now as for me, or us, if Japanese aren't offensive, we can't be friends if again they try to do something they . more
Mao Tse-tung is the worst dictator in Chinese history, no I mean the entire history of humanity.
He killed way more than Hitler and Stalin, and most of his victims are his own fellow Chinese. His disaster Great Leap "Forward" has killed and starved many, his Cultural Revolution not only resulted in millions of deaths, but his so-called Cultural Revolution has also inflicted severe damage on Chinese culture and made majority of the mainland Chinese people pure materialists!
Furthermore, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, he not only didn't actively fight for China, but he and his commies fled and just waited for the Nationalists to be weakened by the war. (According to some sources, he secretly collaborated with the Japanese during the war) After the war is over, the ROC army suffered major loss, and Mao Tse-tung and his men showed up and began the Chinese Civil War. Some years after he (illegitimately) occupied mainland China, he even thanked the Japanese for invading . more
He harnessed the nationalistic wave that had swept China after Japan had been defeated and used it to unite the country under him. Basically, he used China's hatred for Japan to rise to power. The hatred that he helped to kindle lasts today in many Chinese citizens. He's no different than Hitler who united Germany in unified hatred against Jews. Although Japanese war crimes during WWII were unthinkably inhumane and cruel, if Mao Zedong hadn't used Japan as his scapegoat for power, relations between Japan and China could be in much better shape than they are today. Mao Zedong lied to and used the nation and people who placed their faith in him. Anyone who questioned him or insulted him was slaughtered or sent to work camps (Hitler much? ). If that isn't evil, I'm not sure what is.
Zedong killed 50 million
Khan was expanding his nation
Stalin killed 20 million
Hitler killed 8 million
Obama killed a terrorist that totally deserved it.
Even other communists see this guy as a genocidal freak. He believed that industrialised society was evil and we needed to return to a more natural peasant society. Everyone who was too educated (or had to wear glasses!) was rounded up and murdered.
If we're basing this on highest percentage of the country's population killed, then Police Pot is the worst. He killed 25% of the population in Cambodia. Not only that, he destroyed 95% of the Buddhist temples in Cambodia. While I personally think Stalin, Hitler and Mao (In that order) are worse, Pol Pot is also in that tier and they're all very close and you could realistically put them in any order. Pol Pot is, for lack of a better term, one of the most "underrated" monsters of all time.
Pol Pot was the Hitler of South East Asia. He turn his country into an Authoritarian Rule despite the difference is that he is more into the Communist Ideology. 3 Million of his people is just atrocious. Killing fields and the skulls still remain to this present day. This man is just a sick and brain twisted lunatic responsible for screwing his own people. Hell serves a great purpose where he is staying right now
Please note: this is not 4chan's Marijuana this man was one of the most evil people of all time. Everyone knows he killed millions of people. But what is even more insidious is he killed the smartest and most skilled Cambodians and forced intellectuals to join labor camps basically sending his country into the Stone Age and the country is still trying to recover.7 Heinrich Himmler Heinrich Himmler was a German dictator, and a leading member of the Nazi party. Himmler was one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany and one of the people most directly responsible for the Holocaust.
He was actually sometimes there to see the Jews die and I'm sure most of you know that he created the idea of the final solution (extermination of the the Jews) and turned Auschwitz into a jew extermination camp (to exterminate jews) therefore he is more evil then Adolf Hitler who should have been put third evilest person (after stalin leader of soviet russia.)
Most evil man in history, It was not Adolf Hitler who orchestrated the 15 million deaths carried out by Nazi Germany, it was Heinrich Himmler. He was head of the SS and the Gestapo (Nazi Secret Police). He orchestrated the deaths of 6 million jews, millions of christians, slavs, russians, polish, african, communists, disabled people, and other "undesirables".
The head of the Schutzstaffel (SS) and one of the highest ranking Nazi leaders, this was the man who planned out the Holocaust: the mass genocide against the Jews that resulted in over 6,000,000 deaths.
People who you should be voting for: Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Stalin, Ivan the Terrible, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Elizabeth Bathory, Pol Pot, Vlad the Impaler, Dr.H.H. holmes, Idi Amin Dada, Mao Zedong, Osama bin Laden, Leopold II of Belgium, Saddam Hussein, Jim Jones, Nero, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ayatollah Khomeini, Muammar Gaddafi, Caligula, Genghis Khan, Emperor Hirohito, Bloody Mary, Maximillien Robespierre, Attilla the Hun, etc.
Who you actually vote for: Justin Bieber, Rebecca Black, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Bill Gates, The Devil, Britney Spears, Lil Wayne, Miley Cyrus, Herod the Great, Richard Nixon, Eminem, Wayne Rooney, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, etc.
The time that's passed since his rule makes it hard for us to really feel the evil of this man -- but in regions affected by him, his name still rings terror. That says something.
He slaughtered babies and killed people by using the lead sprinkler which involved pouring molten metal or silver In the victims eyes or ears and after he was finished killing a hundred thousand men he took their wives away to be sexually assaulted he was probably considered the most evil man in history before stupid Hitler came along since he killed tens of millions of people and he tried to conquer the world. He killed 7000000 people in one massacre and one million people in another.
In my opinion, he is the most evil person of all time. He tried to take over the world, and he killed so many people! A lot of members in his family were bad too! He killed so many children in the Mongolian Empire! He conquered many parts of Asia and Europe, and the Mongolian Empire was probably the biggest empire of all time! Why is Justin Bieber higher than him? Why is Justin Bieber even on the list?
The original genocidalist. Huns and Turkic groups had raided Asia and Europe since perhaps the 1st century (and earlier in Central and East Asia). Ghenghis united the eastern and western Hun tribes into a unified army. Kind of Lake Shanyu (Hashana Khan) who had tried to wreck Song China 700 years prior. Huns killed millions of Muslims and raised Bagdad, they did what the UN did in one-tenth the time with premodern weapons. His campaign to spread Buddhism and kill of unliked groups was insane. The invasion of China under his Son? resulted in 40-80 million deaths (mostly Song Chinese).9 Kim Jong-il Kim Jong-il was the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea, from 1994 to 2011. By the early 1980s Kim had become the heir apparent for the leadership of the country and assumed important posts in the party and army organs.
Way to go. A bastard who enslaves his own "paradise" he calls North Korea, where prisons are labor camps and there is no Internet access whatsoever. He has people executed or punished harshly for simple stuff that shouldn't even be illegal. And he bans pants for women. Seriously? Christians, prisoners of war, criminals or people who simply want to escape from North Korea are all placed in labor camps, where they are forced to work their ass off 10+ hours in farms. They suffer merciless tortures, beatings and are murdered by guards randomly. And Kim Jong-Il has the nerve to just sit on his pile of money and laugh it off in his palace. He kidnaps other people, motivated by his own personal interests. And he has the entire North Korea think he is a "God". Him and his father are both tyrants and what the hell is Justin Bieber even doing on this list?
Horrible leader. He had everyone in his country thinking that he's the second coming of Christ. He outlawed all religions. He was hugely homaphobic and outlawed homosexuality. He banned people from leaving the country or from accessing any information from the outside world. He forced thousands of people to work on collective farms with starving wages including children and senior citizens. He imprisoned thousands more for speaking out against his inhumane regime as well as they're entire families in what can only be described as concentration camps. He had people regularly tortured. He refused to give food, water or any sort of medical attention to anyone who was not in the "glorious people's army". He clearly had his ambitions on brutally invading South Korea, possibly with nuclear and/or chemical weapons. He kidnapped South Korean families to take them to North Korea, where they would most likely be tortured. His propaganda machene was so terrible that only a child would believe . more
The leadership in North Korea disgusts me. Firstly I'm a socialist and what they do over there is nowhere near what socialism is about. Socialism is about equality for EVERYBODY. this guy lives like a king while children in his country are starving to death. My god, he is so disgusting as a person and a leader. I feel so bad for those in North Korea, they have a vain, pompous psychopath as a leader. And I might point out that their juche philosophy is not even socialism but fascism mixed with bits ripped off from Leninism. And while were on the topic how is Justin Bieber higher than Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden? I agree his musics awful, but if you think he is worse than all these mass murderers you are a spoiled capitalist brat who knows nothing of the real world.
He is more evil than Hitler or Stalin. At least Hitler and Stalin had the decency to feed some of their victims. Whenever someone would be starving in his country, Kim Jong il would just take them and torture and kill them in the most brutal ways possible. He had babies injected with some kind of poison too!10 Ivan IV of Russia Ivan IV Vasilyevich, commonly known as Ivan the Terrible or Ivan the Fearsome, was the Grand Prince of Moscow from 1533 to 1547, then Tsar of All Rus' until his death in 1584. The last title was used by all his successors.
I hate how everyone goes on about hitter and think he's the most evil man in history just because he started world war 2 but he thought he was doing a good thing! He still is very evil but Ivan the terrible is 100 times worse he tortured and killed men women and children by removing their ribs with red hot pitchers, disembowelling, boiling, fring, skinning be beheading hanging strangling them. He also buried people alive and killed hundreds of thousands of people. He beat his pregnant daughter in law causing a miscarriage. When his son heard of this he confronted him but Ivan killed him.
He's more of a psychopath then everyone on the top ten of this list (except maybe Pol, Mao and Dracula).
He tortured animals and children in gruesome ways as a child and adult, Built a wall around Novgorod (which was worse then what people say about trump), Made the adults go through watching there children die while giving the adults deaths through fire or being stabbed and beheaded. He even killed his own wife son and daughter in law (even Hitler wasn't that evil).
Stabbing his son, killing millions of people, and killing his daughter in law! He is evil! But I agree Hitler is more evil.
I'd put Ivan at number 2. He killed his own son and beat his pregnant daughter- in - law, Ivan wasn't called Ivan the Terrible for nothing.
The Newcomers11 Saddam Hussein Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti was the fifth President of Iraq, serving in this capacity from 16 July 1979 until 9 April 2003. A leading member of the revolutionary Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party, and later, the Baghdad-based Ba'ath Party and its regional organization Ba'ath Party – Iraq Region—which . read more.
Saddam is the the worst human beeing in the world! I can't even call him a human! This man took all young boys from a family with long origins from Iran and killed them all and you can't even find where are their bodies! He destroyed Iraq! Without his ignorance leading Iraq wouldn't have become the way it is right now! And absolutely thanks to the united state governments who collated with him for making Iraq the place in which you can confron only fear of death! People of Iraq has lost all their young children, they haven't seen happiness after all the things he did! Well there are people who actually love him bcs he did only good things to his people not all the country! He took all the young people who doesn't even know what's going on And cutter their head off on streets! He is evil!
This is the case of a really evil man who needed to be stopped. Imagine destroying entire village just because army needs to try out a new chemical weapon. It's OK, Kurdish people aren't worth much anyways, right? Yes, that was Saddam Hussein's way of thinking. And it didn't happen like one time or few times.
I still remember the scenes from Halabja, dead women and children on the streets shown on prime time television. Strangely, the Western world didn't seem to care, not the slightest demonstrations. A stark contrast to the protests seen when George W. Bush moved to get Saddam Hussein.
Don't forget Saddam actually improved the life of his people a lot, free education and healthcare, great infrastructure projects, loads more. Better than America or similar countries.12 Kim Jong-Un Kim Jong-un is the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea.
The world's biggest spoiled brat. Evil? Yes. in the case of nuking. Mostly selfish. Here are some bans that are in North Korea:
1) Jeans. Yes, jeans are a crime in North Korea! Even earrings. Because, as Kim Jong-Un says, it resembles American culture, which is one of North Korea's worst enemies.
2) Don't do jokes? Ban jokes. A while ago, Kim Jong-Un banned using sarcasm. So I guess he would be VEEERY happy if he saw me using this sarcasm right now. Then again, I don't think he could if he was on a different computer than his, because,
3) The internet in North Korea is just a humongous propaganda site. Nothing more. Only Kim Jong-Un recieves the REAL internet.
4) Music. You can't listen to your Ariana Grande or Taylor Swift if they don't praise the great Kim Jong-Un in their songs. Meh. Sarcastic again.
There are also other things banned, like pornography. So you see, North Korea is very poor because of Kim Jong-Un and all the other Kim Jong-'s
This selfish dude runs a country, enslaving his citizens and executing people for every little mistake, or- not even mistake, just an opinion, a thought, or an action. All citizens impoverished, and his country so corrupt that they don't have a seat at the UN.
Kim Jong Un is threatening countries with nukes that could wipe out whole countries that could trigger a brutal war or end our existence. What more, he does not care about his people and tortures them for no good reason.
Call me weird, but I don't think Kim Jong Un is purely evil. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure we'd have a new pearl harbor incident by now. And President Trump would probably be dead. He's definitely more evil than George W Bush, though.13 Idi Amin Idi Amin Dada was a Ugandan politician and military officer. He was the President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Amin was born either in Koboko or Kampala to a Kakwa father and Lugbara mother. In 1946 he joined the King's African Rifles of the British Colonial Army.
The Butcher of Uganda. Is a known cannibal, kept his victims' bodies in his fridge so he could laugh at them, executed his enemies on live TV, and dumped some of his victims into the Nile River. Ultimately killed over 500,000 people. This guy was the worst Ugandan leader, and arguably the worst African leader in history.
Idi Amin didn't do store peoples bodies and laugh at them, he tortured and killed anyone who opposed him, if his intelligence agency got a whiff of rebellion from you they shot you and left you there. He also barrier people in mass graves after quartering them
This dude was pure evil. When he killed people he kept their bodies in his fridge so he could look at it and laugh! He even executed his enemies on LIVE T.V.
There is just nothing at all redeeming about this guy. He was a truly evil and brutal man. If there's a hell, this guy belongs there without a doubt.14 George W Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician and businessman who was born in July 6, 1946. He served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. He is the eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.
Here's why he deserves to be this high and why he's the worst president in America history
1 I was born a year after he was because President which was a kinda recently
2 he knew that there were terrorists in our country but instead of doing anything about it he went to a school in Florida to see some kids
3 he probably made the U.S army loose bin laden while being distracted while bombing there base called Tora bora in the caves in a mountain of Afghanistan
4 a few years later instead of tracking down al qaeda and no. Laden he told the U.S to invade Iraq because instead because he's literally thirsty for its oil causing all Qaeda to do more attacks such as the 2002 night club bombing and the train bombing in 2004 and a attack in London in 2005 called 7/7
5 he never caught bin laden for his whole 8 years of being president luckily when Barack Obama was President he found where he was hiding and sent the navy seal team to raid his compound and shot him down.
Anyone that has a coordinated attack done in your own country is the biggest piece of shyt known to man. 9/11 was planned and executed due to missing funded being declared at the Pentagon just the day before, and somehow the fake plane flew up that part of the Pentagon, along with leveling the twin towers where CIA had offices. They probably cut the steel beams so the plane could gain entry or it would've splatted on the outside.
He's probably the most evil in my opinion because of his bad decisions as president that screwed up the country and even started a war. All the people that died in the wars to follow his rash actions, American or otherwise, I stand by you.
I also think that it was extremely disgusting to put Justin Bieber on the top evil people list. I could see putting him on the worst musicians of all time, but evil? Seriously? Whoever posted that needs to get themselves checked out, because putting a teenage pop star up next to Hitler is inexplicable.
First off, half of the people here I'm betting are supporters for Obama. That alone says something. Bush wasn't a good president, but he is FAR better than Obama in every way. At least we know Bush is from America. And George Bush does NOT deserve to be above Pol Pot and Mao Zhedong. This list is a joke. An unfunny joke.15 Benito Mussolini Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini was an Italian politician, journalist, and leader of the National Fascist Party, ruling the country as Prime Minister from 1922 until he was ousted in 1943. He ruled constitutionally until 1925, when he dropped all pretense of democracy and set up a legal dictatorship. . read more.
He was the leader of Italy during WW2. He hated black people and was a ally of hitler. He was also a coward, because he could not fight a single battle without help from Hitler.
He WAS Evil! He had similar beliefs as Hitler and kept on committing mass genocide against Black People!
Should be ahead of trump it shows how stupid society has evolved in obama and bush years
He invaded Ethiopia with tanks and planes even though the Ethiopians only had spears and lances.16 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, . read more.
Donald Trump is undoubtly the worst american president ever. He reinstated proposition 187, called Clinton and Biden cheaters when Biden won the election and Clinton won the popular vote. He hates immigrants, is number one racist, blames Asians for Covid 19, lied about the Coranavirus which led to about 200,000 deaths. He says he is the best, threatened to go to the supreme court when he lost, is the worst sport ever, and didn't even go to Bidens inauguration! He is a disgrace and shame to the United States and should be erased from the American History of Presidents. He says he is the best and done a lot for America but he is a liar. take THAT, Donald Duck. I still don't get why he wasn't impeached during his four years.
Lol why isn't he higher? He's locked immigrant children in cages like chickens and pigs at factory farms and separated from their families, he's caused potential war, and he's made lots of very sexist and racist remarks, all in all he's just so terrible. And nobody will forget. it's pretty much his fault covid-19 has killed 200,000 Americans. I'm not saying it's just Americans who matter, because ofc not, but he's the president of the USA. It's kind of his job to try and restrain these pandemics, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE LAST ONE WE HAVE HAD HAS BEEN LIKE 80+ YEARS! I feel like if he had paid more attention, not jabbered about it being a hoax, he could've saved a lot of people and not gotten the virus HIMSELF. He even took away the agreement thingy with the most of the rest of the world for that climate agreement to help stop carbon emissions or something. I don't want to die at 2050 because of his ignorance, I was born in the late 1990s and have plenty of life left, so will my children . more
No offence Americans but what were you thinking?! Making this weirdo your President?! Man. this was literally the worst president! Ignoring climate change, poverty, Coronavirus, and America's money and living. this guy is all about the money. What a jerk. I was celebrating when Joe Biden became president. Trump of your reading this your a selfish brat.
I'm shocked he isn't higher, he passed a bill to separate immigrant children from their parents only after locking them in 120 degrees or so cages, colluded with Russia and potentially Ukraine because he know that he will never have a shot at winning playing fair, has openly admitted that if he does lose that he will not give up the presidency, and lied to all of America about how deadly the coronavirus was to protect his image, and if he had not had such a lucrative plan of just waiting the coronavirus out, pretending there was nothing wrong, and blatantly saying it was a hoax, which cost around 200,000 their lives so far not even including all of the lives ruined by his almost nonexistent Covid-19 plan.17 Nero Nero was the last Roman emperor of the Julio-Claudian dynasty. He was adopted by his great-uncle Claudius and became Claudius' heir and successor. Like Claudius, Nero became emperor with the consent of the Praetorian Guard.
Nero set fire to Rome so he could make room for his new palace then blamed the fire on the Christians which ended in the killing of the Christians, when he got married to his second he gave her his first wife's severed head in a basket as a wedding gift, he had his second wife kicked to death when they had a argument, he said he was a god and if you disagreed you would end up in the sewers, Nero had a pet " gluton" a Egyptian slave that would eat anything even other humans!
Having Donald Trump and Justin Bieber ahead of Nero is laughable at best. Nero plotted the death of his mother, set fire to Rome and played a lyre while it was burning and murdered many Christians including Paul and Simon Peter. Many Christians referred him as the Anti Christ. And a pop star and a business man is higher than a insane psychopath? And where's Caligula?
He time traveled with a vengeance and instead of warning his home planet Romulus about destruction from a supernova, he waited 25 years to destroy Vulcan and 6 billion lives.
The other one burned Rome or something.
He dipped Christians in tar and set them on fire to make lights for parties. The Book of Revelations speaks of a beast. This man is that beast, and I'm not joking.18 Attila the Hun Attila, frequently called Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in March 453.
Died by a nosebleed. he deserved it so much. it also did good to the world because who knows what other huns would have done to the world.
How is he not in the top ten? He killed people for no good reason, threw infected bodies over city walls, destroyed several cities, and even told his men to collect the corpses' ears in order to prove that they were all dead. Just messed up.
He killed thousands of people and was one of the most feared people in the Roman Empire as well as the rest of the know world.
Attila just killed everyone in his path nonstop. He is the worst person of Medieval History.19 Fred Phelps Fred Waldon Phelps Sr. (1929-2014) was an American baptist minister and civil rights attorney who was notorious for forming the Westboro Baptist Church, his extreme views on homosexuality and his protests against military veterans, homosexuals and disaster victims, whose deaths (he believed) were the . read more.
This guy should swap places with Justin Bieber. He founded the most hatefeful group in America he hates basically everyone Jews, gays, Americans, and even other Christians (everyone who isn't in his church is going to burn in hell). The worst part is that the WBC uses children for all their dirty work and forces his hate down their throats he has 5 year olds singing "All evil perforate Jews! God hates you, and you know it! ", so he is like Hitler in some aspects.
The one person who is hated by every religious person, every atheist, and every agnostic.
Whether you're gay, Jewish, Christian, atheist, mussle, American, etc. He thinks you diserve to die and
suffer. He has a five year old girl sing these songs that are morally disgusting to begin with. He has disowned children of his that decided that they don't want to hate everyone. Tuley he is the most horrible person on earth.
This pseudo Christian is no longer with us. He probably thought when he died he'd go to heaven. It's not up to me of course, but I suspect he went elsewhere.
He better be burning in hell. Literally created the biggest hate group in America and destroys every logical man's brain cells.20 Napoleon Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.
Napoleon was not evil, he simply was a man, with greater ambitions than any other. He deserves respect and love while simultaneously receiving scrutiny for his actions, yet he is the one true leader of France, a man of Corsican descent who learned in his heart a love to make that nation great like no other in history.
Honestly there is little difference between Napoleon and Hitler. They both tried to conquer Europe, both failed, and both cost millions of lives in the process.
Napoleon WAS evil. He killed innocent people, many of whom were children and didn't know the wrongdoings of their parents,
Haiti was evil, I get that. He was awful to Haiti, so he deserves to be here. But he did free the Jews, so he's a mixed bag.
Before Hitler, King "Coverup" slaughtered ten to twenty million in his personally owned Free Congo State. Why? To speed the production of natural rubber, suddenly a wide open market with the advent of the bicycle and automobile. It's also noteworthy that he rewarded his enforcers in peculiar fashion -- paying out bonuses for dirty deeds evidenced by body parts.
His brand of mayhem was the inspiration for the methods employed in the Rwandan massacre.
Leopoldo II has to be one of the most horrible human beings of the 19th century. He turned Congo into his own private colony, in which his army would carry out gruesome atrocities. It his believed that 10 million Congolese died under his rule. Why? In the name of resources. You could argue that this dude was the first to have committed genocide on an industrial scale. Also, his ruthless colonization of the Congo is what kick - started the scramble for Africa.
He was responsible for the genocide of masses of Congolese for the expansion of Belgian and European industry. His colony in the Congo, which was operated more by his kingship than by the government of Belgium, made Congo and the central African region what it is today. People blaming Kony for the slaughter of innocents would do well to read "King Leopold's Ghost" to see how the atmosphere where small-scale warlords like Kony could thrive in was created.
Leopold should at least be number 10 of this list. He was a complete monster who exploited the natives of the Congo for money. Under Leopold, Belgium soldiers cut off the hands of the Congo natives, overworked them to death, raped their women, and did other equally horrible things to the people of the Congo. The only reason that he is not remembered for his reign of terror over the Congo today is because the people of the Congo do not have power to bring Leopold's historical horrors to light (like the Jews do with the Holocaust of World War II), and Belgium became a victim of Germany during the "Rape of Belgium" during World War I. This event caused the Allies of World War I to condole with Belgium and also bred hatred for Germany during World War I and the years following it. In fact, before the events of the Holocaust, King Leopold II was the main example that people used to describe someone evil (similar to the way people speak of Adolf Hitler today). Leopold II lied to many people . more22 Fidel Castro Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, known as Fidel Castro (August 13, 1926 – November 25, 2016), was a Cuban politician and revolutionary who governed the Republic of Cuba as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976 to 2008. Politically a Marxist–Leninist and Cuban nationalist, he . read more.
He's a very controversial figure, largely due to the false perception of him created by the communist paranoia in America. His roll in history also ended up somewhat muddled with Che Guevara's. The truth is that no leader can be perfect, there will always be the good things they do and then the horrible things they do, whether they wanted to or not. Lenin is idolized by many, but that doesn't mean he got off Scott free from some pretty awful things during the revolution, but he still managed to improve the state of Russia during his brief rule (granted everything went downhill after that). It's the same with Castro. Obviously a revolution is no happy go lucky thing, people end up getting their hands dirty whether they like it or not. However, Cuba was in a pretty awful state before the revolution. Cuban citizens suffered greatly under the oppressive capitalist rule, and while things are still iffy in Cuba, but what did you really expect? A utopia? The current state of Cuba is greatly . more
He's just very controversial. When he died just a few months ago, I was actually happy, and it because he's one of the main causes for Cuba's problems, and for why it's now so totalitarian. But let the people have their opinions on him.
I guess only Americans would put Castro (as well as Ho Chi Minh) in this list. Just because they've beaten the Yanks, does not make them evil people. In fact, I'd say it makes them heroes.
Why the hell is he here? Castro may not be perfect, he's done some bad things, but he saved Cuba from the CIA and US rule! He's done a lot of good, so why is the 16th most evil person ever?
A complete monster who performed horrible experiments on the prisoners of Auschwitz. He would do things like sew twins together in an attempt to create conjoined twins and inject chemicals in twins eyes to see if they changed color. One of his favorite experiments was to inject one twin with lethal chemicals or a strain of a deadly disease, thereby killing them, before killing the second twin so he could compare their corpses. He would also kill people with heterochromatic eyes so he could remove their eyes and send the eyes to Berlin for study.
Have you heard of "The Human Centipede. " The plot of that sick, twisted movie was inspired by the experiments that the Nazis performed on their prisoners, and the villain of the movie was based on Mengele himself.
I can't express how much I hate this guy's guts. He should at least be in the top twenty.
I actually enjoy reading his works. The results of his tests are really interesting and some of his studies got picked up successfully by "normal" scientists. But this doesn't change the fact, that he simply used people as Guinea pigs. People who didn't agreed to be part of his studies, but their opinion meant nothing. Not that residents of mental care institutions in most of XX century had much more right to argue. So when I'm woting for him now, I'm voting for his preceders and decendants in the same time.
So, Hillary Clinton is considered more evil than Josef Mengele, a guy who experimented on people, sewed people together to create conjoined twins, injected dye into people's eyes to see if they changed color and shredded people's testicles? (I'm not making this stuff up)
He should be in the top ten he was evil he did cruel things like change the eye color of someones eye and some even worst then that. Do you know the song by Slayer Angel of Death it's about him the song made the holocaust survivors and their families angry.24 Elizabeth Bathory Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed was a serial killer from the Báthory family of nobility in the Kingdom of Hungary.
She has been labelled the most prolific female serial killer in history and is remembered as the "Blood Countess," though the precise number of victims is debated. The stories of her sadistic serial murders and brutality are verified by the testimony of more than 300 witnesses and survivors as well as physical evidence and the presence of horribly mutilated dead, dying and imprisoned girls found at the time of her arrest. She and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls, with one witness attributing to them over 650 victims.
A lot of the higher-rankers killed more, but political reasons can at least be strategy, even if it's bad strategy. Bathory bathed in the blood of her victims in order to look younger. There is no way, even in the most demented mind, that her looking younger was going to help more people than it hurt.
They created so many legends about her brutal, cruel and so bloody "exploits".
Really creepy woman-evil
Elizabeth Bathory killed lots of girls by torturing them slicing them and burning them.
This was a guy hitler called the man with an iron heart if hitler calls you bad you've screwed up
The History Of Using White Female Sexuality To Justify Racist Violence
These are the words the Charleston shooter reportedly spoke during Wednesday night's massacre, according to Sylvia Johnson, a woman who told NBC News she spoke to a survivor of the Charleston shooting. Johnson is a cousin of pastor and state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, who was killed Wednesday night at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Nine people were murdered in the house of worship in cold blood -- three men and six women.
We have yet to hear from the survivors of the attack directly, so there are a lot of unknowns. We can't be sure of the exact words the shooter used while he was carrying out the massacre, or the exact meaning behind them. But if Johnson's account is accurate, there is a disturbing historical context for the sentiments expressed.
A white man committed horrific acts of violence -- domestic terrorism, a hate crime -- against black men and women. He allegedly used the "protection" of white women and their sexuality as the reason behind it. It appears to be toxic white masculinity at its worst.
As Feministing columnist Choe Angyal pointed out on Twitter, this narrative is not new:
"You rape our women and you’re taking over our country." OUR women. White women. Racist violence in the name of white womanhood, yet again.&mdash Chloe Angyal (@ChloeAngyal) June 18, 2015
The sentiment that black men rape white women more often than white men do is patently false, but it's one that carries historical significance. The United States has a storied history of white female sexuality being used as a justification for racist acts of violence.
In the late 1800s, the idea that black men were innately driven to rape white women was often used to justify the lynching of black men. In 1923, the Rosewood massacre in central Florida was launched based on the rumor that a white woman had been sexually assaulted by a black man. In 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till was murdered by two white men for supposedly flirting with a white female grocery store cashier.
As Jamelle Bouie wrote for Slate: "Make any list of anti-black terrorism in the United States, and you’ll also have a list of attacks justified by the specter of black rape."
Dr. Lisa Lindquist-Dorr, associate professor at the University of Alabama, spoke to The Huffington Post about the historical potency of this particular sexual trope.
"It was a racial red herring that would be brought up to justify violence or legal tactics to oppress African Americans," she said. "One that wasn’t based in reality. It’s a trope that’s trotted out to justify oppression."
In her book White Women, Rape, and the Power of Race in Virginia, 1900-1960, Lindquist-Dorr explained the rape myth that dominated white, Southern culture. "The myth insisted that black men were driven to assault white women and that, as a deterrent, 'black beast rapists' should pay with their lives," she wrote.
The trope was a particularly effective one because of the way white female sexuality has historically been viewed and positioned. "Sexual access to women is a trophy of power," Lindquist-Dorr told HuffPost. "White women embodied virtue and morality, they signified whiteness and white superiority, so sexual access to white women was possessing the ultimate privilege that white men held. It [also] makes women trophies to be traded among men."
If the Charleston shooter's comments are any indication, these sentiments are still depressingly ingrained in our culture. White women's bodies are still used to explain away the destruction of black bodies and lives -- both male and female.
Some white allies are already speaking out on social media to make it abundantly clear that white women will not stand for violent hate crimes being justified in our names.
If it's true the shooter said "you rape our women and you have to go"—no. NO. I am white but I am not "yours." NOT in my name. I reject it.&mdash ClinicEscort (@ClinicEscort) June 18, 2015
#CharlestonShooting suspect allegedly said "You Rape Our Women" during the shooting which signals deep-seated sense of entitlement.

"They rape our women".. anyone picking up on the misogynistic "white male entitelement" element yet? #CharlestonShooting&mdash Stephanie Lamy (@WCM_JustSocial) June 18, 2015
White women don't need the protection of hateful, angry, violent white men. If anything, we all need protection from them.
