I would personally judge on how relevant/irrelevant the historical person is, therefore I certainly wouldn't choose Hitler or Stalin as they contributed significantly to 20th century history~~regardless of what they did.

My least favourite? Probably no-one.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

I hated Pol Pot before it was mainstream *hairflip*.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

That's why I wrote it that way. I foresaw this comment :)

Probably every big religious figure from the past who attempts to fool people into thinking he's a messenger from God.

Muhammad, Jesus, David Koresh, etc. You get what I mean.

I would say Pope Alexander VI or one of the other Popes of similar repute. They claimed to be the world's greatest moral authority, yet apparently had no morality to speak of.

I don't like John Maynard Keynes, for obvious reason (economic disagreement and he lacked economic knowledge). I dislike both Karl Marx and Muhammad equally, as both brought about varying degrees of filth and manipulation. I complete abhor Mao Zedong, as his economic illiteracy and lack of knowledge of inverse incentives lead to the deaths of 60 million in a very short time frame.

I really dislike Anita Sarkeesian, even though she isn't a historical figure. She is still alive, unfortunately, and is fueling more of this radical feminist ideas that are eating away at my soul.

Probably Mao Zedong, that guy was a total idiot who f*cked up a nation. I can at least admire Hitler for his great leadership skills and the way he managed to pull Germany out of depression. Mao on the other hand was a total idiot who left China under a per capita GDP of <$200.

Abraham Lincoln,

Not only for having one of the most corrupt administrations in our history, but for the fact that now most people think he was the greatest president of all time, showing just how stupid people are. It was also the turning point for America, when it began heading down the road towards fascism (a road it's been on a while now), government owned by the corporations/industries/businesses instead of the people.
