In your opinion, who is the most evil man in history?

Posted by: PetersSmith

These 16 individuals led to the deaths of hundreds of others for various purposes, some more disturbing than others. I did not include those that did it in the name of conquest, such as Genghis Khan or Hirohito. If you noticed Hitler is not here. This is because I chose some of his top Nazi commanders instead as they more directly killed people.

Mao Zedong

Mao Zedong was dictator of China from 1943 to 1976. Mao’s plan was to make China a superpower country. Mao also said he would turn China into a powerful country that could match the United States and the Soviet Union. In the process however,...  he created the greatest famine and genocide in history. Under Mao’s rule China endured a series of economic disasters and political terrorism. Millions of Chinese died by execution, starvation and committing suicide. Tens of millions were sent to labor camps. 5 Million were executed. Mao turned neighbors against neighbors and sons and daughters against their teachers and parents. Mao used fear to root out every last hint of dissent. A criticism uttered in private could lead to public humiliation, torture or death. The famine killed about 30 to 45 million people. Millions died from disease. Another 700,000 committed suicide out of fear of Mao. Mao lead 2 Great Leap Forwards which was a plan to use China’s vast population to rapidly transform the country from an rural economy into a modern communist society. Both combined killed 40 to 50 million people. Millions of children were also killed. If children stole food, they would have their fingers chopped off. Mao once lead a revolution that everyone in China was supposed to accept, but if you opposed the revolution, you would either be imprisoned for many years, tortured or executed. People were expected to work till they dropped. People were beaten up and tortured if they could not do their work and if they were late going to work. People were also beaten up if they said something that made Mao or his men angry. Mao’s brutal men had methods of torture like whipping, burning people with incense or with flame of a kerosene lamp and nailing a person’s palms to a table and then to insert bamboo splints under fingernails. Mao killed 70 million people. Mao died in 1976 after suffering from a nervous system disease   more

Josef Mengele

He was a physician in the concentration camp Auschwitz and the doctor known as the “Angel of Death.” He was in charge of selecting Jews to be sent to concentration camps or to be killed. He practiced many experiments on people. One of the most...  common experiments was on twins. He would find the similarities and differences in the genetics of twins, as well as seeing if the humane body could be manipulated. There were about 3,000 twins, only 200 survived. The twins were arrange by sex and age. During the experiment, he would pour chemicals into the eyes of the twins to see if it would change their colors into sewing them together in hope to create conjoined twins. He sometimes tried to change the sex of the twins. He sometimes forced parents to kill their children. He tortured children to see how long they could survive. He often beat prisoners to death personally. He sent over 400,000 people to their deaths in the gas chambers. Mengele escaped with his family to South America and lived there the rest of his life. It is possible that he used 88 twins in his medical experiments there. He died from a stroke in 1985 while swimming in the Brazilian ocean   more

Vlad Dracula

Vlad was prince of Wallachia a total of 3 times, in the years 1448, 1456 to 1462, and 1476. He is best known for inspiring the Dracula ledgend, the cruel methods he used to torture and kill people and how much he enjoyed killing people. His last...  name, Dracula, means little devil. The most common method he used to kill people was impalement. Vlad had a horse attached to each of the victim’s legs and a sharpened stake was gradually forced into the body. The end of the stake was usually oiled and care was taken that the stake was not be to sharp. Normally the stake was inserted into the body through the buttocks and was often forced through the body until it emerged from the mouth. However, there were many times where victims were impaled through other bodily orifices or through the abdomen or chest. He was so found of doing this that he is now known as Vlad the Impaler. The height of the stake ranked the victim. Vlad also loved to impale animals. It was possibly of the most gruesome and painful way of dying in history. Victims would endure this for hours or days. Everyone in the city Amlas, including every children, went through this, which was up to 20,000 people. Vlad did not want the stake to be too sharp because the victim would die to soon and it would not be as much fun to watch. He would impale children and babies through their mother’s chests. Impalement was his favorite way of killing people but it was not his only method. Vlad ordered people to be poisoned, blinded, strangled, hanged, decapitated, stabbed, disemboweled, skinned, exposed to extreme elements and animals, hacked, dismembered, burned, boiled, scalped, roasted, nailed in the head, buried alive, etc. He would like to cut off people’s noses, ears, hands, feet, limbs, and sexual organs. He often cut of peoples private parts (especially in the case of women) and would keep them. People were sometimes worked to death. He also smashed the heads of people into hard walls. He liked to eat and drink around bodies of dead and naked people that had stakes through them. He destroyed many of his villages on his way into battles. He roasted children and forced their parents to eat them. Vlad hated people who were sick, weak, poor, beggars or vagrants. He invited all of the poor and sick of Wallacha to a fake party. He asked them if they wished to be be anything other than poor people. When they all said yes, they were all burned immediately. He murdered his wife had had her sexual organs cut off. There were rumors that Vlad loved to drink blood. Vlad killed over 100,000 people. If that is true he killed 20 percent of Wallacha’s population. Nearly all of those people went through horrible ways of killing that would take a long time. Vlad was decapitated in 1476   more

Iosif Stalin

Good ol' Joe is best known for leading the Soviet Union after Lenin's death and onwards to the beginning of the Cold War. However, he took Lenin's idea of communism and then completely obliterated it and installed his own. For thirty years the Sovie... t Union were subject to Stalin's brutal regime. For thirty years anyone who had an opinion was either killed or put in the Gulag. However, Stalin also ignored many of the problems within his country. One of which was the Soviet Famine resulting in 10 million deaths of innocents. Stalin killed those who sought to protect the Motherland, but he just didn't care. In total, Stalin led to the deaths of around 60 million of his own people. “One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is simply a statistic.   more

King Leopold of Belgium

He was king of Belgium from 1865 to 1909. He ruled the Congo Free State, which was a private project, from 1885 to 1908. The Congo Free State was 76 times larger than Belgium. He is considered one of the greatest liars of all time because he f... ooled the whole world that he was helping the Congo and the world believed him. Instead he turned the Congo into a country ruled by force labor. He was free to rule the Congo Free State as a personal domain. Leopold ruled about 20 million Congolese. Under his administration, the Congo Free State was subject to a terror regime. The Congo Free State also became one of the most infamous international scandals of the turn of the century. His men tortured, maimed, and slaughtered millions of Congolese. Congolese were killed if they did not bring enough rubber. Hundreds of thousands of people had their hands, legs, feet, arms, heads, ears, and noses cut off. Many villages were burned and the Natives forced to flee into the jungle. Leopold’s men raped, flogged and eat the natives. They slaughtered hundreds of thousands of children. More than 500,000 died from various diseases. A few million died of starvation. Leopold killed around 10 million Congolese (or 50% of the Congo’s population). Before Leopold acquired The Congo Free State, most African countries were free countries, but within 30 years after Leopold acquired the Congo Free State, all but 2 African countries were taken by European countries. He did all of this just to get more money. Leopold died in 1909   more

When he was young, he had had habits of taking creatures like dogs, cats, bears, and other creatures to the top of tall buildings and then throwing th... em to the ground. Ivan killed people when he was a teenager. Ivan found them fun and amusing. When Ivan became Tsar of Russia, he became paranoid and started to see enemies everywhere.

Heinrich Himmler

Heinrich Himmler was the head of the SS, the second most powerful Nazi and the architect of the Final Solution. He, more than anyone, encouraged and facilitated Adolf Hitler’s decision to implement the Final Solution to the Jewish question, as wel... l as other programs of ethnic cleansing that destroyed millions of lives during World War II. He was responsible for 6 to 7 million deaths of Poles, Russians, communists, and other groups whom the Nazis deemed unworthy to live including people with physical and mental disabilities. Himmler once said “The decision, therefore, lies here in the East; here must the Russian enemy, this people numbering two hundred million Russians, be killed on the battle field and person by person, and made to bleed to death”. His house contained furniture and books made from the bones and skins of his Jewish victims. Himmler committed suicide in 1945 by eating poison   more

Idi Amin

Amin was dictator of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Amin charmed and promised the world that he would bring peace and democracy to the people of his country. Instead he turned Uganda into a poverty-stricken land patrolled by death squads. Amin was ... possibly the most brutal and merciless dictator of all time. His rule was characterized by human rights abuses, ethnic persecution, political repression, massacres and the expulsion of 80,000 Asians from Uganda. Amin pitted his people and executed hundreds of thousands of his people. Amin was probably the most sadistic dictator in the 20th century. He would show executions of people on television. Amin tortured and killed his country’s soldiers, government officials, teachers, artists, doctors, journalists, engineers, politicians, police officers, photographers, lawyers, business people, ordinary citizens, ministers and children. Amin’s men tortured and killed people with sledge hammers while Amin kept the pictures for fun and amusement. Amin often had his victims buried alive. Amin would often give the heads of his enemies to crocodiles. Hundreds of thousands of dead bodies washed up to the shores of Lake Victoria. Amin killed 4,000 people by throwing them into crocodile infested rivers. About 50,000 people died from disease, most were children. He would cut the flesh of people and force them to eat it until they died. Amin ate human flesh and he said proudly that he was a cannibal. He also drank human blood. Amin mutilated one of his wives and had her limbs sewn upside down. Amin killed and tortured 300,000 to 500,000 Ugandans. Amin was forced in exile in Saudi Arabia for the rest of his life. Amin died almost 25 years later in 2003. In that time Amin lived a very peaceful life   more

Caligula

He was Rome’s 3rd emperor from AD 37 to AD 41. He was wild, extravagant, with a penchant for sexual adventures. In the first 3 months in his reign of terror, over 160,000 animals were sacrificed in his honor. He later got a brain fever that ma... de him mentally ill. He then believed he was a god. Under Caligula, the law became an instrument of torture. He believed prisoners should feel a painful death. He began to brutally murder for fun. He would kill his opponents slowly and painfully over hours or days. He decapitated and strangled children. People were beaten with heavy chains. He forced families to attend their children’s execution. Many people had their tongues cut off. He fed prisoners to a lions, panthers and bears and often killed gladiators. One gladiator alone was beaten up for 2 days full days. He sometimes ordered people to be killed by elephants. His cruelty caused people to commit suicide. He demanded sex with a lot of women including his 3 sisters. He would force husbands to give up their wives. He exiled his sisters and had his brother in law put to death. He caused many to die of starvation. Sawing people was one of his favorite things to do, which filleted the spine and spinal cord from crotch down to the chest. He liked to chew up the testicles of victims. He killed some of his most important friends and his father-in-law. One time Caligula said “I wish Rome had but one neck, so that I could cut off all their heads with one blow!” In AD 41, Caligula was killed by Casius Chaerea, a man whom Caligula had mocked at court for his effeminacy   more

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini

He was the religious leader of Iran from 1979 to 1989. He was also the leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which killed 3,000 to 60,000 people. The Shia Islamic Law had a lot of harsh rules for the normal people. Men and women had strict ... dress codes, citizens lost equal rights and met with very harsh punishments, were brutalized, tortured and killed. People were imprisoned and tortured for listening to music. People were lashed 100 times for kissing in public. People were tortured and killed if they did not believe in Allah. People were shot, hanged, blinded, gassed, stabbed in the chest, stoned to death and burned alive. People had their hands cut off for stealing. Women had their faces slashed or burnt by acid. People were killed by machine guns, knives, clubs, cutters, and acid. In the 1988 Iranian Massacres, Khomeini ordered that every prisoner that did not repent anti-regime activities should be killed. About 30,000 people were killed in 5 months while thousands of others were killed for other reasons including children that were hanged from cranes. His followers held 52 Americans captive for 444 days, but there were others there for 6 years. They were blindfolded most of the time. They might have suffered a fate worse than death. He spread his ways across the Middle East. Saddam Hussein feared the spread of Khomeini’s militant brand of Shiism so he attacked Iran, which started the Iran-Iraq War, which caused the deaths of 1 to 2 million people. During the war, Khomeini sent young boys to fight and refused to make peace with Iraq even though there was at least one moment when Saddam offered peace for Iran. Because Khomeini refused to settle peace, Iran’s economy was ruined and 500,000 to 1 million Iranians were killed. His hatred of America and Western society inspired and paved the way for terrorist groups including Al-Qaeda. He paved the way for the Islamic Holy War, which has killed more than 2 million people. Khomeini died from cancer in 1989   more

Pol Pot

Pol Pot was Prime Minister of Cambodia from 1976 to 1979. His plan was to destroy the civilization of Cambodia and turn it into a new age. He turned Cambodia into a killing field. Pol Pot is the only man in history that ordered an official gen... ocide against his whole country and he killed the greatest percentage in the amount of time he was in power. He declared that the Buddhist religion, money, and personal possessions would all be banned. His communist government forced mass evacuations of cities. Millions of Cambodians were displaced, tortured and killed. People were separated from friends and families. People died from effects of slave labor, malnutrition, poor medical care, starvation and execution. Hundreds of thousands were clubbed to death and buried alive. Thousands were killed from disease and torture. Many were hanged. Millions of people including the elderly, pregnant women, and children would stand in water up to their necks in cold and rainy seasons, working on canals, with legs and feet swelling up and bleeding. If you stopped working because of illness, you would not be feed or you would be killed. If a worker made a mistake, he or she would be flogged to death or shot. You would be expected to work until you dropped dead. Many people had no rights to eat. If people were found eating dead humans, they would be buried alive. Pol Pot wanted teenagers to become solders with a love of killing. If Cambodian people married people of Vietnam, the husband and wife would be killed. People that spoke and looked like Vietnamese were also killed. Pol Pot often ordered people to kill and fight Vietnamese. He took pictures of the people he executed and recorded them in detail. Prisoners were forced to drink humane urine. He ordered babies to be torn limb by limb. People were beaten to death by blunt instruments like hammers, spades and axe handles. People were also killed by sharpened bamboo sticks. Some of his men killed people by bleeding them to death. He liked to keep the skulls of dead people. To Pol Pot, his people’s lives were not just cheap, but of no value at all. He killed 1 to 3 million Cambodians, 25 to 33 percent of the country. Pol Pot died in April in 1998 of natural causes   more

Kim Il Sung

He was dictator of North Korea from 1948 to 1972. Kim Il Sung started the Korean War, which killed 3 million people. After the war, he brainwashed the people of North Korea into idolizing him, even though he made the country a lot worse than it ... was before. He killed all of his officers and rivals. In addition, he exiled or executed 90% of his generals that fought in the war. More than 200,000 political prisoners were forced into concentration camps. People were forced into concentration camps for something as little as dropping a picture of Kim Sung accidentally on the ground. If someone committed a crime, the person’s children and the children’s children would also be killed or sentenced to life imprisonment. Prisoners were starved, tortured or worked to death. Prisoners were sometimes forced to kneel in a box motionless for months until he or she dies. Hundreds of thousands were killed by firing squads and in concentration camps. Of the population of 22 million Koreans, 900,000 to 3.5 million have died in a famine. Kim Il Sung died in 1994 of a heart attack, which was brought on by a row with his son Kim Jong Il, who has proven that he is worse than his father   more

Saddam Hussein

Saddam was dictator of Iraq from 1979 to 2003. During that time, about 2 million people died as a result of his actions. He authorized many attacks on people like the chemical attack on Kurdish village of Halabja, which killed 5,000 people. Sa... ddam’s 1987-1988 campaign of terror against the Kurds killed 50,000 to 100,000. An Amnesty International report said, “victims of torture in Iraq are subjected to a wide range of forms of torture, including the gouging out of eyes, severe beatings, and electric shocks… some victims have died as a result and many have been left with permanent physical and psychological damage.” Saddam also had approximately 40 of his own relatives murdered. He executed over 400,000 Iraqis. Many of them were tortured to death and filmed so he could watch them at his house. In 2006, Saddam was hanged after being found guilty for being convinced of crimes against humanity by the Iraqi Special Tribunal   more

Tomas de Torquemada

Torquemada was the Grand Inquisitor of Spain from 1483 to 1498. He started the Spanish Inquisition, which was established on November 1, 1478 and disbanded in July 15, 1834. The Spanish Inquisition was an ecclesiastical tribunal run by the Spani... sh monarchy and established to root out heretics and other individuals who threatened the status of Roman Catholic Church in Spain. Torquemada’s spies turned friends against friends and they made sons and daughters testify against their parents. Torquemada without lack of evidence would order Jews to be tortured or killed because of his discrimination towards them. Countless of people were tortured, whipped, subjected to horrific physical punishments, and forced to surrender all of their property. Children sometimes died from starvation. People were often naked when they were tortured. Torquemada favored many forms of torture like foot-roasting and suffocation. People were sometimes burned alive, hanged, and grilled. Some ways of torture often went through sexual organs. One way to torture people was the garrucha, which pulled a prisoner’s arms and legs from their sockets. Another way of torturing Jews was the toca, a water torture, which was when water was forced down the victim’s throat. Another method was the porto which used tight cords to stop blood from flowing. Another method was the turtle which was when victims were crushed with heavy weights. Another method was when a victim would be pushed into a garroting chair, which had a sharp point in the neck region. Another method was the rack which stretched a person’s body a foot or more. Then an inquisitor would rip off the victim’s nipples, tongue, ears, nose, and genitals. Some people were skinned from their head to their waist. 2,000 to 10,000 Jews suffered death by being burned on stakes and more than 9,000 were punished by other methods. Many Jews died from starvation. By one account, he killed over 30,000 people. Torquemada’s hatred of heretics influenced King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella to expel every Jew or Muslim that had not embraced Christianity which was 200,000 to 300,000. Most of them had ancestors that have lived in Spain for centuries. It is said that Torquemada himself had Jewish blood in him. Torquemada died of old age in 1478   more

Can you add Ronald Reagan?
PetersSmith says2014-07-06T11:22:51.4132743-05:00
"Man" as in human. Ronald Reagan may have been evil, but he did not result in the death of hundreds of thousands of his own people. I consider Reagan a conqueror, not someone who has committed genocide against his own people. Certainly the others on the list are worse than him and if you truly disagree then just stick with the "others" category.
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-06T11:28:40.3538148-05:00
Why is Vlad Dracula on this list?
PetersSmith says2014-07-06T11:30:28.0874148-05:00
"Everyone in the city Amlas, including every children, went through this, which was up to 20,000 people." "Vlad killed over 100,000 people. If that is true he killed 20 percent of Wallacha’s population. Nearly all of those people went through horrible ways of killing that would take a long time."
CJKAllstar says2014-07-06T11:31:59.3474148-05:00
If Adolf isn't on the list because he didn't directly kill a lot of people, then Mao Ze Dong, Stalin and most of the other leaders shouldn't be on this list.
ChosenWolff says2014-07-06T11:33:15.9313419-05:00
Can you add Mariam Haile, Adolf Hitler, Ronald Reagan, Nuen Chea, and King Leopold of Belgium?
PetersSmith says2014-07-06T11:45:06.6973804-05:00
I specifically stated that I will not be adding Adolf Hitler, twice. I think for Nuon Chea Pol Pot kind of fulfills his role a little better since Pot specifically attacked his own people and was the leader, unlike Hitler who attacked others as well. I did add the other two. Ronald Reagan may have been evil and I'm presuming you're referencing the Iran-Contra Affair. Technically, since it was another country that would fulfill the category of "conqueror" and thus he can't be included. Also, he only aided the terrorists and didn't specifically start the killings nor contribute the most to them. As for CJKAllstar's comment, Adolf had another focus of conquering others. While you can argue that Stalin did as well, he killed and imprisoned after the wars, which thus qualifies him. As for Mao, Mao only conquered Nationalist China which was a contested state at the time. He killed his own people as well after the annexation, much like several others of the people listed. Thus, they can be leaders so long as they didn't specifically have the other goal of conquest. If I did include that, then there would be too many people to list. If you still disagree with me then I am unable to convince you and thus just vote "other" if you still feel like voting. Sorry.
PetersSmith says2014-07-06T12:20:31.0000454-05:00
Someone in the "others" category voted for several Union leaders during the Civil War. While I do agree that these leaders have committed atrocities, I consider the CSA a separate nation from the United States. Thus, the cultures are different, being Dixie in the south and Yankee in the north, and so the Union leaders are thus conquerors. I appreciate thesouthwillrise's vote regardless, but I ask that he pick someone who does not fall into that category.

Recent evidence shows that Caligula probably wasn't mad. He knew exactly what he was doing. In which case, he just might be one of the most evil men in history.

LittleBallofHATE: It's not really about who you hate more about who you think is actually evil. All of the candidates killed hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people. Obama did not kill millions of Americans, he may be "evil", but he is no mass murderer. You say Obama "will" cause the suffering and death of many people, emphasis on "will". There is no evidence that Obama is genocidal nor his he homicidal. Obamacare has not been created to intentionally kill others, the others on this list have intentionally killed others. If you really think that Obama is worse than all of the other candidates than I will not challenge you any further, but I will not include Obama on this list. Also, if you think Caligula is the worst man in history, then why did you choose Obama?

"Also, if you think Caligula is the worst man in history, then why did you choose Obama?" Actually, it was a tie. But I have had no direct experience of Caligula. So I chose Obama. Some may call me crazy. But I'm a student of history. What I see happening today has happened before, with terrible results. All He needs is an excuse to declare martial law, and it's game over. Chances are, he'll manufacture an excuse. It's been done before. If you don't believe me, here's the proof. In his new exposé of the National Security Agency entitled Body of Secrets, author James Bamford highlights a set of proposals on Cuba by the Joint Chiefs of Staff codenamed OPERATION NORTHWOODS. This document, titled “Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba” was provided by the JCS to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara on March 13, 1962, as the key component of Northwoods. Written in response to a request from the Chief of the Cuba Project, Col. Edward Lansdale, the Top Secret memorandum describes U.S. plans to covertly engineer various pretexts that would justify a U.S. invasion of Cuba. These proposals - part of a secret anti-Castro program known as Operation Mongoose - included staging the assassinations of Cubans living in the United States, developing a fake “Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington,” including “sink[ing] a boatload of Cuban refugees (real or simulated),” faking a Cuban airforce attack on a civilian jetliner, and concocting a “Remember the Maine” incident by blowing up a U.S. ship in Cuban waters and then blaming the incident on Cuban sabotage. Bamford himself writes that Operation Northwoods “may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government.”

LittleBallofHATE: That plan may have been corrupt, but it's not necessarily evil. Cuba was not on the best of terms with the United States at that time, especially since Cuba was harboring a large amount of nuclear missiles that could be used to kill millions in the United States. Regardless, if you noticed I did not include terrorists such as Osama Bin Laden. I truly do not understand your reasoning if you believe Obama will kill millions in a strange act of initiating martial law. Invading Cuba has nothing to do with Obama and that time is over. You say that he'll manufacture an excuse, just like in Operation Northwoods. However, from what I read this Operation never took effect because of the escalation of the Cuban Missile Crisis, which, according to the article on Operation Northwood, was an actual threat. Also, we did not decalre martial law because of Operation Northwood nor because of the Cuban Missile Crisis. We did not kill our own Cuban population because of Operation Northwood and Obama did not as well. However, it appears that you are fixed on your decision and I will no longer question you.

Can you put Jesus/god as a vote? Plzz “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” ― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Reece: I mentioned no biblical characters in the others category, sorry.

Your ignorance on the subject is appalling.

LittleBallofHATE: If you looked at the last comment and the description in the "others" tab you would realize that I said no biblical characters. Please be more aware next time. Thank you for your suggestion anyway.

"LittleBallofHATE: If you looked at the last comment and the description in the "others" tab you would realize that I said no biblical characters. Please be more aware next time. Thank you for your suggestion anyway." Didn't you see the quotes? I was quoting and replying to someone else. Pay attention.

LittleBallofHATE: Whoops, really sorry about that. I guess that makes me a hypocrite, let's hope I don't make a mistake like that again.

LOL! No blood no foul, I always say.

Wylted: I would include Christopher Columbus, but I think Tomas de Torquemada fulfills his "genocidal" role more adequately. Thank you for your suggestion.

The fact is that there is no real way to name a "most evil" person in history. Many, MANY people would commit the same atrocities as these leaders if given the means. If I were to choose a most evil person, it would likely be a serial killer. I am not sure who though.
