Err... In Poland alone, Generalplan Ost said by 1952 only 3 to 4 million Poles were supposed to be LEFT ALIVE in Poland, and by 1960 or so Poland was supposed to be fully "cleansed" of ethnic Poles. In Lithuania, according to Himmler, almost everyone had to be deported to Siberia. Etc.

So, yeah, I dare say that Hitler was worse.

Granted, it's like having to decide which of two turds is worse, but I dare say that Hitler still managed to pull ahead and take the medal for being the worst turd.

Trying to determine which awful genocidal dictator was worse seems a little like trying to decide whether you'd rather drown or burn to death.

I recall reading about some primitive people whose language for counting is very limited. Above a certain number, it's just "many." Maybe we should adopt a similar rule for horrible dictators.
