Secondly, we have Joseph Stalin. Stalin was the dictator of the Soviet Union from 1922-1953 and like most dictators, was bad to the bone. During his childhood, he contracted smallpox, a contagious disease spread by viruses that usually leaves abiding marks. He was left with permanent scars and his left arm was slightly deformed. Growing up, Stalin was a bank robber, an agitator which is a person that urges others to rebel, and an assassin. Then, In 1912, an exiled leader named Lenin appointed Stalin to serve on the first Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party made that was made up of revolutionists and in 1917 the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia in a gargantuan revolt. At last, Joseph Stalin began his rise to power. One by one, he outmaneuvered his rivals after Lenin died and in 1922, gained control of the mighty Soviet Union.
Stalin ruled the Soviets with an iron fist. Anyone who displeased him, voted against him, or just make negative moves against him would be killed. Furthermore, he liked people who worked and followed his orders instead of people who loved him and treated him like a god! (Those people were also killed. Not a good idea!) Like all leaders, he wanted his country to expand and become a powerful and industrial nation. However, he did this by forcing hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of people into brutal slave labor, and worked them to death. One time, Stalin kissed a small girl in public and treated her family well, giving them the impression that he liked her, only to kill her parents after.
Approaching World War II, Joseph Stalin lifted the Soviet Union up into the Nuclear Age, creating nuclear weapons. Furthermore, he allied with the Germans, who were under the control of the infamous Hitler at that time. Stalin made a non-aggression pact with Hitler that ensured peace between the two nations, ignoring the warnings from other countries and his own advisors! Consequently, the Soviet Union wasn’t ready when the Germans broke the pact and invaded their country. They struck deep into the heart of the land, reaching the capital city Moscow. Nevertheless, fighting back with a colossal counter attack, the Soviets drove the intruders out of their homeland, narrowly escaping being conquered. Stalin then moved to the Allied side, which eventually emerged victorious. Similarly, a couple years later, he joined forces with North Korea, and helped them invade. However, the U.S sided with the South, and together, they drove the invaders out in the Korean War. Towards the end of this conflict, Stalin died of a stroke, thus ending his time on Earth.
Overall, Joseph Stalin killed 20 to 60 million people, many of them worked to death. Also, he wished to make his country strong enough to rival the U.S! If the Soviet Union was indeed stronger, he would want to fight a war. Cruel and heartless, Joseph Stalin has without a doubt, earned his place as one of the most evil people that ever walked the earth.
