    Hitler or Stalin?

    This might not be exactly "philosophy" but it is still a discussion over a topic so w/e.

    A lot of people here Hitler, and they think: OMG, REALLY BAD MAN!!! But people typically do not think of Stalin as such a bad guy. Yeah, he was kinda strict, but hell, he didnt murder 6 million jews.

    But he did murder 40 million Russians. (shoked_)

    My brother had to read a biography on Stalin that brought out some very little known facts. Stalin was so much worse than Hitler. All russians living under him were so afraid of him, that they did not ever challenge him, and he went unquestioned. People were so afraid of him, when he did die, no one checked on him for 2 days in fear of angering him.

    This is just a little thing I thought I would bring up just for the fun of it. I guess discuss why Stalin's crimes are so unknowed, and discuss your opinion on it.

    Woot, 900 posts.

    Was Stalin a Russian leader then during WW2 or something? And yeah that does seem harsh, but was Stalin trying to wipe out an entire race of germans? No so i still don't like hitler as he intended to wipe out Jews from the face of the earth and nearly succeded

    The only reason Stalin's genocide isnt as well known as Hitler's is because it wasnt directed at a particular breed, religion, or kind of people. He just killed his own people, like many dictators had the habit of doing.

    Yeah, I remember seeing a biography in TV, about Stalin, and he was very, evil. I didn't watch the whole thing but he was just as bad as hitler.

    Also people have a tenancy to lean towards certain stories. Maybe Hitlers legacy happened at the right time and in the right way. He just became more famous. Like the titanic. There have been other ships similar to the Titanic but something about the titanic attracted an audience to the film and the stories dug up afterward.
