Genghis Khan was almost a thousand years ago, you would think that by the 20th century people would be civilized enough to not murder millions of people, which is why he is considered the most hated person to have lived.
its really is a culture thing though. i personally think its wrong how the western world treats death as something wrong or unnatural when it is probably THE MOST NATURAL thing.
but thats not what this thread is all about.
and its also not about comparing stories of genocides and ranking them. what is "being responsible" and what not? for example, there is noone really singlehandedly responsible for all the deaths in WWI. because every country was so fucking eager to participate in this shitfest its not even funny.
every major ruler (especially before 1800 or so) had some sort of blood on his hands and most of them will be remembered for that. although the emotional aspect gets lost over the years.
i totally agree that its natural, i may even go as far to say that murder itself is natural. i still think its sad to lose people, which i admit dosent make logical sense but sometimes sense isnt totally about logic its also about love.
to the other guy who said about hitler being most hated and ghengis being thousand years ago. what about stalin? who killed way more people than hitler, and mao who killed millions of chinese, both more than hitler.
Its not a popular view but i think hitler gets a bad name because he was on the losing side, and the victors write history. He was a bad man, but i dont blame him personally. but thats a whole different thread. and they say that eventually every thread on the internet will mention hitler and thats when it should die.
