They acted stupidly and without sufficiently careful consideration, not evilly (and even then, people have done far dumber things then misinterpret extraordinarily complicated financial instrument's riskiness). As such they don't fall anywhere near a "worst people" list.

Someone posted the list of the top murderers, by their own hands, and I was faintly amused that the UK has spots right at the top! Harold Shipman has got to be one of the worst murderers ever.

I'm not doing the whole 'evil' thing because it's frankly the same list everyone else posts unless you put some unfunny public figure in.

I don't think the Goldman Sachs thing was a mistake, nor the dot com bust, or any other financial fiascos. Just a few greedy people who want more and a government who either can't or won't regulate them.

Spectators know exactly what they're doing and don't care. Look at oil.

Am I the only one who's surprised middleschoolers know who Charles Manson is?

Tbh, I'm not that surprised. At least back when I was in middle school, sadistic serial murderers and stuff like that was "cool." Not in the sense that we all wanted to go torture and kill people but they tended to be popular subjects for reports and such. I can't tell you how many current events about the Beltway Sniper were presented.


In hindsight, that may explain some things...

My list comes from a combination of genocide and influence, along with my belief that in the future people won't remember them for their horrible deeds. This is why Hitler, Stalin, and bin Laden did not make my list, I do not believe history will be kind to them.

Timothy McVeigh
Jim Jones
Saddam Hussein
Mao Zedong
Fidel Castro


They didn't kill anyone, so here are my dishonorable mentions:
Barney Frank
George Soros


Why Barney Frank? Given my limited idea of American Politics, I would say he seemed to be a decent guy.

I blame him for the policy behind the housing market collapse and the subsequent recession.

Well now mass murderers aren't really "cool" in any of the schools I've been to (in middle school atm) and i would say that about half the kids in my grade would not recognize the name Charles Manson, or even the Beltway Sniper.

Also our class was discussing To Kill a Mocking Bird and somehow we got into mass murderers, and our teacher brought up Timothy Mcveigh. I think three people (including myself) out of our small class of fifteen knew his name, and I was the only person who could say what he did.

The reason why all the middleschoolers here do know who these people are simple shows what kind of people post on these forums.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

I agree with him, last time I said "Jesus, take the wheel" you drove me into the 3rd story of a police station and then OD'd.

Not sure about the whole list, but Stalin>Hitler. They were both horrible and did horrible things, but Stalin did more horrible stuff to his own country.

Yes, but Hitler was evil, while Stalin was just ruthless.

Just going off of looks, Stalin actually does look like a father figure, while Hitler looks evil and menacing and a trifle like a child molester.

Looks have a lot to do with how they wanted to be shown. Stalin wanted to look like a kind leader, while Hitler wanted people to know he was in charge and didnt really care what he had to do.
