Why did Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Murder so many ?
« on: December 21, 2015, 05:57:36 PM »
A simple answer would be - they were Sociopaths.

Just as "What was the cause of America's Civil War" ? Simple answer: Slavery.

The simple answer, like a good lie, will always have some truth to it - enough to disguise the reality.

I believe real answer to all these questions is POWER.

Lincoln and the North wanted to control the South, and resolved do so at any cost. He eliminated the Southern Middle Class. All that remained was a ragtag bunch of former Slaves, and "White Trash".

Hitler, Mao, and Stalin also eliminated people they felt would be an obstacle to their rule. The Jews, the Ukranians, were people of some influence. Not dirt poor. Likely to be problematic in the long run.

As for Mao - I don't know. I suspect he did not kill many of the very poor, but like Hitler and Stalin, murdered more "Middle Class" than dirt poor.

Bring this to the Present Day. Who are Obama and George Soros' Greatest Enemies. Not the dirt poor. Once again, it is the Middle Class, who, at least temporarily, actually possess a strength that could oppose them.

Actually the first answer was more correct. They were sociopaths WHO CRAVE POWER and control.
There is an element of ruthlessness in each of them, each comes from a background/culture which encourages such brutal measures  IE: The best way to cow and subjegate people is to be unmercifully cruel.

I think there is a world of difference between Lincoln and the others. He wasn;t a sociopath and he really didn't crave power. Stanton on the other hand..... :glare:

Doesn't this belong in the History forum?

Agreed. There are powerful people who still have empathy. But they don't kill people. Sociopaths don't have the capacity for empathy. They have mental illness, hence "sociopathic personality disorder" is considered a serious mental disorder in the psychiatric world. Ted Bundy shared the same illness. No empathy for anyone, and craved a disturbing power over the people he killed. Power on a one-on-one basis, unlike someone such as Hitler who wanted power over the masses, but power all the same.
One more liberal President in 2016 will mean the irreversible, eventual and total demise of our democracy. The rise and fall of democracy IS past the "apathy stage" at this moment. If this  momentum continues on its present path, restoration of democracy will require the least desired of actions.

This is an enormously important topic.

We need to understand it, and STOP IT.

There will ALWAYS be Evil People.

If Evil People are the SOLE CAUSE, evil will continue forever,
