    Stalin and Mao were not exactly adhering to the values of Marxism, so it's not very fair to label them as such.

    We should just play it safe and say that totalitarianism is reigning king in this category.

    Stalin maybe not, but mao actually tried to experiment with communism and build a socialist utopia in his country. China was as communist as a country can be.

    Mao Ze Dong may have been power hungry dictator and killed millions of his own people, but he wrenched a nation spinning out of control back to a state of order and stability, to which it then continued to re-develop back into a global superpower.

    Chinese history is filled with blood and murder and sacrifice of tens of thousands.

    Qin Shi Huang Di, the first Emperor, dictator, tyrant, draconian in his method and remorseless in his actions. Yet one of the greatest, perhaps the greatest Emperor in all of Chinese history.

    You do not understand, our concept of ?? or "Heaven and Earth"

    Furthermore you do not take into account the transient cycle of ?? [ying yang] philosophy and its intrinsic relation to how we view our historical development. All Dynasties rise and fall, birth and death is natural as breathing air. "People's Republic of China" is like the modern Dynasty of the 21st century. One day it dies, and one day something else emerges. That is all. Very simple.

    In fairness, Mao and Stalin had more to work with. Hitler should win on style points alone.

    I think I remember hearing "If you want to live, don't be Chinese."

    What about smallpox? While the Jews and Gypsies are still around, the Aztecs are not.

    Such a bizarre Western perception.

    The way we view our society/nation is like a very old man... has seen the vigors of youth and the wisdom of old. Has seen joy and sorrow, the greatest of triumphs and the lowest failures. We do not pretend to always be successful or powerful, only that everything is a finite, nothing lasts forever, and the higher one rises, the harder they fall, eventually ALL will fall.

    If we're talking quality, add like to add Vlad the Impalar. He got pretty imaginative, even when we wasn't killing people. A group of diplomats went to see see him, but refused to remove their headwear in his presence for religious reasons. He decided to help them out by having their turbans nailed to their heads.

    Agreed. One could argue that there has never been a truely communist state.
