Top 10 Most Evil People

Belladonna has a project for World History.  She has to pick her Top Ten most evil people in history.  This is her list.
  • Justin Beiber
  • Saddam Hussein
  • Joseph Mengele
  • Osama bin Laden
  • Mao Zedong
  • Kony
  • Himmler
  • Pol Pot
  • Hitler
  • Stalin
 I don't know that I consider Kony and Himmler to be more evil than Mao Zedong but once evil exceeds a certain scale it becomes hard to screw it into focus.

She is putting together little verbal sketches of each stinker.

I think this is a worthy task.  Kids need perspective regarding the evil that humans are capable of.

One other thing that gives me hope is that Belladonna is learning that much evil occurs when history and learning is discarded because it is inconvenient.

As bad as Washington D.C. is, they have a ways to go before they can crack the top nine.
