Although I don't think Donald Trump is the most evil president today, I think he is one of the most stupid presidents today.

Putin on the other hand, combines evilness with intelligence. That is even more dangerous I guess. Or maybe not. I guess Trump is more likely to start a nuclear war because he can't control his impulses, while Putin is more likely to maintain his dominance over the Russian people, and succeed in malevolent strategies against other countries.

Merkel on the other hand, seems to be even smarter than Putin, but completely benevolent.



I am not entirely sure about the validity of this ranking, since I don't know so much about all of these presidents.

I would love to not have to lock anything. Contemporary politics is considerably more contentious than this thread had previously been.

Just saying.

The implication by putting this in THIS thread is worse than its simple existence. If you want to make partisan jabs (even ones I agree with the sentiments behind), at least put it in a thread which is not explicitly about 'the most evil people in history'. And generally try to avoid partisan jabs. They don't help except to relieve stress in private. In public, they are a negative-sum activity.

Any further contemporary politics in this thread will get this thread locked and we'll all get to find out if there's an official warning system for users. Any partisan jokes anywhere on the forum had better be at least as tightly-aimed at specific politicians or policies as this one is.

Ok, I will stop making fun of your president.

Anyhow,  I liked the word you used "negative sum activity". I am thinking that maybe such a concept could be implemented in early childhood, as an argument against immoral behavior. Stealing for example, might be regarded as a "negative sum activity", even if it makes you rich.
