- Joseph Stalin Murdered somewhere around 30 million of his fellow citizens including many of his own family. How did he come to power? From the left as a member of the Communist Party.
- Mao Tse Tung Starved somewhere between 30 million and 50 million of his fellow citizens via his Great Leap Forward. Then killed off opposition via the Cultural Revolution. How did Mao come to power? From the left as the leader of the Communist Revolution.
- Adolph Hitler Good old Adolph, what can you say? Was it 30 million? Was it 50 million? Was it more? And whence cometh ol' Ado? From the left as the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (whose English abbreviation became Nazi).
- Pol Pot Let's not forget good ol' Pol either. Although he only killed 1.7 million of his fellow citizens, he started with 4.2 million. So give him credit. How many petty leftist dictators can claim that percentage?
