I doubt it. 1.4 billions of Chinese know who is Mao, and then more. As for Pol Pot many people know who he is. All the people who I know I’m france will be able to tell you exactly who is Mao and will be able to spell his first name correctly.
I’d say at least 80% of the globe will be able to tell who is Mao and at least 50% Pol Pot.
But back to the subject I fail to see any common point about how those guys came to power.

Yes, a country with lax gun control laws has low crime rates.

They are way tighter than the USAs, but the USAs crime rate is far higher, I wonder why?


The UK has a far lower murder rate than the USA, very few guns about here?

1. We are talking about Switzerland, not UK. Switzerland has pretty high gun ownership, about 5x as high as UK.

2. Look up crime rates by ethnicity. European countries are a LOT less diverse than the U.S... Maybe diversity isn't a strength?

You are just rambling about things that aren't even relevant to the topic.
Ha, ha, ha, just following your line of argument.

I really struggle to understand what you say.
Hitler came to power democratically. He was greatly helped by armed militias which destabilized the German democracy. Once he arrived to power he pushed forward laws which reduced gun control or abrogated previous anti gun laws. Hitler was not afraid of German citizens, it is quite the opposite, he was extremely popular. He was quite happy with his population being largely armed.
Stalin went in power by stealing Lennin’s heritage. That was unfortunate for the Russians. . Not that Lennin was exactly a someone you would like as a friend, but Stallin was just psychotic. When Stall in went in power The dictature was already developed. If you want to discuss the role of arm control or rather lack of arm control in the bolchevik revolution we can proceed.
Mao went in power after a civile war. Arguably the issue during civil wars is not the lack of arms but the abundance of them. And last but not least, if you consider the people to be the good guys and the government to be the bad guys, then in the Chinese revolution, the good guys won since they kicked the but of the bad guys (legal government with the remaining of its army) to exile itself to Taiwan.
