    They're my two most favourite historical figures, especially the former. Too much power is unnerving for anyone.

    Both Hitler and Stalin had different methods of control and structural infrastructure in their governing states......by assimilating both together under the umbrella term dictatorship you are promoting generalisations..............

    Accurate scholarship can
    Unearth the whole offence,
    Find what occurred at Linz,
    What huge imago made
    A psychoparhic god.
    I and the public know
    What all schoolchildren learn:
    Those to whom evil is done
    Do evil in return.

    -W H Auden on Hitler.
    We don't know though. Read any biography of any human monster and every "explanation" is hypothetical. Millions of other people have apparently similar personalities and experiences and behave differently. Perhaps because they never get the chance to behave like that. Alan Bullock wrote a twin biography comparing hitler and Stalin which is worth reading.
