    Well, with the exception of Marx and the mystery "NSPG", they were all authoritarian dictators.

    Well, more'n one poster suggested using a nuke to seal the spill. I can't recall anyone suggesting that the CIA "take out" the president. Is it even legal to write such things?

    I think I deserve a pos rep just for being a nice person, Modbert. When you make me work for it, it damages my self-esteem.

    Apparently Lenin does not qualify as a dictator.

    WikiAnswers - How was Lenin a dictator

    Che Guevara never reigned supreme in any nation, so he does not seem to qualify either.

    Karl Marx was an influential philosopher and social activist, but again, never reigned supreme in any nation. I don't see how he'd even begin to qualify as a dictator.

    The list could be one of prominent communist philosophers, except then I don't think Pol Pot or Stalin belong on it...and who knows if the mysterious NSPG would fit, either.
