Che Guevara. Huge imperialist clown, not to mention egotistical psychopath. Even Fidel had to have him put down.

Just beats out Julian Assange, another megalomaniac.

Depends on how you would like the world to be today. Most sane people prefer that to the alternative.

how come? if you refer to winston's part in WWII, it wasn't all that important as most brits like to think to give themselves a sense of self-entitlement.

the soviets were the one who virtually won the war at the end. curiously enough, if not for communist russia there would be little of the western civilization as we now know it

Christopher Columbus. The fact that he effectively started the atlantic slave trade is conveniently forgotten.
