    It is fair to say, though, that he did the greatest damage to the world in the 2nd half of the 20th century simply by distorting the end of the oil shock as a vindication of trickle-down economics.

    In terms of pure assholitude, though - Pol Pot, Noriega, Brehznev, Mao, Idi Amin and Milosevic would like a word with you.

    •  yes, of course there were leaders who killed more (2+ / 0-)

      people - but except Stalin none of these folks, including Hitler, did more damage to our shared humanity. In fact in many cases you could argue that they did less in the sense that their atrocities galvanized renewed public interest in goodness, whereas Reagan's spirit is like a cancer of destruction destroying community and humanity across the globe.

      Ronald Reagan is the worst president we've ever had and a world-historical monster of the first order.
