Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini or Hussein? Those are the options in a rather hilarious poll at the Melbourne Victory Forum at the moment. From the comments:
Hitler would organise an invasion of the neighbours and have them exterminated or incarcerated in labour camps. Taking over the nighbours place would result in more “lebensraum” for Adolf and his roomies.
Stalin would liquidate anyone arriving at the house who had previously been at the neighbour’s on suspicion of spying, sending them to the gulag.
Mussolini would send his cronies to the neightbour’s house to invade it, only to see them humiliate him by surrendering after 5 minutes.
Hussein would, upon invasion, declare that the enemy was killing themselves at the front gate, when in fact they were making themselves at home in the lounge.
While we’re on the subject, those of you who are Stalin experts can shed some light on the following question: did Stalin create a personality cult surrounding himself, or was he modest and self-effacing, as claimed by soilride in a recent comment on this blog?
