We’ve covered the young presidents of USA already, but let’s broaden the scope now and take a rare glimpse at the leaders from around the world before they became the almighty God-like figures.

It’s utterly strange to see these people, who shaped the world we live in now, as simple teenagers with all the innocence in the world and, in most cases, cluelessness about what the future is holding for them.

If his father had not cruelly abused him as a child, maybe he would have become the poet he was trying to be, instead of a mass murderer. And Hitler could have become a painter. Raising kids the wrong way boomerangs back a million times.

He killed about 900 000 people confirmed with another 2 million as a consequence of his decissions, huge number but Idk wtf are you getting those other figures? McCarthy's broshures from the 1950s? It is a sad truth tens of millions of people died during his reign but Germans killed most of them and huge part died in the Civil war.

My 87 year-old mother-in-law worked for the Batista gov't back in Cuba in the '50's. She and husband had to flee for their lives coming through Canada first before becoming a citizen of the USA. She has avowed never to return to her homeland b/c of Castro and his policies and my heart hurts for her when she speaks of the old days. Gave me tons of perspective.
