Vladimir Ilych Ulyanov
Founder of Communism in Russia. Remebered in the West mostly through the propagana of Stalin and later dictators, and as being not quite as bad as Stalin. Instigated the Red Terror (mass executions and deportations of suspected Whites during the Civil War, often by quota), and expanded the Tsarist political prison camp system into the GULAG which served Stalin so well. Made selling things an imprisonable offence (the crime of "speculation"), as well as expanding the definitions of punishable "political crimes", which often had worse punishment than real crimes. Laid the foundations for Stalin's work. Hero worshipped by young Western socialists who, if they had actually read anything that he wrote, would realise that he was an utterly barking moonbat.
