join us today as we ask where did their parents go wrong? Today’s video was requested by Lisel M if

section below. Number 6 Ted Bundy
Ted Bundy is one of the most notorious serial killers in the history of the United States. He murdered at least 30 people, kept gruesome
trophies of his victims and performed necrophilia on their bodies. Indications of the man he’d become may have
been present ever since he was 3 years old. That’s when his aunt woke up from a nap
to find herself surrounded by knives from the kitchen and Bundy standing by the bed,
smiling. Bundy never knew his father and resented his
mother for not talking about him. There’s even a theory that his real father
was actually his violent and abusive grandfather, Samuel. He expressed hatred towards a number of races
and would beat his wife, his daughters and the family dog. Bundy’s early years, while he was living
with his grandparents, were undoubtedly confusing. To manage the stigma of being born out of
wedlock, he was told that his mother was his older sister and that his grandparents were
his biological mother and father. By the time he was a teenager, Bundy couldn’t
understand interpersonal relationships. He developed a fascination for sexual violence
and dead or maimed bodies. It wasn’t long before he put his deranged
fantasies into practice. Before we move on, answer this question. In 1969, in Los Angeles, California, a series
of brutal murders were committed by a group known as…
a. The Manson Family
b. The Bloody Benders
c. The Kelly Family
d. The Night Stalkers
Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned to find out the
right answer. Number 5 Alexander Pichushkin
It may seem peculiar, but Alexander Pichushkin’s rise as a serial killer might have been avoided
by his parents paying more attention to him on the playground. When he was just a child, Pichushkin was struck
in the forehead by a swing. Up until that point, he’d been a sociable
child but he became hostile and impulsive. Experts argue that this was because of damage
to his frontal cortex. Pichushkin became prolific in chess and would
often play in Moscow’s Bitsa Park. It was a passion instilled and encouraged
in him by his grandfather. Pichushkin found that by dominating on the
chessboard he could channel his aggression. When his grandfather died, Pichushkin was
deeply affected and began drinking vodka in large quantities. Soon, his violent impulses went beyond his
control and he started killing in 1992. Most of his victims were elderly homeless
men, whom he lured with the promise of vodka. From behind, he would strike them in the back
of the head with a hammer. In what became his signature move, he would
then stick a vodka bottle in the gaping wound. Many of the killings were committed in Bitsa
Park. He was convicted for 49 murders, committed
between 1992 to 2006. Pichushkin claimed he actually had a death
toll of 60 and that he’d been going for 64 victims, the total number of squares on
a chessboard. Number 4 Pablo Escobar
Pablo Escobar is known in history by many names, including “The Boss”, “The Lord”
or “Sir Pablo”, each indicative of the prestige he achieved in the criminal world. His distribution operation dominated cocaine
trade into the US in the 1980s and earned him billions of dollars. The “King of Cocaine” remains the wealthiest
criminal in history, a title that represented the culmination of a life-long ambition. Born to a farmer and an elementary school
teacher, Escobar was the third of seven children. His parents did little to tame his criminal
pursuits, which began at an early age. It’s been suggested that his mother was
actually one of his greatest supporters, from his rise to prominence to the height of his
power. As a teen, he stole gravestones, sanded them
down and resold them to local smugglers. He’d run petty street scams, steal cars
and sell fake lottery tickets or contraband cigarettes. Young Pablo’s dream was to have 1 million
pesos in the bank by the time he turned 22. By the time he was 26, Escobar reportedly
fulfilled that ambition a hundred times over. In 1975, he started his own cocaine distribution
business which ultimately grew to monopolize the trade. Throughout his criminal career, Escobar ordered
the killings of thousands, including journalists, police officers and government officials. He planned the bombing of an aircraft, killing
107 people, in an attempt to eliminate a single presidential candidate. His unquenchable taste for power led to his
death and left the world with a polarizing figure that many career criminals see as an
inspiration. Number 3 Kim Jong-un
Kim Jong Un is far from a victim of circumstance, but it’s hard to imagine his life turning
out differently, when considering his ancestry. His grandfather, Kim Il-sung, was the founder
and first leader of North Korea as well as the creator of the country’s central philosophy
of Juche, or self-reliance. Upon his death, the mantle was passed to his
son, Kim Jong-il. This decision was criticized by some as an
example of establishing a dynasty, which is against the principles of socialism. Many of those who spoke out against the succession
were executed. Kim Jong-un carried on in his father’s footsteps
as Supreme Leader and inherited his other titles as well. It’s a position he might’ve been groomed
for from a young age. That being said, not much is known about his
early upbringing. In fact, even his exact birth date remains
unknown. It’s suspected that he studied in Switzerland
under an assumed identity, chaperoned by a bodyguard, who posed as an older student. In the 2000s, he obtained a military degree
and a physics degree from universities in North Korea. According to various reports, once he became
the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un’s regime followed the same path as that of his
predecessors’. It’s one marked by egregious human rights
violations, summary executions and tormenting labor camps. Number 2 Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler was the fourth of six children, born in 1889 to Klara Polzl and Alois Hitler. Three of his full siblings had died in infancy
and he lived in the same household with step-siblings from his father’s previous marriage. His mother was described as loving and kind,
but Alois had little interest or understanding for the children. He would beat young Adolf, despite his mother’s
efforts to protect him. When he was 8, Hitler sang in the church choir
and wanted to become a priest. A major shift in his behavior came in 1900,
after the death of his younger brother, Edmund. He became morose and detached and would often
fight with his father and teachers. Hitler wanted to become an artist, a desire
that his father willfully ignored, choosing a different path for his education. Then, Alois died in 1903 and Klara succumbed
to breast cancer in 1907. Alone and penniless, Hitler lived in Vienna’s
homeless shelters and earned money by selling watercolor works of the city’s sites. As he later stated in his manifesto, Mein
Kampf, it was in Vienna that Hitler first started to develop anti-Semitic feelings. By the end of World War I, these feelings
were exacerbated, and by the end of World War II, Hitler had become the face of evil
all-over the world. So, what group was responsible for a series
of gruesome murders in 1969? The right answer was a, the Manson Family. The name was given to a desert cult of about
100 followers, led by Charles Manson, in 1960s California. The members frequently used hallucinogenic
drugs and saw Manson as a prophet, believing his predictions of an apocalyptic race war. Three of Manson’s followers were responsible
for the brutal Tate-LaBianca murders of 1969 while the “family” as a whole was involved
in other killings, assaults, thefts and petty crimes. Number 1 Mao Zedong
As a child, Mao Zedong was strictly disciplined by his father, who would beat him and his
siblings. Mao would slowly start to develop a rebellious
side, inspired by the nationalistic drive of Napoleon Bonaparte or George Washington. At age 13, his father arranged a marriage
for him with a 17-year-old girl, as means of uniting their two land-owning families. Mao refused to accept her as his wife and
moved away. At age 18, he severed his queue, a ponytail
that indicated his allegiance to the Emperor. Even though eventually his father cut off
his allowance, Mao discovered socialism and developed into a rebellious intellectual. He wrote critical essays and took part in
protests, which showed glimpses of the man he would become. Mao Zedong would eventually rule as Chairman
of the Communist Party of China from its inception, in 1946, until his death in 1976. During this time, Mao’s “Great Leap Forward”
campaign saw the country’s transition from an agriculture-based economy to an industrial
one. The move would also contribute to the deadliest
famine in recorded history, with an estimated loss of life of 20 to 45 million people. Millions of others perished in labor camps
or mass executions. In the end, the autocratic and totalitarian
regime much reflected Mao’s own upbringing. Thanks for watching! If you could go back in time and stop ONE
of history’s most evil figures, WHO would you choose and why? Let us know in the comments section below!

  1. I love your videos but parents are not to blame for killers to become killers……poor or no parenting may establish complications in people but does not guarantee evil in people…….but it can do I agree. Yet another great video

  3. I thought that picture of Ted Bundy at the beginning looked like Robert Downey Jr., lol… Anyone else see the resemblance or am I the only one? Lmao 😂😂 😂

  4. it is pretty idiotic to mix serial killers with revolutionists and people who wanted to change the world order or rule the world…

  5. Curious to why US leaders aren't on this list? Thomas Jefferson? He enslaved many, promoted slavery, mass migrated native Americans…

  6. Kim Jonge un is a vile evil little fat bastard. His people should kill him. I would rather be dead than live there!!!! Are we going to let trump do that to us!? And Hitler? He's the worst monster in the world ‼️ Here we have trump who wants to be just like him‼️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 open your eyes people. We've got to get him out of the white house. NOW.Biden, Sanders, Anyone ‼️💙💙🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. I hope those stupid statues of the dictators in a North Korea get knocked down someday and all of the citizens dance and cheer while it is happening.

  8. Stalin mudered millions in Russia…., Pol Pot murdered millions in Cambodia…., Videla, the Brittish in Australia…., the Dutch in South-Africa, Indonesia, Surinam…., the Yapanese for what they did in China….., Euopeans slaughtered almost all the native tribes in the USA…. etc. Etc.

  9. They never got smacked. That's what it was. This is what happends when you spoil your fucking kids and never say NO

  10. if I could go back in time and stop one of history's most evil figures, i would do my best to stop Steve Irwin somehow from going into the water that fateful day.

  11. what about churchill? if Mao is guilty for deaths in china then Churchill is guilty for worst bengali famine during WW2 which killed millions od indians.

  12. I went to school with a guy that had a motorcycle wreck and had a serious head injury. He was never the same and became very violent.

  13. It's often genetic or societal. Freud and Western religions put too much emphasis on parental influence. Sometimes yes patients are abusive but usually people aren't carbon copies either way.

  14. Hey not sure if you have done this, you should do “what if this never happened ?” Like the 9/11, the titanic, and so on.

  15. Can you please do a video on spontaneous combustion and how people simply just catch 🔥 fire.

  16. Highly recommend the Black Daliah and the Most Beautiful Suicide as potential topics if you haven’t already

  17. I don’t know. I know it’s nature vs nurture but I screwed up in life a lot too and it’s nothing of my parents fault. I didn’t do anything evil like these people but I think it’s more psychological issues as opposed to parenting
