There has never been a state in human history more depraved and evil than the USSR.

Oh come on. I get what you're trying to communicate here, but come on. It wasn't even the most depraved and evil Marxist-Leninist state.

The one thing that I will say about the USSR is that itís imperialism makes it a unique force of evil. For example, Nazi Germany may have have been more evil with what it did within its borders, but itís carnage was intended to be limited to the confines of Europe. The USSR had clear intentions to export its ideology and practices to every corner of the globe.

maybe there were countries with more evil per capita, but the USSR was a special case in just how much evil it produced and exported around the world

Russia doesn't LARP as the Soviet Union for nothing. As a Republic within it, they contributed to a state which had impacts both great and terrible, as opposed to having a government that leans into the terrible but sometimes slips into the pathetic.

I'm not even sure what the argument would be for contemporary Russia being worse? That attacking one small country is worse than dominating half of Europe? That Putin periodically having a political dissident thrown off the top of a parking garage is worse than millions of political dissidents in slave labor camps? The USSR was basically just all the bad things about Putin's Russia on steroids.

The USSR was obviously worse both for the people who lived in it and for the rest of the world given they were way more powerful

What do you think a Chiang Kai-Shek -run China would have looked like? Imagine the people who carried out Taiwan's White Terror had the run of the whole of China.
