How were the philosophies & regimes of Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan & Adolf Hitler
They were all influenced by evil, and had a desire to rule the world and conquer. They were probably inhabited by the same demon.
Like how the Garden of Eden, Earth's corners, a fish with a stomach big enough to hold a human for several days without dissolving him, and talking animals totally also exist, right? And Hell somehow burns you when the soul has no nerve endings?
Trick question: They weren't. Attila the Hun was your bog-standard stereotypical warlord who wanted to lead a great campaign and forge a mighty empire, Genghis Khan was a genius warlord who actually did lead a great campaign and forge a mighty empire (and pioneered concepts like religious freedom and multiculturalism within his empire), and Adolf Hitler was a bumbling moron with racist ideals (who had the incredible talent of being able to surround himself with like-minded people who weren't absolutely inept at everything) and wanted to "cleanse" the world from "undesirables."
Adolf Hitler cannot be compared to the two warlords because he lived and ruled after the Industrial Revolution.
Attila the Hun and Ghenkis Khan were motivated by expansionism and self- or tribe-preservation, while they ruled through power, respect and tribe-influnece.
Hitler was motivated by nationalism, anti-liberalism and national/racial preservation, while he ruled through propaganda, populism and political influence.
It's extremely hard to compare something before the industrial revolution and something after. If I'd bring an example, it's like comparing a carriage to a car, or comparing a king's court to a political cabinet.
(1) They were ruthless. They weren't afraid of using whatever means was necessary to conquer other civilizations & cultures.
(2) They were bloodthirsty. They used force to get what they wanted. They weren't above decimating entire ethnic groups, civilizations, & cultures. Attila wiped out the Burgundians. Genghis Khan exterminated the Tatars & Hitler all but exterminated European Jews.
(3) They wanted world domination. Genghis Khan was the only one whose empire lasted for centuries. Attila & Hitler had short-lived empires.
(4) They were egotistical. They believed that they were destined to do great things.
(5) They dealt harshly w/people who opposed &/or were deemed threats to them.
(6) They instituted their version of a new order.
(7) People dreaded, feared & hated them.
(8) They left less than a positive historical legacy.
(9) They believed that their people were superior & others were inferior.

I mean, Good and Bad are relative. So, when American soldiers kill Iraqi civilians, that's OK. When Bin Laden destroys WT Centre, that's bad? I mean, how do you define a universal moral principle?

Why did Adolf Hitler genocide the Jews, when he himself was half Jewish? Someone told me Hitler...was half Jewish. That doesn't make sense!
