Ever stop to listen to the voices of the most powerful people in the 20th century? Here are a few:>Lenin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzf3FRSbEUk
Here he sounds like a lawyer delivering a closing argument, verbose, purposeful, language, controlled, almost patronizing, tone. Kind of annoying after a while but it's clear that Lenin is a guy with a lot to say and he's just trying to get through it.>Stalin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ay5GzJreY40
Stalin sounds like a regular Georgian country dude, and Georgians sound like Italian Russians. He sounds like a guy that would be selling tickets out of a stand. Not a great voice but I can respect the hustle.>Mussolini https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpn9iPLbNDc
Mussolini sounds like an actor delivering lines in a play. This is unsurprising given that his entire character was modeled off of a popular Italian movie star in the 1910s. Anyway, it's strongly projected but still totally controlled, again like an actor.>Hitler https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ3N_2r6R-o
Hitler's speech to Krupp Factory employees could be played over footage of Germany's declaration of war on the USA and I'd believe it. Hitler takes every opportunity to go unhinged for emphasis, to the point where he's screaming at the audience at times. Whether or not it's an act, he sounds like a schizo, totally dedicated to whatever he's yelling about.>Mao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLeympkNurk
What to say about him, he sounds pretty timid and soft-spoken, maybe because he was a librarian? Maybe because he has such a strong accent and it's clear that he's working through it? Despite the voice, the guy turned out to be a pretty smart military and political leader, so don't judge a book by its cover as they say.<What about you?
