You may be one of the most bloodthirsty dictators in all of human history with a death tool almost twice that of Hitler's, but in the end the statue of your greatness lies abandoned in a field. Here the statue of you friend and rival can judge you for how much you perverted an ideology that was meant to help the people, but, in the end only added to their suffering.
Ricky added this in the comment section. It's a quote by Shelly that is so appropriate for this image. I can't believe I didn't think of it at the time.
And on the pedestal these words appear: / "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: / Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" / Nothing beside remains. Round the decay / Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare / The lone and level sands stretch far away. - Percy Bysshe Shelley
