As i have already stated to you, you cant use atheism for anything. The people you have listed here used different sets of principles to commit their atrocities, Stalin used communism and Hitler used fascism. The fact that they might have been atheists is irrelevant, much like they both had mustaches, are we to presume mustaches are the source of all evil? Atheism doesnt have a set of principles or guidelines so its impossible to use it to justify anything, no two atheists are alike. Religion is quite the opposite however, it has a very clear set of guidelines and principles many of which have been used as a reason to commit atrocities.Oh there are undoubtedly people who use religion to commit atrocities just like mao used atheism as a war cry to rally his troops.
Corrupt despots/psycho's like hitler*,stalin,mao are especially capable of doing this,you wont find the average man on the street behaving like this normally be they atheist or religious.
