Or from the well-ordering principle: if you consider the set of numbers that correspond to the goodness (potential for redemption? not-Hitler-ness?) of a person, there must be a least element corresponding to the worst person. And there is no worst person than the worst person.
Of course, this is assuming that there’s a well-defined scale to measure this. If not, “there’s always a worse person” is essentially meaningless anyway. And in that case, it may be subjective; in any case, it’s certainly not true.

I’m very much overthinking this.
