People can only operate within the context they find themselves in. A 'pleb' from south London could do twice as much voluntary work for good causes than Princess Di did but we know all which will go down in encyclopaedias and which will have, at best, a brief mention in a local newpaper.

That's the trouble with seeing history through the eyes of 'Great People'.

That's why there's largely been a push from the early 90's on in historical writings towards cultural history--the history of the people, not so much analyzing via leaders and governments. Not that anyone here really cares haha.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

Pol Pot deserves a shout. Gaddafi too. I'd bet 93,000,000,000 Zimbabwian dollars on Mugabe making the list, he's made a country full of trillionaires after all.

It's on like the second or third page, and it's not like there's that much activity here anyway.

The funny thing was that he specifically said they had to be American. I mean, if they're British, or Iraqi, or Afghan, they don't go on the list, do they? [/sarcasm]

Last_to_Kn0w was being insensitive. Knee-jerk reactions are rarely the best reaction.

Friedrich Nietzsche - Nihilist philosopher who's work I love.

Sir Isaac Newton - Discovered gravity. 'nuff said. :mrgreen:

Albert Einstein - Amazing scientist and philosopher also a bit of historical irony; he hated his own creation.

Marie Curie - Work-aholic died as a result of her work. Also won multiple nobel prizes :thumbsup:


Josef Mengele - Angel of death. Interesting life; one of the Nazi Doctors in WWII. Contributed to the advancement of medicine and was part of the reason that medical ethics were revolutionized.

One of the best men in the world was someone who tortured hundreds, if not thousands of people, and ordered the deaths of thousands of people?
