"Blowin' In The Wind"
Whether it be popes, presidents, prophets, peasants or pacifist peacemakers; monarchs, missionaries, Marxists, Maoists or mass-murdering megalomaniacs, history is full of fascinating and occasionally heroic and inspiring, but, sadly, far more often despicable and cruel, characters. That is, for every peace-loving Gandhi there have been ten war-and-death-loving Genghis Khans, Stalins, Hitlers, Pol Pots, Saddams and, not to forget, Dicks & Dubyas.
Talk about a legacy! Talk about a performance! Talk about a Presidency!
Mindless nationalism at its very worst. A nation - Canada - celebrates a pointless victory in a meaningless war.
Greatness defined through military might. By this definition, Hitler was a Great Man. But, then again, Hitler didn't do his slaughtering in the name of Jesus.
Can a man be considered great even if he's a complete hypocrite?
Voted "Greatest Briton" in a BBC contest. Let me see if I can guess for which mass slaughter.
