Alexander the Great
I was watching a show on Alexander and the peope were talking about how truly great he was for conquering most of the known world.
I was wondering, if Hitler had suceeded in most of his plans and conquered all of Europe and possibly more; would people be describing him as a "Great" man 1000 years from now? hitler the great??
I dont know if Alexander killed innocent people or whatever so maybe that is the biggest difference but this just had me wondering. Why someone who tried to conquer the world over 2000 years ago is considered great while if someone tried that today they would be considered evil at best...
