Those that can lead good enough to instill hope in their followers make a difference and help shape the world. There is so much history that goes untold. Sure Barrack Obama won that little Nobel Peace Prize, but did you know that Mikhail Gorbachev won a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for Children. He was a voice actor for the Russian folk recording of Peter and the Wolf. Stranger yet, did you know that Napoleon Bonaparte (yeah that Napoleon) wrote a romance novel when he was a soldier. It was that really mushy stuff too. It took a while, but they got that together in 2008. Did you know that the Dutch Prime Minister rides a bike to work every day? It's not mandated, but he prefers it.
We try to focus on people that lead their people to what they perceived as the greatest good at their time. For some this was conquering others and then for some it was creating a peaceful and civil society.
