Heroes and Villains

More or Less is an interesting mini-encyclopedia of several of the great heroes & great villains of the 20th Century, with background information on each individual, the situation they were in, the scope of their impact on humanity, etc. It makes an interesting contrast, as well as a good thinking point on what one human life can achieve, for better or worse.

jonson, thank you very much for this link! I've spent the last hour lost in reading, with my only wish of having more personalities listed.
I was most interesting in che guevara. The author's commentary on che's influence and comparison to bin laden confirmed my thoughts on him.
The commentary on Roosevelt and his solutions to the depression, juxtaposed with Germany's Nazi party's answer, was interesting as well.

I love this. I'll be back to comment further when I'm done reading.

Good link, didn't notice any glaring omissions. Thanks thekorruptor for pointing out the Che Guevara link, don't agree with the criticism but his arguments seems reasonable.
