I love Greek Mythology more than Roman mythology, but that's just because schools study the Greeks more. No offense. Roman history is pretty awesome, but the Greeks survived. That's the difference lol. It's funny how the Greek number 3 happens in modern times and books, etc. Mythology is just awesome man.

Don't forget Louis XIV man. The "L'etat c'est moi" and all. Smh not ONE person should be head of ANY government, especially if the country is a major and powerful one. Stalin, Lenin, King Henry VIII, Napoleon, Queen Mary I, Hitler, Mussolini, the list goes on and on. History has shown us that one single person can not run a country solely by themself and NOT become power hungry. I'm sorry, democracy is the way. My favorite quote of all time is: "Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it". SO true.
We didn't learn from Napoleon, so we had a repeat with Hitler.
We haven't learned from Korea, so we're repeating it today with Iraq.
Leaders need to look at the past and remember what happened and LEARN from it. Or else our society will fall.
