Historical leaders you wish you could meet and hang out with

Postby The High Tatras » Tue Dec 10, 2013 9:49 pm

Sometimes I read about historical leaders and think that they are very interesting characters. Sometimes I think they would even be interesting people to meet and get to know as a person. When I choose historical leaders that I would like to meet, I try to view them through an apolitical perspective, thinking of them as unique individuals and not as politicians. Nor do I judge them by the political decisions they made. Some examples of historical leaders that I think might be fun to meet and hang out with include Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, Ludwig II of Bavaria, and Harun al-Rashid. There are numerous others, but they escape me at the moment.

What historical leaders do you think would be interesting to know (and remember, do not take their politics into account)?

ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!

Mandela V.V

But also maybe Alexander the Great, or Attila the Hun, cause I imagine with the messes those guys left behind, they really knew how to party!

Mark Twain- seems like a fun guy (he's a leader in writing, I count this as a loophole)

Julius Caesar- just read the Shakespearian tragedy about him, it would be cool seeing him in person
Thomas Jefferson- just a smart guy in general
Hitler- just so I could slap him

In matters of military, Sun Tzu, Tsubodai, and Tamerlane. In matters of politicking, Stalin, Augustus and Bismarck.

Also probably Qin Shi Huang, Muhammad Ali Pasha and Theodore Roosevelt, because badass.

Your nation is like a son. What it does right is your merit, as well as what it does wrong is your fault. When you praise it, be lucid and avoid exaggeration. Praising it too much can make it indolent. On the other hand, when you criticize it, be harsh, but do not ridicule it. Do your best to improve it, not through derision or disdain, but through good examples and dedication.
