Forbe's "Fifteen People Who Have Changed the World"
Forbes Magazine has, of course, their own ideal of what is "better" for the world. I have some strong disagreements. But it's good to get something to consider.
Fifteen People Who Have Changed the World - Lifestyle Channels: "Fifteen People Who Have Changed the World"
None of us can see what directions the world will take in the future, and events that seem monumental today might turn out to be mere pebbles on the road of history. But there are some achievements so notable, so ground-shaking, that even within the short space of a few decades we can feel their impact. We've chosen a few examples of this revolutionary spirit: 15 people who changed the world since 1950.
Of course, not everyone changes the world for the better. Clearly, we could do with fewer Osama bin Ladens and more Mikhail Gorbachevs, who, when given great power, directed it toward goals that benefited mankind. Our list is made up exclusively of the latter.
