HowВ GreatВ wasВ AlexanderВ TheВ Great? В

ForВ manyВ yearsВ AlexanderВ theВ GreatВ wasВ knownВ asВ oneВ ofВ theВ bestВ menВ toВ everВ live, В whenВ actuallyВ he'sВ not really. В AlexanderВ theВ GreatВ wasВ bornВ inВ MacedoniaВ inВ 356В BCE. В WhenВ hisВ fatherВ wasВ assassinated, В heВ tookВ overВ theВ throneВ atВ theВ ageВ ofВ twenty. В Certainly, В AlexanderВ didВ takeВ overВ aВ veryВ largeВ empire, В butВ theВ importantВ questionВ is, В wasВ a В greatВ man? В ToВ beВ aВ greatВ manВ an individual В shouldВ beВ measuredВ byВ theirВ integrityВ andВ concernВ forВ others, В notВ justВ byВ howВ manyВ peopleВ theyВ haveВ killed. В ThisВ manВ didВ notВ evenВ makeВ aВ strategyВ toВ keepВ hisВ kingdomВ runningВ properlyВ afterВ heВ died. В AlexanderВ theВ GreatВ wasВ notВ greatВ becauseВ heВ executedВ thousandsВ ofВ persons. В InВ fourВ ofВ hisВ mostВ importantВ battlesВ heВ killedВ overВ 100, 000В enemyВ soldiersВ andВ civiliansВ (DocВ E). В WhenВ TyreВ fellВ toВ Alexander, В hisВ armyВ killedВ thousandsВ ofВ peopleВ andВ soldВ overВ 40, 000В peopleВ toВ slaveryВ (DocВ C). В В HeВ killedВ justВ toВ kill. В В HeВ hadВ noВ regardВ forВ soldiersВ orВ civiliansВ lives. В В ForВ someoneВ toВ beВ greatВ theyВ mustВ haveВ integrity. В IntegrityВ is ​ toВ haveВ nobleВ andВ

honorable principles​

. В AlexanderВ doesВ notВ haveВ integrity. В AnyoneВ whoВ cutsВ offВ aВ person'sВ headВ offВ becauseВ theyВ wornВ theirВ hatВ shouldВ notВ beВ calledВ greatВ (DocВ D). В ThisВ doesВ notВ showВ theВ signВ ofВ aВ greatВ leader. В ThisВ showsВ thatВ justВ becauseВ someoneВ isВ importantВ theyВ canВ killВ whoВ everВ theyВ want. В

TheВ finalВ reasonВ why В AlexanderВ wasВ notВ greatВ becauseВ heВ didВ notВ assureВ thatВ hisВ kingdomВ wouldВ stayВ upВ andВ runningВ afterВ hisВ deathВ (BCEВ andВ DocВ D). В WhenВ heВ diedВ leftВ hisВ kingdomВ withoutВ aВ rulerВ toВ leadВ them. В SomeoneВ whoВ wantsВ theirВ kingdomВ shouldВ itВ toВ goВ onВ forever, В notВ justВ whileВ theyВ areВ alive. В

ManyВ peopleВ believeВ thatВ AlexanderВ isВ oneВ ofВ theВ greatestВ peopleВ toВ...
