I am in a philosophy class and the question was put to me:
consider: What about some (other) examples from history of when bad turned out to be good...?
For example, what about major revolutionary figures in history...
Can you think of any whom were considered bad by their own society but are seen as good by generations (of the very same society) later on?
People who come to mind are MLK, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill. Perhaps the abolitionist John Brown or William Wilberforce but it seems to me there ought to be better examples? My list is narrow.
Can any of you think of someone?
