There's certainly a case to be made that Alexander the Great was
a murdering imperialist dictator. On the other hand, pretty much
all successful leaders in the Iron Age were murdering imperialist
dictators. Not all of them valued education, founded innumerable
libraries, cherished cultural diversity, thought creatively, or led by
example. I could go on and on. And, much to the dismay of friends
and family, sometimes I do. This song is just the tip of the iceberg.
