I wish we could say that these guys were really out of the ordinary, which is what (I think, at least) is implied by calling them “World-Changing Geniuses” and “Total Monsters.” I don’t think they were all that out of the ordinary in their own times - or would be now for that matter. There are all too many of these guys still around; just open any newspaper any day. Hopefully, things are starting to change but it’s going to take a while, and a whole lot of effort by many, many people.
