Haven't chatted with you for a while! I'm fine thanks and trust all's well with you.

This struck a chord with me. Here's why:
Sometime this year I'm planning to read (an English translation of) a biography of Napoleon
by the French Marxist historian, Georges Lefebvre. The introduction has this to say:
"There is a paradox that lies at the heart of George Lefebvre's magisterial biography of Napoleon Bonaparte... The author... was one of the great Marxist intellectuals of the second quarter of the twentieth century... Yet his ... Napoleon
... is emphatically of the 'Great Man' school of history
so despised by Marxists. It is pure history from above and accepts that the actions and will of a single extraordinary man could counteract those of the proletarian masses
that Lefebvre himself so idolised."
So, I wonder, who among us dares to be a Napoleon?
Evan may be getting close - and he has provided some great examples of entrepreneurial Napoleons in his video series.
