Individuals in History: Who is the most misunderstood human in history?

Recommended Posts

Who in your opinion is the most misunderstood person in human history? Somebody whose legacy you feel is often unfairly tainted, or perhaps isn't given enough credit for something they achieved that had a major impact on humanity or the natural world...

As ever, keep it thoughtful and SF cosy, and don't bash others for their responses. 😂

It was to tell people not to listen to authority.

Would that make it an anarchist?

Hmmm... :huh:


... what a load of Cobras!

 

I think I must point out that this 'ere snake of which you speak is (i) by definition, a reptilian creature and (ii) is a ficticious character.

 

It therefore fails to satisfy the requirements as specified in the thread title on both counts, and as such has as much right to be included in the thread as one of the Ninja Turtles. :roll:

Ross Greer! Maybe he doesn't really hate Churchill and Piers Morgan and is only covering up for his own inadequacy.

I would have thought that everyone hated Piers Morgan, including his parents.
