and add this

we did not so much change the hands that hold the power over us

we simply changed how much power we would allow them over us

if we have lost anything from that gain

it is not the fault of those of us who changed the way we thought

allowed that most of you have focalized on War

I'll take us down a route opposite

" Peace " and a change in our thinking , from combative racist ignorant grunts ,

to where being a free thinker became accepted instead of stigmatized as BAD

One who brought us out of that Military grey mindset

was Aldus Huxley

whose books caught on with a new generation in Hollywood during the '60's

and as we know
Hollywood sets the trends for cultural views

I can name perhaps half a dozen who were instrumental in consciousness
swaying ,,,

Timothy Leary being an asshole is off the list( he was a druggy, not a great thinker )

The mid-century changed the way people perceived

it brought about a relaxing of ridged mores and allowed space for us
to experiment with alternate ways of being and thinking .

The old Military regimental thought processing was due to die a long
over due death

and the steps we made , out into a new World that we were busy
creating

was changing the World

Aldus gave us that courage and a push .

The 20th century was a Transformational century

The Empowerment of Women began with that beginning of that Century

Tolerance

true Tolerance became REAL

and those who sought to change their way of perceiving
like Aldus

gave birth to the change .

Luckily Huxley wasn't allowed to join the military that he volunteered for(I wikied him to see if or how WW1 affected him) because he might have been killed coffeetime.gif

I agree with your choice because he made people think as opposed to just listening without thinking

WW1 affected everyone even Huxley which is why I chose the person that I did.

Air conditioning and refrigeration have resulted in a large geographic shift of the population at least in the US. He also invented the radio according to the U.S. Supreme Court, not Marconi.

#2 Churchill. If he hadn't stood up to Hitler, there's no telling what this world would be like.

Bonus. The person who should have had the greatest effect on the 20th century but didn't because of TPTB would be Dr. Emanuel Revici.

Not only did he cure cancer, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, arthritis, migraines and childhood retardation, he also rewrote the Periodic Table of Elements and came up with his own theory of evolution that beats the snot out of Darwinian Evolution.
