People rarely are all good or all evil. We tend to be a mix of motivations and behaviors. Review our studies thus far this term. Choose one person or group of people who you consider to be admirable. Analyze this person or a group of people who did good at a particular time in history. Explain the duties, goals, and motivations which led to admirable outcomes for Western civilization.
However, do not ignore shortcomings or even failings. Anticipate criticisms of this person or group of people by telling us about their flaws, too. In other words, your task is to persuade us that this flawed person or group of people deserves our admiration despite also possessing some less-than-admirable traits.
