Featuring... John Lennon - One of the most influential singer-songwriters of the past hundred years, John Lennon was a peace icon. He didn’t just sing songs about love and unity, but was involved in various pro-peace political movements and paid for billboards with anti-war slogans on them in London and New York. Dr. Seuss - If you were born in America, there’s a twenty-five percent chance that the first book you ever read was written by Theodor Geisel, known more widely as Dr. Seuss. Michael Jordan - Widely regarded as the best basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan is a towering figure in the world of sports. The man has his own brand of shoes, and can be seen selling undershirts in commercials now that he’s retired from dominating a whole sport for years. Steve Jobs - This man is seen by many as one of the most important visionaries of the century. A business icon credited with revolutionizing the tech industry, he is a household name on par with the likes of legends such as Henry Ford. Mozart - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is perhaps the most famous musician of all time. His music has been listened to and performed for the past two hundred years. Mother Teresa - If you look at most lists of 'the best people who ever lived', chances are Mother Teresa will make an appearance. Most hail her as the pinnacle of human kindness as she even won the Nobel peace prize. Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll, is an instantly recognizable cultural icon. He had girls fainting in the audience before The Beatles, and became an international sex symbol thanks to his high energy erotic dancing and womanizing image. Mahatma Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement, an independence movement, that, unlike a lot of others, didn’t involve trying to kill lots of people. Leonardo da Vinci is known for basically everything you can be known for. He was an inventor, painter, sculptor, architect, scientist, musician, mathematician, and virtually every other kind of ‘ician’ that existed at the time. Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of facebook, inspired the movie, The Social Network, and is quite a rich person, to say the least. In short, He is the penultimate entrepreneurial programmer.

Well Henry Ford was a jerk too, generally if they are massively successful it's probably because they are a nasty piece of work.

Shame on you for involving Gandhi, you're just a bloody mind washed freak. He gave us freedom and that's why the west is trying to make him negative. Great people are always gonna be put down by some idiots like this admin.

You don't understand that Mother Teresa couldn't do anything more then she did at that time. You mentioned about poor living standard during that time but you barely know Indian history and the tough times we've been through. She wasn't an impostor, she was loved by us Indians and she's a immortal figure in our culture.

Total Bullshit!! Please stop spreading false information. Your knowledge is limited to text books and internet, which are factual but not contextual. Don't talk as if you know these people personally. Strange how people love to find (false) reasons to hate others. Unsubscribed!!

Author Bero256 ( ago) Mother Theresa was basically doing shit Hitler and Lenin did to a point. They spreaded their ideology by baiting people with certain acts...and the catholibans don't want you to know about it

Author christian cadigal ( ago)
Gandhi was the worst of all. The father of all evil. Pervert, lunatic, maniac and yet his people didn't do anything about this? Crazy!!! If given the chance i would cut off his ball myself. And feed him to piranhas so he could feel the pain he causes , and for being the pain in the ass. He's such and asshole, dirty

Author christian cadigal ( ago)
What disappoint me the most was mother.Teresa. She was praised all over the world even making her a saint for what? So disgusting to know the truth how these people acted badly but being praised in the end. How could people turned blind eyes to these fact and pretended and feigning ignorance of all the truth behind it. It disgust me to the bone. 😡😠

Someone's been ling to you about SAINT MOTHER TERESA.

Author kryceksangel ( ago)
You are an idiot who knows nothing about Mother Teresa.

Author ChefP 147 ( ago)
Is anybody surprised that the Catholic Church canonized Mother Theresa? The Catholic Church praises and puts on a piedestal people who are in reality evil even though they outwardly appear to be good. Priests who are pedophiles are seldom outed or punished by the church but are just moved around between parishes trying to hide their crimes and to always keep them supplied with fresh victims!!

you failed to mention that Henry Ford was anti semitic, he even wrote a front page article with the title, "The Jewish Problem" ... Adolf Hitler personally called him his "Inspiration" [Imagine That!]. In fact, Henry Ford automobile company continued to supply Nazi Germany with resources during the first year of the war, even though America had put a ban into supplying weapons and arms to the enemy bill. Crazy shit! You also didn't talk about Bruce Lee, I thought he was a saint, till i read a Biography about him written by his closest friend titled "Unsettled Matters" ... dude was an arrogant jerk!, very arrogant man Bruce Lee! shocking!.

Author satish chavan ( ago)
you f----- m----- fucker dont you talk about gandhi and his character related to girls and even if it was true it would have been known all over the world because he is not a limited continental hero like MJ or elvis he is a star of the universe who sacrificed his whole lifetime for a nations's freedom not to earn fame and money like the others of your list so first study about the person about whom you are accusing and then proceed you blady chicken shit mother fucker.

Author Cheryl Boone ( ago)
Figures she would be declared a "Saint" Eventhough a horrible care giver

Author Matt Hubbell ( ago)
Yes, some of these are really shitty (Lennon beating his wife, Elvis being a pedo, etc). Others can be misunderstood-- having distance in time and difference in culture that lead to lack of understanding.
Also, anyone that thinks any of these people were perfect humans would be a fool. Nobody is perfect, and even Gandhi or Maternal Unit Terry had their faults.

That's not to say that I'm arguing the validity of any of these, because I don't feel like going on a research spree right now :P
But making a big deal about media overblowing the good (or bad) qualities of someone is not surprising.

Also not surprising, Zuckerberg as a psychology major. Gotta figure out how to manipulate people for personal gain somehow. Might as well learn from the best and give fake intentions.

you are also a jerk.. negative human ...

Author brijemnaagresivu ( ago)
John Lennon - Hitting people and violent fistfights are much better to solve a dispute than killing or getting killed for someone else's interest. Yeah, he was a human being, not a saint.
Same is for Elvis. So what if he had an affair with a man??? Rob fucking Halford is known to be gay.
Gandhi being a pervert??? Well, an old guy sleeping with a young woman is pretty common in India. Nothing strange, as they have had that tradition for over 3000 years. Unimaginable to us, but normal to them.
You didn't even mention the fact thet Steve Jobs stole ideas from other less popular people and companies, proclaiming them his own and rising their price.
This about da Vinci is bullshit. Yes, vivisection was illegal, but he didn't steal bodies from graves. He was given corpses by the doctors, which was approved by the Florentine government.

Author Dorian L ( ago)
Loving your channel!! Thank u!!!

Author Amal Rajan ( ago)
u call da vinci a thief for practising on dead body. lol. ur just twisting facts to get more views. creepy

Author Randall Flagg ( ago)
I was only surprised by Elvis, and Gandhi, since I'd never heard any of these facts about them. ''Mother'' Teresa is also quoted as saying ''pain is a gift from god''; thus, she insisted people suffer it

No surprise about Zuckerberg. FaceBook isn't genius level coding. It doesn't have to be. It's genius level psychology. Besides ... you can hire coders for cheap. The founder shouldn't be coding such a thing himself.

Author samaraisnt ( ago)
Uummm, that Dr Seuss think was really shortsighted/not well researched. He (willingly) drew political cartoons, and was so popular at it that was asked to do war bonds cartoons, not that odd for a cartoonist.. He was also a virulent anti-fascist and did a lot of anti nazi cartoons....The Japanese were part of the axis at the time and anyone who made cartoons then was caricaturing them (I'm not saying it was right, but it was very typical). He stated later that he deeply regrets the caricatures but that he was extremely proud of his political stuff.

Honestly, you should check them out and judge for yourself, they are spectacular I would hardly characterize the whole of the work as "racist," perhaps shortsighted at times, but he openly admitted to that himself.

Also that thing about kids everyone knows & is a common story; but as a result of his extreme shyness. Lots of children's authors were really shy and or hated meeting children fans...apparently he would run and hide from them. I mean it definitely makes you a person with an funny fear, but it doesn't mean you hate kids.

Author Alexander Rüffer ( ago)
always be nice to ghandi ore he nukes you

Author PaninaroAurora ( ago)
Both Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl were kind of prickly around children. Funny how that made for great children's books.

Ghandi made up an entire religion in an attempt at counter-imperialism, which was largely successful, one could argue.

A classic troll. On the other hand, Indish nationalists killed him for this beliefs.

The only thing Gandhi got right was the mistrust of Jews. You know, the 3% of the population that control 99% of everything you hear and see in the media and movies. The ones who control all the world's money and manipulate the US to fight wars for them.

Author Clean Sanchez ( ago)
Who the hell is Mozzart?

Author Clean Sanchez ( ago)
Gandhi was a selfish and horrible human being. Time has cherry picked the facts and skewed the truth making a disgusting man a Justin Martyr.
