Video request: History vs. Aristotle, The ideals, teachings, and influences of Aristotle criticized with modern standards and morals, while revealing his most vile, and influential, philosophies.

How about you guys put the entire Wehrmacht on trial? They were separate from the SS, but their role in the war is very controversial. If that's too much to handle, I guess you can just put people like Rommel and Guderian on trial.

The prosecutor is a real prude. Most of his argument comes down to Henry's many wives. He did the same with Cleopatra

I would love to see history vs Martin Luther

Imao I find Henry guilty. This video makes it sound like most of these policies that set up Englands future came into being by mistake or by the will of the nobility. Also I'm catholic with an english ancestry so theres definitely no bia's here. But seriously he was a horrible guy who doesn't really deserve much praise the strong heir that he wanted would be his daughters not Edward who would only die in regency.

I want a History vs. Anne Boleyn. Like Anne has been deemed as a seductress or manipulator or as a victim.I honestly believe its a mixture of both, Anne knew what she wanted but didnt think that one day she would end up like Catherine of Aragon.

Do one for George III - the one who lost America and went mad (though we're still not sure what was wrong with him, we had a theory but now some are saying that it wasn't all) and one for his son George IV who was Regent for years and was thousands of pounds in debt after only 7 years of being Reget

MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATÜRK aka the greatest leader that world has ever seen must be in this concept!!!!!

in my perspective...the thin lawyers shows the moral faults in the defendant and the white haired lawyer represents the practical views and success the defendant has. It is a good way to show what really happened with the defendant's life

He was an important figure who had a profound impact on the course of history, but the same can be said of many self-serving monarchs who deserve to be studied but in no way celebrated.

I loved these back an forths, normally finding the defense attory very respectable, but blaming Henry's first wife for borning a son was pretty messed up. I am not sure exactly how much women in general affect a baby's gender. But to my understanding, a man's X and Y chromosomes are generally the deciding factor in the gender of a child.
