Did You Know?
Did you know that Genghis Khan (yes, we’re on a roll for a couple of posts) liberated Mongolia from foreign rule and united millions and millions of disparate peoples; created an alphabet; wrote a constitution (yes, a written constitution); established universal religious freedom (yes, universal. More on this in another post); instituted a new system of warfare; marched an army from the distance between Canada and Brazil (just to give some perspective); and opened roads of commerce (the Silk Road) in a free-trade (yes) zone that stretched across the continents.
Not bad for an illiterate slave.
And by the way, while doing all this, he also established a free public education system.
