I still think he was a great person because of what he did, I don't think it's fair to judge people of the past by our modern moral standards. He was a man, a great man, but still only human. What you have to realize is how hard life was for most of history. People had a higher tolerance for cruelty, because life was shit. It's honestly sad to watch people jerk themselves off over being morally superior to people who didn't have the same luxuries and knowledge they have.
