Question: Could a force like Alexander the Great exist today? Why or why not?
It would be incredibly hard for a force and power like Alexander the Great to exist today. Back in Alexander’s day the government was a lot different, but their government helped shaped the way our government is today. Some main differences is that the king or leader had a lot more power given to them then what our president might get today. There was really no one that could challenge the kin’s authority or decisions; whereas, there are many people who can disagree with the president and stop him from doing something. In other parts of the world political leaders are given more power than in the United States, but it would be very hard for them to take over as much land as Alexander did. We have newer and more modern weaponry that results in a more gruesome and challenging war. Because of this if someone were to attempt to take over most of the world there army would have to be unbelievable. A lot of people would also challenge someone’s authority today if they attempted to take over large areas of the world because many people wouldn’t like the idea of a single ruler with all the power. As you can see I don’t believe that a force like Alexander the Great could exist today.
