This is the best article I have read in along while.

It's about turning points in history, and how individuals change history. It takes a look at 1979 the year Margaret Thacther, Pope John Paul ll, Deng Xiaoping and the Ayatollah khomeini changed the world, and asks if we are at a similar juncture now.
