If you could choose any historical figure to give a TED Talk, who would it be and why?

This one is pretty open-ended. I'm curious to know who you would choose for a TED Talk, why, and maybe what you think their "idea worth spreading" might be.

  • Apr 14 2013: @Chris - I agree that Jesus would be a thrilling speaker - but for a different reason. He wanted to teach us that its possible to have a system of truth-based governance (the Kingdom he kept describing) that leads to a depth of knowledge that empowers us as human beings to overcome disease, hunger, war, and much of the ignorance we still have over how the earth and physical world we live in really works; and how as humans if we understood our own design, we could better influence physical outcomes. Now that would be one fascinating talk!!
