The greatness of individuals can be decided only by those who live after them, not by their contemporaries.

  The evolution of civilization has been replete with various of influence of different persons. Some of them have effected not only the contemporary community but also the development of future world. It is true that someone might not contribute to the society of that time, but their achivements could make profound impact on the descendants. So, both the contemporaries and people who live after them could decide the greatness of individuals.

  First of all, no one can deny that every phase in the history possess its celebrities who have made great contribution to the contemporary society. This is particulary mainfest in the political realm.Most of the political leaders delegate the rights to decide most of issues of the nation. It is the people who live in the same era of the great political leader could benefit from the influence of their smart policy. It is not surprise to find that people would like to evaluate the greatness of individuals according to their own gains. They would like to select the one who would provide them with the real benefits to be the president. That might be the reason why some super heros in the War could not be treated fairly. 

  However, compared with the contemporary persons, the descendants have some advantages in assessing the greatness of inviduals. Firstly, people live in the next generation are much easier to take an objective survey in judging the greatness of those who served as the dominant figure in the prior time. Just as the statement talked above, the people who are utilitarianism would evalute the greatness of individuals subjectively. Secondly, when estimating the value of some people, it is necessary to put the consideration in the long run. The achivements of some persons do have far-reaching impact on the progress of human civilization. But for some reasons, their great attainment could not be understood by the society of their time.

  Actually, both long term effects and short term effects of the great person's achivement are important in the judgement of the greatness of one individuals.
