When an individual is set in believing his doctrine, ideology, etc... are the best... When that individual "knows" they are the best, they will stop at nothing to enforce it upon everyone else. The Emperor of mankind did this mind you.
Good points.

I personally believe guilliman to be the best leader(even above the emperor). He has all the qualities imo. He cares for his sons, can surely build an empire, and in general cares for the well being of humans. Him being the only primarch to have an actual family makes himself very human

I tend to agree with your POV.

IMHO, I think the emperor choosed Horus as Warmaster because Horus was truly competent, but also because he knew Horus would be hurt a lot if he didn't choose the Lunar Wolves's primarch.

Alas, by that time, he had already stomped the ego and the feelings of Lorgar...

It is mentioned in Know no fear that it was only ever between guilliman and horus for warmaster, but Guilliman already had his own empire to look after. He had already evolved beyond warmaster.
