For example, if Cao Cao didn't fail the assasination, then he wouldn't have issued the edict that formed the alliance. And if the alliance wasn't formed, for all we know, Dong Zhuo could have remained in power, or perhaps Yuan Shao would've become the power of the northern heartland. But that's just one example. Your thoughts?

I mean, say Cao Cao. He created the State of Wei, the base from which Jin was formed. Important? Yes.
But lessee, without Liu Bei and his creating of Shu, Sima Yi would never have earned so much respect for all the stuff he did against Shu, if Shu didn't exist. Hence, in a way, without Shu, Jin would never exist.
So therefore, there is no single "moving force."
