Good morning!

This is a pure revisionist fantasy. Socrates was the friend, lover, and teacher of a group of brutal tyrants who took over Athens and murdered 5% of the population. Socrates was tried for collaboration, not for resistance.
Let's do just a little bit of history to wrap up the week.

I've done versions of this thread before on my old account, but here it is again. Also, I'm writing a book about this and I'm no longer in the habit of giving away my best work for free, so this is very schematic.
The Peloponnesian War was an imperial war between Athens and Sparta for control of the Aegean and the Greek-speaking world. It lasted from 431 BC until 404 BC.

The war ended with the defeat of Athens by Sparta.

Thank you, liberal America. Thanks again for insisting Hillary was the strongest choice despite the polling; thanks for inadvertently putting this man in the White House; thanks for the New Cold War; thanks in advance, for the bodies...
At the end of the day, don’t worry about that legacy. At least you #resisted...

(1) I #resisted following the March for Our post-birth Lives but some of the photos are too good not to share. In this one, a proud American NRA member who happens to be black peacefully protests the idiocy. Arguably, he has more at stake than most of the kids marching.
(2) If given the chance, I can make a very strong case for African Americans and "people of color" benefiting from this administration more than other groups. But the Left isn't interested in hearing it and resorts immediately to the expired race card.
(3) As @Dloesch is constantly telling us, black males are one of the groups, if not the group, most affected by gun homicides, especially in certain large cities, that have coincidentally been held by Democrats for many decades, and are supposed gun free zones (aka killing zones)
