    Introduction to Ancient Greek History with Donald Kagan



    why does the right in this country want religion back in control of government?

    these are Yale tapes of a top history professor discussing ancient Greece and what it means to society today.


    Knowing history is very advantages toi making good decisions.

    Please people on the right LEARN some of the things you claim are not important to our decision making before you just throw real information out so you can retain failed ideas.

    Religion is not the best way of handing down self control and a generally accepted morality. It is just the most efficient.

    It is entirely possible to have a democracy composed of cannibals. All you need is enough cannibals. That's something liberals cannot possibly understand.
