“Without its tough spearmen, Hellenic culture would have had nothing to give the world. It would not have lasted long enough. When Greek culture became so sophisticated that its common men would no longer fight to the death, as at Thermopylae, but became devious and clever, a horde of Roman farm boys overran them.”

After I seen the original post, I sat down and read threw it. I thought it was good so I called my wife in to read it to. She said it was so good, sigfreund ought to write a book and sale it. Than he could make a lot of money.
