WESTERN WIMPS! PRICK UP YOUR EARS NOW!
I remind you of the UNPARALLELED CULTURAL HERITAGE that the ANCIENT GREEKS bequeathed the WORLD:
«I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO TUNE A HARP, OR PLAY UPON A LUTE;
BUT I KNOW HOW TO RAISE A SMALL AND OBSCURE CITY TO GLORY AND GREATNESS...
WHERETO ALL KINDRED OF THE EARTH WILL PILGRIM!»
THEMISTOCLES (c. 524 - c. 460 BC) - Athenian statesman and general (Strategos).
The FOCUS of his POLITICS was on NAVAL POWER and MILITARY SKILLS.
Led by him the GREEK FLEET defeated the PERSIAN FLEET on September 29 480 BC in the NAVAL BATTLE of SALAMIS.
This VICTORY is a CENTRAL EVENT in WORLD HISTORY because it ENSURED DEFINITELY the INDEPENDENCE of EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION against that of the EAST!
BRAINY KYROS - comment!
I witness the downfall of the West!
«IF THE BATTLE FOR CIVILIZATION COMES DOWN TO THE WIMPS VERSUS THE BARBARIANS,
THE BARBARIANS ARE GOING TO WIN!»
THOMAS SOWELL (1930)
American economist and social theorist!
SORRY, MR. SOWELL! - I THINK, THE BARBARIANS HAVE ALREADY WON THIS BATTLE!
