For the past few weeks, I have been watching a number of youtube videos, discussions of various sorts. I stumbled rather by accident into the lectures by Prof. Victor Davis Hanson, a military historian. His articulation of western civilization is superb.

In the video "Why Greece Matters" www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-pOwv… he describes in great detail the various aspects of modern western culture which find their origins in the Greek city states.

In a presentation at the Hoover Institute www.youtube.com/watch?v=go8uMp… explains a number of the foreign conflicts currently being waged around the globe as the Greeks would have seen them. He seems to argue that struggles over land are really more like shoving matches where the actual prize is the honor and prestige that comes from victory.

XD Well remember the quote from Jack Torrance in The Shining, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."
