The spartans I do not like, but no denying they were absolutely nails. Xenophon was very fond and he was as good as you get back then. The women were considered by all the ancient world as the most beautiful and alicibides proved, a man with democratic principles can run amok in a closed world which worships masculinity.
The Spartans were also the catalyst for the formation of modern Greece. After the 300 immolated themselves at Thermopylae, the varying city states came to realise they were stronger combining into a larger state.
The difference between that and the putative USE is that the Greek city states combining into a larger entity had popular support.
Always a good one. Liike the Japanese training the Kamikaze pilots to explode on take off.
A masterful plan.
Except for one thing, it doesn’t look like there’s a brexiter who wants the job.. They still seem to be having trouble getting to the 48.
