Why Study the Classics?

The histories of Athens and Sparta—the most dominant cities of classical Greece—are of vital importance to understanding the story of Western Civilization. In Athens, great thinkers such as Plato examined universal philosophical questions. In Sparta, the martial virtues, including the virtue of courage, were mastered. A careful study of these two cities reveals timeless lessons about human nature and human conflict.

Of course. It's history, and history is important. Perhaps the *most* important field of study. Combine history with sociology and you get a crisp picture of the human condition, which is how all these modern influencers can control such a large portion of the population. Human behavior doesn't change, even from ancient civilizations.
