Homer > George Orwell

although 1984 is very good.

1984 wasn't horrible, but the greek epics are much better.
one flew over the cuckoo's nest for the win!

Fucking agreed. Although the dinner table debate about Irish Republican politics was alright.

Props to those of you who mentioned Homer. I totally agree, so much about today's society can be learned/understood by the Romans and Greeks. We do indeed get the majority of our customs and ideas from them. And it's quite interesting how you can look back on Rome at its peak and see so many similarities to today's society in the US. FUCK especially with this administration. It is so important for people to know that history and hardly anyone fucking cares or encourages it. So props to those of you who actually put in the time and care. Its unfortunate we are so few.

Jesus fucking Christ!!!! I believe the term was "Passionate, not obsessed"? Fuck off with your classics already, stop perverting every thread you enter with them.

Agreed with Justin, JESUS H. CHRIST, JENNY! Dubyasux mentioned books that deal specifically with politics. MODERN DAY politics.

I'm sorry, I know that we can learn from the past political systems but SOMETIMES it's good to focus on what's going on today because the fictional battle between Troy and Greece is *really* not very representative of the military projects of today.

For example, today's cities do not have WALLS around them anymore. And we don't fight with spears.

AND IN TODAY'S WORLD THE SIDES AREN'T BEING HELPED BY FUCKING GODS, OKAY?

For fuck's sake. I really like Harry Potter but do *I* mention that in every fucking post I make? sjgdkae6trob5cqkjf95xyt GET THE FUCK OFF ALREADY!

Really? You think it's funny?

I didn't know people like you existed.

Or at least, that's something I wish I could say.

Ann Coulter is such a bitch, though.

Ann Coulter is a worthless unintelligent bitch of a bigot who refuses to support her own arguments with anything concrete, and proof that even the dumbest people can graduate from elite educational institutions.

Sorry, just had to get that off of my chest.
