In the spirit of the “Ancient Greeks”, this post is a great introduction to the “Ancient Economics” and how we can apply it to our own lives today.
Some of the ancient Greeks were interested in saving the world from poverty, but it’s probably more accurate to say they studied the problems of poor people. They were among the first to discover that wealth and power are not necessarily a bad thing, and that “power” can, in fact, be a good thing.
One of the most famous ancient Greek philosophers was Aristotle. He was born around 460 BC. He spent his entire life in Athens, teaching, writing, and researching his way through life, until his death around Aristotle’s death in 322 BC. And at any point in time, he would have had a philosophy that would have fit the perfect needs of his times. He was a man who was interested in how power works, and he was well versed in the ways power works.
The ancient Greeks took the idea of a rational and free society, and applied it to an all too familiar problem. We currently have a system that rewards the wealthy and lets them get away with murder, but Aristotle had a different view on how this power works. One of his ideas was that power was largely wielded by the ruler, who had to make the laws, and so he put a lot of focus on the concept of the free will of the citizens.
The ancient Greek system, in contrast, didn’t have a ruler. It was a free-for-all, a system where the people could try to do as they saw fit. In that sense, it’s not that different from the American system. But it’s also not that different from the Chinese system, which is what we have today. Power is often wielded by one person—the ruler—over a large group of people.
The ancient greeks dont really have a leader, so they dont have laws, and they dont have a set of laws. The people are free to do what they want to do, so long as they dont hurt each other. And the people have free will, so they dont have to obey the law.
We have come a long ways since the ancient greeks. When Alexander the Great came around, he ordered the people to worship him and obey him. And we still do. It just means we do things that the people dont agree with.
We still have free will. All you need to do is think for a moment, and you’ll realize that free will is the key to everything.
Now you may be wondering why we’re talking about free will here, but remember, the people are not free to do as they please. This is one of the main tenants of our democracy. Our free will means we have a reason to be free. We can choose to obey the laws, or we can choose to disobey them. If we disobey them, we are forced to pay a fine to the government. And we’re not allowed to disobey them again.
This is a concept that is often misunderstood. In everyday language you always hear two words: “I disobey,” and in the same sentence you hear “I obey.” The difference between the two is the tone. In the first case, the person is forced to do something against their will. That is, it’s something that they “have to” do. In the second case, the person is free to do it.
