All part of cosmos-order, bios-life, chronos-time, phos-light

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history - George Orwell

Every generation, of anarchist, rebellious, criminal, autistic revolutionaries ... will try to destroy what is, in favor of what never can be (utopia).

But they are just xenos (foreign).  Barbaroi.

I want this to be an ongoing mini-channel celebrating ancient Greek culture.  Dead White Men Arise From Hades!

The theater had a chorus.  Here is an updated version, starring young Classicists.

Aeschylus, the Athenian ... is the primary inventor of Western theater.  He and his brother fought at Marathon, and his brother died there.  Without Aeschylus, would there be theater as we know it today?

Here are two short documentaries in Marathon, without Athenian victory, there would be no Greco-Roman civilization, to be a component of Western civilization.

The description of Herodotus, founder of Western history, himself from Helicarnassus, a town in Greek Asia (W Turkey), which had been subjugated by Persia.  His history was premiered as a public recitation, in the first Odeon or covered theater, on the side of the Acropolis.  Next to it was the open theater of Dionysus, where the first tragedies and comedies were premiered.  This first Odeon, was built of wood, taken from Persian ships destroyed in the battle of Salamis, just outside the Athenian harbor, which happened 10 years after Marathon, during the second invasion of Greece by Persia.

Greater detail, as a machinima, of the primary battle.

A quick summary of Greek history, with no disrespect intended to Persians nor Turks.
