World’s Deadliest Plant Takes Out Most Controversial Man in All of Athens

𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗧𝗶𝗺𝗲: < 1 minute

Before his death in 399 B.C.

Socrates went around terrorizing all the so-called keepers of knowledge…
The nobility, the educators, the politicians…

With a line of clever questioning, known today, as the Socratic method.

Which is basically the philosophical equivalent of a four year old asking “why” every time you propose a reasonably appropriate answer to their question.

And what Socrates found is that no one really seemed to have any legitimate basis for knowing any of the things they purported to know.

And this made a number of powerful and wise men look terribly foolish.

So they killed him.

I don’t have children, but I imagine those that do can empathize, on occasion, with the Grecian court’s decision.

Nevertheless, while there are entities in existence who will go to great lengths to prevent anyone from questioning their authority…

Socrates, in true philosophical martyrdom…

Did not run, and he did not flee…

He accepted the poison with his final protest…

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

Until next time,
