What Do We Learn From History?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Native Son Dec 4, 2014. 285 Replies

I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his…Continue

Reading Novels Makes Us Better Thinkers

Started this discussion. Last reply by cresman Aug 13, 2013. 66 Replies

The novel has a hard time competing with the visual stimulation of cinema. The novel taxes our imaginations and our time because we must be actively involved with it and committed to it. But this…Continue

I pray and hope that all AoM members in Texas and their families are safe in the wake of the destructive tornadoes that struck the Dallas/Fort Worth area yesterday. Be well!

A Recent Instance in Which I Was Censored

Posted on April 3, 2012 at 2:00pm 2 Comments

It was but this morning when a fellow member's blog appeared on the front page. Its title, raising awareness about government regulation in a certain industry, intrigued me, so I clicked, and I read it thoroughly. The post amounted to a lot of slogans without much substance to the actual argument, and therefore I brought up some of these issues in the comment section.

 

The author and I ended up participating in an exchange, which was civil and on the whole rather bloodless,…

On Closing Blogs to Commentary

Posted on April 2, 2012 at 9:18am 5 Comments

When we create a blog post on this site, we are sharing with the community. We may be sharing our personal lives, reviewing the latest (albeit, 80+years old) shaving gear we bought, entertaining our fellow members with the history of facial hair, or arguing our political views in an essay.

 

When we, the members of this site, create a blog post, we are injecting our own ideas, however small, petty, or provincial, into the marketplace of…

nope, not a big tattoo guy. Just been a year since I have been translating and such and trying to see if I am still on course.

Plus everyone knows if I wanted a tattoo it would say Molon Labe with an American flag and 2 riffles shooting down the red plague of socialism!

so... would Πάντα  ερώτα, μάνθανε τι, μηδέν αποκρίνου be the most proper way to write the uncited Euripidean quote of "Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing"?

and to make it more accurate, would one have to capitalize it all with no spaces or accents?

Ah, A gyro!  I thought I'd never get good Greek food again after I moved out of Astoria.  But it turns out that there are some decent Greek restaurants and even one excellent one here on the West side of the Hudson...

Thanks for the welcome!  I can't contribute much on classical Greek, but am a real fan of Greek music and food - born and raised in "Little Athens" (Astoria, NY), and lived there until my mid-30s....

Are there any other Greek or Greek-inspired musicians out there?
