I think so. That's why I made Homer Reborn . And that's why I am inviting everyone here to come check it out.

Our focus is purely on the Classical World and why we should still study it today. Some other posts include:

Admiration Unburied , which compares Abraham Lincoln to Servius Tullius.

Soft Around The Edges , which relates the story of the Ionian revolt against Persia.

We even have a guest article (and are looking for guest writers!):
Republican Generals , which compares Publius Scipio Africanus to George Washington.

I formally invite everyone to drop on by and help support the cause-we need the world to know that the Classics are still alive and relevant today!

I wouldn't mind "dropPing in", if only your site hadn't had a clear political orientation, that's a neo-conservative one. Plus, I find the paralellisms that you're trying to draw, as arbitrary and 'accommodating".
The basis of a democratic state is liberty. Aristotle, Politics

Those that can give up essential liberty to obtain a temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin

Neo-Con?

Quite the contrary, I am very much against them .

My views are based on extensive readings of: Aristotle and Seneca.

I don't understand how the parallels are arbitrary though-would you mind explaining?

Maybe not neo, but definitely <i>con</i>. Could fail to notice the number of times that "Ayn Rand" and "Capitalism" appeared in your recommeded lists.

It is okay. First, rational conservatives are always welcome, I perosnally like them, and reading a conservative point on ancient history will be interesting.

Only promise me one thing: that you will actually hang around here to have those discussions as opposed to just dropping by while you do your promotional blitz.

After all, won't more people visit your site the more they see it here?

I actually meet your request!

Every day I come here and check out the different forums.  I'm not as much a "heavy post" as a "HEAVY poster".  This means that instead of posting a lot, when I do make a post...it is when I think I have something good to add.

I do have a "forum home" and hate people who come in, advertise, and leave; so I understand where you are coming from.  And trust me, I'm not that person .

Just curious, how would you define neo-con?
