History, sets an example to us. If they did it, we can make it too.
The free exchange of products, services and ideas. Stories of free men, in independent cities. Let these be our prime examples as we build our societies. And thus, as Pericles said about Athens:
“Future generations will wonder at us, as the present generation wonders at us now.”
