Socrates . . . Freedom Fighter



It is said that Socrates would not acknowledge certain deities in his teachings . . . And so the Powerful became enraged, had him arrested and a trial was had . . .

No one seems to be clear on his offenses.

In truth it was the first recorded defense for the right to free speech . . . And free speech lost that day. Socrates was found guilty, though it is said he had a choice . . . He probably could have pleaded for a lesser sentence but he chose not to. And so he was given a cup of poison and he drank from the cup.

I wonder how many of us would give so freely of our lives?
