The war led to Greek cities concentrating less on fighting and more on intellectual growth and cities such as Ionia pioneered in research revolving around metaphysics. There were social and political consequences of the war that affected all futuristic activities of the Greek people. The social and political systems of Athens and Sparta after the war affected the way they conducted their civil war as they avoided an all-out-war and took certain small strategic attacks on each other. Socially, the Greek states after the war supported minor rebellions and politically, they rallied against taking one city at a time from their
Conclusion Neither society was as inclusive as most modern societies, but both had things they held ideologically important, and did very well. We would do well to look upon the successes and eventual catastrophic failure of both societies, and avoid the same pitfalls-many of which are present in the current global political landscape. It is fascinating to me that Sparta lives in infamy to this day, despite the dearth of archeological remains when compared with Athens. What will be said of our society after it has faded into antiquity bears

The Iliad showed us what a Greek person should be. Akhilleus possessed these qualities, while the antagonist, Agamemnon, was lacking the field of leadership and of being a warrior. The author did this so that the Greeks would imitate Akhilleus who was a strong, clever warrior and not Agamemnon who was inferior to Akhilleus in many ways. Akhilleus did not become strong through suffering and hard work, but instead, he was born with it because her mother was a goddess. He had everything he needed, power, fame, and a high position in the Akhaian Army.
Hence you see these victors are the office holders for the Security Council in the present day united nations. A lot of political philosophers agree to the fact that justice is achieved through going to war. Although there is no proper evidence to this according to history (example). Pacifist believe that war is not just unjust but also it is inevitably wrong hence his opponent argues that even though war is unjust it is means towards achieving peace and can help the society escape more injustice. So there is a big difference between considering war as the last resort and believing in war being a just measure to stop
Despite the other justifications, Thucydides believes the war was not fought for justice, but because of the Spartan fear of increasing Athenian greatness (Thucydides 1998, I.23). This cause is also considered the “least openly expressed” because it is not what the two states can use to mobilize armies and get public support that would be necessary to win (Thucydides 1998, I.23). Thus, the war may not sincerely have been started in a pursuit of what is right, but with self-interested motivations to acquire power and assuage
This is interesting today hence the correlations between the Greco-Roman world and the modern world, i.e. the infrastructure also supports fast sharing of knowledge and education and a general acceptance of exotic deities.

Whereas the Roman had military effectiveness and expertise. Hellenistic Period The foundation of the Greco-Roman world were established by Alexander III, with a strong military force he formed a great empire, but by a stroke of genius he modeled Greek culture in the capitals or newly founded cities, the captured countries were not only held in a iron grip, but also in a volunteer acceptance hence the new opportunities for the elite like gymnasiums, theaters and an common language of commerce (deSilva, 2004, pp39-42).
As a result, the US fought a long and costly war that ended in a defeat against the less technological advanced communists. Advantages and disadvantages of technology in war Technology does play a key role during the war as nations strongly depended on it to assist them in winning wars.

Julius Caesar was the first dictator of Rome, which left the people with a displeasing feeling of him. He came into rule, wanting to make life better for the people of Rome and give them better odds in the case of something bad happening. My prompt was to elaborate what led to Julius Caesar’s death and how it happened; also supposed to give a reason to why they thought he was killed. Julius Caesar died because of the way he tried to go about ruling Rome; the council did not agree with the way that Caesar was trying to rule and they disagreed with him on more than one occasion, because he had political experience before he became the dictator of Rome. To begin, Julius Caesar was the first dictator in Roman history,causing a lot of problems with the council and the people.
How could the US education system fail to teach its students world history in its world history classes? One would think that the diversity of this great nation would be represented in the curriculum, but this simply isn’t true. Because in the United States the Western Europeans are deemed the “victors” of history. This is because the founders of the US hailed from these lands and at one point, Europeans had colonized nearly every continent on this earth. Because of this, American students are being taught ignorance indirectly, European culture is superior because that's the only culture they know is “important enough” to be taught in schools.
