I’ve just gotten the DVD of “300.” I intend to watch it as frequently as my work schedule permits, in the coming days and weeks. This is one of those rare treasures that come from treefrog Hollywood- a film that isn’t afraid to tell the truth.
Freedom isn’t free. Eternal vigilance is a heavy price to pay for the fruits of liberty, but it is one that neither the Spartans nor the Americans have flinched at for even a moment. The Spartans faced down the Persian slave-machine, and the Americans do the same with the Islamist one.
I find myself wishing that Sparta’s traditions had survived from antiquity. A Greece ruled by the Spartan traditions and Spartan people instead of by the vapid, homosexual, degenerate Athenians would be a powerful ally indeed in the War on Terror. A Greece ruled by such a Sparta would undoubtedly relish the chance to teach the unspeakably evil nation of Persia yet another lesson in the fighting merit of free men over that of slaves.
Unfortunately, such a Sparta no longer exists. However, the tradition of freedom, and of free men fighting in its defense, lives on. It lives on in the hearts and minds and bodies of every man, woman and child of the United States of America. It lives on in the noble fight to save our freedom by eliminating the slavery of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran. It lives on in the soul of a nation at peace, at war, forever endowed with liberty and the prosperity bestowed on it by a merciful and loving Almighty.
May God bless these United States.
UPDATE: At the end of the day, anyone who’s not in favor of Sparta is objectively pro-Persia. Notice how few liberals are willing to attack the sins of the ultimate tyrannical slaver-state, Persia? They admire it for its unspeakable sexual depravity. But every tiny foible of Sparta (whether real, or grossly exaggerated by their pederast Athenian adversaries) is blown out of proportion. This is very typical of the dishonest tactics employed by the Left. Even a noble hero of immortal renown like Leonidas is not immune from their slanders.
