The Bad Old Times

If you ever need a convincing argument for someone who strongly believes that “in former times, everything was better”, try this: Ask them if they believe in the Greek Philosophy, the principles of logic, deduction and society on which todays wealth and freedom are built. If they do, let them know this:

“The Greeks considered it normal for any man to be drawn to the beauty of a boy—just as much if not more than to that of a woman.”

As with everything, the past is not better in every respect than today and vice versa. That said, we do learn from past mistakes and try to avoid them and more often than not, we succeed. This also is human nature.
