And this was paid for by the slaves and after the Athenian League was formed by the other 
members, who decided it was more convenient to not join into the military defense, but to pay
taxes. Money flowed into Athens and so did the artistic, literary and philosophical talent.

Those present at the _Death of Socrates_ according to Plato were from other city states, just as 
NYC became the hub of the arts after WWII. Artists go where the money is.

As the historical Buddha said, “Hatred does not stop by hatred at any time; hatred stops only by love."
