Beautiful Fantasy: Spartan Justice for All

I need to write a short story and have it done by the end of December (not that anyone cares and/or is reading this), so I’m reblogging a post from almost a year and a half ago ’cause I kinda like it….and you (someone) might enjoy it also. On some level. Wish me luck, ’cause I’m failing so far with the story. But I’ve still got almost a month left………..

Laughter Over Tears

Where do I begin? Did I love the movie “300”? Yes. Was it based in reality? Somewhat. Here and there. Just put a little Wite-out on the ugly parts and blow up the good parts by 1,000.

Well, it’s kinda like how, over time, certain people and/or events become…let’s say…changed from what actually happened or who they actually were, and all of this becomes viewed, in time, through a distorted lens that’s only telling part of the story. Yeah, yeah, history is written by the victors. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Examples? No problem. Two that stand out in my mind are the Rhodes Scholarship and Margaret Sanger. When one thinks of a Rhodes Scholar and the associated scholarship, one generally conjures up benign brainiacs, geeks and nerds of Mensa or Jeopardy! qualifications, whose brains are bigger, synapses fire faster, or maybe are simply gifted in the retention of trivia and facts.

    • I know, I forgot too, and read an article somewhere recently that reminded me.
      And thanks about the story. If you know you’re right, that’s a good sign!

  1. Aaaaaahhh! Thanks, Henry. I was poised to stay in the library from 10 am to 5 pm today, but guess what. My job had OT available for the first time in two years or something. So guess where I am. That’s right. Not writing! Aaaaahhhh!!!!

  2. I kind of smile, yes History it’s not what most people who don’t read, or study it in depth, is all about, merely what we get is the Myth, behind the so call facts, facts that need to be judge, weight, and then interpreted, through time that always has been the case, and today it’s even worse, we have Hollywood, making stories that pass as history to the masses! 🙂
