Dear Perikles. How would Socrates solve the Greek
dilemma?
He had a wicked sense of humour so, he might have
said: "No idea; it's all Greek to me".
Socrates got people like you and me to solve
a problem by asking us a series of questions.
The answers his subjects/students gave led each of them
to the answer.
Now known as the "Socratic method".
This is the opposite of the modern politicians
whose method leads you by suggestion,
to give the answer the politician wants to hear.
Example:
Clegg. "Leaving the EU would cost Britain
700,000 jobs. Does this worry you?"

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
