    Within the scope of this research, we will analyze and critique the arguments presented by Forde in his article, which is devoted to Thucydides’ work.

He was American patriot that would not give up his ideas and dreams and was willing to fight for them at all costs and against all odds. Yet he seems to have been a skilled political intellectual.

Nevertheless, the role of the government, regardless of the state, tends to be slightly oppressive since any government tends to regulate the relationships of people that inevitably affect private life of any individual. In this regard, there are no…
