TWO WORLD VIEWS -- Even Today?

THESEUS illustrates two directions of political movement
in basic form: Populist and Authoritarian.
These are timeless political forces that tend to be inclusive or exclusive -- peaceful or hostile -- power to the many or few--
each represented by an ancient city at a crucial time in history,
each with a different world view.

The Athenian viewpoint [Populist] -- seeks to spread power and opportunity to common people at every level -- and encouraging trade and cooperation between nations.
Current examples: Canada--America--Australia--Western Europe--Japan

While in the Knossos viewpoint [Authoritarian] -- power and opportunity are concentrated at the top -- with nations usually in a hostile struggle for dominance, and control of land and resources. MORE
Current examples: large portions of the Middle East--Asia--Africa--Russia
