That here, obedient to their laws, We lie...”

It may be timeless, but ancient Sparta did a poor job of passing those ideas onto their posterity. Today's spartans are a bunch of lazy socialists who cry and whine because they're government isn't taking care of them enough. Leonidas wouldn't recognize them.
