  1. It doesn’t take a genius to know that any organization thrives when it has two leaders. Go ahead, name a country that doesn’t have two presidents. A boat that sets sail without two captains…

  2. Sparta was such a weird place. Their political set up was fucking weird. Two Kings, a 28 member House of Lords(the Gerousia), Ephors, the citizen Spartans in the Apella, the helot slave class, etc… I’ve always found them interesting because they were just so weird.
