Nutty religious crusades, Babylon on fire, avaricious lying politicians, concerns about cheap labor/slaves taking our jobs, lavish palace renovations, to expand one’s empire or pull one’s head in and fortify the nation state dilemmas – honestly this shit all feels SO old that NO WONDER there is a Stoic philosophy revival.
My personal favorite is Epictetus – Greek Slave turned Stoic Philosopher and Secretary to the Emperor Nero. Astrological Trivia: Donald Trump’s Moon is conjunct Nero’s Sun-Pluto.
Anyway, Epictetus was a Minimalist, Anti-Fragile Personality and a Genius. He inspired Marcus Aurelius and many more contemporary figures with great need to call on resilience.
“Never call yourself a philosopher, nor talk a great deal among the unlearned about theorems, but act conformably to them. Thus, at an entertainment, don’t talk how persons ought to eat, but eat as you ought.”
