The city of Sparta is considered by many historical figures the most powerful polis in ancient Greece, with its brave people and strict laws separating the Lacedaemonians from other cities, contributing to the victories in the Persian (499–449BC) and the Peloponnesian wars (431–404BC). Nevertheless, this wasn’t the only distinctive element of the Spartans since their gender balance and their focus on the involvement of women would be a feature only found in Sparta.

The superiority of men was established in all Greek societies but the scale of it in Sparta wasn’t that much of an obstacle to female involvement. Spartan…


The most important event in modern Russian history through Western and Soviet interpretations

The Russian Revolution was the basis for one of the most powerful political ideologies developed throughout the course of history; the more radical view of socialism, communism. It had been a theory since Karl Marx presented the idea in the mid-19th century but it had never been applied until the end of the Revolution in the Russian Empire and the establishment of the Bolsheviks as the ruling party, in June 1923.

This article identifies and evaluates the different interpretations and views on the contemporary debate, which aims at answering the question of whether the Russian Revolution of 1917 was the…


How Canada Deviated from Both the British and the American Systems?

Since the beginning of the 20th Century, America has made a strong case for getting the title of “the best nation in the history of the world.” Nonetheless, the influence of the self-proclaimed “greatest nation” has not surpassed the borders in the North. Canada has been unique, and that is why people love Canada.

I am Canadian, and I can reassure you that there is a clear distinction between Canada and the United States, and this article points out the political and historical aspects. …


Brainwashing Through Temporarily Successful Economic Policies

Picture from https://wallpaperaccess.com/fidel-castro

There have been thousands of historical accounts that have shown Castro’s ability to overturn the Fascist government of Batista and dramatically improve the lives of the Cuban people from the 1960s and onwards.

And I get it. Although he advocated for a more central agenda while he did not have the government, the Americans would withdraw the resources and leave the Batista government unprotected; he was a communist in the heart.

This is fine, considering that he had to protect and help the people of the lower classes. A notion that is far from being fine is that this was…


Gary Vaynerchuk’s Strategies and Unrealistic Assumptions

CryptoPunk NFTs (Source: bravenewcoin.com)

Look, I had never been a tech-savvy person.

I like to read the emails from the New York Times newsletter and stay up to date with the world. This is what has helped me understand the concept of NFTs.

My warning for this article is that you don’t have to take it personally (let alone considering it financial advice).

I’m writing this article after having studied 12 blog posts, listened to 2 podcasts, seen 5 videos, and tried selling my NFT once.

The only thing I can reassure you is that:

  1. I will be blatantly honest with you,
  2. I will…


Warning: You’re Losing Money By Not Using Data Analysis

Letting the people know the services you are offering is the most severe pain in a businessman’s neck.

Marketing, to put it otherwise.

The poetic definition by The New York Times, which described the term as “the art of telling stories so enthralling that people lose track of their wallets,” didn’t help Bob, who is trying to pay his bills while managing the finances of his new startup business.

The American Marketing Association defines marketing as “the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at…


Will There Be a Crypto Bubble Burst?

Cryptocurrencies, or crypto for short, can be easily explained as “digital money”, that you can use for various reasons, from buying a coffee to getting paid in them.

There are hundreds of crypto-coins available right now (about 6,700 according to CoinMarketCap.com) and the number is only getting bigger day by day.

Some of the most popular, that you might have heard include:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Litecoin
  • Ripple

If you are a beginner, you surely have a lot of questions about these coins that we are hearing more and more lately.

How are they created, who owns them, what are they worth…


Digitalisation and International Relations in the Post-COVID Era

On Wednesday, I had the honour to attend a webinar that I will remember for a long, long time. Organised by Hellenic Initiative Canada, this was projected to be a conversation with Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the Prime Minister of Greece. Even though he could not make it to the event, since he had a meeting with the President of the Hellenic Republic, the webinar was in no way less exciting or important. Nikos Dendias, the former Minister of National Defence and current Foreign Minister of Greece, ‘stood up’ for the challenge and was the Greek government representative for the webinar.
