we all know the defense style of socrates.. don't get anywhere by asking questions.. he did this in the face of critical questions directed at him.. what if a man had come out and said, socrates, my philosopher, that the question would not be answered with a question.. aha fuck you, the basis of the philosophy of all western civilization.. here's life like that.. like a cotton thread..

if socrates made that defense now, the judge says in the second sentence, okay, we understand, and continues: write! i do not accept the accusations thrown at me... as a small cog in the legal system, i love this system*
