The charges arose as Socrates went through Athens, offering his teachings to anyone who wished to listen.
Among these men were sons of the wealthy, and those with time for leisure.
These sons took it upon themselves to do as Socrates does, going so far as to imitate the way he talks and the manner in which he carries himself.
They used their newfound "inquisition" to investigate the ways of common people, often bringing out or revealing information that is quite sensitive or personal.
Needless to say, the people of Athens didn't take it too kindly...
Who could have inspired such harsh judgement in the minds of Athens' youth?
And so, tracing these teachings back to the source, Socrates was convicted of corrupting the minds of the young.
Curse you, Socrates! You drive the youth of Athens to expose the faults of others. You are a teacher most vile!
Socrates now stands before a jury of 500, defending his case... and his life.
I'd ask what I could have taught them but it seems that you are all clueless as to the answer!
You press these charges against me so quickly?
To think that I have taught them anything more than inquiry...
You have accused me of planting evil deeds in the minds of men, and yet not one man seems to know what I have planted.
Can he make it through??? Tune in next week for more...
