Storyboard Text

  • Hello, my name is Socrates and I am a Greek philosopher from the classical period. I was born in Athens during around 469 B.C.
  • I grew up with learning the basic greek education and followed in my father's footsteps to work as a stonemasonry.
  • This is my wife, Xanthippe, who is obviously much younger than me. She gave birth to three boys of mine.
  • My life is told mostly from contemporary sources, the dialogues coming from Plato, Aristotle and a couple of other sources.
  • I will soon be charged for refusing to recognise the gods acknowledged by the state and sent to exile by being poisoned.
  • I believe that the purpose of a government is to provide happiness for the people. It consists of one leader who has a greater understanding for themselves, and has the wisdom, ability, and knowledge to incorporate that into a government.
  • I also think that governments are instituted by the smarts of a person for he who knows and has the greater ability to reason and make choices that bring true happiness to himself and people.
  • Governments should be expected to provide a understanding for the people and obtain great knowledge and good decision skills that can keep a good reputation for the people along with providing happiness to all.
