A great post I found from a member of the Hellenistai forum

Well, I’d thought of going back to this blog’s theme of Urbanism, Modernism, and Polytheism and making a detailed and rather silly post about the band Army of Lovers and why Hellenes everywhere should love them, even if they aren’t a Hellenic band, but I’ve been getting very spacey and I’m putting that one on the back-burner for now to bring you something that makes a little more sense:

I haven’t been sleeping very well this last week, so it was starting to feel a little “too long, can’t read” maybe a quarter through it, but it’s definitely worth the read. In short, the general gist I got out of this one is that with a better translation of the Maxims of Delphi, “’Επαγγέλου μηδενί’, which was once ‘make promises to no-one’ becomes ‘renounce no-one'”. Mano has sourced his statements adequately and explains himself and his reasoning rather well.
