This honor, virtue, morality and patriotism that you are talking about; What is?

The young people who gathered around Socrates were from different groups: the rich, such as Plato and Alcibiades, who enjoyed Socrates’ satirical analysis of Athenian democracy; The likes of Antisthenes, who praised Master’s indifference and turned it into a religion; And anarchists (in modern parlance) like Aristotle, who dreamed of a world in which there would be no slaves, no bosses, no subjects, and everyone would be completely free like Socrates.

Execution of Socrates:

Socrates replies: “Those who do so are not without reason; Because they think they will benefit from it… I do not see any benefit in eating the cup of poison later. If I eat a little later it will make fun of me; “Because I will show interest in life and save for myself what I think is nothing.”

Socrates asks a servant in prison what he should do, and he replies that he has nothing to do but swallow the poison and walk for a while to feel heaviness in his leg, after which he must lie down to do the poison.
