Exactly what liberties were the Athenians so worried about losing to the Persians?
>>
the right to own slaves

Right to boipussy

1. THEY DID NOT WANT TO BE CONQUERED TO "AVOID LOSING LIBERTIES", BUT TO AVOID LOSING THEIR INDEPENDENCE.

2. "ANCIENT ATHENIANS" DID NOT HAVE A CONCEPT OF "LIBERTIES"; YOU ARE ANACHRONISTICALLY PROJECTING YOUR OWN PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS; THINK BEFORE ARTICULATING WHATEVER TRANSCURS THROUGH YOUR MIND.

3. IF YOU CANNOT INTUITIVELY COMPREHEND WHY WOULD A PEOPLE NOT WANT TO BE CONQUERED BY ANOTHER, ANY DISCOURSE WITH YOU IS FUTILE.

Liberty to keep their women from leaving the house.

Man, how times have changed.

They just wanted to no be subjects, that's it. Nobody wants to pay some faggy dude in eyeliner a million drachmes a year so he doesn't burn your city down.

>>3500253
Look it up, speedracer
It means someone who took power by force

>>3499637
Self-determination.
Parrhesia - the right to have a say in their country's governance.
The right to consider themselves superior to everyone else.

No, it means any ruler that operates outside the Politeia. Peisistratus took power once by finding a really tall woman and convincing people that she was Athena and that she wanted him to be tyrant.

>>3500256
Even Herodotus said that story is probably fake.

They'd lose their independence and authority? Citizenship meant something in Athens beyond tax status and work/immigration rights, you know.
