A TV ad for The 300 describes the movie (about the Battle of Thermopylae) as "History's first battle...for FREEDOM."

1) Please see my entry for 19th July 2006. Exactly the same words apply here.

2) "History's first battle for freedom" -- as long as, y'know, we don't count the resistance against Sargon, the conquest of Sumeria, the wars of the Egyptian empire, Joshua Fought The Battle Of Jericho (And The Walls Came Tumbling Down), etc.

3) Yes, there truly was no freer society than ANCIENT SPARTA. Ya srsly.
