image for Socrates Rearrested and Hemlocked Again for Corrupting the Morals of Athenian Young Rioters
Zeus re-decreed death to the gadfly of Athens

The young of Athens are at it again as they raise their voices in protest against the oppressive policies of their elders. When an innocent young Greek was killed by the police of this archipelago's right wing government, the youth of Athens have risen up in protest.

Government sources have denounced the rioters as misguided youngsters with no respect for the gods and led astray by the new fangled theories of so called philosphers.

The arrest of Socrates' remains and the resentencing of his bones to hemlock poisoning seems to be the government's only hope to restore order to Athens.

Government officials condemned the novel ideas of such radicals as Socrates and declared their continued devotion to the gods of Mount Olympus.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
