“History is always repeating itself but each time, the price goes up,” once stated the famous American historian Will Durant.
This certainly holds true for the modern West, which I find to have strong parallels with Ancient Greece.
Like the West, the ancient Greeks underwent their own dark ages.
This was followed by the Archaic age, which, like the West’s medieval and early modern era, gave form to the distinct Greek culture and society.
It would give rise to a growing merchant class which would, later on, be instrumental in overthrowing aristocratic regimes in many Greek city-states.
In addition, new trade links and improvements in marine navigation spurred on an era of colonisation.
During this time, both a dictatorial land power (Sparta) and a democratic naval power (Athens) emerged, analogous to the Russian Empire and the Anglo-Saxon world.

The Classical period, which saw Greece reach the zenith of its power, culture, and prosperity arose after both Sparta and Athens joined in an alliance to defeat a common foe, the Persians, in two great wars.
In our modern iterations, these great wars were the World Wars and the common enemy Imperialist Germany.
It is from the classical period that most works and literature of Ancient Greece are known.

But in geopolitical and military terms, what parallels can we draw?
