Democracy was born in Athens, yet vital civic engagement and fair debate in Athens descended into populism and paralysis. Can we compare the demagogue Cleon to President Trump; the Athenian Empire to modern America; or the stubborn island of Melos to Brexit Britain? How did a second referendum save the Athenians from a bloodthirsty decision?
