Fucking, Relationships, and Sex: Law Boy, Esq @The_Law_Boy Plato returns from the dead] Plato: so who's that girl, are you together? Me: nah, it's purely platonic. Plato: ..what does platonic mean? Me: it means we don't have sex. Plato: what the fuck 18/08/2018 06:32 anarchomoop: gunsandfireandshit: Even funnier thing to imagine: resurrecting Diogenes too and telling him that “Platonic” relationships means not fucking, he’d probably laugh himself back to death. So I actually know the origin of this term because it came up when I studied Plato in my classes.  Basically, in ancient Greece it was a super common practice for teachers to fuck their students.  Like all the time.  It was considered a way for the student to “pay” the teacher.  Plato thought this was bullshit.  He felt that a student could not properly learn from someone who was truly only interested in having sex with them.  He didn’t fuck his students and derided those who did.  Other teachers who refused to fuck their students were said to have “platonic” teaching relationships with them – so named because they were following Plato’s example.  So the reason it’s called a Platonic relationship is because Plato was heavily anti-teachers-fucking-their-students and it’s one of the few things he was ever even remotely correct about.

Bad, True, and Good: Keep this in mind the next time you are about to repeat a rumor or spread gossip In ancient Greece (469 399 BC). Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about Diogenes?" Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test. Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance. That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?" "No," the man said, "Actually, I just heard about it. All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?" No, on the contrary... So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that may be bad, even though you're not certain it's true?" The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?" No, not really." Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?" The man was bewildered and ashamed. This is an example of why Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem. It also explains why Socrates never found out that Diogenes was banging his wife Socrates Didnt Like Gossip

 In ancient Greece (469 399 BC). Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.
 One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you
 know what I just heard about Diogenes?"
 Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a
 little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test.
 Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.
 That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's
 take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have
 you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
 "No," the man said, "Actually, I just heard about it.
 All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's
 try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me
 about Diogenes something good?"
 No, on the contrary...
 So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that
 may be bad, even though you're not certain it's true?"
 The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still
 pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness. Is
 what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?"
 No, not really."
 Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor
 Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?"
