Battle of Salamis and Our Modern Civilization

It is said that the Greeks defeated the Persians in the naval battle of Salamis on September 29, 480 BCE.

It’s not often one can justifiably note an event of 2,500 years ago, but the Battle of Salamis may be such an occasion.

Here are some reflections for your consideration on the consequences for our modern civilization of that defeat of the Persians so long ago.

I would be most interested in your thoughts and feedback.
